They have a pretty big menu of various sandwiches and salads and coffees, etc. They had some indoor and outdoor seating, but most people were there for to-go orders (like us). The staff was friendly and made the food quite quickly. The BLT was big...with nice turkey and bacon and big pile of thick french fries. The ham and cheese on sourdough was simple and tasty and the potato salad on the side was a large helping of creamy, chunky salad!More

Having driven up the coast and walked around Mendocino, which seemed smaller than when we were last there 10 years ago, we drove up to Fort Bragg, before heading inland and back to Ukiah. We stopped at the Skunk Train depot, but it only runs...a couple of days a week and not a Friday. Just beside it was the Mall with Laurel's which was serving coffee and pastries, alongside salads and bigger main courses. Quick and efficient, the coffee was strong and the cherry and white chocolate muffins we had would have fed 2; but we had one each. Not the cheapest, but preferred to the coffee chain further south on Route 1.More

Stopped in here for a sandwich to go, as we were headed to Pacific Star Winery. My wife and I shared it and it was plenty. Interesting little diner, tucked in on a side street (Laurel) in Fort Bragg. Desserts looked outrageous, but we resisted....Worth visiting.More

Good menu for breakfast and lunch, and both food and service were excellent. Not pretentious, but great place for a casual meal.

They had good parking since it is right by the Skunk Train. We ordered take out although they have a large seating area. We were looking for a place with fresh sandwiches and Laurel's were very good. We each had 1/2 sandwich and soup combo...and they were delicious. We ate our lunch a short walk away in a little park area by the museum. Very peaceful and relaxing. Very glad to find this place!More

This little hidden gem saved us a 40+ minute wait from an 'un-named' breakfast place that had a line out the door on a Friday morning. This is a unique spot that is more 'cafe' than Deli...with many locals knowing the food is good, reasonable,...and without lines/waits. I was lucky to find it as I 'shopped' the downtown area! I had a simple breakfast that was under $9; it arrived hot, tasty and was satisfying. The owner is a die-hard Dodgers fan (he is from L.A.)...and so is this reviewer/writer! There are unique train antiques jammed into the space, as well as Dodgers/Giants memorabilia to view (not for sale). A quiet little place away from a general tourist population. It isn't signed very well and is hidden off the main drag in a historic building.More

Lunch here with friends. Pretty nice selection of salads and burgers. Good food, good service, and the atmosphere is conducive to conversation.

The highlight of this restaurant is the engine "Daisy" on permanent display inside. You can sit at a table right next to her. We had coffee and fried mozzarella sticks while we waited for our Skunk Train ride across the street. There are many little...shops inside the same open building. It is a fun place to wander through.More

They did a nice job of takeout for us to take on a picnic. Food was good, but not wow. We had a berry pie and the filling was excellent.
