Sonoma - how to fit it all in?

SanJoseHound | Apr 14, 2011 06:26 PM

Last minute Easter weekend trip to Sonoma. My husband and I are staying at the Fairmont. However we plan to drive up on Saturday morning and hit the Russian River Valley area. Where can we stop for a quick pastry and coffee (not a sit-down breakfast) on the way from San Jose? Then on to Merry Edwards, Lynmar, Dutton Goldfield and maybe one more? Joseph Swan/Siduri/other? We also need a lunch suggestion in this area. Barndiva looks interesting. Lighter fare would be nice. Must make it back by 6pm for reservation at Sante.

For Easter we're picking up my aunt in Napa and going to brunch at Brix, but we have nothing planned for the rest of the day.

On Monday: GunBun and Buena Vista. If I should swap out, let me know.

How can I fit in Fremont Diner (husband LOVES fried chicken) and El Molino Central? If one of them is open for Easter dinner then we'll be in luck. We can have lunch at the other on Monday.

Sorry my post is so disjointed. As always, thanks in advance for your advice and feedback.
