Location: Healdsburg, CA
A few weekends ago my fiancé and I traveled to Healdsburg, CA, which is a short distance away from Sonoma in Wine Country to check out a potential wedding venue! AH! So exciting! One of my colleagues told me that before or after our venue tour, we had to make a stop at this wonderful brunch spot called THE SHED. We did, and it was a place I felt like was out of "It's Complicated" with Meryl Streep - it was amazing!
As soon as you walk into THE SHED, you'll likely be surprised. I was anticipating THE SHED to look more like a regular restaurant, but as soon as you walk in it almost looks like an indoor farmer's market and boutique grocery shop. Unfortunately, on this particular day it was pouring, so we had to suit up! In the photo below, you can see that there's this big beautiful island in the middle of the store that greets guests as soon as you enter the property.
Everything in here was boutique, and also expensive! Inside you can find kitchen utensils, jams, breads, cheeses, breads and so much more. Towards the back of the property is the restaurant that has big farm tables, and a wine and champagne bar where you can order brunch. One thing to note if you're ever looking to stop at THE SHED for brunch, you can only order alcohol at the bar behind the farm tables for brunch (that may come in handy for some!)
Because of the weather, I chose to cover my head with a cute floppy hat I've worn before in this post, my Lulu's pink jacket I've worn in this post, in addition to new Express faux leather leggings and some nice black boots that can almost double as rain boots. I also wore these cute little Whitney Eve gloves that came in my FabFitFun box - I've gotten so many compliments on them already!
I love farm fresh food to table restaurants, and I love that you can buy things here at THE SHED to bring with you to picnic outside or elsewhere near the area, as there are so many options everyone in your group will feel satisfied!
I have been kind of obsessed with my engagement ring ever since Safi asked me to be his wife on the 12th, and so of course I had to get a photo of my ring and my cute little Whitney Eve gloves before we ordered brunch. The menu thankfully was somewhat small which is great for people like me that have a hard time making decisions. Just wait until you scroll down and see what we ordered!
Safi ordered the most delicious looking hot chocolate in the WORLD, while I got a nonfat latte to accompany my brunch. We were starving (well, I was starving) so we ordered something to share ahead of our individual items.
Above, you'll see the most delicious roasted potatoes in the world, with tomato spread and basil. It was ABSOLUTELY incredible. I would recommend this 100%.
This was the toast I got. I'M SORRY. It had roasted mushrooms with arugula and olives and perfectly poached eggs.
My fiancé got this incredible buckwheat waffle with syrup and raspberry jam - I tried it and I can report that it was worth it. You won't regret it.
