Lunch in Guerneville

Watch for Russian Rive historian John Schubert who hangs out here, hooked on the home made soups! Great deli, superb staff, fun vibe, paninis, salads, wine and beer. Great spot for lunch!

Purveyor of locally sourced artisanal products (including wines, sauces and cookbooks), this unpretentious storefront was an unexpected delight. Offered an assortment of gourmet sandwiches and salads, we chose a to die for chicken curry with cashews and currants, available as either as a large salad or sandwich(on croissant, I substituted ciabatta) with side salad of arugala and herbal greens.

Go, you'll be pleasantly surprised~ I had lunch here with my wife and son for the first time yesterday and what a wonderful experience! Great sandwich place serving local, Oakland to Sonoma County, artisan goods. The ambiance is warm and inviting along with some of the most delicious Chicken Curry and Coleslaw I've ever had~

Absolutely fabulous breakfast biscuits. The iced blackberry and pistachio biscuit may have been one of the best things I have EVER eaten for breakfast. Loved the atmosphere and even though we were the only people there (this time of year and a Monday)- it felt warm and inviting. Going back tomorrow before we leave!

Big Bottom is basically a deli, with table seating, that serves locally sourced foods prepared spectacularly well. It makes a great lunch stop after visiting Armstrong Redwood Forest or one of the other local attractions

If you are looking for a place for a quick breakfast, lunch or take-out when visiting the Armstrong Redwoods, this is a great choice. Very tasty and interesting sandwiches, salads, and sides. Somewhat limited seating but it wasn't a problem during our visit.

We held a private event here recently and were so happy we did. We knew their food was good but they also made the place beautiful. And the food was amazing! Our guests loved the huge spread of dips, sandwiches and biscuits. And the leftovers soothed our hangovers the next morning. Overall, fantastic food at a great value and the... More
