Sonoma/Santa Rosa/Petaluma -- off the beaten path

Chowpatty | Mar 11, 200502:57 PM

We'll be in Sonoma for the film festival weekend, and many of the parties and receptions will be at the Girl and the Fig and other downtown Sonoma places. I'd like to show my boyfriend the area on a drive up Highway 12 and then down to Petaluma...any nice places to stop for lunch or drinks or dinner along the way? I'm also interested in cheesemakers or other interesting artisanal foods. We'll be pretty wined out from the festival, so wine won't be the focus of the drive. Funky, old-fashioned or ethnic preferred over pricey, fancy and touristy. Thanks!
