Lauren's is a pleasant country restaurant with a diverse menu that stresses local products. In fact, on a table in the back, there were some tomatoes and other vegetables for sale The dishes are well-prepared and nicely presented. The wait staff are friendly and competent. There is a nice selection of draft beers and a good selection of wines, featuring... More

The minute you enter the place, you know it is a favourite of local people, and for good reasons! The food is fantastic. Nothing fancy but everything is prepared with fresh local products and you can see it, smell it, taste it. I had the summer pasta dish. The little cherry tomatoes were delicious and the basil flavour was out... More

We decided to have lunch here on our way home from Mendocino. Jessica was the only server despite there being a lot of diners. The vegetables were very fresh. I really liked the Grilled Avocado, Tomato and Fontina sandwich. My friend had a salad and bowl of Tomato Basil soup. For dessert, we shared a delicious peach, blackberry cobbler with... More

Good service but a bit slow. Food was great. Corn Cake appetizer was so good we could have eaten more. Steak salad was large and the veggies were fresh. Homemade cobbler was for dessert and came with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Lauren's looks the slightest bit "western" from the outside. It seems unintentional. On my first drive by it didn't have that farm-to-table cafe look about it. Fortunately, I did a quick check of reviews, and made a u-turn back there. The food is real and honest, made with good ingredients and not much fanfare. If you want precious, composed dishes...

With it's ever-changing menu highlighting seasonal and locally grown foods Lauren's is a restaurant that can appeal to almost anybody. You can make a meal from the delicious assortment of appetizers or simply go for pizza and salad or perhaps a larger-than-life hamburger accompanied by her famous fries. The large salad adorned with copious amounts of very fresh salad vegetables... More

We stumbled upon this gem on our way back from kayaking on the ocean. We were tired and starving, and we didn't look closely at the sign. Though we arrived just after they closed down lunch service, they fed us anyway. The food was incredible. All vegetables were fresh from local growers, which made a huge difference in flavor. It...

Ate dinner here and lunch the next day. Met the extremely humble Lauren as she was talking to locals and quietly bussing tables. The food was very high quality and sometimes inventive. The service was great. The artwork is creative and reasonably priced. They offer paper and crayons to kids (and adults) to draw, and then the collect them to... More

This is a great restaurant. Family friendly with fun local art on the walls. The food is always consistently good. Good food, good service. Make sure you try the french fries, you can't go wrong.
