This is a very small bistro type of restaurant that offers a lot of different selections. The New England clam chowder was outstanding, as were the local rock cod fish tacos, Shrimp Ceviche Tostadas, Shrimp and chips combo and the avocado with tuna salad.

I checked out some places before we headed out and really liked what I read about this place. We ended up eating here twice on out short weekend stay. The first time we went for lunch and got their fish tacos and shared a cup of clam chowder, both were seriously amazing and I talked about them the rest of the night! The clam chowder was the best I have had so far, thick and hearty and it had bacon...SOLD!

We just headed back over there for breakfast and I got the Mondo breakdast burrito and it did not disappoint. The thing was seriously stuffed with eggs, black beans, rise, cheese, pepperoncinis and so much more...and I am still snacking on it as I couldn't even eat half! Such a little place but completely with it, both with the food and the owners!

This small storefront with a sign that says "Take out Food" gave us pause. We almost did not stop. And, they were not even mentioned by the visitor's center when we asked for a light lunch. They tried to steer us to some of the more expensive, sit down restaurants in town.

What a surprise! The fish tacos were absolutely fabulous. You get 2 fish tacos (we got grilled), a beautiful fresh crisp side salad, and homemade pico de gallo. Everything was wonderful.

Do NOT miss this place.

Who wants to be eating indoors when you picturesque Mendocino is your back ground? Mendocino county pays attention to its food so rarely we have been out of luck when traveling to this place but I give Tote Fete a 5 star because:

- The first quality take out food that we ran into in the area.
- They have a colorful menu (they recently expanded it) that appeals to all taste, vegetarian, seafood, Mexican, nice salads and home made CHIPS!)
- The price is very reasonable for the quality that you get compare to $$$ places in the area. For their Taco Fish- 2 big tacos- we paid 14 bucks. For a picnic for 2 we got 2 of their smallest container for salads, half portion of their house made chips for less than 13 bucks. we got great baguette from the Farmer's market right across the shop. Made a great lunch.
- The owner bought the business in January 2016, returned back to town recently and used to go to high school here.
