While in SoHum, don’t miss Il Forno Bakery, your stop for breakfast, lunch or to simply satisfy sweet tooth cravings. This place does it all and in record time with friendly service. Il Forno is a great place to grab a hot drink—they serve Signature Coffee from a local roaster and organic teas and a variety of other drinks. Grab a quick bite to go (the frittata and quiche both travel well) or stay and mingle with the locals. The bakery is also a cozy spot to linger over breakfast or lunch with family and friends. Each day the head baker starts at 2 in the morning to prepare delectable Il Forno Bakery staples (like those biscuits!) and unexpected specials like the Lime-Jalapeno Glazed Donuts. The Chicken Salad is a huge hit here and sells out regularly. If you plan to spend the day along the Avenue of the Giants adventuring in Humboldt Redwoods State Park, build your own picnic from deviled eggs, potato salad, sandwiches, vegan and vegetarian options, salads and (of course!) dessert for a feast worthy of your majestic surroundings.

Gyp·​po noun. (Jip-oh). In the same spirit as the craft beer industry, a Gyppo logging operation was small, independent and self-reliant. Gyppo Ale Mill celebrates that spirit and raises a pint to all living a freewheeling and independent life. The Gyppo Ale Mill’s brewhouse supplies Gyppos 12 taps with a rotating array of beer styles along with staples like Mexican Lager, Beach Beer and Dave’s Pilsner. The menu from the Gyppo kitchen utilizes the bounty of local ingredients including fish fresh from the Shelter Cove waters for fish and chips and baja tacos, free-range chicken, grass-fed beef and produce from SoHum farms. Have some free-wheeling fun in the outdoor, heated beer garden with an assortment of games the whole family can enjoy, and free music live on Friday and Saturday evenings. It’s a kid and dog-friendly atmosphere and there’s always a reason to gather there, whether that be Foosball and Cornhole Tournaments, Bingo & Beers, or Thinkin’ & Drinkin.’ While you’re there, pick up a growler or a 4-pack of your favorite brew to enjoy later and ask for Gyppo at markets, bars and restaurants throughout the county.
