“Great brunch”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

We stopped on the way to Napa, and we were not disappointed. We needed to sit outside because we were traveling with a dog, and they were very accommodating. The food was delicious.

While we were outside eating, and employee came out and gave several tables a bag of day old pastries if they wanted them.

“Icy Treats”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

We stopped in for iced tea and coffee to take a break from window shopping. The service was great and both the iced tea and blended vanilla coffee were delicious and refreshing. We saw a lot of cookies and pastries that looked great, but decided to save them for another time.

“Excellent place for breakfast”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

We were in sonoma t days for breakfast. the first day we went to the Homegrown Baking Co for bagels based in Yelp reviews. That place was terrible. The bagels were hard on the outside and dry in the middle (almost like pretzels) and the coffee was weak and not very good. So we decided to try this place even if there were some bad reviews about being crowded etc. Anyway the bread, rolls, pastry and chocolate croissants were all excellent and the coffee was very good. Highly recommended. Would go back every day if we stayed longer

“Delicious breakfast”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

We had breakfast here both mornings and loved the egg sandwiches and coffee. Also loved sitting outdoors and watching people walk by on the plaza.

“Excellent cookies and coffee”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

We stopped here quickly during our visit of Sonoma. The cookies were excellent and so were the coffee. The menu was quite impressive and included soups, sandwiches, pastries and other sweets. Everything seemed to be a very good value for the money.

I highly recommend to go there for breakfast, lunch or just to grab a cookie to go.
