We loved the Fig Cafe. The vibe is hip, casual, and friendly. Nice decor. I had the steak frites; the beef was melt-in-your-mouth tender while still being well done as ordered. It came with blue cheese butter and thin, crispy fries with a side of...More

We walked to this small but charming restaurant from our hotel. I had the Fig and Arugula Salad (the fig is dried, which is what I prefer over fresh) and the combination of the chevre, pecans and vinaigrette was fabulous, and a good sized portion;...More

Since the fire, they serve prix fixed meals. Which on our night was delicious. There were two choices so one had the pallea and the other the duck. Both great with a marvelous dessert! Plus they do not charge a corkage fee.

In ‘downtown’ Glen Ellen. Lively atmosphere, very pleasant and professional service. We shared a very flavorful fig and arugula salad, then a quite tasty thin crust bacon pizza. The Grenache wine was a bit disappointing, but overall, a most pleasant meal on a busy Saturday...More
