We made an impromptu stop at Farmstead to meet someone for a drink. We ended up having more food and drink than we anticipated, mostly because it was quite tasty.
The quick run-down of food consumed: meatballs, tomato soup, homemade potato rolls and cheddar biscuits, macaroni and cheese, and finally, a giant bowl of heirloom tomatoes.
Everything was great, and since it was the prime tomato season they were unbelievably fresh. The meatballs and bowl of tomatoes were a gift from the manager, and the meatballs may have been the best part of our meal. Our bread-loving Erica almost didn't share the potato rolls and cheddar biscuits and I don't blame her. They were delicious and fresh out of the oven. I preferred the rolls, served lightly oiled and salted, but Erica loved the biscuits.
We did not eat a "proper" meal, but the small plates we ate at the bar were very good. Next time I'm in town I'll stop by again, and if you're driving through the valley, you should consider it too. Oh, did I forget to mention they make their own wine? That's quite common in wine country, but they do and it's good.
