simple food, with superb products
If preferable, something that's open for lunch, as we want to keep dinners for more high-end places.
THanks a lot!

The Gravenstein apple harvest should be happening. Stop by a farmstand for a bag of these special apples, or go to the festival. I usually drive up to Sonoma to buy these apples when they are in season, and their fragrance perfumes my car all the way home.

If you prefer San Luis Obispo I'd suggest Meze cafe for an interesting menu and tapas, wine is also available. Enjoy the trip.

Also, in SF, we had a great lunch at Cotogna - wood-fired oven pizza and wood-fired oven lots of other stuff.
LOVE Cotogna as well. Don't know about now, but the first few months it opened, reservations were hard to get, even for lunch. However, there are some seats by the counter that are reserved for walk ins. They did fill up quickly when we did that so it's best to get there right when it opens for lunch.

There is a whole thread on burgers in Wine Country on Chowhound that I have contributed to and can heartily recommend Norman Rose's lamb burger.
