We stopped here on our self guided bike tour to pick up a picnic sandwich to take to Buena Vista winery. The sandwiches were delicious and good value relative to other pricing in the area. Pressed Panini's. Yummy stuff. It was 90 degrees and we had just climbed a mountain on bikes so ice cream sounded good . I think... More

Want a sandwich? Out of red wine? Great red wine? This is your place. Clean and friendly with a very large wine selection across price points, and reasonable prices to boot. Typical deli stuff besides but I'd stop here before anywhere else in the area for a deli meal.....

Nice place to stop for sandwiches, coffee, wine tasting and purchase. Past owner provided nice low cost tasting experience with interesting Europe wines. Great selections. New owners have just arrived. Stop by.

We've stopped here twice for the panini's and they've been great. Nice wine bar with local, rare wines at great prices! We both had the pastrami panini's today with local wine and really enjoyed it! Under new ownership too!

This is a great little place to stop in for some cute buys! It also has a little deli with some great hot and cold food options and plenty of beer and wine. They will make it for you there or pack it up for you to go! There are some seats there as well if you want to eat... More

As a deli, this cute little stop, just East of downtown Sonoma, gets only a passing grade. The sandwiches we ordered were fine, but small relative to the price, and took 30 minutes (no exaggeration) with virtually no one else in the store. Ironically, the Best part may be the little wine shop on the side. With so many wineries... More

This off the beaten track wine store/tasting, market/café and guest cottages was a real fine. Stopping in on our way to a weekend rental cottage in the area, this "gentleman" suggested that we stop back for the wine tasting starting at 5 o'clock that same day. Why not, I said to my wife. Local wines poured while the host bantered... More

If you're in the mood for casual and don't have high expectations for friendly service, then this is the place for you. Salad was good. Panini was high quality. Beverage selection and snacks were good. Bathroom was clean. Recommend sitting indoors as outdoor smelled like septic tank. Really, it's not bad. Just casual.

Small deli/cafe with a nice outdoor area where you can eat your sandwich/panini. They had a good selection of deli items like cheese, salads, sandwiches, meats and wines. You can take them away or eat them out the back in their little courtyard area. My panini was nice and tasted fresh to me. The staff were friendly. You order your... More
