The juevos rancheros came on perfectly crisped corn tortillas with black beans, french and flavorful salsa, and the perfect texture of eggs laid over sour cream on top. My husband says that bacon was outstanding in flavor and crispness! We enjoyed talking with wonderful locals...More

The absolute best breakfast I've had in the USA!!! The food was all local, fresh cooked and had lovely flavours. The team were really friendly, accomodating and had some great advice about the area. Thank you Queenie and Co!

Friendly, fast and delicious. We left Mendocino wondering if we'd find a place for breakfast along the way. Be sure to have their fresh bread and a steamed hot chocolate!

Stopped for lunch on our coastal visit. Staff was friendly and accommodating for locals and travelers. Seating was available indoors and outdoors. The setting is casual and eclectic. Burgers, salad, and beers were delicious.

Great spot, great views, terrific lunch food. Unique is the best word and in a small town right on the coastal bluffs of Elk. If you travel this highway, you have to stop here. No kidding.

We just happened on this place -- went in --were greeted warmly and the food was tasty and did not take long to prepare. It is small and cozy place-- has an intimate touch/feeling to it.

Nice folks, pleasant room, but a bit disappointing if you expected great. The food took a very long time to come (only moderately busy) and it was fresh but not that flavorful. Hoped for more, but still pretty nice.
