We loved this place. It was a quiet off season Sunday evening and we were lucky enough it be seated in the bar area which is cozy and unpretentious. The owner Judy is terrific and makes you feel as though you are visiting her home and not a guest at the restaurant. The food was delicious and the staff friendly and engaging. I would highly recommend on your visit to Monte Rio.

This was my second visit to the restaurant. The food is very well-prepared. The restaurant is small, maybe three tables and a counter outside and maybe 10 tables inside. We had the hamburger, mac and cheese (my favorite, with mushrooms), toasted baguette and a little gems salad. The truffle fries are excellent. If they don't come with your meal, I would order a side order - so worth it. Highly recommend.

I look forward to visiting for breakfast every trip I make a trip west! I dream of their salmon toast and their breakfast potatoes are addicting! If up in the North Bay, it is worth the ride as the portions are great and the food is amazing. Perfect for fueling up before heading to the coast, forest or anywhere else nearby.

Had two meals here. Day one had steak and eggs which were very good. My friend had a veggie omelette which she said had very little flavor. Service was not very good. Second day we had the waffle special - which looked delicious when we saw it at another table the day before. The eggs were fine. The chicken/apple sausage interesting. The waffle was large but dry and not good at all. The best thing both days were their breakfast potatoes...delicious! I believe our nice server was Mark. The woman who served coffee was less than friendly. There is both indoor and patio dining. One unisex restroom which often has a line so good idea not to wait until the last minute.

So, several years ago I was staying at the Applewood Inn in Guerneville and we happened into the Coffee Bazaar. The first thing you have to understand about me is that I DON'T DRINK COFFEE. But we wanted something to eat and the Mexican Mocha sounded intriguing. OH MY OH MY OH MY! After that morning, we went back every day for a Mexican Mocha. A mocha made with dark Mexican chocolate and a kick of pepper at the end! I had mine with foam instead of whipped cream, and it was just luscious!
SO . . . fast forward about 7 years, and here I am again! I brought 3 virgins with me, and they all LOVED the mocha as well! It did not disappoint!
The food there, was okay. I had a breakfast sandwich that had been pre-made and microwaved when I ordered it. My English muffin was soggy. But a couple in my group got fresh BLTs for breakfast, which looked amazing! Next time I'll know!
But there WILL be a next time! It's THAT good!

This bakery was recommended to us by friends.
Walking in the front door we were met by the great aromas of the pastries and coffee and smiles from the bakers and counter person.
What was even more impressive was watching them roll out the dough while we were picking out what we were going to have from the self service cabinet.
We would have liked to try everything but purchased the blueberry scones and coffee which were great.
We'll be back to try their other pastries as soon as possible.

beautiful old bank redone simple and stylistically.. great ice cream, and milkshakes. unusual flavors, perfectly churned. i know they offer other small fare, but i popped in to try a milkshake on a hot day......so my attention was directed there.

Be hungry- main courses come with antipasto, minestrone soup, garden salad and bread. If you come for lunch don't plan on another meal that night and if you come for dinner don't eat lunch. Pleasant outdoor eating area for the summer and fall. Two large indoor dining areas. Great old bar as well. Service is friendly and good

Good Food Made Fresh. Hearty breakfast and Lunches. Slow smoked BBQ.
We had breakfast here after spending the night next-door at Autocamp. It was a great recommendation! The outdoor patio was nicely heated on a cool morning, with, sounds of children's playing next door, beautiful flowers and humming birds. Service was great, coffee satisfying, and eggs and pancakes hit the spot.

Built in the late 1800's, the Blue Heron is a beautiful, rustic restored tavern. The redwood finished dinning room features beef, chicken, the seafood we're famous for and vegetarian dishes. In the tavern the full menu is served including hearty pub food, beer, local wines and liquor. In the summer barbecued oysters by 'What the Shuck' are served on the outdoor garden patio on Sundays, along with live music. We are a favorite restaurant in Sonoma for folks visiting the Russian River area.
The Blue Heron is a nice Tavern, with a small restaurant.
They have pretty good vegetarian burgers and make good
Long Island Ice tea, other then that their a good place to kick back listen to live local artists perform concerts while you relax drink and eat at the Blue.
