“Local favorite for....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

My all time favorite lunch place for a great BLT. Fun to see many people I know and always a great energy to this eatery and wonderful bakery. Makes the best chocolate pie.

“local hangout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

The food is good, and very fresh. Stop by for a cuppa and a sweet, or have a meal. Better yet, make a meal out of a huge slice of carrot cake. They even have gluten free cookies! Both indoor and outdoor seating, free Wi-fi.

“Good food and pastries, coffee too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

This was probably the best place for breakfast or lunch.... Good food, an interesting menu and the pastries looked out of this world. We came for a late lunch on Thursday, and were disappointed. They close at 3 on Thursday to clean the grill, and that's when we were there. So we had breakfast there the next morning, and it was very good. This seems to be a go-to place in Gualalal.

“Great for lunch or dessert!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

While staying in the Gualala area we stopped in Trinks to pick up dessert for our dinner at home. Good selection of bakery items available. We looked at the lunch menu which had nice soups and sandwiches although we never made it back to try. We did enjoy a latte with nice views of the coast!

“Better For Lunch and Breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Tried Trinks for supper after reading TripAdvisor's recommendation for Gualala, CA. The are located in a small store front in a small commercial building. They have a nice view of the ocean, but not of the beach. They were quite busy and obviously popular with local residents. The dinner menu was very limited with only three items, a chicken dish, hamburger and fries, and a veggie burger and fries. We ordered the hamburger and fries, which was quite good. The fries were excellent. For desert, we shared a blackberry-blueberry pie with whipped cream. Again it was excellent. They are said to have excellent gelato, but they had none the evening we were there. The waitress said they sold out very quickly when it was delivered. The restaurant prices were California resort prices and so the meal was not a very good deal.

Be warned that they only take cash and checks. There was a small sign at near the door below the menu which we didn't notice. So the meal depleted our cash reserve. I think we used more cash here than on our entire cross-country trip to California. They had very tempting pastries on display. I would try them sometime for lunch or breakfast. But I would try other establishments for dinner next time.
