petaluma sweets

Poking around Petaluma, I have a rave and a "good but not great" in the sweets department.

Petaluma Pie, which I found on this Board, is every bit as great as others said. Lovely counter staff and a brilliant rhubarb hand pie--wonderful crust, not too sweet, delectable. Wanted to order everything! I also liked the little Sonoma/Petaluma magnets on sale at the counter. Will be back!

Lala's Ice Cream Shop across the street was less of a hit. I was excited to see two seasonal flavors--nectarine and Petaluma strawberry. I got the Petaluma strawberry--which was fine, though not as intensely strawberry-ish as I'd hoped. A small complaint: the young server asked the usual: regular, sugar, waffle cone. I said sugar. I learned when she asked for more money than I'd put handed her that a sugar cone was 40 cents extra--hardly a big deal--a bit surprising as an extra and might have been good to mention in the first place, given that most places only charge extra for waffle.
