Biscuits with Sausage Gravy @ Fremont Diner, Sonoma Carneros

There’s not much of a breakfast culture here in the Napa Valley, at least compared to the dinner scene. I think that mornings tend to be reserved for sleeping it off from the night before, or else having a little “hair of the dog” at a Napa Valley tasting room at 10am. Bouchon Bakery does a brisk morning business, of course, but I don’t consider that breakfast. For one, there’s no bacon at Bouchon Bakery, and eggs are merely an ingredient, not a main course. But there is breakfast out there, and I’m going to cover all of the best options this summer. As an early teaser, I submit the biscuits and sausage gravy from the Fremont Diner in Sonoma Carneros, which also uses its terrific cream biscuit recipe for a few other applications, including the biscuit with country ham option. This is breakfast.

  • Thanks for the tip that Fremont diner has some Southern-style food! I’m sure they put their California touch on it and it don’t taste like my momma’s, but I’ll give it a try. I’ve been meaning to check that place out!

    They also have shrimp and grits, plus all kinds of pancake and waffle options.

    their beef hash is awesome, and I can’t resist a vanilla milkshake for breakfast, too!

    I was about to order the shrimp and grits this morning when I remembered your recommendation for the hash. Wow. That was a great dish! I’m still thinking about it 12 hours later.
