Perfect for picnics

Great sandwiches and salads, lovely selection of wines and other beverages. Its the perfect place to pick up lunch and snacks for a picnic whether along the river, or out on the beach!

We went for breakfast. Very, very carb heavy - lots of biscuits and sandwiches. You wait in a line to order and then sit down. Seating is very limited if the place is busy. We were there during Lazy Bear weekend and it was extremely busy. Food: Biscuits are their thing and they are OK if you are into biscuits.... More

Creative and delicious sandwiches, amazing biscuits, yummy soups and salads and stuff to drink, in a cool retro market space. A bit overpriced, and maybe trying too hard to be hip, but worth a visit.

The handmade sandwiches are the primary reason to stop here-we stop by to pick up sandwiches and chips for our annual vacation picnic while out wine tasting in Sonoma county--but, the sandwiches are big, chunky and tasty enough, we make a final stop on our way out of town-to enjoy them while we travel. Great wines available by the bottle,... More

Looking for a place to eat lunch in Guerneville, we stopped at an ice-crean shop and requested recommendations. We were imediately directed to the nearby Big Bottom Market which is on Main Street.This is a combination market and deli. Modest surroundings, but the soups were outstanding and our salads and sandwiches (really good bread) were very good. Service was friendly... More

the wine country has a number of upscale grocery/mercantile shops, and this is one of them. Looking at the menu (creative baked goods and sandwiches, high end coffee) this place is trying to be a special stop, but the execution just wasn't there. Espresso drinks were so-so (under extracted, probably not a fine enough grind, which is a shame because... More

Everything here is delicious- biscuits, coffee, organic local fare, however the chicken pot pie is hands down the best ever. They don't always have it on hand, if they do, don't miss out!
