The Strawhouse Café is where it all started…
A 2000 square-foot straw bale structure with a commanding view of the Trinity River. Open daily from 7 AM to 6 PM, serving freshly baked goods, breakfast, and lunch from our kitchen. We serve wood-fired pizzas every Friday during the winter from noon to 8 pm, and every Friday, Saturday, Sunday during the summer months from noon to 8 pm (Sunday’s we close at 7 pm). For more information, please click on our Calendar of Events tab.
Here we host many of our outdoor events and groups. The indoor seating area will hold 30 guests and the patio area will hold up to 150 guests. The Strawhouse Cafe’ is known for its exceptional, all-organic gourmet coffees that we roast here on the premise. There is a nice selection of micro brews, and we feature several local wines.
In the cafe’ you will find a nice selection of Fire and Light. Made locally from recycled glass, this hand-poured colored glass tableware and accessories is absolutely stunning with the unique play of light that filters through its rich spectrum of colors and textures. This enchantment is not simply a quality of the glass or its pigmentation, but of the very way in which it is made, the very hands that pour and press it, the beliefs and spirit that drive the people who craft the product, and the community from which it originates.

We also carry Dick Taylor Craft Chocolates. Locally made from raw cacao, they source the finest fair-trade cacao and then roast, winnow, stone grind, age, mold and temper it all in their small factory in Arcata, California. This entire process takes over a month to complete, but allows them to make some of the finest chocolate possible. They only use organic cacao and organic cane sugar in our chocolate. Your senses will come alive with the first bite!
The cafe’ carries some of the finest artwork Trinity County produces, including but not limited to, photography, original paintings, and unique jewelry. One stop can truly meet all your needs!
