Boont Berry Farm Store 13981 Hwy. 128, Boonville, (707) 895-3576. M-Sat 10-6, Sun 12-6.
Decidedly uncutesy, this rustic little store instead has a cozy, old-time atmosphere that includes antique food coolers, old wood floors, and a front door that squeaks every time it is opened. Inventory includes locally grown organic produce, whole-grain breads, and homemade ice cream. A deli in a back alcove with seating serves items prepared in-house, including green chili enchiladas, pesto pizza, lasagna, a meatless loaf, and tofu with mashed potatoes. Most prepared food is vegan or vegetarian. I liked the roasted root salad (ask for it heated) and the generously sized black-bean burritos. Cookies, brownies, and flaky rugelach are described as “awesome,” and the peach-mango scones and vegan cupcakes “to die for.” On Fridays, you should definitely try the jalapeño cheese bread.
