“Good old-fashioned coffee shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

For a time-travel experience, eat at Jensen's. The food is exceptional (they even have a Monte Cristo sandwich), the Sr. dinner includes dessert, the menu is 50s classic. Real ice cream milkshakes! The wait staff are friendly. Each table is made from a different type of California hardwood and each are labeled so you know if it is Manzanita or California Nutmeg or whatever. The kids will love the trains running around near the ceilings. We eat here every time we are in Ukiah!

“Good choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is a long standing truck stop and local meeting place. Lots of parking with easy access off hwy 101. Food is always good and the biscuits/gravy is superb. One of our favorites and where my wife and I first met in 1965. The table tops are made from different woods from throughout the world and are in excellent condition. Friendly and fast service.

“Comfort food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

The staff was kind, the cuisine is American comfort food with easy prices. Can't go wrong. I love the breakfasts there, and it's a family environment! Plus it's easy to get to from right off the freeway.
