The Fig Cafe is simple, few frills but great service and food. What more can you ask for, except for a reservation which will be well worth your while.

Most will be drawn to the Star via their ratings and reputation. The Fig is a great option steps away. We had a wonderful experience when we arrived to town. It would s amazing that this tiny town has 2 options of this caliber.

The plate of the day is a delicious bargain. We had tenderloin medallions with fingerling potatoes and zucchini in a delightful sauce that was not “hot” but tingled our tastebuds. The bread pudding was awesome. This is a local favorite. No wine corkage charge either....More

We have a vacation home in nearby Sonoma, so we dine here often. Last night, we had their prix-fixe, 3-course dinner, which was sensational. First course was an excellent corn cake, served with frisee and a nice, creamy sauce; main course was a humongous, perfectly...More

The wine list was very interesting, but I did not notice if they offered St. Anne's wines.
