Happen to visit Santa Rosa and came upon this small cafe. The food at this cafe is terrific. An out of the way cafe with A+ food selections. Worth stopping by for a bite.

Really good down home food - we shared a table with a single woman - it's that kind of friendly. Good service, good prices - just a good place to go - yes, Yogi - it's always crowded - :) Worth the wait!
