Rollerville Café is a classic café serving lunch and breakfast in Point Arena, CA. It opened in 2007 and is adjacent to a Lighthouse Pointe Resort that both claim to be the last stop before going to Hawaii and for fueling up to tour the nearby lighthouse attraction. The interior is small but there is a patio with additional seating outside. Some of the well spaced tables have fun salt & pepper sets as decorations. There was faint music in the background – possible a radio in the kitchen and plenty of light in the room from all the windows. There were daily specials for breakfast and lunch but serving time seemed to be divided by 11:00 am or noon on the weekend. Service was friendly and efficient. It’s worth a visit.
Fred’s Grilled Chicken Sandwich was a 6 oz. grilled chicken breast on a steak roll with mayonnaise, tomato, lettuce and onion. The server suggested adding bacon and Swiss cheese, so we did. The sandwich comes with salad or fries. The nice long roll was well stuffed with moist chicken and thick tasty bacon. The red onion was a tad hot but easily removed. The fries were frozen but crisp and lightly seasoned. With the addition of cheese and bacon, the sandwich was a filling and tasty combo.
Baja Fish Tacos come as a single for $13.50 or 2 for $16.50 and the fresh cod can be sautéed or tempura beer battered. I chose 2 and had them tempura style. They are topped with an authentic spicy Baja sauce and Mexican style coleslaw. The plate comes with a salad or fries and I took fries. The fried fish pieces were large and generous on the single tortilla. The batter was really crisp, not too heavy and not greasy. The sauce and slaw made an excellent pairing but it was really hard to pick up and eat like a taco. It was the better of the two plates. The thin fries were crisp and a generous portion.
