There is a reason this place is rated the #1 restaurant in Sonoma. We had amazing brunch and mimosas on our first day in Sonoma and we talked about it the rest of the trip. You cannot go wrong here!

My friend and I stopped in for a quick lunch of chicken salad and smoked duck baguette. The food is fresh and of a high quality. It came quickly. We sat in the lovely courtyard area. Would definitely go back again.

We had the frittata special and we're delighted at how well it was prepared with a great flavor profile. The coffee was full bodied and robust. The courtyard is a happy little spot with a variety of seating options.

Great lunch spot. Most, if not all, of the ingredients used are locally sourced. Great club sandwich on a Rosemary focaccia bun. The waffle was delicious too. Be prepared to wait in line to place your order. Then have a seat in the peaceful garden...More

Don't let the lines out the front door deter you, it's a self-order restaurant and then servers bring your food to you as you choose a seat out front, inside or out back. They are extremely efficient! The meals were all prepared with a little...More
