Southern comfort food is hardly what comes to mind when thinking about the cuisine of California's Wine Country. Yet, that's exactly what you get at this unassuming diner along scenic Highway 121. Think grandma's recipes inspired by the local...

11 Central Ave, Sonoma, CA 95476, USA
There are a lot of good eating options in Sonoma, but not so many that don't come with some snobbery. El Molino is different: Bright blue and yellow tiled floors, an open kitchen, freshly made tortillas from stone-ground corn, and homey,...

141 Petaluma Blvd N, Petaluma, CA 94952, USA
We stopped at Della Fattoria on our way out to tour wineries in Healdsburg. The cafe is in historic downtown Petaluma, and the menu did not disappoint. The panzanella salad was filled with fresh local currants, asparagus, fennel, and homemade...

We weren't even planning to get ice cream on this particular afternoon, exploring Petaluma. But when we walked past the windows and saw the sweet, nostalgic decor at Lala's and two seats open at their 50's inspired soda fountain bar, we couldn't...
