Great lunch spot--organic & gluten free available

We had an awesome lunch sitting on the patio. Best-EVER grilled cheese+bacon+avocado sandwich on gluten free bread--a rare treat for someone who is usually sandwich-deprived. My husband enjoyed his Ham & Brie sandwich. Order at the counter--wait staff serves. We'd go back!

We drove into Sonoma and parked on the green. Just across the street was a nice spot for lunch. Sandwiches in the back garden were just what my stomach ordered. Excellent iced tea can't be over stated!

sunflower was recommended by our tour guide on our trip to Sonoma. We had toasted cheese with different fillings. The sourdough bread was delicious and service was quick. I would say one of the best spots to grab a simple lunch in the town Sonoma.

I personally had the avocado toast... More

Had sandwiches here with friends. Really tasty but a bit on the dry side. Reasonable prices. Back patio area lovely but a bit granola for me....the service was good...plenty of parking. Scrumptious fruit cups!

This place has come so far! Its a great hideaway - the back garden is amazing and so quiet and away from the frenzy of the plaza. Gorgeous setting, and the food is very delicious here. The Soup King, Curtis, left here, and is now at the Swiss Hotel, and his soups went with him. Still the soup I had,... More

We stopped in on our last day in town before flying out. It was a perfect find! We sat on the back patio and enjoyed delicious omelets. Glad we found it!

The locals eat here and easy to understand the food was good. The place was packed. Do not expect service, once you order the food at the counter, it will be brought to your table. I asked one of the workers if i could have more coffee, and he said sure, go to the front of the restaurant and get... More

This is exactly the type of hidden gem I like to find. A delicious locally sourced menu; I thought the breakfast selection was excellent. Loved the breakfast "toast"! Most of all I loved the quiet, secluded garden eating area off the back of this establishment. Located right along the square, easy access to parking. Will be back to try lunch... More
