Cool Finds : Fremont Diner
If you ever find yourself driving through Sonoma make sure you stop at the Fremont Diner. (2698 Fremont Drive). What use to be the old "Babes" is now a new hip burger & shake establishment that got it all right. From the vintage candy selection down to the chef side bar seating every last detail is obviously well thought out. This place doesn't just have the look down...the food was delicious. Of course my favorite was the chocolate shake I had a "sip" of...but the made to order ice cream sandwich with either chocolate or vanilla ice cream didn't suck either! They do offer real food as well, breakfast treats from griddle cakes to wild shrimp & grits as well as many choices for lunch; including the fremont burger, daily seasonal salad, or one of my favs macaroni & cheese! Their moto is "farm direct" so everything is seasonal, local & fresh.
I would even make the hour trek drive out there to show the place off to an out-of-towner; it's that cute! But don't just take our word for it...
