By our second night in Mendocino, my husband and I wanted something more down-home than the more fancy and relatively expensive dinner options. We sought this place out, it is downtown but a little off the main drag. Mostly pizza, ice cream and salads/soups/sandwiches, but a very good selection and it looked like a family-run place which is a plus... More

I'm a little late in my review, so I apologize. We came during October of 2014 from PA and at the last minute, our oldest daughter (7yrs at the time) joined us for the trip. So of course, we were looking for a place that a kid would like to eat at as well, right in Mendocino. That is when... More

The food here is average - we had a pizza and the bean soup which were acceptable but the atmosphere and the patio seating when the weather is good is fine.

Nice cow licks ice cream served here. Good range of flavours and the staff are very nice and the vibe is very cool. Lots of young families come here. We did not eat but went here twice and each time a lot of people were and they seemed to be enjoying their pizzas which looked ok to me.

We looked at the pizzas and how long it would take and opted for ice cream instead. That pretty much sums it up. They are open later so it helps in this small town.

Stopped by Frankie's for an ice cream after dinner. Sampled the Ginger ice cream, but settled on the coconut :)

We really struggled to find casual dining in Mendocino in the evenings. The Pub doesn't allow under 21's and we weren't in the mood for formal dining. Frankie's pizzas were good, the staff were amazing, the atmosphere was friendly and upbeat and they served great beer.

Excellent ice cream. Helpful staff. And they have a "mini" scoop size option so you won't ruin your diet unless you want to.
