Yes, this place is pricey for breakfast. The interior is not fancy. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. This the only place that we have ever had lemon pancakes ($13), and they are good. I had the eggs benedicts ($18) and they were nothing to write home about...rather bland. The coffee was very good ($4). When we are in Sonoma we always stop here just for the lemon pancakes.

My husband and I wanted a good breakfast spot near our hotel, the fairmont. We were very disappointed. The atmosphere wasn't anything special and the food was ridiculously priced for breakfast. Most meals were $17-$25. A side of two scrambled eggs was $8! We could find better in Sonoma!

We enjoyed a quick and casual breakfast at Big 3.
WE asked for a table for 7 but most people did not show up.
The staff set the table but when we learned that there would only be three of us they did not hesitate to be very accommodating which was extremely nice of them.

The restaurant decor is nothing special but it is comfortable and the waiting area is huge. It might have a long wait at times but there is plenty of space with televisions for your pre-meal entertainment.

We just had muffins, smoothies and oatmeal but each item was well prepared and high quality. The service was prompt and friendly.

Nothing to rave about but it was exactly what we wanted.
