This is an interesting place and a good place for lunch. Sandwiches are good and bigger than average. We had Roast beef and Turkey sandwiches - both excellent. We knew this was a good place to eat when it was clear that local people ate...More

Very small café, but what they serve is the best. Especially the soups, which are homemade daily, with a different soup every day. Don't miss this place for lunch in Mendocino

I had kept hearing about A Cultured Affair while I was visiting Mendocino for three days and was told repeatedly by locals that this place makes sandwiches to order. I'm vegan and found this to be a most welcome invitation and exciting reason to go...More

Very nice place for a mid day meal. Mom-Pop shop, friendly and welcoming. Big sandwich for the money. Nothing fancy, but very tasty. We had it "to go" so we could go to Headlands State Park and picnic while searching for whales.
