Needed a quick bite after the Winchester Mystery House Tour. Reviews said this place was solid. After seeing its location, I had my doubts. Although the free parking in the lot right across the way was welcome (it was pouring rain).

The quality of the food was exceptional! Tuna melt, steak sammie and soup were delicious and full o' flavor! Even the ice tea was remarkable. I'd highly recommend MF for a nosh.

The restaurant is at the end of the Santana Row strip. It offers indoor and outdoor seating. The decor is cute and feels very clean.

I tried the Cobb Salad. It was plentiful and the ingredients were very fresh. The dressing and flavors were balanced and delicious.

It was surprisingly enjoyed and very reasonably priced. Recommended!!

I guess this is "the" place to go for a healthy lunch after hiking through the wonderful Winchester House. Found several interesting items on the menu but decided on the Pork Belly Banh Mi sandwich, a very tasty and satisfying choice. My sidekick Cookielee enjoyed her Club Sandwich as well. The restaurant had a cool, clean ambience and committed staff. Highly recommended.

Conveniently located near the corner of Olsen Dr. and Santana Row, Mendocino Farms offers free range poultry to plant based proteins and farm fresh veggies.
The service at the Santana Row location is very good.
This visit we tried the Vegan Banh Mi sandwich and the “Not So Fried” Mary’s Chicken with the Vegan Potato Salad. Both sandwiches had excellent taste... we would recommend both of these items. The potato salad is also excellent...

We stopped here for lunch after doing the Winchester House tour. As a family, we love salads that are actually something other than just lettuce, tomato and ranch dressing, and this is one of the few places we found on our trip that actually offered that. Three of us took advantage of that and had the avocado and quinoa superfood salads, while my son had the chimichurri sandwich. The serving sizes were very generous, and the salads were excellent. Overall, we were very pleased with our choices, and would certainly come back here again.
