An Adventure in Healdsburg

Jimtown Store, Alexander Valley

Jimtown Store (www.jimtown.com), found nestled in the vineyards of the Alexander Valley was the perfect jumping off point for a morning spent in Healdsburg. We started off with a bacon/egg sandwich, a dried sour cherry scone with strawberry/rhubard jam, and an apple juice with a laaarge cup of coffee. IMG_0696 Breakfast was accompanied by my fave local newspaper, The Press Democrat. It was a most wonderful start to a  Sunday morning. We headed back into town after breakfast and kicked around the charming Healdsburg Square. With an eclectic mix of antique and cooking stores, Michelin caliber restaurants, as well cool clothing stores this little burg has something for everyone.

There is so much to do in this tiny picturesque square 20 minutes north of Santa Rosa in the Sonoma County wine country. SoCo is Napa County’s less trendy, but equally meritable agricultural, haute cuisine,  cousin. Walk into any restaurant after perusing Levin Books, Rete clothing store, or Papitre Stationers and you will have a fabulous meal. Especially lovely are Taqueria El Sombrero for authentic mexican food, the Oakville Grocer for wood-fired pizza/picnic fixings, or Charlie Palmer’s Dry Creek Kitchen which transcends the sublime…
