Must Visit while in Town.

Always a must stop when visiting. The food is always delicious, fresh and local. The store has excellent products and a place to find some nice gifts. Won't be disappointed.

This a nice casual place for lunch. The flavored are amazing. You stand in line to order, your food is delivered. Tables are often full. The only hang up I have is that they have changed a dish each time we have visited because they run out of ingredients. It is disconcerting to look forward to a salad with goat... More

This is a great place to pickup gourmet sandwiches before you float down the river. I think it is overrated for eating in. It takes a LONG time for orders to be ready, so be prepared to wait. But the food is great when it does arrive! Closed for dinner. Not great for kids, with all that waiting and different... More

To me this place is average at best, but in all fairness I see lots of people really looking like they enjoy the food here. So evidently, not my cup of tea, but plenty of other folks feel differently. So given them a chance and make up your own mind.

Sandwich to go was so good! Have the turkey sandwich and have it heated. Then go to Russian hill wines for the view. Buy a bottle of wine and lunch. Great people, great wine, great view. Totally go.

We were on our to the Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve for a bit of Redwood peeping. Stopped at the Big Bottom Market for several boxed lunches. Never had such a good lunch on the wooden tables in the quiet of a park. Highly recommend this establishment.

This was my go to for breakfast; their vegetarian biscuits and gravy were excellent. The shop has nice locally sourced goods like: books and clothes, but the main attraction is the chill atmosphere and friendly staff.

Just the most perfect café you could wish to eat in, the sandwiches and salads are incredibly tasty, with a great selection of wines too. You know how you can sometimes stumble upon a little gem, well this one was of those times!! We were actually looking for some tourist information on the Redwood Forest in the area and just... More

Been here many many times,. Great for lunch, wonderful healthy eats, yummy salads. Wonderful sandwiches, though I don't eat bread or meat, you can order most any type of sandwich with meat. Fun atmosphere, I highly recommend it.
