After walking in and out of a few places down town, we decided to give this place a try. The menu is full of local flavor from the bread to the bacon. I am a sour dough bread snob and this was the best I had on my entire trip to northern California. The breakfast sandwiches were on point and... More

If you're in the mood to sit outside and enjoy some h'orderves and have a glass of wine....with your dog...here's your spot. Lots of people bring their dogs and while it's nice...some people tie them up and go inside and the dogs get anxious....hence start barking. I saw one woman enjoying her meal inside while the dog yapped outside and... More

You can find just about anything to feed the belly or soul at this sweet spot. The owner has made it a meeting place for locals, and anyone who is in the know...or wants to be. Speakers and music of all kinds and subject matter are calmed ares nightly. There is a quarterly Community Crawl that has its participants meandering... More

The clerk seemed like she really wanted to be somewhere else, and she scoffed at my 20% tip on a $5 breakfast. It's a dollar, and you handed me an apricot bar and an empty coffee mug. Sorry that I didn't over pay for simple gestures.

Close to Metro Hotel though a few blocks from the main street, this bar had great atmosphere - very friendly service and happy hour beer was under $4 a pint. The panini (a reuben and a duck sandwich) were served fast and hot. It definitely had a neighbourhood feel and we were happy to find it - would recommend looking... More

Within walking distance from Metro Hotel. Great food menu items, beer and wine The evening I walked in for homemade soup there were locals reading a play, kinda like a performance. Service was kind and pleasant

This is such a hidden treasure in Petaluma. The owner, John, coined the place to be the focal point of a "community" of people. The behind the counter folks are beyond friendly, attentive, engaging and know how to do their jobs. I have been going there on Wednesday afternoons to play cribbage with some people I know and play with... More
