Sumbody Natural Cosmetics Store and Spa Treatments
118 N. Main St., Sebastopol
Treatments at this dreamy oasis happen in chic tent cabanas—and truly feel like a reprieve from the world. A ten-minute consultation allows the aesthetician to craft a whole protocol for you and to blend the purest seasonal ingredients right in front of you. After you’re slathered in a variety of pore-clearing masks, mineral-packed serums, and antioxidant-spiked creams, the heavenliness is topped off with a hand, neck, and shoulder massage. You emerge radiant beyond belief and profoundly rested.
143 W. Spain St., Sonoma
Located downtown Sonoma in Vallejo-Castañeda Adobe House, a mid-1800s historic landmark which the owners reinvented with the help of architect Ken Fulk, the space is stunning: equally eclectic and modern with Mexican influences.
452 1st St. E, Sonoma
Located in the heart of Sonoma's central plaza, this restaurant serves up Portuguese cuisine with a twist–with most dishes heavy on the olive oil, garlic, and fresh tomatoes. Chef Manuel Azevedo cooks classics from his native country, such as a traditional fish stew with a medley of clams, mussels, shrimp, sea bass, and scallops.
Harvest Moon Café
487 1st St. W, Sonoma
Husband and wife Nick and Jen, culinary institute alumni, offer up a seasonally changing menu in this small but mighty restaurant.
Artefact Design & Salvage
23570 Arnold Dr., Sonoma
A destination for in-the-know design enthusiasts.
Fremont Diner (Closed)
2698 Fremont Dr., Sonoma
Fremont Diner is a charmingly local spot where the menu focuses on old-fashioned comfort food—the fried chicken and waffles, fried chicken sandwich, and especially the homemade pies make for customers year-round. Kids will love the backyard chicken coop, where local-as-it-gets eggs are harvested daily for famous dishes like the deviled eggs and breakfast hash.
2300 Napa Rd., Sonoma
If there's such a thing as a hipster winery, Scribe Winery probably qualifies. Owned by young brothers and located in Sonoma, it's a small production vineyard with a decidedly unstuffy vibe—you'll sit at a picnic table or swing on a rope swing while you sample their rosé. There's a historic hacienda located on the property that the brothers are in the midst of restoring. It promises to be a fantastic tasting room (and an even better event venue), but until the project is finished, they're happily running their tastings on an outdoor hillside lovingly dubbed "the knoll."
