Mr. Hagen is a really talented piano tuner. I have used him for over a year since moving to Sonoma and he has been able to really keep my piano in shape. He not only tunes the piano but also gives it a great inside cleaning. Since I live in a country setting we get a lot of dust in the house and he has been able to clean the piano insides while he is also tuning it. His prices are very reasonable and I have recommended him to several friends. I also like the fact that he is very very prompt and keeps his appointments. That would seem to be a small thing however it is harder to find quality people that can do the basics very well.
This is a good independent bookstore in the town of Sonoma. I was very happy to find it and it is very close to the Plaza so you can pick up a book and read it in the plaza. They have a great selection of magazines and an awesome childrens book section. The staff is great and they really enjoy helping the customers find what you are looking for.
This is a great copy store they do the standard copying services and they also do the large print (blueprints, maps etc.) copying. I have used them for years and i have been pleased with their service the prices are very competitive and the quality is much higher than the big name chains. My last job was a some what complicated set of business cards (three color) they turned it around and it was really impressive.
This is a great bank. they have very nice staff and very competitive rates for investments. the CD's and money market rates often time beat the bigger national banks. I have always been impressed with the staff and their knowledge of the banking industry. Often times at the larger banks the tellers just want to upgrade you to a more expensive package this bank want to help and it shows.
This is the place where the contractor come and shop. It's a terrific family run business and you can be guaranteed that they have what you are looking for. The owner knows just about everything there is to know about the Door business. I have outfitted three houses with this firm and have never had problem. The prices are great and the quality and craftsmanship is outstanding!
This is the "other" and much better cheese store in the town of Sonoma. We have been going to this store for at least 20+ years and it has got to be one of the best cheese makers in the state. The best is the classic dry Monterey cheese and it has won a ton of awards. I also like the cheddar. We love this store and always try to visit it at least once a month!
Although this is on the plaza and you would think tourist trap this restaurants is pretty good. You can leave here for around $40.00/ person (w/drinks) and you are pretty full. The quality of the food is good and the ingredients are fresh. On some days it can be very crowed with tourists, however that does not take away from the excellent food and service.
This is a really good library for a small town. They have a wide selection of books and the staff is really helpful. What I especially like is the broad range of topics they have seminars on. The last one was about olive growing in Sonoma they had some great speakers and it was very informative. I would highly recommend this library if you live in Sonoma it's more that just books!
Not quite the traditional Hawaiian BBQ but it is overall a good experience. They do wonders with pork and have many tasty side dishes such as macaroni salad, potato salad and some very good cole slaw. I was quite full on only $10.00 the atmosphere is great. would like to see a bit more Hawaiian classics (more roast pork) but it's a very good place.
This place is great Angelo makes his own sausages and has a wonderful deli. He also has another location that you can get farm fresh meat. the sausages he makes are really good and they have all the traditional styles as well as some not so traditional. So far i have gotten the sausages and some excellent cuts of meat all at reasonable prices. The sausages are great on the barbeque.
