It is closed. The restaurant has been closed for a few months. The location is closed. The restaurant is closed and has been for a few months. It was overpriced and didn't find a market for such high priced breakfast/lunch food.

We used to love going to Big 3 for breakfast, however last weekend, a group of friends and I walked down to grab a quick bite only to find signs stating that this location is no longer serving breakfast and/or lunch.

This very spacious and airy location, on the property of the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn offers a variety of delicious breakfast entrees and is sure to please all types of appetites. That said, it comes at a cost. The special "scramble" of the day (ham, avocado, peppers and cheese) was $18. I opted for the Dungeness crab Benedict (yum!) at... More

After several visits here, I am always happy with the food (taste, quality, appearance, choices, portions)... but I must admit it's a little pricey. And although it's clean and professionally run, it's not the most relaxing ambience (starring out the windows at the traffic zooming by). Still I go here because I'm there to eat!!

We both had the lemon cottage cheese pancakes. We added smoked bacon and chicken and apple sausage as sides. Yes, the pancakes do have cottage cheese in the batter; it makes for an interesting texture and great flavor. The bacon was good (I'll never say the bacon wasn't good!) as were the sausage links. Very nice service, our wait person... More

A concierge told me to have the lemon-ricotta pancakes and I did .... 3 mornings in a row! The breakfast menu is varied and we were all satisfied with our choices each time we dined there.

My husband and I ate breakfast here both mornings of our stay. At both visits I ordered the Cottage Cheese and Lemon pancakes. They were to die for!!! Ah-mazing! My husband chose to try two different options and love both of his. I was so busy eating my delicious pancakes that I didn't even pay attention to what he ordered.... More

The Big 3 is the Fairmont's breakfast and lunch place. Although the food was very good, the price was ridiculous. Plan to spend $25 for breakfast. Coffee was just ok.

The food here is quite good. It is part of Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn hotel, but in a different building on the main road. The space is huge, really too huge and potentially grand for a restaurant of this kind. Unless it was very crowded and bustling - but it isn't.

Great breakfast nice service! Part of the Fairmont Resort.We tried the Huevos Rancheros and they were very good! The second try was also just as good! WE had the California scramble and the Spinach and mushroom omelet! This is a great spot for a delicious breakfast and prompt, friendly service!
