My wife and I were staying outside of town and decided to come in for some coffee and pastries. This place delivered on the pastry front-almond and apricot scone and cherry turnover. We bought a couple and enjoyed across the street in the square. I would recommend trying this place if you like scones, donuts,etc.

Worth stopping by for breakfast or lunch as they have great baked goodies and good coffee. Not really a sit-down place, but more of a grab and go.

Every time we visit our daughter in this area, we go to Sonoma's town square and have coffee and breakfast or lunch at the Basque Cafe/ Bakery.

We stopped here for a quick breakfast on the way to the winery tours of the day. I had a croissant with ham, eggs and american cheese. It was flaky, warm and delicious. My husband had the coffee and said it was very good.

Basque Boulangerie is an inexpensive bakery/deli with home made breads and various pastry items. They serve a dozen or so sandwiches, and a few other items, for lunch. It has a cozy bustling atmosphere and perhaps this explains much of its appeal. Basque is quite popular with locals and tourists, which as I have said I fail to understand given... More

Food and coffee was outstanding as was service. Toughest thing was deciding which item to order (I ended up getting 2 rather than making the choice). I went 2 days in a row it was so good. I highly recommend it.

After a long day I needed a good sandwich to quench my appetite and bingo I found this place and lucky of me I was the last customer! I get a Sandwich/Vegetarian omelet type just what I needed. I ordered a capuccino and a fresh fruit cup. All Great at a good price!

Stopped in to the bakery - I had a sandwich and my wife had rolls with coffee. The breads / rolls / Cookies are great - good coffee and iced tea. Well worth the break.

I ate here for breakfast/lunch. They offer a variety of breakfast sandwiches that are yummy and the bread is fresh. My husband also got french toast, which was good. A good place for take out or a quick bite with some indoor and outdoor seating.
