I suppose this review might be considered as "damning with faint praise." My family has eaten here probably half a dozen times, and will probably eat here again. It's conveniently located to the motel we usually stay at, and it has organic and gluten-free options, so all that is good (my son is on a restricted diet). The food, unfortunately,... More

Cafe One is the only place we go to in Fort Bragg for breakfast. We look forward to it when we visit. While I can eat gluten I always order their gluten free pancakes when they have them, they are awesome. They have a large selection for breakfast and lunch. When my wife was having a hard time deciding on... More

Driving the coast highway, this was the first restaurant we spotted while passing through Fort Bragg. Located right on the main highway, with free on street parking available. The menu is completely organic, but is fairly extensive. Meals were well cooked and served hot.

I've eaten lunch here a few times and it's always hard to pick! You can have breakfast until 2.30pm; there are soups, salads, wraps and main dishes. There are organic options, vegan and vegetarian options and everything I've had was delicious.

My husband and I stopped in on our way out of town. We both had delicious breakfasts made with fresh, organic ingredients. I had a Sunday Omelette (turkey sausage, avocado, spinach, mushrooms and I chose goat cheese) and he had an eggs benedict and they made the hollandaise sauce for his order. We even left with several bottles of organic... More

We had the Sunday Brunch omelette, Aloha waffle and extra bacons, really well prepared and very tasty waffle. Coffee also was very smooth and... More

Awesome! Bad stuff first: The atmosphere is kind of a basic diner. Initially the service was slow but once we got the waiter’s attention he was very nice and after our meal, when I asked about a product they used in my meal, he and another woman worked very hard to find out the ingredient and brand information I asked...

While traveling from SF up to the Redwood National Park, we found this place. It was after the lunch crowd had left, not long before they were going to close for the day. We were lucky to have arrived in time. Great options for Vegan diets as well as any other food choice. Dished were made fresh. One of the... More

I have eaten here many times and always have had a great experience. My Fav is the Huevos Ranchero. The servers are always friendly and the food comes really fast. I might add its hot when it gets to the table which beats cold anyday!
