Restaurant details
Reviewed October 23, 2013

My husband and I took many trips this past summer throughout Northern California on our Triumph Tiger motorcycle. I am a plant-based eater, so I often have to search ahead of time for restaurants that will serve more than just a green salad. This is a store-front restaurant located on a busy street heading into main Oakhurst. They close at 6:00 p.m., so get there for a late lunch or early dinner. We arrived at 5:30 p.m, but we were given plenty of time and did not feel rushed. My first impression was positive; a friendly greeting from the chef/owner as she is busy putting out hot pots of soup and chili, her daughters doing homework on a back table, along with their dad reading the newspaper. It is a large space with many mis-matched dining room tables and chairs; most of the tables seat six people. The food is simple: sandwiches, soups, and salad. The best deal is the all-you-can eat salad bar and soup for under $10. My choice was the ribboleta soup (vegan Italian vegetable) and two trips to the fully-loaded salad bar. My husband had two bowls of chili and a plate of prepared salads such as potato, coleslaw and macaroni. We were very satisfied and full when we finished. So much so, that we chose to come back a second night instead of visiting the nearby casino buffet!

The owners are wonderful and do a great job. The eating area is large and they can accommodate lots of people during lunch. Great job Kandi. Free WiFi too.

I love the salad, soup and potato bar at Produce Place. The soups are always fresh and made that day, and each time I have been there at least one vegetarian option is offered. The potato bar is such a nice addition to a salad bar! The potatoes are baked in foil wrappers with onions, delish. The salad bar has a really nice selection of greens, veggies and extras like trail mix, nuts and fruit to make a really super salad. I have never been disappointed here. My other half likes the sandwiches which are huge and piled with meat and cheese.

We stopped here on our way to Yosemite for lunch. It's a casual restaurant that has a huge salad bar, potato bar, soup bar, and sandwiches. Prices were low, service was friendly and we were so excited to find such a yummy place. It's off of the main road but worth looking for on your way to and from Yosemite.
