Yreka, Siskiyou County suggestions?

rln Apr 14, 2008 05:06 PM

I will be in Yreka for 2 days next week for work.

Any suggestions for dinner and good espresso stops or bakeries are very appreciated! My colleagues and I are open to exploring.

I've been to Casa Ramos which may be dinner one night. I remember seeing a cute pizza place but can't remember the name.
Thanks for any input!

    I'll be in Dunsmuir and I am going to Senthong's..someone suggested Railroad Park, a few miles from Dunsmuir. I don't know of anything in Yreka.

      There is an old soda fountain/lunch counter near the bookstore downtown. Food looks pretty nostalgic, but worth a look. Yreka is pretty small--you'll see everything in a few minutes.

      Please let us know if you find anything.

        I'm not sure if it's open for dinner, but over the summer I had lunch at a place called Nature's Kitchen. Everything was super fresh and billed as organic. They baked their own bread and had a small assortment of baked items for sale too. I had a curried carrot soup with salad and bread and my colleague had some sort of huge sandwich made on the beautiful bread. We each got cookies for the road and they were very tasty. It was nice. Here are the coordinates. It's attached to a holistic store filled with vitamins, herbal remadies, and lots of new agey decorative items.

        Nature's Kitchen
        412 S. Main St., Yreka CA 96097
        Health Food Restaurant. Organic Bakery.

          Nature's Kitchen must be closed for dinner b/c we drove by a couple times and it was always closed. In fact, even in the morning it looked closed!

          So here's what we tried.

          Puerto Vallarta's at the end of town (across from Casa Ramos). Ok, not bad. I had the pork carnitas-- large plates. Service was inattentive, friendly. Chips were heavy, not the best. They have a big menu.

          Mings on Miner. Dark inside. Mediocre food, but good option. Walnut prawns were tasty but heavily coated. Surrounded by nice steam broccoli. The foil wrapped chicken was good. Steamed rice was not good. Dry, low quality but hey-- so happy to have Chinese option.

          Wild Wood Coffee on Miner -- nice setting, friendly, local art displayed. We had a quick breakfast- bagels were good. Would go back.

          We didn't get to try and look very promising -

          On Miner St, Silverspoon Restaurant. Only open Thurs - Sun. It's also a kitchen store and wine bar.

          Brickhouse Pizza and Bakery, Miner street. Looked promising as well.

          Until next time!

            Thanks for the update! I'll be in Yreka one day this week, but we'll likely just be eating lunch. I'm going to print out your post, but I really hope Nature's Kitchen is open!

              Nature's Kithchen is very, um mediocre, if you are in Yreka Wed-Sat, try Silver Spoon, on Miner St, or Village Grind further down on MIner St. In Dunsmuir, Senthongs is great, also for b-fast, lunch Cornerstone is excellent.

                Admittedly, it was just soup and salad, but I enjoyed Nature's Kitchen. We'll be back between Weds. and Sat. What kind of food does Silver Spoon offer? Dunsmuir is a bit far from Yreka if you're not on a road trip...

                  Silver Spoon has eclectic California cuisine. Most if not all breads are house made, great salads, sandwiches, etc. I know the owners of Nature's Kitchen and they are great folks, but much of the food isn't very well made, imho

                    Made the trek to Yreka today and was out voted by colleagues - no Silver Spoon for us. We ate at Casa Ramos :(

              I work on Miner St and I have never heard of Wildwood cafe???? Are you talking about Village Grind? Mings, not so good. CASA Ramos is better than Puerto IMHO.
