This is good breakfast food. Try it when you are ready for something for different. They had very good mimosas!

For some years we have taken a 40 minute drive to have a special breakfast here. Our latest visit in over a year was very disappointing. We both had benedicts, a favorite. The recipe has changed considerably. The eggs and one piece of bacon were on a piece of bread, not an English muffin, and layered with a strange salty... More

Had breakfast here on our trip, the eggs were a little cold and coffee bitter. The waitress wasn't friendly. The place was quaint but the food average.

This is not a pretentious place (unlike most in Sonoma/Napa) but the food is excellent. We had fantastic sandwiches and salads. Recommended for breakfast or easy lunch.
