I couldn't decide what I wanted so the gal at the counter said, "These aren't on our board yet, but here is a savory baked french toast with goat cheese and sausage, and here is a sweet baked french toast." It was a tossup, but since I never order something sweet for breakfast I went with the "traditional" french toast.... More

Locals love this place, and we were directed here as the place we wanted to go to was closed. Pleasantly surprised with trout on the menu for lunch, as well as many sandwich and salads. The bread was excellent, the kitchen was hoping there is outside dining as well as tables inside, the only drawback the bathrooms are outside in... More

We'd read so many good things about this restaurant so last week a friend and I decided it was time to find out for ourselves. The other reviewers did not lie. Very cute, unpretentious, small restaurant with delicious food. I had the chicken salad sandwich on scrupulous bread along with a green salad. My friend had a pear and apple... More

Quaint place for great food, Zagat rated for a reason. Welcoming helpful staff, and charming atmosphere. Sit outside under umbrellas, look at the river or fine inside. Superb salads, soups, quiches, sandwiches and beverages. One if the best places in Petaluma to visit quietly and enjoy a lunch. We will be back. Also serving a great breakfast. !!!!

A nice location with a patio and nice interior space. They have delicious pastries and tasty quiche. Everyone is nice and prices are reasonable. An excellent breakfast or brunch spot.

The delicious homemade asparagus soup was so yummy, and my turkey sandwich with organic greens was a delight. The seating is tight in some areas but they do offer some outdoor seating as well. It was very busy so we had to sit on stools at a long wall table to share with others, but we were very happy with... More

A biz associate treated me to lunch at Water St. Bistro. What a jewel in Petaluma. Stephanie the owner makes you feel so at home. The smoked duck and peach salad was wonderful. The Meyer lemon and rosemary bread was so refreshing. Water St. is a repeat for sure on my next trip to Petaluma.

My friend and I happened upon this delightful place on our way to our vacation in Mendocino. We had been on a plane for 6 hours, waited for a rental car for 2 hours, got lost in traffic in San Francisco for 2 hours so we were starving and wanting some good food. Wow! We had the freshest and tastiest... More
