I was glad to have read some other reviews and picked this as a quick stop for lunch before heading out to a winery tour. It was a great sandwich lunch. My husband and I both order the chicken salad sandwich, which was very filling. Our teenagers ordered the BLT and the Grilled Cheese. Both gave a thumbs up. There is not much room for dining so be on the look out to grab a table when someone else gets up. Also gets very busy at lunch time. Standing room only inside.

We always try to stop here when we're in town, and sometimes we're willing to just drive 2 hours to enjoy the place. You can sit inside or across in the park, enjoy espresso or sandwiches and just savor every bite of everything they make.

Saturday morning, 8AM, decided to get breakfast in Sonoma, one of the few places open around the square. WHAT A PLEASANT SURPRISE! We could have been in France or Italy. Friendly service, tables inside and out, great tasting egg and cheese croissants, good strong coffee, and all those baked goods. We enjoyed the local ambiance for about 45 minutes, then left with an assortment of fresh bread and pastries. None of them survived our kids and grandkids to Sunday.

What a great place we found by accident. I could not decide between the fresh basked goods and the breakfast so i had both!. The pecan rolls was excellent and fresh and my croissant breakfast sandwich with ham and eggs was excellent as well. Nice selection of coffee to choose from as well. You can get a mug if you are eating in or a cup for "to go". Their are some tables both inside and out. It is crowded for a reason, it is really good!
