Lunch in the City - Coqueta

Conqueta - Menu
Mijo and I went to Coqueta the other week for lunch. It was a beautiful day to be next to the water and Mijo has not been to Coqueta so I thought those are perfect excuses.

It has been two years since the last time I dined there. Still the same Coqueta goodness, same friendly service, same great atmosphere for dining. One of my favorites!

Musical in the City - Beautiful: The Carol King Musical

Beautiful - Orpheum Theatre bw
Beautiful: The Carol King Musical is finally in town till September 16. We were both free one week night last week and Mijo got tickets so we went.

I haven't seen Carol King in concert but going to see the musical made it feel like it and more. Mijo and I totally enjoyed the show.

Everyday Coffee in the City - Guatemala Antigua Dark by Peerless Coffee and Tea

Everyday Coffee - Peerless Guatemala Antigua Dark
We opened one of the bags of coffee we brought home with us from our trip to Peerless Coffee and Tea a few weeks ago. It is great drank alone or paired with food.

We paired them with both savory breakfasts and sweet snacks and the coffee tasted so good. We really loved this medium roast coffee.

Farm in Sonoma - Kozlowski Farms

Kozlowski Farms - Sign
We saw the Kozlowski Farms sign from the highway on our way to Joseph Jewell Winery. We didn't have plans to go to Kozlowski Farms but we ended up going there later that afternoon.

I am glad we decided to stop by Kozlowski Farms for a quick coffee and applie tart. We even brought a whole pie to take home with us. That's how we loved it!

Cafe in Oakland - Peerless Coffee and Tea

Peerless Coffee - Cafe bw
We ventured across the San Francisco Bay to visit a coffee shop. We've had their coffee at a couple of our favorite breakfast places in the city and it was great to finally get to their store in Oakland.

It did not disappoint because they have lots of good coffee to choose from and the service was friendly.  We loved going to Peerless Coffee and Tea.

Lunch in Sonoma - Backyard

Backyard - Sign
During our wonderful time sampling tasty wines at Joseph Jewell, our wine educator Andy mentioned that a nearby restaurant is great for lunch.  That place is called Backyard.

Mijo and I went there after our wine tasting. We love the food, the service and the setting. It really felt like we were dining at our backyard. We love it!

Wine tasting in Sonoma - Joseph Jewell

Joseph Jewell Winery - Wine tasting signs
Mijo and I were in Sonoma County to shop for a couple of bottles of Pinot Noirs.  Where else to find great tasting Pinots other than the Russian River Valley area of Sonoma.

We went to Joseph Jewell to wine taste. We love their wines. Andy, our wine educator, was very knowledgeable and all around nice guy. Thanks guys!
