I have eaten at Redwood Cafe many times, the last in November 2014. The food is always good, fresh and servings are generous. For folks with dietary issues, there are specialty items such as gluten-free. They have recently started having live music during the day... that might work for some, not for others.

I am often stuck eating unhealthy foods when people want to eat out for breakfast. Not at Redwood. They have many delicious and healthy choices on the menu. They have all of the standbys too, and do them quite well. We were visiting from out of town and enjoyed this place so much that we ate there two days in... More

I have gone to Redwood Cafe a handful of times and I am never disappointed. The last time I was there, I got their Gluten Free Strawberry Rhubarb pie-delicious!

MY favorite:The portobello mushroom sandwich. Wonderful eclectic environment includes outdoor seating, rotating art exhibit, music and other entertainment evenings and weekends. Wide selection of always fresh food. Order at the counter and lots of seating. Quick friendly service.

It feels like you really are a guest when you come to eat there. It's far from fancy, but bursts with flavorful dishes and atmosphere

They have sandwiches and some entrees, but breakfast seems to be the best bet here. They also have coffee, wine, and beer. Also lots of baked goods. lots of vegetarian options with tofu and tempeh in them. I think the food is good, but I think a little over priced. Eggs scrambles around $12.

Superb service? VERY FRIENDLY staff. Good portions. Delicious food. Love love love this place. A bit scruffy on the decor. Could use a splash of updating. But. Go in and order any meal and you will leave happy. Have had breakfast here, lunch and dinner. Happily recommend if you are looking for local, good, solid food that is in a... More

We stopped here for breakfast. It's an interesting place with an fun personality. They have a good variety of traditional and health-oriented foods. They also have a stage for live performances, which are listed on their website. Food was very good. We'd definitely visit again.

This isn't my favorite overall restaurant just because I am pretty picky eater. I almost always have to have half the ingredients on my food held. Most people love this place though. It is really cute and the service is good. They offer an SSU discount as well.
