Awesome breakfast

Very friendly staff with generous portions. My omelette was big enough to feed a family of 4 with very fresh ingredients. Very open atmosphere with home made jam on each table. Do not be fooled by the location in the strip mall.

Don't miss Pearl's when you are in Sonoma. Great local diner. Excellent food, great service and a charming environment. I love an open kitchen. They had a nice crowd when i was there and the food came out incredibly fast

If you like French Toast (fried, of course even though they offer grilled version, too) Pearl's is the place for you to have a breakfast to make you feel warm and fuzzy. Try the fork scrambled eggs and the sausages that taste like no other sausage you had before. And you don't have to pay the special tourist prices either.

Ignore that it is in a strip mall. This is one of the old Sonoma Institutions. Buy some of the local made hot sauce to bring home.

While visiting Sonoma, we wanted a local diner and Pearl's popped up on Urban Spoon. I had the Hey Haystack($9.75) which was two scrambled eggs topped with cheddar over a thick slice of ham and hashbrown potatoes. It was plentiful and tasty but I did also add a special spicy hot sauce. And it was SPICY ! I loved it.... More

If you like the light, fluffy eggs that Fred's in Sausalito serves, then you'll love Pearls! This is a all-american breakfast/lunch place. Nothing fancy...just good food. Their eggs are whipped in a milkshake blender and the bacon is thick and plentiful. Great French Toast and pancakes, too. Best breakfast in Sonoma!!

We had a large group 10 in all with 2 small kids-- service was perfect! Ally was our waitress and couldn't have been nicer or more organized. Chicken fried steak was tender and well easoned. The sausage,bacon and pancakes were all good. Atmosphere was really fun - the owner stopped by to chat and couldn't have been nicer. We ate... More

My friend and I stopped in here because the Chinese restaurant next door had been recommended, but was closed and we saw Pearl's sign, so we decided rather than drive to another place, we would try Pearl's out. We both had hamburgers (Neiman Ranch beef). I had the "curly" fries and my friend had the "sweet potato" fries. The burgers... More

We went to Pearl's for a business breakfast. The service was lacking and it took forever to get our food. One of my coworkers ordered coffee and the cream it came with was curdled. When both she and the people at the table next to us asked to have new cream, the request was granted, but no apology or comment... More

but the service was s l o w e r than when I last ate here a year ago, and they managed to burn my wife's French Toast. Can't say I'll be going back.
