We had breakfast in the cafe one morning. Also had salad and wrap for dinner late afternoon. Everything was freshly made, wholesome and delicious.

Outstanding location looking over the river. You can eat outside for breakfast. Mostly good bagels and coffee in the a.m. Scones as well, oatmeal.

Best place around and the setting couldn't be beat - a patio overlooking the Trinity River. Nothing better. On week-ends they have home made wood fired pizza which was wonderful. They also grill their tri-tip which they use in different ways. The nicest staff!!!

We stopped at the Strawhouse Cafe on the way to Oregon -- what a find! I had quiche with fruit and my husband had a steaming bowl of steel-cut oatmeal with nuts and raisens. We ate outside, of course, once we got a look at...More

We left Willow Creek, CA without having coffee, assuming we'd find a coffee shop soon enough. After having my plebeian tastes over-ridden by my Mother, she spotted this cafe by the highway. Always defer to my Mother on these matters. The coffee was excellent. The...More
