Whenever we come to Sonoma we go here to get our picnic supplies for the square. Good food, reasonable prices and interesting selections of cheese.

We just wanted to grab a sandwich for lunch, but it turned into an adventure. The shop has lots going on with so many gourmet food items available in addition to the amazing sandwiches.

We stopped in Sonoma for a lunch break whilst on a coach tour to Jamieson Ranch Winery. Had burger and fries which was absolutely great, the best burger we had all trip.

Very nice store / restaurant that has a good selection of wines and cheeses, sandwiches, and touristy items. Lots of free samples of cheeses! They also offer wine and cheese pairings. While walking around the square, definitely stop here.

A wonderful selection, a friendly and helpful staff. Perfect place to stop after a day visiting wineries. Bring your bottle in and they'll help with the cheese that goes well with it.

I got a wine and cheese tasting off of Groupon. I expected just a little something to get our day started. Instead we got a real education. I enjoyed all of the wines and the cheeses. We loved talking with Trey. A great experience.
