A lot of things in Napa/Sonoma are really fancy, and kind-of overpriced, this is one of the few places (that isn't a bakery), that isn't but you can still get a good meal. Also in nice weather the backporch is a really nice place to eat.

I absolutely love this restaurant. From the food and drinks to sitting in the patio area behind it. Having eaten here several times over the past 2 years I have yet to be disappointed. Their blinis are out of this world using actual peaches in their drink. I have had their fritatta's, their soups and sandwiches and their American breakfast.... More

Really cool front and back seating area. Wait wasn't too long and staff will bring you your order to the table. My raspberry latte was just O.K. I've had better....but it wasn't awful. Plenty of parking across the street. Nice ambiance. Great place to start your day in Sonoma!

Great place to go on a sunny day in Sonoma.- especially for brunch. Sit at outside tables and people watch or sit in the back patio on a hot day. Quite nice.

There's something about this place that makes me smile just walking in the door. Sure it can be crowded, especially from breakfast through lunch, but unless you are in a rush it is well worth the time. I'm a fanatic about eating outdoors and this place really does it for me. Not the most comfortable tables and chairs but the... More

I get it. It's trendy and all the young people like it. I beg to differ. The food quality just isn't that great. The service is annoying and delivered by relentless hipsters. I can barely breathe inside this place. I think it's something with the hood. It's very smoky. The biggest thing this place has going for it is it's... More

Perfect farm fresh Cafe at Sonoma Plaza, also known as "The Square." Walk in and order at the counter and find a seat either inside or outside on the sidewalk. The food is excellent, probably one of the best breakfast/lunch places in the square. We stayed at an air BnB and our local hosts told us about this place. We... More

Love the food, the people and the atmosphere. Perfect way to start our day! The bacon is amazing I ordered a bunch of side items because I didn't see all I wanted in one meal. Lots of amazing choices.

Tried breakfast shortly after 8 am. Yummy choices. Loved the breakfast burrito and sunflower scramble. Banana mango (Sonoma Sunrise) smoothie was divine as was the morning bun. Sweet place with great atmosphere and service on the west side of the plaza.

I'm not a huge breakfast fan, but I would go back here every morning if I could. I had a scone and the frittata and WOW they were amazing. My husband had the breakfast burrito and it was really great too. Healthy, tasty and friendly service. Really a hidden gem. We'll be back!
