“Lunching with a river view”
Reviewed November 5, 2013 via mobile

This is a nice place to sit, eat and talk with friends. The food is fine, we all had salads. You go to the counter, select your meal, seat your self and wait to enjoy your selection. The iced tea was not the ordinary tea you will find, but much better. Delicious fresh taste.

Perfect spot to stop off for a tasty sandwich or salad. Great outdoor seating by the river and delicious iced tea!

“Quirky coffee shop with delicious coffee”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

My boss asked to meet at The Applebox because it was a mid-way point between Santa Rosa and San Rafael. Parking was easy, and it is in a good location right behind the movie theaters and near downtown Petaluma. The coffee was possibly some of the best that I have ever had. My boss had a pastry and said it was quite good. I guess my only negative comment is that the decor is" early hoarder". The place could really benefit from some organization and general cleaning, but maybe that would take away from the quirkiness. Go for the food, not the decor.

“Enjoy the view, service and food”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

O.K. you may wait a couple of minutes for your coffee, but it's ground and brewed when you order it. Don't go if you are in a rush. Starbucks and Peets are around the corner for that. Get a cup of Joe, a little something (homemade) to eat and mosey out to the deck for a relaxed morning. Dogs are welcome. Just try it...

The whole place seemed a bit unorganized but breakfast was very good. Very nice location. Get the scrambler with apple sausage.
