Let's relax and enjoy the decor of this cute place on main street, in a small town, out in the redwoods, near the river. How comfortable is that. There are booths and tables to accommodate everyone. The staff is friendly and make sure your beverages...More

Everything you want at a diner: great food made fresh and reasonably priced, cozy and nostalgic atmosphere with a fantastic staff and involved active owners-all in the unique beauty of this part of California. Could not have asked for more.

This location serves breakfast and lunch. We had the lunch, and ordered the Cobb salad. Fresh, plentiful dish. The location had a steady stream of clients. Worth it if you are in the area.

Our dinner was good but not great. I recommend you pass on the oysters. Not worth the money. The staff was very nice and attentive. Kinda expensive.

Quick breakfast of Huevos Rancheros (add avocado) with side of bacon. The HR had cannellini beans instead of black or refried, which made it lighter. Would certainly return. Waitress was friendly and efficient.
