Arrigoni Omelette Board

My brother Ned builds guitars and was in the area for the Healdsburg guitar show yesterday. I was going to be in Santa Rosa looking at a nice Victorian fixer later, so it made sense to meet downtown. I was looking for an excuse to try a breakfast place in Santa Rosa that was new to me (in business since 1937…), so we met at Arrigoni’s Cafe and had breakfast in their open-to-the-street dining area. I had the house special Arrigoni omelette with Italian sausage, zucchini, scallion and parmesan topped with Mozzarella. Excellent. Ned had a California omelete with avocado, but his real treat was a great piece of baklava that came all the way from Detroit. According to Raja Naber, the friendly owner of Arrgonis, this shredded filo dessert is the best example of baklava in America. I couldn’t disagree.

Outdoor seating area at Arrigoni’s CafeArrigonis has a serving counter where you place your order before grabbing a table. You get your coffee and espresso drinks at the counter and your food is brought to you when it’s ready. Our waitress was efficient and friendly with the easy manner that makes Sonoma County dining so comfortable. Overall I was very pleased with my breakfast and am happy to recommend this long time Santa Rosa favorite to everyone.
