Sea Pal Cove - Total dive in Fort Bragg with some of the best fish and chips and fried shrimp I've ever had. Delicious local beer on tap and an enormous condiment bar so you can help yourself to as much tartar sauce as you want.
Olallieberry Jam from Mendocino Jams & Preserves - Have you ever heard of olallieberry? It's a cross between a blackberry, loganberry and youngberry. You'll find it mostly along the California coast and I love 'em because they're tangy and not overly sweet. Mendocino Jams & Preserves is the cutest little shop in downtown Mendocino and definitely worth a stop.
Mendo Burger - Awesome burgers and fantastic, thick-cut fries. We were lucky enough to hit them up when they had crabcake burgers on special and they were ridiculous. I'm partial to this place because we loved the owners. Sweetest couple from New York and when they heard our dog is named Franklin's Tower, they started blasting some Dead tunes for us. Thanks guys!
Need a place to stay? We LOVED the house we rented from Mendocino Preferred. Would highly recommend. http://www.mendocinopreferred.com/
