Great casual place with good food at reasonable price

Casual, comfortable place. Family breakfast and had a mix of pancakes, eggs Benedict, scrambled eggs and French toast - all the meals were a good size, tasty and the people very nice. Went back again and would recommend to others.

I was in Arcata to visit my daughter who is a student at Humboldt State University. We took a day trip to Trinidad, a lovely beach town just north of Arcata and we had lunch at Trinidad Bay Eatery & Gallery. I ordered the clam chowder in a bread bowl and it was hands down the BEST clam chowder! The... More

The Eatery was closed ( landlord dispute) for over a year and has been reopened for almost 2 years by the same owners. It was always a wholesome, cheerful place to have breakfast and lunch. It still is..If you are traveling on 101 it would behoove you to get off at the Trinidad exit have a wonderful breakfast/lunch/dinner & then... More

This is a must do, when in Trinidad. The crab omelet is the absolute best! Their french toast is also a favorite!

Nice place to have breakfast before visiting the Trinidad Memorial Lighthouse which is just down the block. I had the crab omelet which was a little pricey, but generously stuffed with crab. My daughter had the French toast which she really liked. Cute little gift shop attached to the restaurant.

We came straight here after a long 6-hr drive and took refuge in this cute little eatery on a rainy morning. The food was excellent (so much breakfast for such a great price!), the customer service was great, and the atmosphere was cozy. They also have a cool little gift shop. But beware, this place gets packed!

Good place to stop for a meal when visiting Trinidad. We were here for breakfast. I had the biscuit and gravy which was great. I requested for half and order which was plenty. The coffee was yumm. The waitress was very sweet and friendly. The food here is very well priced.

They do not serve them any longer! Really disappointing. HOWEVER, their food is abundant and delicious. Friendly staff - great place to hang.

Really great food! Cold beer, great wine list. A Treasure in Trinidad. If we lived closer, we'd be regulars!
