Have eaten here a couple of times, plenty of selections for vegetarians including mock meat. Good food, great family-run business type service. The type that will remember your name. Right on the 101 in The LumberYard . convenient access to the beach.

They have great lunch specials--$8.95 for soup and entree. Huge selection. The coconut soup was delicious, as was the chicken, cabbage salad and rice. Service was efficient and friendly.
