America's Coolest New Diners
Fremont Diner, Sonoma, CA
With its reclaimed-wood bar, vintage metal stools, and screened-in wraparound porch, The Fremont (open only for breakfast and lunch) adds retro style to the diner concept. Owner and pit master Chad Harris takes a Slow Food approach, sourcing ingredients from local farms—including the one out back—for southern-inspired fare like shrimp and grits with house-made sausages and poached eggs, or smoked Marin County whole-hog sandwiches.
Don’t Miss: A piece of fried pie and a glass of white from the surrounding vineyards.
