“Typical Coffee Shop”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

If you need coffee and don't like the cheap grind at the Chevron across the street, Trink's has good coffee drinks. They also have light lunches and snacks. Quality and prices are moderate. Location is near ocean view. In good weather you can walk from there along the Gualala Bluff.

“Great sandwiches and salads!”
Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

The last time we came to Sea Ranch we discovered Trinks. It is very much a local hangout. Their sandwiches are large and delicious. The same with their salads. Coffee drinks are very good. The place gets very busy, but they keep things moving. Dining is inside or out. They also do takeout. Great food for everyone!

“Trinks for Coffee Drinks”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

My wife and I had a light lunch at Trinks.

My wife ordered a bowl of soup - sweet potato soup with almonds as a garnish - and an iced tea. I had a bowl of chili all for about $16.

The chili was tasty and included small kidney beans and meat. The serving size was adequate, but I added the provided oyster crackers to bulk it up a bit.

We arrived about noon and the restaurant was quite busy. You order and pay at the service counter and the food is brought to your table. Much of the traffic was take away. They have a large selection of house baked sweets to accompany their coffee offerings.

“Genuinely worth a visit!”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Delicious, wholesome food served promptly in a homely, village atmosphere. Whether for breakfast or brunch, it would be a pity not to stop at Trinks as you travel along the northern Californian coast.

“Breakfast gem”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Yup, everyone from town and visitors show up here for coffee, pastries, and/or full breakfast. It was mild weather and we ate outside on the sheltered and heated porch. We "discovered" this little place the day we were leaving Gualala, but we'll be back to try their not every day evening meals as well.
