The Community Cafe definitely has that laid back ambiance - not a place if you're in hurry as the food service can be slow. That said, it's worth the wait. Some unusual dishes here like walnut cinnamon French toast and butternut, tofu and kale hash, as well as interesting twists on the traditional e.g. their crispy chicken confit eggs benedict... More

My wife and I spent a week touring northern California's wine country. This was our day to tour the Napa Valley and we decided to breakfast in Sonoma before heading up the Silverado Trail. After some research, we opted for the Community Café for breakfast. Several reviews have suggested that it may be a little hard to find for first... More

They say right up front here: our food is individually prepared and may take 30 minutes to serve you. That is how long we waited for our food but it was very good indeed. The cinnamon walnut bread french toast is extraordinary. Wow! Don't like the way lots of places here do business - we stand in line to give... More

Title says it all. Good food good atmosphere. It's a place frequented by locals, the staff call patrons by name but are inclusive enough for "out of towners".

We saw the Yelp reviews on this place about it being kind of a hidden gem, so we made a plan to eat here for breakfast after staying at the Fairmont. OMG, the food was SO GOOD! We had a truffled egg thing that could have used less bread, but we ate around that, and then this french toast cinnamon... More

I've been here twice now and both times have enjoyed good, but not great, food. I say 'not great' because when I pay over $12 for what is essentially a couple of eggs between two pieces of bread, I expect a close-my eyes-and-moan experience. I get that it's Sonoma and one should expect to pay for the pleasure of dining... More

Decent food, but a little pricey for what you get. It was good, just not amazing. It's self-order at the counter as you walk in, which is almost a good idea, but hard to tip the wait staff before they do anything for you. They were actually very good - both the guys who brought us stuff and bussed our... More

Went here for brunch with family and we all enjoyed the food. I ordered the cinnamon walnut french toast, which was amazing! The homestyle potatoes were also delicious with lots of flavor and spices. The overall service was great - quick, helpful, and friendly. The atmosphere is very welcoming with artwork on the walls and open space with lots of... More

I live here and it's still a little hard to find even though it's on the main drag. Great breakfasts and lunches. Lots of food, perhaps enough to share if you're not that hungry.

We had Sunday breakfast at this cafe and were very happy with the quality of the food and the atmosphere of the place. There are vegetarian, vegan and gluten free dishes available, and the breakfast dishes ran from $10 to $14 each. Tea is served in a tall glass, and the brewed coffee has free refills. There were thermoses for... More
