Big Bottom Market is in the heart of Guerneville, and makes for a great lunch spot. My husband had a great smoke salmon sandwich on one of their famous biscuits, and it was a generous size and different than your usual lox and bagel. The fruit salad that I had along with the unavoidable biscuit was very tasty. The place... More

We ordered box lunches from Big Bottom Market with sandwiches or salads. Also ordered some of their famous biscuits - they are very large, so we split them between two people. The biscuits were good, but I think they would have been much better if we could have had them at the market when they were warm.

We ate here for breakfast a couple of times and grabbed a sandwich for lunch to take on a hike. We had the sea biscuit and the bun with ham and cheese. Both were delicious. Also had a plain bun with jam, bacon and a boiled egg. So good. Coffee is rich and flavourful. Can't wait to go back. Took... More

There was a line to get food the whole time we were there. We had sandwiches soup and salad and it was all delicious. They had ran out of jam so they substituted honey for my biscuit. It is a little pricey for the amount of food you get. You can also purchase local food, wine and other items.

I couldn't believe this cute, modern place was hiding right next to the aptly named bohemian highway. The biscuits are soft, but with that crisp salty top- I had mine with just... More
