We're doing a romantic overnight inn stay in Mendocino. Unfortunately, the inn owner wants to be paid for this, so we're left with loose change to pay for meals. We're looking for places for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or cool grocers (we'll have a tiny kitchen until check-out), or anything else fun and affordable.
Also - we'll be coming up 128 from the bay area, if you know of the similar spots on the way, that would be great. My TomTom shows me the restaurants as we go - but tells me nothing about them. You chowhounds have never steered me wrong.
