We walked up and down the streets of Alturas, and, baby there isn't much good eatin' in Alturas. This is an independently-owned coffee shop and it serves pretty good food. The ambiance is not super as it is pretty spartan. The main problem was the service. We waited over a half an hour for our food and it came in spurts and dribbles....The owner apologized but we thought he should have cut short all his chatting with the customers in order to get the food out on time.
