Sonoma , CA , United States

For casual eats:

  • Hopmunk Tavern- Just a block away. Extremely fun, outdoor seating, live music.  Food is decent.  Get the grilled cheese and tomato soup!   Large microbrew selection.
  • Maya Mexican Restaurant- two blocks away, right on the southeast corner of the square.  Slightly fancy, but still casual and not upscale.  Great chips and salsa.
  • Mary's Pizza Shack or The Red Grape are your best bets for pizza.  Sonoma isn't known for it's pizza, though!  I've heard great things about Kashaya's, but haven't been there.  Try it and let me know!
  • The Freemont Diner is our favorite place for breakfast.  Also love the Sunflower Cafe and the Breakaway Cafe is not flashy but is tasty.


For a nice meal out:

  • The Girl and the Fig - awesome place for good food and wine.  Nice sitting area with couches while you wait, and a big bar area, too.  This is one of our favorites for a nice night out.  On the northwest corner of the square, but still walkable.  
  • Carneros Bistro and Wine Bar - located south on Broadway at the Lodge at Sonoma, this is a good place for a nice date.  Take a walk around the lobby and grounds at the Lodge after dinner.
  • Saddles Steakhouse at MacArthur Place -  there's a steakhouse a block away and it's decent. What more do you want?


For fun:

  • Take a walk down to MacArthur Place and stroll around the grounds of the hotel.  There's a chess garden there with life-size chess pieces.

  • Grab our bocce balls and head to the bocce courts just north of the town square (behind the Sonoma Cheese Factory, beyond the parking lot).  Stop and grab some cheese or sandwiches along the way!

  • Take the kids to Traintown!

  • There are two playgrounds in the center of the square right behind city hall.  Bring some bread to feed the ducks!
