Santa Rosa lunch spots?

cortez Sep 23, 2009 11:47 AM

Have to go to Santa Rosa this Friday for business-related stuff. Will be open around the lunch hour.

Any chowhound recommendations for fun, delicious lunch spots? Very flexible on type of cuisine and price point.

Thanks for your help.

    I think I'm a little late but you cannot beat Cloe's French Cafe. http://www.chloesco.com/cafe.htm

    Always a great lunch - the soups are to die for, salads always fresh and portions plentiful. Great, great spot. I'd eat there every day if I could.

        First thing I thought of when I saw the heading was Jhanthong Banbua. Really good Thai with a large and varied menu. The next one I thought of was La Palapa, on Lewis. Their molcajete is one of the best things I've ever eaten.
