Annette (Flowers by Annette) recommended that we try this place for a late lunch. My companion and I both decided on hot dogs. She ordered the Chicago Style Hot Dog with an Arnold Palmer, and I chose the Great Northern Cheese Dog with Iced Tea. Our server Diane and her assistant Kylie were very attentive and refilled our drinks. The... More

Small, busy café in the old part of town obviously loved by the locals, furnished with thrift store finds, but cute. We were happy fo find it on a day trip from our stay in Mendocino. Menu was long and varied. People werefriendly and our food was good

Its a great cafe on a side street in Willits. We stopped in and had a couple of hot sandwiches. Their special of the day was an Italian Sausage Sandwich and the French Dip was LOADED with meat. Pickles were crisp and garlicky the way I like them. They served the fresh brewed ice tea almost as soon as we... More

Over the years, Loose Caboose has consistently been serving delicious sandwiches, salads and soups. I love the Vegetarian Station sandwich, and the southwestern chicken salad, but everything on the menu is full of flavor and good quality ingredients. Always busy at lunchtime, so go early or later for less of a wait.

This is a small, family-owned place in a small town. It is open for lunch only. I have eaten there several times and have enjoyed both lunches. The soups are made from scratch and are amazing. The sandwiches are creative and served on very fresh, crunchy bread. The wait staff is happy and courteous. Highly recommended for lunch in Willitts.

The best place in Willits for lunch. It's a very small restaurant with lots of character. Many locals go there for lunch and whenever I have visitors I always try to take them there. They are only open for lunch.

We were just passing through on our way to Mendocino, and wanted to try something different for a lunch stop. The Loose Caboose Cafe turned out to be a great place. I had the Club Car sandwich, and it was delicious. It was perfectly balanced with fresh ingredients on a toasted roll. My wife had the Extreme Veggie sandwich, and... More

My wife and I went to the Loose Caboose based on a recommendation from our daughters family and a check on Trip Adviser. A caution is that this restaurant is Cash only. It was a quiet Friday afternoon so it didn't seem busy. We were seated and our drink order was taken quickly. My wife ordered a special spinach salad... More
