Moon Over My Macaroon
By Courtney Cochran
Travelers looking for a quick fix of the sugar or caffeine variety need look no further than El Dorado Kitchen’s adorable new mini-me, Kitchenette. Little sister to the El Dorado Hotel’s award-winning restaurant, the deli-style eatery and bakery occupies prime real estate at the northeast corner of the hotel, which sits on Sonoma’s historic town plaza.
Open since July, Kitchenette serves to-die-for baked goods (made fresh every morning, natch), soft-serve ice cream, and a small selection of salads and sandwiches.
Nosh inside the airy, well-lit space that overlooks the plaza or take your grub to go. Options in the libation category include a bevy of coffee drinks brewed from La Coppa beans and a delightful selection of domestic and imported wines, many in handy half-bottle sizes that are perfect for impromptu lunches in the plaza (where you can drink daily ‘til sundown).
