A wonderfully warm and sunny day, Sunday found Trevor and I wanting to eat out of doors. Providentially we were out in Sonoma and remembered a cafe that a friend of ours had recommended. The Sunflower Cafe, located in the Sonoma Square (right along with the Basque Boulangerie), offers a light and inexpensive menu to the local by-passers. Although the indoor seating was quaint enough, we walked through to the patio area and found an oasis of lush greenery and trickling fountains.

A bit disappointed to find that they were out of their duck sandwich, I reluctantly chose an alternative poultry sandwich. Yet, with the grilled chicken before me, dressed in a citrus and cilantro salsa, I knew I would have little to complain about. Trevor proclaimed his roast beef with melted cheese on focaccia the best he’d ever had (and I was able to weasel a bite out of him for posterity’s sake). If I was to do it over again, I would ask for my sandwich on the same. The current bun it was served on was far too much bread to meat ratio. To top it off, Trevor and I split a lemon bar that was clearly freshly made.

A truly genuine place to enjoy and soak up the sun.
