I give every business three chances in case they're having an off day. The food is good, the atmosphere is sweet, but the woman behind the counter has to be the rudest person I've ever encountered in a service business. The owners would do themselves a favor to replace her. Three strikes and you're out! It's a shame. I would... More

Mint is a good lunch spot, as well as a good place for an occasional dinner. Had lunch there yesterday and the tri tip was very good, but definitely could've used better condiments than mustard and mayo. There are so many excellent barbque sauces that I was actually surprised at the mustard-mayo thing. Also shared the turkey fig jam on... More

If you aren't local, it can be difficult to find as its hidden in the tiny "Circus Tree" center, but worth looking for. We live 2 blocks away and go there often for dinner. I noticed that most of the entrees are "dome" shaped which gives a nice amount of food. It's not inexpensive, but everything is totally homemade and... More

Mint is my go to place to eat when I want to have lunch with a friend. The selection is innovative, fresh and tasty. Priced on the higher side but well worth it for the quality you are getting. At the lunch hour they can get busy so be prepared to kick back and enjoy the time in this lovely... More

Easy to find, easy to park, easy to order, easy on the wallet. Varied menu with lots of choices. I thought I would just dash in and go, but ended up hanging out for half an hour enjoying my ham and cheese. Nice place, quiet and relaxing.

We were visiting from out of the area and just stumbled on this place. It was packed with locals. Wonderful food, great service. Total score!

Caught an early movie and wanted a quick, light meal afterwards. Scotts Valley does not usually appeal, but didn't want to drive all the way in to santa cruz. Stopped in at Mint, on Scotts Valley Drive and was very pleased. Nice variety on the menu, very prompt and friendly service, good selection of wines by the glass. I had... More

We go to Mint often and have loved everything that we have ordered. The big daddy tri tip sandwich is my husbands favorite. When you come for lunch it is always a little confusing if you should order and pay at the counter or if they will come to your table. They have done both so I'm never sure what... More

Good place for a quiet lunch. Love the tri-tip sandwich. Outside seating in back. Casual indoor seating. Can get busy at lunch.

Good food, nice eating area inside and a small patio out back. The woman who appears to be the owner is a tad inattentive. You can stand at the counter to place an order and not get acknowledged until she is finished with her tasks at hand. There is no "Welcome, I'll be with you in a minute" Prices are... More
