Fodor's Expert Review Pearl

$$ Petaluma Mediterranean Fodor's Choice
Regulars of this southern Petaluma "daytime café" with indoor and outdoor seating rave about its eastern Mediterranean–inflected cuisine—then immediately downplay their enthusiasm lest this 2018 arrival become more popular. The menu, divided into "smaller," "bigger," and "sweeter" options, changes often, but mainstays include buckwheat polenta, a lamb burger dripping with tzatziki (pickled fennel and yogurt sauce), and shakshuka (tomato-based stew with chickpeas, fava beans, and baked egg).
