“Della Attoria Café is located in the old US Bakery building (circa 1860) in downtown Petaluma. The aromas of freshly baked pastries and breads have continuously filled the space for over 150 years. Visit this spacious and meticulously decorated cafe and enjoy delicious, wholesome food, beautifully prepared and presented. In addition to daily fresh bread and pastries, poached ranch eggs on Della toast jumpstarts a day like almost nothing else.”

“Since the Tea Room Café opened its doors over 15 years ago, it has been a Petaluma favorite for breakfast, lunch and Sunday brunch. Serving up bountiful breakfasts and diverse lunch fare, the Tea Room Café also features its very own in-house bakery, turning out a wide array of seasonal sweets in addition to signature favorites. Open six days a week, the Tea Room Café features ongoing exhibits by local painters, printmakers and photographers (in addition to a collection of crows and a larger-than-life cow), adding an artistic touch to the café’s lively atmosphere.”

“Aqus is hard to classify. It's a coffee shop, a restaurant, a jazz club, a bar and a performance venue. Owner John Crowley hails from Ireland and set out to create an Irish pub experience in Petaluma. He has succeeded in developing a gem of a community resource. It's a great place to hang out - Petaluma's shared living room, if you will. Go there anytime and strike up a conversation.”
