Very friendly service and excellent food. The best we have had since coming to America. We've only been here 6 days admittedly but it was so refreshing not to have chips with everything. Not the cheapest but worth every dollar.

After a couple of hours in Armstrong Woods, we went on out to Duncans Mills for a late lunch. It's a quaint site, with inside and outdoor seating. The menu choices were varied and interesting. Service was good, and the server pleasant.

They have several versions of eggs benedict. Best eggs Benedict ever. Cozy environment inside or out on the patio. Good service.

Duncan's Mills is a teensy coastal town of 175 people near Bodega Bay, CA. Made up of a handful of storefronts, you would not expect high flying professional food in what looks like a throwback tourist stopoff. This is 100% worth your time. Last year,...More
