We love this place for lunch when we are in Mendocino. Art and his wife have had this little, unpretentious lunch spot for 20 years and, in our opinion, it is a gem. If you want a delicious bowl of home-cooked soup, or a plate of pasta, or a custom made sandwich, and a good salad bar, this is the place to come. There is a selection of soups each day, and we have never had one that wasn't excellent, and we have been coming here every year for 10 years. O.K., they use paper plates and bowls, and plastic spoons and forks, but that is because the kitchen is so tiny that there isn't room for dish-washing. As an aside, the owners bring special home cooked meals to some of the shut-ins in town.Yes, we are fans of Cultured Affair!
