July 20, 2015

            This is my go to spot for getting picnic items when I’m in Healdsburg. I rarely go to restaurants there during the summer months. There’s just too much scenery to miss when you are indoors! Oakville has been around since 1881 and the staff is always friendly and efficient. Their displays are always packed full of local fresh food.

If you prefer not to order from the pre-made options, they have a made-to-order Menu available (usually what I order off of). They have salads, sandwiches and pizza. My two favorites are the Veggie Wrap and Fresh Mozzarella Sandwiches.

Their cheese selection is incredible and the staff is always very helpful with choosing the right one you are looking for. My Favorite is the Cypress Grove Chèvre Goat cheese in Purple Haze (herbed goat cheese). The packaging and texture make it an easy picnic option. I spread it on crackers.

This is their sample table. It always has an assortment of olive oils, tapenads, and other condiments.

Of course there is always a great selection of wine. I don’t drink, so I opt for the refrigerated drinks. They have it all; soft drinks, juices, wine country sodas and their own water they bottle.

If you are a meat eater then you will love their selection. They carry world renowned Hobbs. The same brand that gets served at Thomas Keller’s French Laundry.

I never eat there…why would I when their beautiful park is just steps away. See what I mean? There’s lots of shade and lots of benches with a fountain in the middle.

Here is my go to order the Veggie Wrap. It’s a Greek style wrap with a dolma in middle.

And this is where I ended up picnicking. As you can see Healdsburg is full of stunning picnic destinations! Why sit in a restaurant when this can be your picnic play ground?

       Tip: If you want to beat the crowd on the weekends be sure to get there before 12pm.

       My Quick Take: This really is the quickest and easiest place to get take-out in Healdsburg.

Oakville is located at 124 Matheson St. Healdsburg, CA 95448 and open 9-5 daily.

Happy Picnicking!
