Extensive menu, all day breakfast and $5 Happy Hour apps

Portions are Okay, but limited choices and more money than it's worth. It's a bit on the 70's style HIPPIE, ORGANIC side, so if that's not your thing pick another place. There are several other choices near by.

Food was delicious and it had a laid back atmosphere. We got there before the band so it gave us time to talk and catch up with our daughter. I would describe the food as "comfy food" - I got the grilled cheese and others got the BBQ burger and chicken burger. Service was great too even though you order... More

We like the menu variety. It has a bit of a 60s feel, it is Cotati. Breakfasts are very good. Deserts are good. It is a order at the counter place. Nothing fancy but clean and nice. Good variety of local beers.

Most everything is house-made of great ingredients. If you have dietary issues they will assist in getting you what you need and want. If you want a good grass-fed burger, they have that too! Great desserts and fantastic musical entertainment, enjoyable art within the venue, and some interesting community activities. We love this place and have for as long as... More

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.
