Menu a tad offbeat....

This is a neat little breakfast & lunch cafe in the middle of downtown Fortuna on the main drag. The menu features regular fare, but also features items made up by the establishment. Food is homemade, fresh, and tasty! Good sized portions at a reasonable price! Homemade soups and good sandwiches... read more

This is one of our favorite places to come for breakfast. My guys love their chicken fried steak with a side of biscuits smothered in gravy. They have awesome cinnamon french toast and I also like the Club sandwich. Staff is very friendly. They are great about substituting a side salad for the usual high calorie sides. The only complaint... More

This had great reviews so I planned for our group to stop for lunch. Turns out that the local high school goes there for lunch as well and fills the place completely. The wait was not long - and certainly worth it. It is nice to find a non-chain local place with good food, good service and so popular. They... More

This place was your friendly, neighborhood...perfect for breakfast. It was obviously full of locals, but the staff treated us as if they had known us forever. Our waitress was funny and could balance a huge number of plates at once...very talented:). Food was wonderful...the hasbrowns were sooo good. I didn't want an English muffin so they substituted fresh fruit (watermelon,... More

I have only been once but maybe I should revisit it?? To me it was identical to a Denny's. Cheap, greasy and lacking. So surprised it gets such top ratings. I shall revisit soon.

Awesome breakfast, coffee and the staff were nice. Not many choices except for fast food in Fortuna. The Redwood Cafe is only open until 3pm.
