Located in the heart of Mendocino, Trillium Café offers ocean views and inspired California cuisine in a cozy, relaxed environment. Long-time visitors to Mendocino will recognize this as the location of the Moose Café, and Trillium continues in its proud Mendocino tradition, while offering an updated feel and menu.
Trillium offers both lunch and dinner services, with lunch entrées ranging in price from $9 to $20, and dinner selections from $20 to $28. Although not the cheapest option in Mendocino, it is far from the most pricy, and offers a wonderful value for quality of ingredients and dishes. The setting is excellent as well, and you can sit either inside in a cozy farmhouse-style setting, or on their beautiful deck overlooking their gardens with a view of Mendocino Bay and the Pacific Ocean.
The menu here is relatively contemporary for Mendocino, with a nod towards classic California farmhouse cuisine. Favorites include the glazed game hen with sweet potato gratin, the miso-ginger grilled prawns, and the local Dungeness crab strudel.
