Raspberry raisin scone, chocolate walnut muffin, chocolate cherry muffin! I came back day after day for the baked goods. They were huge and only $2.15 each. I can't vouch for the meals, but the bakery is excellent and a tremendously good value.

Sonoma square needs a decent cafe for breakfast. We went here because there was no where else to grab a coffee and pastry in the morning. It was jam-packed. The pastries were disappointing as they did not seem fresh. The quiche was dense and flat and seemed like it could have come out of a Marie-Callendars frozen box. The croissants... More

Nothing much to say against this place. The bread was tasty, the tomato and carrot soup we had was definately a hit for us. One of the best soup we have had for a while. Great food, decent price, definately a winner for sonoma.

The aromas coming from this bakery/cafe are heavenly and so we were enticed inside. There isn't a great deal of seating inside the cafe but we were able to secure a spot to eat our chocolate croissant which was very tasty. I also bought some football-shaped ginger cookies (it was Super Bowl weekend) which were a mild-ginger flavor and some... More

One of the best scones I have had in years, excellent coffee, long line, but servers helped it move right along. Great location in center of town; good energy.

This is a nice place for a cup of coffee (or latte etc.) and some excellent home-made pastries, bread and other good things to eat.

Stopped in here to grab a piece of cake and some coffee. We ordered the Princess Cake and a small chocolate fudge cake. Both were delicious! It was nice to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful weather while we ate our cake. Will definitely come here again.

Visited on Saturday ~ 3:30 pm. Ordered the large Organic Green Salad with roasted chicken (to-go) but was given the Chicken Salad on organic greens. Not happy about this mistake since I don't enjoy mayonnaise. Too bad i did not realize this until i had already left. Also ordered the Apple Cranberry Tarte - it was good, though not exceptional....

The coffee was good and the pastry was ok It's fun to sit on the sidewalk and watch the people go by The lunch menu sandwiches looked interesting but I didn't try any. If your walking the square it's a good place to stop for a break
