We weren’t plan to visit Sonoma town but we stopped here during our organized wine tour at Sonoma Valley. We had about two hours here and most of the people just walk around for a while and then go for lunch in one of the restaurants. Hopefully, there are many choices, all of them are located around the central square. We walked a bit at the square (pic 1), it was nice and relaxing, very green with many picnic tables so you can even have your lunch here if you want. We checked the buildings around, the Town Hall (pic 2) was the only one that seemed interesting till we saw an old church and realized that one of the old Missions of California was here. We didn’t go inside though because our bus driver told me earlier that we would visit a great free museum about Missiones later. There I learned that Sonoma Mission was the last one.

Then we visited the Cheese Factory where we tasted some nice cheese samples. We preferred to buy some chocolate candys instead of cheese and then we ate hamburgers at the backyard where they had meat on grill. We drunk our coffee at Baker+Café (pic 3) a nice small bakery that also have some nice sandwiches with calamata olives! The decoration was weird with spiders all over the place, probably because of the forthcoming Halloween.
