A few of Sonoma County and Wine Country’s favorite breakfast spots…
Santa Rosa
Jeffrey’s Hillside Cafe: Former John Ash & Co. chef does Wine Country dining for breakfast — with some Southern hints. Lemon blintzes, chicken fried steak, sticky bun french toast. MORE

Dierk’s Parkside :
A significant local chef turns his attention to breakfast, brunch and lunch, bringing his culinary chops and Slow Food ideals to the table. There’s always a line on weekends. Fresh donuts, poached egg salad, duck confit, Country Benedict. MORE

Carlos Country Kitchen
: It’s nothing fancy, but there’s some seriously good grub here, served up in mega portions. Biscuits and gravy, pancakes, scrambled eggs, Huevos rancheros.
Cookhouse: Tucked far out of focus, this tiny cafe is breakfast gold. Nothin’ fancy, but top-notch biscuits and gravy.
Bruno’s on Fourth: Great eats from a casual, neighborhood restaurant. Chef Rick Bruno is a solid local chef, and does breakfast Sonoma Style. Biscuits and gravy, Dungeness Crab Benedict, homefries.
Hank’s Creekside: Local mom and pop featured on Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. Don’t expect fancy, but do expect long weekend lines and terrific pancakes. Plus, a nice view of the creek, if you’re lucky enough to get a window seat.
Crepevine: Bay Area creperie opened in Santa Rosa featuring both sweet and savory crepes, omelets, salads, sandwiches. Open breakfast, lunch and dinner.
