There’s so much to love about the Italian-vibed, retro charm at Cafe Scooteria that it’s hard to know where to begin. An honest-to-goodness working bike shop specializing in vintage scooters and custom rigs, they also serve traditional, Italian style cappuccinos and lattes made exclusively of local ingredients, and some hearty breakfast menu items to boot.
What not to miss: Although technically a drive-through shop, there’s plenty of parking and cozy seating to sip your coffee and imagine yourself cruising the alleyways of an Italian village on one of the many displayed scooters. Pull up a chair and stay awhile.
Sunflower Caffe keeps it real, organic and simple. Their menu changes seasonally to ensure the best produce throughout the year. This year Sunflower was awarded the Sonoma Valley People’s Choice Award for best cafe/coffee shop, and they always have options for any type of eater; whether you are vegetarian or gluten-free they've got you covered.
What not to miss: The Sunflower Caffe only uses local and organic produce. Their eggs come from a farm just 5 miles away, source milk from a local dairy, and their sea salt is from right here in San Francisco Bay (literally!). Enjoy your dining experience at The Sunflower Caffe while soaking up the sun and people watching on their charming outdoor patio.
