The atmosphere is that of a friendly family owned restaurant. It is quite clean, sort of knotty pine-like decor, What we all ordered was excellent.

Plank Coffee offers a wide selection of organic and fair trade coffee and tea beverages. We also feature a large selection house baked pastries including gluten-free and vegan options. Our house made granola is a big hit. On weekends, try our spinach, shallot and gruyere quiche. Free wifi.
It was definitely worth stopping in Cloverdale to see the town (and its quirky artwork) and visit Plank coffee. In terms of design, it’s one of the nicest coffee shops I’ve ever come across. Great light and a good mix of seating from the large communal table to the big armchairs. I had a Guatemala Huehuetenango pour-over (you heard me!) – reasonably priced at $3.25 and very nicely roasted & brewed. They now roast their own beans, with 10 oz bags for sale at $13-14. I also had a piece of their Hungarian shortbread ($2) and having made my own at home (and thinking it was good) I can say that theirs was exceptionally good! I was shocked to hear that it’s also gluten-free – a local baker makes it using their special rice flour mix. They have a great selection of pies and pastries with several vegan and gluten-free options.
I’m wavering between 4 and 5 “green stars” for social and environmental impact, based on these reasons:
• I believe that their coffee and teas are organic.
• Having said that, I’d like to know more about their coffee – I forgot to ask and now can’t find any info online. I think that some bags are labeled as organic and some not. Not sure about trade practice. Hope to learn more!
• They stock organic almond and soy milk.
• Some vegan-friendly pastries.
• They now roast their own coffee in restored roaster and package it in compostable (I think) bags.
• I like that as an alternative to soda they sell a “Shrub of the Week”, made from local produce. Great idea!
• Their amazing décor is largely from salvaged (communal table), vintage (armchairs) or locally-sourced (their wooden wall) materials.
• Lids not compostable – anyway, bring your own mug!

We have never been disappointed here. The food is always wonderful. The service is excellent. Exceptional for the little town of Cloverdale.
We were there recently when they were packed, including the outside seating. I don't know how they managed it, but the food and service were still outstanding. I even observed them dealing with an unpleasant customer, who had been told at the outset that they would have a wait because most people had reservations and would be seated first. They got angry and made a scene when they had to wait but the owner still handled it with grace and class.
The chef/owner has come out and talked to us and created dishes specifically for us, that weren't on the menu. Really delicious food! Beautifully presented, too.
We love this place and recommend it highly.

Plane just landed in Oakland. Headed to see the Redwoods. It was lunch time & the family was getting Hangry. Too the exit and spotted this little Thai spot. Food was good. I didn't order, but questioned an orange/brown drink, it was Thai tea.
See the pics below to see my order.
Over all great place. Go there if you enjoy Thai food!!

Picks is a solid choice for great burgers and fries. Now owned by the same folks who own Healdsburger, the food has improved dramatically and is always fresh and delicioius.

Beer was tasty. My husband enjoyed the crowd favorite Cloverdale Pale Ale while I enjoyed the Pine Mountain Pale Ale with its cascade hops. While the beer was tasty and provided the "very good" rating, the food needs similar attentiveness. My husband was happy with his burger, the chicken salad I ordered while a good attempt had over cooked and dry chicken. I love a good salad with breaded chicken and while we will return, I will not order this item again and stick to the traditional beer grub.
