A great excursion

  • Fremont fare: Fried chicken on a sweet waffle, cheesy grits and salted caramel milkshakes — authentic “farm-direct” food is having its heyday, and Sonoma’s Fremont Diner is at the forefront. The “backyard eggs” really come from the backyard (there’s a giant chicken coop out back) and ingredients are sourced locally. Picnic tables (tented in winter) provide ample outdoor seating surrounded by a rolling vineyard. [Visit WeekendSherpa.com to find out more about getting outdoors in Northern California]
