Dinner for Two at Cafe La Haye
Cafe La Haye is a "must-dine" in Sonoma for date night, or any occasion for that matter. It boasts some of the best food in wine country, along with a tightly curated wine-list. The dining area has an air of unfussy sophistication, with only about a dozen tables and an open two-level floor plan. The restaurant doubles as an art gallery, with beautiful pieces (all for sale) lining the walls. Getting a reservation can be challenging at times, so make sure to call ASAP to reserve a table for two!
