“First Class Sandwich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

A very popular lunch spot for very tasty sandwiches with a funky decor but it's all rather frenetic with staff shouting, an unclear payment and ordering process and a feeling you are being rushed to finish and move on. Why discontinue the chicken curry salad sandwich which was so popular just because you have a policy of refreshing the menu!

“Delicious and satisfying”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Mendocino is a great place for lunch, where you can fill up on a fresh and unique sandwich or salad. They have something for everyone, and everything I've ever tried has been amazing. I love their potato salad - and apparently it's one of their most popular items, definitely give it a try. Great atmosphere, great staff, great place.

“Great Sandwiches and Salads”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We stopped to pick up sandwiches on our way to LAX to return home. We arrived just before they were open (11am) on a Sunday morning and the queue was already about 20 people - a testament to how the quality of the food. Wonderful artisan breads and specialty salads.

“Good food, horrible atmosphere inside”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

I like the sandwiches here and they offer some nice salads. If you can find a table outside it's a view of the parking lot but at least it's outside. The inside drives me crazy as they scream the order out to the kitchen staff in such a jarring loud voice every few minutes when crowded, it becomes really unsettling and impossible to relax or chat over lunch. Not sure why they set up this system and in a space with terrible acoustics it's really unbearable. When i sit outside i enjoy my lunch, when i'm inside and they are screaming orders every few seconds, it's really really unpleasant.
