After being on the road for about a week travelling the coast, we were very happy to go out for a "real meal". Both of our meals were delicious. I had the curry bowl with noodles. It was packed full of veggies and the broth was amazing. Coffee was delicious, on the strong side which we love, without bitterness. We... More

I loved it. I liked the atmosphere and the deco. Be aware that the close earlier than it's said on TripAdvisor. I had the best nachos ever. The service was very friendly. It has to be great in summer and sit outside.

Kind of hippie dippie if you ask me. Some good stuff infused with a whole lot of holistic earth mother hooey.

Highly recommended. I remember the salad was out of this world! Very friendly staff. We sat outside on the deck with amazing ocean views while we ate our wonderful lunch. The garden area was full of birds and flowers. It doesn't really get much prettier or relaxing than this.

We had a great lunch here. The food was perfect, the ambience was laid back and comfortable, and the service was very friendly. Prices seemed a little high but we still felt it was worth it.

We ate lunch here and all four of us enjoyed our tasty food. I had the steak and brie melt and it was delicious ... the bread tasted freshly home made.

Coffee, sandwiches, cakes etc. Basic seating and busy when we visited. Good and varied food to eat in or out. Great for breakfast or light lunch although some portions looked large to us. good value

When ever we visit Mendocino, we have lunch here. They have a lovely outside patio. Their clam chowder can't be beat. I always get the clam chowder and Caesar salad combo. They also serve with that locally made sour dough bread.

The food choices are eclectic and vary from Thai to seafood to a few meats. We enjoyed Brazilian mixed seafood in a mildly spicy cream sauce with plenty of seafood. Also excellent was the special, a very tender pork chop in a blueberry sauce. The wine list is mainly from Anderson Valley and Mendocino. This place could use an upgrade... More
