If you like atmosphere thus restaurant is like in a tree house bi love the decor and the swiss family robinson feel. Food is organic and natural. Sandwiches, salads and root-beer. They are only open 24/5 so don't go after sunset on friday... Re opens on Monday.

Décor is outstanding. Service is polite but slow. Love the menu. Easy parking near small theaters. Open 24 hours Monday thru Friday. Weekends are strange hours. Check before you go on weekends. One day per week they have a farmers market and wonderful bread sale. Great homemade bread can be bought at the restaurant at any time.

Hard to describe the ambiance of this little charming cafe. With ties to their organic farm in the area, menu includes lovely salads, soups, chili, fresh deli sandwiches. Open 24 hours except for their weekly religious day closed (check the website to be sure). Teas, coffees, smoothies, fresh bread and things to purchase. Feels like you are in a treehouse!

All the locals know it's there- a charming, quirky, hand built throwback to the hippie days of California. waitstaff genuinely wants to please. all homemade breads are delicious and for sale in the restaurant. the vegan chocolate chip cookie is a favorite and at $1 can easily be shared by two. prices are reasonable- our family of 5 has eaten a hearty meal for under $60.
put the address in your GPS as it is off the beaten track. park on the street there and take a 15 minute stroll over to the Krikorian movie theatres literally on the other side of the Sprinter tracks.

I was in town for a conference and my yellow car club fellows invited me out for lunch at the Yellow Deli. The line was long but it was very much worth it. We all were wearing yellow and the staff just got a kick out of it. The food is fresh from their farm and absolutely delicious! We ordered smoothies, teas (mate'), reuben, yogurt parfait (must have!), breakfast lambwich, cranberry cashew salad, and carrot cake - ALL SCRUMP-DELI-ICIOUS!!! And the history of the place is enthralling. Make sure to take some time to walk around and see the whole place (especially since they build it all themselves). They are open 24 hours from Noon on Sunday to 3pm on Friday. Go check out their website at yellowdeli.com.
