I met a friend here for a lunch meeting and quickly returned with my family. SO good! Plus great environment — you might not expect from the outside! My favorites are the ham biscuit with cardamom jam and smoked ham (I add a poached egg on the side) and the pancakes (RIDICULOUS!) so light with buttermilk flavor perfection. My mom... More

If you don't mind outside patio tables with fresh cooked comfort food and the company of a few California chickens, you'll love the Fremont Diner experience. Went here on a recent Sonoma vacation for lunch and had good food. (Burger was excellent!) The only complaint would be it was a little slow to get our meals, but, we weren't pressed... More

If you're driving between Napa & Sonoma and pass by what appears to be a small diner in disrepair, turn around and pull into the parking lot. You'll find this little diner has home grown meats & fresh garden veggies, as well as Mexican Coke in glass bottles. From slow cooked brisket to range-free fried chicken, it's all good. Eat... More

Fremont Diner is filled with nostalgia. It's quirky in all the best ways!! You'll feel like you stepped back in time to a simpler time. Nothing fancy or fru-fru, so don't go there expecting an upscale scene. DO, however, go there expecting the food to be fantastic and all homemade. Good beer selection and fresh-squeezed lemonade that'll turn your mouth... More

We went here for breakfast. The restaurant is small but on a Thursday we didn't have any problems getting a table. All the food is meant to fill you up. No "on a diet options". Whipped cream, ham, biscuits and fried chicken. Everything was good and it was a reasonable price.

We were recommended here by our air bnb hosts, and it was a highlight so far. My wife admitted that she wouldn't have ventured in if not for the recommendation. Friendly service, great food and a taste of mid west America. Rustic but clean and authentic.

My friends and I were directed to this Diner and we were VERY happy with the recommendation. We arrived at this rustic stop along a dusty road and found that it was an hour wait. The hour went by quickly. There was a silver trailer out there which served breakfast bevvies, as well as, shakes to hold the folks over... More

This is a very unassuming place with amazing food. When you order coffee they bring you 2 cups & the coffee is in a thermos. The coffee is very good.I had a fried egg sandwich that was so large I could not finish. My husband had the housemade hash with grits-also amazing. The next time we are in Sonoma we... More

So good! We got the fried chicken and briscuit platter (on special). Both were delicious! Also had a great beer list! Everything on the menu looked so good! Unexpected if you look at the outside, but everything was great!
