I begrudgingly give this review because I love this place and don't want it to be packed with tourist... Anyway the food is so fresh they get it from the local growers and it has a nice hippy vibe. Don't be in a hurry it's very casual and a fun place to eat. Vegi and vegan friendly. A great Eureka place to eat

You guys, this place is seriously a s***hole on the inside. We walked in and I instantly started to panic. Old yellowing posters and flyers everywhere, the tables that no matter how much you clean them they still look dirty, and a dust plant above our table. The plant literally was cloaked in an inch of dust just waiting to be swept off by the lightest breeze or swipe of a hand! All dramatics aside, I liked how little it was inside. We sat down and our waitress was so close she literally didn't even have to get up to greet us! There were a ton of vegetarian options, and it was cheap! We ended up really enjoying it and will definitely be back!

This place is small, but perfect for lunch for 2. They can do gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, and vegan. The staff is friendly, funny, and funky. AND THE FOOD IS PHENOMENAL!!! Curried eggplant enchiladas. Sweet potato and black bean enchiladas. Fresh mole. Homemade salsa from fresh, locally grown veggies. Recommended on the menu? Anything that catches your eye...it's all great!

The ambiance is an acquired taste. This is a tiny spot, hidden away down some stairs from Spring St. You have to be a contortionist to use the restroom. Just a few tables. But don't let this scare you, because the food is definitely worth it. I guess they call it Ark-Mex, it's Mexican with a hippie twist. Lots of fresh veggies and interesting combinations, and all I've tried are good. Love this place.

Small and funky. Not for the conservative diners, but more bohemian for the laid back and open minded -- especially the bathroom, which involves stepping up to the toilet in an awkward maneuver. THE BEST FRESH FOOD EVER -- We have breakfast here every time we go to Eureka and have sine 1991 -- would not miss it. Simple home cooked food with a Mexican slant --
If you can find it down a narrow stairway near the Orleans Hotel, you're in for a treat! It is fun to read all the stuff on the walls --- a real spep back to a simpler time. FUN and GREAT fresh and flavorful FOOD.
