Prior to traveling to Sonoma, I had little expectation of anything other than drinking wine with family and friends. I didn’t plan this trip to a tee like I typically would. Heck, my mom and I even forgot about the whole rental car thing until the day before. We made reservations at Cafe La Haye and Foreign Cinema and that was the extent of our planning. And it all worked out. I should make note of that.
The day of the wedding, we walked through Sonoma Square and stumbled upon a trail and a few wineries to visit later in the day. By the time we cleaned up, we were ready for another meal. LaSalette was another restaurant that was recommended to us, so we headed that way. We had a wonderful and wonderfully light lunch of mussels, cucumber gazpacho, asparagus, and a few tapas (not pictured). In addition to having tasty fare, LaSalette was off the beaten path and had a bustling lunch crowd. I wouldn’t hesitate to visit again.
Fast forward to after the wedding, I woke up fairly well rested. It came in awfully handy to have my mom on call to pick me up from the wedding when I was at the point of feeling done. And because of that, we were able to check out of the hotel early and get a nice breakfast before the hour trek to San Fran.
We had a wayyyy heavier than anticipated breakfast at Community Cafe, where a few friends had eaten the day before. Truffled eggs with asparagus, mushrooms, and cheese on top of a hearty slice of bread and a NY strip breakfast burrito. Holy cow. We were in a total food coma until we arrived in San Fran, when we just so happened to be ready for our next meal.
