I would start by saying that I would have given this restaurant an Excellent rating, (my meal and my wife's were delicious), but my children did not care for their Vegetarian meals. They said that it was too spicy....and I took a taste and would have to agree that their food was probably a little too spicy for a child's... More

We had a late breakfast and loved it. My husband had biscuits and gravy, which were vegan, (but he said it tasted very much like real sausage gravy). I don't remember the name of my dish, but it was roasted potatoes covered in steamed vegetables; it may not sound like much, but it was beautiful to look at and absolutely... More

Stopped here for a loaf of bread. Bought three. Each was even better than the previous one. A must if you are in the area. Expect a line but it moves quickly. Try the samples and you will also buy several loaves.

We came here on the recommendation from our hotel and we were happy we did! A nice dining experience in a little restaurant near Humboldt State University. Street parking only, which in a heavy downpour was a little daunting, but did not deter us. The service was great and pleasantly accommodating to our dietary restrictions, which was very appreciated.

I started with the green salad with herb vinegar dressing......they make it in house and it's loaded with dill. It was one of the best dressings I've ever had. Really wanted to take some home, but it has to be refrigerated. The greens were so fresh.....all locally grown. For my entrée, I had a peanut Thai noodle dish. Delicious!!!! We... More

First, let's talk about the food: the vegan biscuits and gravy was pretty good, but not the best vegan biscuits and gravy I have had on this trip. It was also the most expensive. The biscuits were pretty good but the gravy was kind of not interesting - but the tofu sausage (made locally!) was incredibly flavorful and delicious and... More

My husband and I have now had 6-7 different menu items and have simply loved every meal. The staff is very kind and attentive; the surroundings simple and unpretentious. We will be loyal patrons, hopefully for years to come, as we now live in Arcata. We highly recommend this restaurant to vegetarians, especially but I should think, anyone would enjoy... More

Humble decor, but consistently good basic food, good selection, and usually good service in this little cafe. Open for all meals of the day including dessert! Very impressed with the vegan baked goods (such as chocolate cake, ginger cookies, scones etc). Best vegan baked goods in town imho. Breakfast and soups especially notable. You can view a pretty large area... More
