Mendocino Farms | 238 S. Lake Avenue | 626-773-3140

Mendocino Farms main goal is to enrich the lives of all it touches, whether that's the farms and food artisans they partner with to source ingredients for the menu, the team members they rely upon to provide exceptional hospitality every day, or the guests who choose to seek them out. 

Their larger idea is to create neighborhood gathering places where friends, families, and coworkers can come together over a good meal, and maybe even learn something new about a local farm or a special seasonal ingredient. Conceiving of their sandwich shops as a means to build community helps them to elevate the restaurant into a resource.

At Mendocino Farms they choose to open their doors each day with the conviction that even something as simple as a sandwich shop can make a difference in peoples' lives-that's why they say that they don't just sell sandwiches, They Sell Happy.
