I love this place, and the owner Kate is really a cool woman. Grows the produce herself, organic and local. She has hopes of moving into the larger building in the front, but for now she is in a little kiosk in a garden.
Food is delicious, and she absolutely grows the sweetest tomatoes you will ever taste (unless you grow your own). The wraps are great, and big. She has her own homemade Vegan spicy pesto (or extra spicy), and I am also very partial to the Golden Tofu.
Hours are a bit unpredictable, but she is usually open Tuesday thru Sunday 10ish to 4ish, but she usually doesn't open at all from November thru March.
One of my favorite places, truly locally and independently owned, great food, great prices. A real down home experience, like the whole town of Mendocino. This is the only restaurant in town where you can get full on Vegan food for under 10 dollars.

Pros: Great Prices, Great Food, Real Independent
Cons: Hours

This place was very cute and I was happy that it was 100% vegetarian with vegan options. There is outdoor seating surrounded by lots of plants and flowers. The quesadilla was decent - but the side of brown rice and beans was dull in flavor. The vegetarian sausage was a little disappointing as well.

Pros: 100% vegetarian
Cons: Expensive for what you get

nice surprise

i was skeptical at first (it's just a little hut with outdoor seating) but the food here was fresh and delicious, and the service was sweet and friendly.

Pros: great food, nice people, outdoor seating
Cons: short hours, no indoor seating
