BRUNCH IS MY MOST FAVORITE MEAL OF THE WEEK.
I can justify a bit of a drive for brunch.
Brunch means "cheat day" and "day drinking" and drives through the valley.
Brunch is an event.
Agavé Mexican Restaurant & Tequila Bar
Breakfast burritos, bloody mary's, mimosas & micheladas.
1063 Vine St, Healdsburg, CA
A swanky spot with beautiful, amazing-tasting food and a lot of attitude. Get the goat cheese balls.
Award winning bread and bakery. Great omelettes, sandwiches and pastries. Consistently awesome quiche.
Downtown Bakery & Creamery**
Gorgeous homemade pastries, cakes, pies and breakfast/lunch items. Ice cream too. Have to make a pie? Bake some cookies? They'll sell you their homemade dough.
NOTE: This place is cash only. So bring lots because you'll want to buy everything.
Quail & Condor**
Decadent homemade pastries, toasts, sandwiches, breads and pies. Coffee drinks too!
In Wine Country
Willowood Market Café*
This place is a well-worth drive to the tiny town of Graton. It defines a "perfect weekend" for me if I get a chance to go. They have a polenta menu, phenomenal mimosas and they serve their lattes in a bowl. Need I say more? I always get either the Market Plate or the Open-faced Salmon Sandwich. Or try to get my husband to get one or the other so I can have both....
