Had breakfast there twice while visiting a friend. Varied, interesting menu with everything from vegan specials to a "heart stopping good" corned beef hash that probably took 12 minutes off my life and was worth it. Excellent coffee. Service was friendly and efficient and both...More

Most tasty sandwich you will find. Service is excellent, decor great, not a place to be missed. They don't take cards so bring cash or use the ATM (may not have cash in it though). Worth this small inconvenience.

My fiance and I have a gluten free diet. Gluten-free pancakes? Gluten-free toast for my amazing egg breakfast with yummy sausage? Gluten free muffin to-go? That was fun! Excellent food. Fresh and healthy. Fun environment. We went two days in-a-row.

A long time part of occidental, the bakery is a favorite with locals and visitors, especially the bicyclers who frequent West Sonoma County. Large menu with enough to appeal to all tastes. the walls are decorated with historic photos not to be missed.

Pleasant lunch meal after a long morning bike ride. Staff was attentive. Food organic and fresh. I had a salad, my friend had hash and eggs. We shared an organic smoothie. Worth visiting again if we are in the area.

They are known for their breakfasts and rightfully so. There is a large variety and the servings are plentiful. The servers are always cheerful and willing to get you whatever you want. On the weekends, the place is packed and sometimes there is a long...More

Love this place. I always get the Cajon omelette our the fresh organic peach waffle (seasonal). Very busy and cash only, they do have an atm that is almost always working. In a pinch they have allowed more to pay by check. If you are...More
