Traveling to Sonoma with Sadie & Daisy: Part Two
Welcome to the second blog post on my travel to Sonoma. If you missed part one, check it out here!
Sonoma not only has great wine but also great places to eat! So we picked a few places to make sure to visit and we went on our own tasting tour of the region.
Our first night in Sonoma, we went to LaSalette, just off the Sonoma Plaza. This restaurant features new Portuguese cuisine with fresh local in-season produce. This was an incredible first meal out in Sonoma. Make sure to save room for one of their desserts. I recommend eating out on the terrace in good weather. This is one place I will be sure to eat if I ever get back to Sonoma.
Sonoma Creek Inn was the perfect home base for our three nights in Sonoma. It is very clean, well decorated and about 3 miles from Sonoma Town Square. This is a more affordable option for staying in Sonoma wine country and I really prefer this to a chain, run of the mill hotel. Another plus for this place is that there a cute diner with a local feel less than a two-minute walk from the Inn, called the Creekside Cafe.
We are always on the lookout for a good coffee shop when we are exploring new places and Sonoma delivered! Cafe Scooteria has a unique coffee drive-through that is a must-see. Coffee and pastries are served from a cart outside a vintage scooter garage with an adorable outdoor seating area.
Sunflower Cafe seems to be the place to eat breakfast in Sonoma or at least on the weekend. There was a line out the door both days we went but the line moved quickly and the wait was worth it. They use local, sustainable, organic, and fresh ingredients and the food looks and tastes like it! Make sure to check out the beautiful garden seating outback on a nice day.After all this food, if you are looking for some physical activity you can check out Sonoma Overlook Trail for a quick hike with a great view of Sonoma!
