This is a tiny neat breakfast/lunch place. It's worth the three block diversion from Highway 101. Good lunch choices.

Hopefully, this will reopen. Right now a great portion was destroyed by a fire. Just a rumor, but I heard the owner had no insurance to fix and rebuild. If she reopens, I will update.

Alta's suffered extensive damage when the old buildings next door burned to the ground several months ago. Vonda, the owner, intends to rebuild but it appears it will take some time.

This place is a bit unassuming inside and out but overall, she makes a decent burger and fries. It's a bit run down and small inside but, it's worth a stop and the prices are not too high.

My fishing guide brought me and my fishing buddy to this unassuming place. Pancakes covering one plate with another plate with what looks like a 1/3 lb. sausage patty was what I had. According to my guide, a good place to order ham & eggs...More

Alta had been making breakfast and lunch for local farmers and fishermen long before we showed up in the area. Portions are large, everything is fresh and Alta, herself, is a real treat. Space is limited and the place can get full pretty quickly around...More
