We stopped in to break up our drive and the food was delicious. I felt like the hostess intentionally left me standing in the doorway for 10 minutes so I would miss Happy Hour. That said, the food was delicious and the atmosphere is terrific.

Amazing! I have never seen a kitchen where the entire staff was smiling. I remarked to the sous chef about all the smiles andhecpeplued " when you know you are mKing good food and pleasing people it is very easy to smile." What a great attitude- and yes the food and service too were indeed incredible.

My wife absolutely loves this place. Maybe it reminds her of her city roots, but it really is a nice place to eat at. There will be a wait if your doing breakfast. The staff does the best they can in a small environment, so be kind to them. Overall it's clean. It's bright and enjoyable. Go check it out.... More

A local chef friend of mine recommended that I try The Spinster Sisters when I was in Santa Rosa for a conference. I tried it with a group of colleagues on a Friday night and it was beyond all expectations. The food was farm to table, creative, and delicious. Every dish was exquisite and different. The service was warm and... More

Ambiance is great for brunch but pretty pricey. Small menu. The coffee is good and strong. Waffles are great, salad is great. Service is good. I like to come here with a friend or two but can get loud if there are a lot of people.

I have been wanting to try this restaurant for months so after dropping the kids off at school thought I would treat my husband and I to a yummy breakfast. Man what a complete disappointment. I asked the waitress what she would recommend for someone who does not eat meat and she responded I don't really eat breakfast? Really?? So... More

This is our favorite go-to place for dinner on the spur of the moment. Although they are well known for their brunch menu, we have never been for brunch. Unless you are in this out-of-the-way neighborhood for the small collection of art galleries on the next block, you would likely only be here if Spinster Sisters is your destination. The... More

With a great neighborhood location, we weren't surprised to see the crowd. Nevertheless, we were able to get 3 seats at the counter right away. We each had a different dish. I had the lox & bagel; my husband the tostada; and my dad the Benedict. With all the healthy choices, my dad was skeptical... lol! But he said he... More

Walking in, we immediately felt welcomed. The servers were friendly and nice. The food was so good and hot. My espresso was excellent. The Apple Fritters seemed like they had just been made.

Had lunch 2 years ago and left with a bad impression. Staffs were running around without knowing what to do. 3 of the dishes ordered required absolutely no cooking but took them over 25 minutes. Loud and disorganized. Returned this evening for dinner. Reception and service were better. Food was acceptable, but not restaurant quality. The level of noise would... More
