The view of the Russian River is splendid from the outdoor seating. The atmosphere is relaxing and laid back. The food and coffee was delicious. Everything was locally grown and organic.

The place was recommended by a local. What a great place. Had fantastic home made chowder and freshly brewed coffee. The views over the Russian river were awesome. Some guy played the guitar outside. Will be a lovely memory from our California trip.

The coffee was delicious (they do pour-over so it's always fresh) but there's very little seating. There are plenty of seats outside so it's not a problem on a sunny day, but don't expect a chair if it's raining. The pastries are made in-house and the banana muffin was great. The staff was all extremely friendly and the cafe has... More

Nice hippie way to eat delicious organic sandwiches. We were here last august by the Oregon coast, sweety and peacefull location by the bay. If you don't wanna eat meat, this is the right place to do. The staff is nice and the price is ok. Welcome to Cali!

Grabbed a pour-over and scone ... Good, strong coffee and really sweet staff... On a nice day, would likely be pleasant to sit out on deck and enjoy views.

Delicious Chowder! and other soups and sandwiches. Baked goods that are special, like giant homemade cookies. Plus, real good coffee. Grab some breakfast or lunch to go before heading out in a kayak, from the River access point right beside the Cafe, (explore the Russian River, AND the Ocean).The views from the patio of this special little place are just...

If you are driving up the coast to Sea Ranch or Fort Ross, is easy to miss this Cafe. So slow down, relax and enjoy the view with a cup of coffee, bowl of soup or any of the wonderful items that are on the menu. You won't regret it.

Spent a lovely afternoon sipping deep, rich coffee by the Russian River, listening to Flamenco and the wind.

I wouldn't drive up (or down) to coast with out stopping here for coffee (at least) This place in fun and funky. The service is wonderful and the coffee is delicious. There are decks and seating all around two sides of the building with beautiful views of the Russian River where it flows into the ocean. There is even a... More
