“Unexpected healthy food stop in Ukiah”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Off the beaten track for travelers on their way to or from camping, this small restaurant. in a converted house offers counter service, but the pleasant wait staff brought dishes to the table. The menu was full of great choices; my daughter thought her pastrami sandwich was the best she had ever had. Other entries at our table included an organic mixed green salad with pears and walnuts, another salad with apples and pecans, and a Cobb sandwich ( different, but delicious). The kitchen failed to put the bacon on the Cobb sandwich, but brought it out after my grandson had taken a few bites. He never missed it and the rest of us got to sample the yummy stuff. My husband had the soup of the day, which he thought was outstanding--cream of mushroom, with more mushrooms than the farmers' market.

There was pleasant tree-covered seating outside on the street. We will return on our way home.

“Food still good, service abominable”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

This restaurant was recently sold and I think they are heading for trouble. The menu remains the same and the food is excellent. We went for lunch with another couple and each couple ordered separately and we received two order numbers. After half an hour none of us had any food. One of us went in and finally one couple got their food. Still no food for the second couple. Once again we queried and were told our order had been lost. So we re-ordered. A new server (owner?) came out and asked us to again repeat our order. When we finally got our sandwiches, the ordered tuna salad morphed into chicken (or turkey?) with cranberry. To her benefit, the owner did give my husband a free half tuna salad after we complained.

The people at the table behind us also had a lengthy wait and considered leaving.

I sincerely hope this was a one-off experience as the food and setting are great, and this is a nice addition to the casual dining scene in Ukiah.

Sunny Restaurant. Very Cute. Clean. Good Food That Is Healthy. Love The Soups And Cookies. I Do Miss Having Ranch Dressing Available. Their Homemade Is Healthier I Am Sure.

“Lunch away from the mainstream”
Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

I cannot dispel the positive affirmations that have been given in the reviews before mine. The food is good and wholesome. The proprietors are friendly and informed. The setting is pleasant, being away from the mainstream of other restaurants in Ukiah. This is truly a diamond in the rough, and the food stands on the merits of its ingredients alone. The soups are excellent. I applaud the co- owners and think it is laudable that they stay open only a certain number of hours a day.
