Brunch: Girl and the Fig (Sonoma, CA)

I finally had a chance to explore wine country (about 1.5 hours from San Francisco) and I immediately thought, "why did I wait soo long to do this?!?"  We were headed to Coppola Winery but decided to veer off to try Girl and the Fig, the most adorable french cafe in Sonoma.  It was a little out of the way from the winery (40 miles to be exact!) but well worth the detour!

We yelp'd Girl and the Fig to see recommendations on what to order for brunch from fellow Yelpers and Stuffed French Toast and the Quiche Lorraine popped up many times.  So, we ordered both and ohmygosh...both were amazing!!!  The Stuffed Brioche French toast looked a bit heavy on the plate but once you took a bite, the Fromage Blanc stuffed inside just melted in your mouth!  It was covered in Huckleberry compote with meyer lemon which was to-die-for!  We also ordered the Quiche Lorraine and I picked out the ham which was conveniently positioned at the bottom of the quiche along the crust which made it easy to eat around it!  (Although, I did also pick around the crust because that was amazing too!)  The quiche was so fluffy and creamy, almost the texture of flan which was unlike any other quiche I've ever made (like my basic quiche recipe I posted before)

I highly recommend this place when you check out Sonoma.  Plus it's in the most picturesque town that almost feels like a movie set! Also, highly recommend making a reservation first!
