Favorite Sebastopol and Surrounding Parts Food & Pampering Spots

By

I've been thinking about all the great little spots and holes in the walls we have around here and thought I'd help spread the word about these little gems.   Some of my favorites and in no particular order are:

Mimi's Ice Cream in downtown Sebastopol on the corner of Bodega Hwy (hwy 12) and Petaluma Ave (Hwy 116) across from what used to be the Chevy dealership.   If you are ever in town this is a must if you love good homemade natural ice cream.   And, if you are a chocoholic like myself as well as a caffeine addict then Mimi's Mudd is the flavor to try.   The smell of freshly baked waffle cones permeates the air.   Once you've been to Mimi's it WILL be a favorite.

Sushi Tozai also in Sebastopol on Healdsburg Ave and lucky for me it's right down the street from my office!!!   Some of the best Sushi I have ever eaten.   Always very fresh fish and an extremely large menu.   The Prawns Martini are to die for.   YUM!

Pasta Bella - Sebastopol for a large assortment of scrumptuous salads, sandwiches and pasta concoctions.   Always fresh and flavorful.   For the gluten free folks they serve gluten free pastas!   My favorite there is the grilled portabella mushroom sandwich I think it's called the E Germone.

Osmosis Enzyme Baths in beautiful Freestone Valley just west of Sebastopol on the way to Bodega Bay.   Time spent at Osmosis is heavenly and oh so worth it.   The japanese mediation gardens are spectacular as well.   Treat yourself to something special the next time you are out this way and book an enzyme bath and massage.  You will thank yourself.

And while in Freestone be sure to stop by The Wild Flower Brick Oven Bakery.   They have THE BEST freshly baked whole grain breads.   Weekends offer the gigantic (almost too big) sticky bun/cinnamon rolls that are killer.   My favorite breads there are the Fugase (sp?) and the Goat Flat.   I usually have to buy 2 in order to get 1 whole one home.  

If you like Clam Chowder then another must visit is the Spud Point Crab Co. They are across from the marina on your way out to Bodega Head.   It's a tiny little place with a small menu of white & red clam chowder, crab cakes, crab sandwiche, crab cocktail and hot dogs.    There might be more but I pretty much eat the clam chowders and the crab stuff.   Everything is home made with wonderful flavoring almost has a cajun flair to the recipes.   They have to be the nicest people in the world there as well.   One note, do NOT plan to go on a Wednesday as they are closed.   I did that once and was very disappointed.

Willowood in Graton is my final gem I'll talk about today.   It's the best, a must visit for an excellent line up of healthy and fresh local favorites.  

Let me know about your Favorite Sonoma County Spots.

Lynn, nice job. I must say that I agree 100% with all of your choices. I just spent the day going to artists homes and studios on the art trails program, 2 weekends of organized open stuio tours to local artists. It was amazing and wonderful to be invited into their worlds for an afternoon. We saw art, we saw friends and we saw streets and homes and studios that we never would have seen any other way. We also now have 3 more pieces of art and we just need to find a spot on the wall to hang them.

I love Sonoma County but I REALLY love west county.
