There is outdoor seating, perfect for summer, the inside has upstairs and ground floor seating. It's family run, the service is great, and the menu is reasonably priced. Parking is not usually a problem along Reichart Avenue and close by Sweetster Avenue or Grant Avenue.




Thursday afternoon, August 24, 2017


Thanks to members Roberta Dixon and Jim Duckworth, our Volunteer Appreciation event will be a Wine and Cheese Tasting party held on the grounds of their lovely home.


Recently, Roberta told us:  We have asked our longtime friend Greg Berruto to lead our wine tasting event. Greg has been working in the wine industry in Sonoma for the past 15 years. He is a great wine educator, enjoys helping people learn about wines and is looking forward to making the party a fun experience for all our terrific volunteers.”


Novato Village needs a Volunteer Coordinator! If you’re interested in finding out more about what's involved, please contact Jean Gunn at  We hear it all the time from members --- our volunteers are amazing people --- and we want to keep that volunteer connection strong.
