I love lunching here, especially when the weather cooperates with the outdoor seating. It's a small, intimate bistro and the food is always wonderful. From Quiche to Salad to Sandwiches and Pastries, you can't go wrong! Every time I introduce a friend/work associate to Water Street Bistro, it's a hit. I understand breakfast is great but I've never been here... More

At the recommendation from a local, my gal and I drove into town to have a cafe and pastry for breakfast and we ended up going back the next two mornings! A perfect blend of amazing pastry and the baristas are top notch. What a cup! Easy to get to and plan to sit outside, it's not as busy.

A friend and I often meet here for lunch. It is convenient and the food is always great and well priced. I usually will have either the smoked trout salad or the salad nicoise. My friend has either the smoked duck salad or a quiche. It is a neighborhood restaurant with my regulars. The owner and staff are friendly and... More

I have a very close friend in Petaluma, and I love to take her out for breakfast. My very favorite destination is the Water Street Bistro. The owner is a lovely lady and a Francophile, and her staff are very friendly and efficient. Everything is delicious, from the pecan waffle with fresh fruit to the homemade quiches and French pastries... More

This place seems like it's more of a bakery with some breakfast items than a diner or bistro so expect more baked goods type things than diner things. I loooooved my quiche of which they had 4 different to choose from and I think they change them up daily. Coffee was great, Lots of vegetarian options and the berry coffee... More

I love the interior decorating and local comfortable feel. It's not a large space but I like that noise does not seem to travel. Food is very good and prices are fair. Nice for a casual local meal.
