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.

Good basic food. Plentiful portions, all fresh and tasty. Service was quick, efficient and friendly. We were very glad that we stopped here during our travels, and will make an effort to stop here again next time we are in the area.

The whole area and its main street have that small town USA feel. The atmosphere in this establishment was excellent, as was the service. The breakfasts looked great, with generous portions. I opted for the lunch menu,... More
