“Dependable, good coffee where you need it!”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

This in-betweener located coffee shop is very handy! She uses good quality coffee and makes solid drinks. Only open M-F in the mornings, this is for commuters. For sure the best coffee for a few miles in any direction.

“Good Coffee, Excellent Service”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

I prefer to take my time and relax with coffee, ask the barista what beans they are using, watch them make the drink, and then enjoy the time. Still, there are times when your best coffee choice may not be in the ideal setting. This is one such time and place. Other than Hot Shots, good coffee in the early morning in Sonoma is difficult to come by. Peet's down the street is almost always crowded, but otherwise, it's big enough, and it's Peet's and it's reliable. But Hot Shots has by far the better coffee. And their staff are very friendly, and their process is pretty efficient considering the cramped quarters. Staff remembered us each day we visited. Didn't try any of their food. But one morning, we did find a little table in front of the florist shop to enjoy the coffee. Otherwise, stay at MacArthur Place, sneak out for coffee at Hot Shots, and bring it back to your SO.

“Great spot for quick breakfast”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

This is a great little one of a kind spot. We hit this place a few mornings on our vacation after getting in a good workout at EA's Crossfit. (We were too sweaty and gross and starving to go sit in a restaurant!) Great coffee and breakfast sandwiches ready in very little time. Very friendly staff. It's worth a shot!

It is very convenient to the Lodge at Sonoma. They had a friendly and helpful staff and it was dog friendly, handing out dog treats.
