Mendocino eat and drink

Arriving late into Mendocino meant we were hungry and ready for recommendations, are landlady at the bnb for the night recommended next door for reasonably priced, well prepped fare, who were we to argue?  Off we ventured, initial signs were good, busy, and some locals in there too.  Reasonable choice of beer allowed us to continue our tasting of pnw  brewing, enjoying racer 5 and peeko (I think).  We ordered our food from a tasty selection of relatively healthy food, as you may expect in mendo I guess.  The Thai style burrito was tasty, as was the noodle soup and the nachos, all in all what we needed after the drive down.  On to the Irish bar for a few night caps, well this surprised me, there I was expecting the usual monstrosity of a place but was actually welcomed by a charming little boozer with yet more good beer on tap and bottle.  The Rasputin imperial stout was very good, although almost too much by the pint.

Confusion arose the next day when we visited two bakeries in town to be met with responses they had no bread, not that they had sold out,just they didn't have any, bizarre!  So we took ourselves up to the store and purchased supplies for the days travel through Anderson Valley to Sonoma.
