We stopped in Sonoma for a lunch break whilst on a coach tour to Jamieson Ranch Winery. Had burger and fries which was absolutely great, the best burger we had all trip.

Very nice store / restaurant that has a good selection of wines and cheeses, sandwiches, and touristy items. Lots of free samples of cheeses! They also offer wine and cheese pairings. While walking around the square, definitely stop here.

A wonderful selection, a friendly and helpful staff. Perfect place to stop after a day visiting wineries. Bring your bottle in and they'll help with the cheese that goes well with it.

Our bus tour stopped here for lunch. Our guide said everything was good but the trip-tip sandwich was a local favorite so that was what I ordered. Only problem was that no one told me it would take so much longer than all the other...More

I got a wine and cheese tasting off of Groupon. I expected just a little something to get our day started. Instead we got a real education. I enjoyed all of the wines and the cheeses. We loved talking with Trey. A great experience.

We stopped here today during a tour. Great food just that service was a little slow and a little disorganized where you have to order then pay somewhere else then come back and pay.

We were in the neighborhood for a family gathering and were looking to feed over 50 people relatively quickly for not a big dollar amount. They put together great sandwich platters with all the fixings for the whole group.

We have been going here for many years and they never disappoint! They used to make the cheese on site, but now have moved operations off site, which was disappointing, but now there's more room for more samples, gift shopping and enjoying their tasty menu...More

Huge selection! The grilled chicken paninis we ordered were outstanding! Plus, convenient location right on Sonoma Square.
