“Kali Loved It!”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Enjoyed our breakfast and the dog friendly atmosphere. The outdoor porch was very pleasant and our puppy, Kali, loved the special "doggie" menu. The Eggs Benedict were fine - nothing really to write home about, though. The grilled potatoes were delicious with a slight citrusy flavor and the coffee was yummy. Wait staff was extremely friendly, efficient and gave special attention to the doggies enjoying breakfast with their humans. They are only open for breakfast and lunch, and, if weather permits, sit outside (they have heaters) since the indoor seating was packed and incredibly NOISY! Occidental is a cute little town and a short drive to Bodega Bay - a nice day trip from the Bay Area.

“What can I say just pass on by!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Food is bland and they charge you for things like salsa for fish tacos! Stopped for lunch and they ran me off the porch before I was even done, said I could sit at a picnic table across the parking lot!

“Yummy Lunches”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

We enjoyed a late lunch and chose from a large menu. The salad and zucchini soup were excellent as was the BLT. Good service and yummy food in a relaxed atmosphere. Remember to bring cash--no credit cards.

“everything from soup to nuts”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

Breakfast all day...until 2:30 when they close - opens at 7. It is healthy and darn good. I had the steel cut oatmeal, turkey sausage and a fresh juice (carrot, beet and celery). It was delicious so I went back for lunch and had the white bean with kale soup w/ black olives, pesto and celery and the home cut fries. This place is freaky good....healthy...great prices - how can you go wrong?

“great place, good food, a little bit $”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

Service was excellent, food was good with good sized portions. Prices are a bit high, but in general Occidental is becoming a pricey tourist town.
