Roquefort is one of my favorite restaurants in Murphys, located on their quaint Main St, They serve small plates daily and brunch on the weekend, but they are known locally for their dozen or so grilled cheese offerings. My favorite is the black and white (white cheddar with dark bing cherries) while my husband prefers the triple cream brie with... More

Meals at Mineral have been a highlight for our trips to Calaveras County. Maya and crew have moved on to Roquefort in Murphys, described as a "grilled cheese-small plates bar". http://www.roquefortmurphys.com/ We are visiting the area this weekend and will report back on Roquefort.

We were surprised and pleased to find out about a vegetarian restaurant in a small town in the mining area of northern California. Who would have thought? What a great discovery. The food is gourmet--another surprise--and delicious. It is definitely the place to go for outstanding non-standard vegetarian food that is also beautifully presented. As a side note, as elegant...

Every time I visit my friends who live in Murphys, I have to stop at Mineral. It truly is one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten in. The chef/owner may have a bit of an ego but he is truly that good. On the other hand, this is not a place for babies and people looking for big portions... More

We started with the re-interpretation of "guacamole" and it was really fantastic. Crushed avocado with an array of spices and flavorings that really popped. Next up were the vegetarian burgers which were also excellent. We finished with a totally unnecessary cupcake. Normally vegetarian restaurants are graded on a separate scale ("pretty good for a veggie place"), but Mineral was just... More

We are vegetarians and were looking forward to Mineral. We were even ok with their higher prices, but when we arrived we were disappointed to learn they were closed on Wednesday nights. (actually it was ok as we went to Doke Sushi, which was very good). So we came back the next day for lunch and had the veggie burger... More

I had heard of Mineral from friends who are vegetarian but even I was amazed at the food. The menu is small and daily with changes with what the chef finds fresh. I was there with my dear friend and both of us have been adding more vegetarian foods to our menus, We started with a lovely salad of fresh... More

Awesome Pineapple Burger and Land Scallops. Chef Steve never fails to amaze us with his creations! Had the most delicious and savory lunch. And we're not even vegetarian!

We stopped in here for a quick lunch, thinking that the patio looked very welcoming and the food on people's plates looked fresh. I was in the mood for a salad but the men of the household had burgers in mind; we got both here. I had the papaya salad, which was tasty, creative, and beautifully prepared. My husband opted...

We had a couple of friends suggest Mineral knowing we are foodies. It was a delicious dinner - everything we ate was lovely. This is worth a stop - vegetarian or not. It's true the burger is amazing.
