Healthy, happy, friendly vibe!

This is a great place where you can satisfy just about any wacky diet or eating habits you may have! In my case, I'm off the carbs again, post holidays, though I always try to eat that way. Tomatoes for toast, no problem! Side of steamed vegetables at brunch, can do. I mean this is a very hippy... read more

I went in today for a nice quiet lunch with my coworker -only to be greeted by extremely loud live music.....Way too loud - the server's couldn't even hear me to take my order. Luckily it was warm enough to sit outside - but if this continues in the cooler months, they have lost my business

I went here to meet an old friend for breakfast and it was a good time. The staff were friendly and helpful. You order at the counter, but they let us get our drinks and go sit down so we could have some time to look over the menu before ordering. That helped avoid that feeling of being rushed to... More

Hit or miss at this old favorite. I've been coming here since 1975 when it was the Last Great Hiding Place. The help can be rude and the prices seem a bit high for what it is. I hear from musicians that they don't get paid for playing here and they don't even get a meal. We don't usually go... More

The clerk at our hotel recommended the Redwood Café and we are so glad she did. This was our first meal upon arriving in Sonoma on vacation. The spicy shrimp wrap was delicious as well as the Greek Salad. Staff is friendly, professional and courteous. We will eat there again in a heartbeat.
