Strawhouse Café

Your Local Café & Coffee Shop in Northern CA

Our 2000 square-foot straw bale cafe’ started construction in 1998, and we opened our doors to the public in May 2000.  We invite you to come enjoy the commanding view of the Trinity River while sipping a specialty drink made with our freshly roasted organic coffee/espresso and munching on something delicious from our kitchen.

As everyone else is, we are navigating the current Covid-19 situation on a daily basis.  We thank you for your patience and understanding in this time of ever-changing details.  Please know that we are doing everything we can to make sure you are in a safe and comfortable environment when you step through our doors.

For right now, our hours are subject-to-change, and we will be working with a limited menu until things even out a little bit more.

We appreciate you and want to give you our very best each time you visit us!


Monday – Thursday:  8 am to 3 pm
Friday – Sunday:        8 am to 6 pm

When we can again (host events and have inside dining) – 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.

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 Eureka, 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!

Another talented artist featured in our café is Pat Blair, Metal Sculptor.  We have a variety of his copper art bracelets, among other works.  His bracelets are made entirely from post construction recycled copper.   Click here to view some of his artistry.

The cafe’ carries some of the finest artwork Trinity and Humboldt Counties produce, including but not limited to, photography, original paintings, and unique jewelry.  One stop can truly meet all your needs!
