I was disappointed with the quality and prices of the baked goods offered here, over priced. Coffee was average, not great. Seemed like the entire bakery was way overpriced. I will not be coming here again.

Even though there are a good number of places to eat in Mendocino, we ended up coming here twice (once for lunch and once for a coffee & pastry) – it’s the kind of place you’ll want to return to. Even when busy the staff members were friendly and welcoming. We collectively drooled over the new cookie that they’d brought... More

We got some take-out lunch and coffees here and both were really flavorful. BLT had amazing bacon and came in a focaccia with added avocado, you could taste the freshness. My wife got the tuna salad on a gluten-free buckwheat loaf. Bread was absolutely lovely, I would go back just for that. Came with a small side salad, again really... More

Yummy breakfast or lunch location - espresso coffees,specialty teas, homemade pastries, quiches, soups, etc. You'll definitely be sitting with the "Mendocino locals" & enjoy an unpretentious & relaxed breakfast or lunch. Excellent for take-out, on-the-go or picnic lunches too.

This is a friendly place, crowded when we arrived, but with good service, the ubiquitous Thanksgiving coffee, and lots of seating.

Loved everything about this place. The people were very helpful. Bakery items were incredible and the quiches were loaded with vegetables. Pies were exceptionally good.

If you are looking for a place that makes good coffee and has a snack to offer then this is it for Mendocino. The shop itself is quite tight in space. They keep busy with customers so you may have to stand for a bit and wait for a seat. It appears they do a brick business all day and... More

Lots of kids. Coffee. Slow. The burrito was just ok. The Greek salad handsome but really not too tasty. Disappointed.

Sorry you were disappointed, if you decide to return and don't enjoy something, please don't hesitate to exchange for something else! People usually love the Greek salad! Sorry you didn't... hope to see you again sometime soon! More
