nice little cafe we stop at for a quick bit for breakfast. The building was little old place place of about 24 -30 seat capacity. It was a little run down but bad. It's an organic place which we didn't know till we were already seated. We enjoyed a simple raisin bread french toast. They good nothing to get to exited over. The syrup was outstanding, it seemed natural maple with molasse. It was very good. coffee was off it seemed burned. Staff was ok friendly enough. It was just ok experience. It was a little expensive for what we got. We don't care much for organic restaurants. This place did nothing to change my mind. There are many other places in town much better.

Vegan food available for me. Fun food like Mickey Mouse pancakes and root beer floats for the kids. Very friendly staff. Food was yummy. Prices weren't bad. Strongly recommend.

This cafe was recommended to us at one of the stores in town, and we are very glad we asked as we probably wouldn't have found it otherwise as it's just on the edge of the main drag. It is an organic cafe which was a welcome surprise when we arrived and in our 8 day stay in the US it was probably the nicest meal we ate! There were delicious fresh baked scones and lots of fresh fruit and veg. Everything was tasty without being too sweet or too fatty and it was just a very pleasant experience - highly recommended and if we are ever back in California we'll try to get back to Cafe 1!

We always stop here once or twice on our trips to the area, and have done so for years. The quality and service are always perfect, the menu selections for this casual diner style restaurant are extensive. Fresh, well created dishes. Very friendly staff and customers.

I'm a Fort Bragg local and this is one of my favorite places to eat in town. Cafe 1 has the number one most important fact, when going to a restaurant, FRESH FOOD. They actually cook the food and prepare it fresh, unlike a lot of other restaurants. I don't see or hear them ever using a microwave! I can't say this much for restaurants now days. Not to mention Cafe 1 is clean and the staff is always friendly. I have never been disappointed and I'm at this place on a weekly basis. Some of my favorites are Chicken Curry Sandwitch, Black Bean Omelette, Salmon Sandwitch, Vegetarian Chilli Bowl, Hippie Scramble, Windowpane Breakfast. I could go on but I can't remember all the names at the moment. I have never gotten a salad that was inedible. All my salads have been fresh, large and full of flavors. Side salads consist of lush leafy green lettuce, sunflower seeds, radish and tomatoe slices and sprouts. The best part of the side salads are the pickled onions that they put on the top of every salad. It give a perfect combonation of sweetness with their creamy blue cheese salad dressing. I always order my dressings on the side and I love this blue cheese dressing. It is filled with chuncks of creamy blue cheese. It really make a nice combonation of flavors for just a side salad that comes with your main lunch time meal. Another added favorite is the breakfast jams. Yum! They make a mean chai with a nice frothy top and a sprinkle of nutmeg. I can't say anything bad about Cafe 1. They know what they are doing and feed our community well. Thank You everyone at Cafe 1. You make me and so many people I know, happy!
