Café
“Large selection of craft beers on a rotating tap with emphasis on the top North Coast breweries. Good salad bar with lots of organic ingredients. Superb custom sandwiches made with a Food Truckesque flair. Nice selection of other food specials and appetizer type foods. Live music on weekends and open mike on occasion during the week. Unpretentious, comfortable with a little North Coast grit... In a good way.”
