We had a good vegan lunch there, Thai Burrito, an open burrito with tofu and beans, and a noodle dish. Four people, about $70 for lunch. Food was good, felt pricey, though. Nice atmosphere, nice service.

This was a nice moderately priced cafe. The food was very good and the outdoor patio is a fun place to dine. They have a varied menu so there should be something for everyone. Highly recommend.

We came into Mendocino late in the evening - about 8 pm - and were pleased to find this establishment still serving on a week day. The meal was filling - almost too much food. The price was a bit steep for the meal and generally a little higher for the food then we usually see. However, the food was... More

We had lunch and dinner here - both out on the sunny deck. This is an old standby for us. They have good everything from creative salads, Thai, southwest, and American -- plus delicious home made desserts. The wait staff are friendly and attentive. Some people bring their polite dogs and now the gardens are beautiful. We always enjoy it... More

We ate here for lunch and dinner while staying in Mendocino. Both meals were well prepared and the portions were generous. The service was attentive; excellent wines were ​available in both bottles and by the glass; the outdoor seating is a plus! It was sunny for lunch but no umbrellas were outside. At dinner, heaters were outside but not turned... More

Old, worn out interior; friendly but unprofessional service, below average food, dirty dishes. I was disappointed and would not go again. Lot of thai dishes on the menu that have no spice / taste to it at all. Deserts were boring, too. Overall, too much money for too little value.

Had a fantastic Clam Chowder and mixed green salad, along with a Hamburger. The meat on the burger was exceptionally good. I believe it was from a local source. They have a patio as well as inside to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner. Everything that came out of the kitchen looked great. Great service, good prices.

The food here is as good as it gets. I usually forgo the menu and go straight for their daily specials. I have never had a bad meal. The service is ok. Not great, not horrible. But it could use a little improvement. They have a nice outside patio for dining when the weather is beautiful. I always stop in... More

Enjoyed the Thai burrito with a yummy peanut sauce. Almost too large to finish, but I managed to eat every bite filled with brown rice,veggies & tofu (meat, shrimp or chicken available). The menu is extensive with something for everyone in the family. The dessert menu looked mighty tempting too. This is a place you'll want to come back to... More

Came across this little (what looked like little from the front) restaurant. Originally went to a hotel for lunch and all they served was brunch. We did NOT want brunch that day. We wandered around until we found this café with a little window sign. What a pleasant surprise. I wanted to go back the next day and eat again.... More
