Great lunch spot

The line looks long but it moves quickly and there is plenty of seating in the back. I had the grilled cheese with bacon - yummy.

One of two choices for breakfast on the square, should have gone back to the other. A $40 breakfast should be much better. Good...Order line moves quickly. Seating out back is in a relaxed courtyard setting with a fountain. Bad...You order and pay, they bring it to your table. Be prepared to wait, and you don't have your coffee. They... More

This is a casual restaurant with gourmet pretentions and a lot of ambiguities. First, you wait in line to order at a counter then find available seating...o.k. but your iPad checkout shows options for 15% and 20% tips. The person who brings your food has no idea what you ordered and no vested interest in seeing that you're happy. The... More

I stayed in Sonoma for 3 days and I ate breakfast here every morning. Sat outside in the front or in the garden out back and it is a perfect start to the day. The food is really healthy and fresh and the smoothies are delicious. I would recommend this place for breakfast and lunch as they close at 4pm.

Nice little garden to enjoy lunch; the food is delicious and the prices were pretty reasonable. It was a hot day but the water features and shade helped cool things off.

Had just arrived in town. What a great stop for lunch. Daughter loved the grilled cheese with avocado and bacon and loved it. All of the other meals were great as well. Everything is prepared fresh and delicious. A great place to eat!

This place was very busy and had to wait but our breakfast for 4 was wonderful. Everything was very tasty and the coffee and lattes tasted great. Very nice backyard outdoor seating. Would highly recommend breakfast here if in town.

Stopped in for some iced tea and lemonade to rest for a bit. We all enjoyed our teas and lemonades out in the back in the shade. It is a great place to hang out. I also had a grilled vegetable salad that was really good. My daughter got a avocado on toast that she really liked. There are a... More

Probably the best breakfast place in Sonoma. Does great eggs and other typical breakfast meals. You have to order at the bar, and on the weekend the line is HUGE...but don't be disheartened. The line moves fast, the food comes quickly. Service is great...just make sure you're prepared for the way you need to order and you won't be disappointed.... More
