Big fresh salads, good hearty sandwiches and extensive wine by the glass list keeps us coming back. The owners Ed and Kelly are always there and the staff are all helpful and friendly. Atleast 10 whites and 10 red wines are available at any time. A lot of world wines as well as California wines are available. Ed knows his... More

This cafe was recommended by a local and very happy with this choice. First, there was a more parking in the back of the building and this cafe has plenty of seating. The atmosphere was sweet and quaint with a bit of a flair. The lunch menu isn't extensive, but I found many options I wanted to try. We finally... More

As a vegetarian I particularly recommend the beet Reuben sandwich. The salads are excellent as well. The dining room has a warm, up-to-date ambiance, where you can have a good conversation over lunch without fighting noise from other tables, even when the restaurant is quite full.

High noise level, food not exciting, prices a little high. Yet this is a popular spot so apparently my view is not shared by others.

The restaurant is small and kind of arty. You order at a counter and they bring the food to the table. I had a sandwich which was okay, but nothing great. Some interesting and inventive items on the menu, though. And the bakery items looked good. Nice coffee and dessert option. I would try this place for lunch if you... More

Low-key dining for lunch or dinner, good variety on the menu, good value for the money. For lunch, the sandwiches are always good, and they have a varied selection of wines. Dinner always has something interesting and local favorites.

My wife and I were looking for a place to have dinner before a Slaid Cleaves concert in Felton, and decided to try out a recommended Scotts Valley restaurant, Mint. We proceeded to have one of the best dining experiences I've ever had in Scotts Valley, with tasty food, good beer on tap, and attentive service, all in a casual... More
