Hunk of Meat Monday: Fremont Diner is dishin’ in Sonoma

Have you ever had a life changing breakfast? I recently did, and felt I had to share the incredible hunk of meat I had for breakfast at a random hole in the wall with you all. I feel as if my most recent trip to Napa and Sonoma  had big expectations for the wine, but I think the breakfast I had at the Fremont Diner in Sonoma will be one that I will dream about for years to come.

But, let’s start at the beginning. The Fremont Diner is a dive. You wouldn’t notice the little dump joint if you weren’t looking for it.


Luckily there is a big diner sign that gets your attention.

When you go it you are quickly drawn to the counter where you can watch the cooks working their magic.

But, on a cool summer morning, we were drawn to the picnic tables outside.

Besides the weather, the view wasn’t bad from our seats outside.

Of course after coffee was quickly ordered it was onto the choice of picking what to order for breakfast.

We were so excited to see some southern specialties on the menu. Can you tell I was drawn to the Chicken & Waffle. But, we couldn’t pass up a little something else.

Cheesy grits for the table. And boy did they not disappoint.

So, the next time you are in California and out in Napa or Sonoma be sure to stop by the Fremont Diner. You will not be disappointed.

    I just saw this place in Sunset Magazine as one of the top 41 road food spots in the West. I'm pretty sure with a view like that they could serve up just about anything. Fun! Thanks for sharing your trip. Napa is a dream destination for me. This is getting pinned. Thanks, Leah!

    I love the color of the picnic tables! I wonder if hubby would let me paint ours? And I have seen the waffles and chicken combo on Diners, Drive ins, and Dives before. Definitely sounds interesting but delicious!

    I come by today to bring Sour Cream Swiss Steak. This has a slightly sweet sauce/gravy that kids seem to like. Nice, inexpensive dish made with round steak. Thanks for hosting. There are wonderful main dish ideas at your parties.
