The scene is very white dreads and hacky sacks, but the tacos (esp smoked pork) make the grade. Excellent lunch situation. They also do beers and Revive kombucha on tap.

Lives up the name. Two Thai ladies whip up some pretty good stuff in a very tiny kitchen. There is seating (esp on the patio) but it's mostly a takeout place. Get the Tiny Rolls!

Best food in a 25-mile radius. In the tiny-cute town of Graton. Bocce. Perfect cocktails. Everything tastes so good. Last time we were there, a local fisherman came in and slapped a huge King salmon onto the bar, straight from his boat. TLDR: they care about food.

Not recommending this cafe, but rather, the weekly farmer's market. Held in the downtown square every Sunday from 10 - 1:30. Magical produce, great food stalls (esp the chefs who make the duck tacos), and even the occasional petting zoo. You will also get to see just how hippie our neighbors are. Expect patchouli, the odd juggler, a jam band, and/or hula hoopers. Bone broth and nut milks always on tap.

Do not be deterred by the terrible font on their sign. Go to this downtown ice cream shop on any hot summer evening, and you'll see half of town here. It's a screamin' multi-generational scene! And they make all their ice creams and cones by hand. Flavors change every week.

In all honesty, we used to call this place the saddest toy store in the world, because it didn't have any plastic, blinky lights or Barbies. But we've come to love the felted faeries, crystals, and hand-carved wood toys. A great place to make any kind of kiddo happy, especially those in the Waldorf discipline.

If you're in the Barlow, it's a good place to grab a thing or two. We buy their meat, provided by Victorian Farmstead. All organic, local, grass-fed happy cow/pig/poultry/lamb. Every once in awhile (I think on Fridays?) we've run into a big group of local musicians playing bluegrass near the deli counter. You can buy a beer or a sammie and listen. Pretty cool. Speaking of sammies, the French Maiden(?) is pretty delish.

Just one example of all the animals you can see all over the neighborhood. This is actually a schnauzer kennel and llama breeder! And it's less than a mile from our house. It's technically down a private lane, but we've walked down it a million times. And during the dead of summer, it's a PERFECT SPOT to pick wild blackberries.
