Super cute little market right in town that serves the most amazing biscuits I have ever eaten! Apparently they are Oprah's favorites if you are into following what she favorites. So they have a small selection of breakfast sandwiches and lunch salads and sandwiches. Of course the biscuits too, you can get them with honey and jam, mascarpone and honey,... More

low key restaurant and cafe right in the center of Guerneville. We had the chickpea salad and curried chicken salad. Both were super fresh and enjoyable. A nice selection of pastries too. Sit outside if possible!

This place is more a cafe than a "market". They specialize in biscuits, alas, biscuits are not in my diet. The food we did choose was tasty and fresh. They have a great selection of beverages including beer, (in bottles) and wine.

We heard this was listed as one of Oprah's faves (not sure if that's true or not) but we enjoyed an almond milk hot chocolate and biscuit. My husband thought his cappuccino was average and had too much foam and milk. We got a fantastic sandwich and potato salad to go which we later ate in Armstrong Redwood Forest. I... More

Started our morning here enjoying a biscuit breakfast. Apparently, the biscuits are an Oprah favorite thing. I resisted the urge to buy the mix because there are less ingredients in the biscuit mix then what must be added at home. Despite that, we enjoyed an excellent meal of Black Forest ham and cheese biscuits and paninis. Quick service and friendly... More

A couple at our hotel suggested this restaurant if we liked biscuits! Well, who doesn't? Each of us ordered something different and there wasn't a complaint between us other than we ate too much. Each meal is made when ordered so it doesn't come in a hurry especially if there are folks ahead of you, but be patient. It is... More

Love the food, the people and the cool atmosphere. Have returned many times and brought friends. They are open for private parties in the evening too!

We sat outside and greatly enjoyed our sandwiches (pulled pork and grilled cheese). The sandwiches were very tasty and came with a small green salad. It was a very pleasant Guerneville experience. By the way, the market name refers to the "big bottom" of the river! 😊

Good place for a quick healthy bite. Grab n' go or eat there. They are known for their biscuits and muffins... Fig, goat cheese muffin (a little under-baked) with a bowl of granola and fresh fruit, delicious! Hard boiled egg sandwich was interesting. Vanilla Latte, nice! Fun vibe and interesting local gifts!

First visit had the ham and cheddar biscuit which blew me away. Second visit for breakfast had the biscuit and jam. So good I bought their pre-mix to make at home.
