We rolled into Mendocino fairly late in the afternoon and wanted a simple lunch. Most eating places in Mendocino are either quite upscale (a' la' Cafe Beaujolais) or of the ice cream and cookies variety. We wanted a sandwich and maybe a bowl of soup. A Cultured Affair, which is a funny name for such a simple place, was just the ticket. We shared a roast beef sandwich which was made from nice fresh ingredients and a bowl of pumpkin bisque soup which was wonderful. The soup may vary from day to day. The place is small and out of the way but worth looking for. Enter off Main St and walk up a path and over some stairs around another building and you'll find it. It's not long on atmosphere. You'll find simple seating and a few locals enjoying the place as well. We did not find the service particularly slow but then again we weren't in any hurry. Maybe a tiny bit pricey but well worth it.
