Insanely Expensive - Good Quality - Bitter Service Staff - Edit

This place has fairly good quality as far as the town is concerned - but some of the prices are nearly impossible to believe. For Instance - I just spent $21.50 for a bowl of soup and a large orange juice!! It was tasty and filling - but Whoa. Also - don't come here if you are expecting smiling and friendly faces greeting you and welcoming you to the coast - the register staff is always surly, bitter and basically unhappy with what they are doing. Also - you'll often have to ask to have your table cleaned.
Unfortunately - this is one of the only go to places in town to get some quick and fairly good quality vegan items. That being said - 90% of the menu is not Vegan - and probably 50% is veg.
Kind of one of the only games in town - fills the stpmach but feels a little bad afterwards.

Pros: A Few Vegan options, Fairly Good Quality

Cons: Expensive - Expensive - Expensive, Surly Bitter Staff, Very few Vegan options.

Ate there 2 days in a row on our Mendocino visit...awesome! - Edit

Fresh produce, fresh made...you can feel the love. Service is very efficient- you can tell they have their act together. They have simple vegan friendly options including soups, sandwiches, and salads or you can design your own. I had a BLT vegan style on buckwheat bread with avocado in place of the bacon. Piled so high, I could barely get my mouth around the sandwich. My husband had the BLT (with bacon) and loved it. Bread is thick. Also had the Asian coleslaw as a side that was excellent and the Asian noodle salad another day. Both made with a bit of tahini and ginger. Clean surroundings, with outside dining. This was a pleasant surprise.

Pros: Variety for vegan options, Easy service, not daunted by changes, Clean

Cons: Can't think of any...

Be careful!! - Edit

I had a wonderful pumpkin curry with chickpeas, added tofu and brown rice. It totally hit the spot. I also had a scone made out of Almond meal. Really wonderful.

I just ate there again and had a very unfortunate experience. I ordered the vegan lentil and veggie soup and when I got towards the bottom of the bowl I found some small pieces of chicken—very uncool. I bought the bowl to the counter and asked if it was supposed to be vegan and they said yes, then I asked why I had found chicken and pointed to it on the plate and they said a mistake had been made and that they were sorry. Decide for yourself.
