Aaron Mills of Sunflower Caffé reports that they have added new menu items such as a scramble of organic eggs, Chèvre goat cheese, summer squash, and scallions, served with dressed organic greens, buttered organic multigrain toast, and jam.

Or check out the peaches and cream waffle with compressed peach, whipped cream and organic Vermont maple syrup. The protein entrant is a salad of organic mixed greens, shaved fennel, carrot, oranges, toasted brioche crumbs and lemon vinaigrette ($12 to $14). 421 First St. W., Sonoma. 996-6645.

Mila Chanamé-Hahn emailed excitedly that Bob Kralovec, aka Bob the Bartender, has left Saddles and reigns supreme over the Breakaway bar, immediately making his famous whiskey sours to age for 30 days.

And Michael Siegel just signed on as Breakaway’s new chef, having learned to cook from his mother and grandmother in Tucson, Arizona and started working in Tucson restaurants at age 16. He moved up to Sous Chef at the Tack Room. He then moved to San Francisco in 2003 where he worked as Sous Chef with Bruce Hill at Bix, and Chef de Cuisine at Betelnut under Alexander Ong.

In 2013 Siegel opened shorty Goldstein’s Jewish deli and will bring some traditional Jewish deli and family recipes to the Breakaway.

Mills says that the Breakaway will not be closing in August for remodeling as first estimated. He now expects the temporary closure to occur in mid-October and last about three weeks, instead of three months, and will reopen as the Mint & Liberty Diner with “a modern twist on a classic diner.” Many women and girls are looking forward to them starting with the restrooms.

The partners, including Mila Chanamé, James Hahn, Aaron Mills and Melissa Cameron also just changed the Bakeshop (formerly Crisp) to Honey & the Moon with organic ingredients.

They now get their flour from Central Milling, butter from Petaluma Creamery, and coffee from Acre Coffee, all in Petaluma, and Clover Sonoma organic milk.

Meanwhile, Crisp Bakeshop founder Andrea Koweek works at the Girl & the Fig Caters as brand ambassador, meanwhile making her super popular chocolate chip cookies and mile-high cakes.
