Just so you know right outside the restaurant door is where the homeless shelter feeds the homeless people for lunch so there are a lot of sketchy characters walking around.

I went into café Nooner for breakfast. Its an easy-going place with a laid-back atmosphere. Pricing is inexpensive with large quantities of very tasty food. Employees are very friendly and outgoing and the place is very clean. It is a place where most local prople congregate to chat for coffee.

Had a lamb flatbread wrap - the lamb was awesome. My husband had a ya ya salad that he raved about - best salad he's had in a long time, he said. Service was swift and good

Visiting our Eureka office each month, Nooners has become the default place for lunch. Whilst the 'DDD' sandwich is my go to, the specials are always good worth a look as the chef has plenty of great flavour combinations.

We were antiquing in the area and ran across this place. People were streaming in/out and we can understand now that we've eaten there. Lots of selection including local seafood. definitely a place to return to!

A shopkeeper recommended this little place and we were glad she did. Hidden location but it was jammed when we stopped by for lunch. No wonder--the food was excellent!

We had two shop owners recommend this place for lunch and noted that Guy Fieri did a segment here on his show so I figured this place would be great. I can't understand what all the hype is. I had the clam chowder which was too thick and heavy and a salad which the waitress raved about how great it... More
