The Redwood Cafe in Cotati, California

Blairworks is an unabashedly proud supporter of the Redwood Cafe in Cotati, California. If you live in Sonoma County, or are passing through the area looking for a great meal and a nice cup of coffee, it is hard to do better.

Located right on Old Redwood Highway (map) in Downtown Cotati, the Redwood Cafe has a large seating area and a diverse menu of tasty meals, including vegetarian and heart-healthy specialties.

It’s a very popular local destination for breakfast, with something on the menu to quell most appetites. They serve breakfast until 3pm, which is great for people who wake up late after doing the “Cotati crawl” down the row of Cotati’s downtown nightspots the night before.

To refresh in the summer, they have many wonderful smoothies – Orange Sunshine is a great, classic choice. They also offer freshly squeezed juices and iced espresso drinks.

No problem bringing your laptop in to check email – they have free WiFi – making it a great pit stop if you are traveling to or from San Francisco along Highway 101.

Mark particularly recommends the Turkey and Jalapeño Jack sandwich -- and of course the coffee.
