Review
Owned & operated by the Hotel Healdsburg next door. Panini, gelato, pastries, and the only Peet's coffee dealer in town. Large, bright open-air windows on a corner sidewalk. One outdoor table. Inside are a few standing tables, two sitting tables, a sofa, a coffee table, and over 200 magazines at the newsstand. Using a two-group Mr. Espresso Rancilio, the distracted baristas produce a good layer of medium brown crema in a Peet's logo IPA cup. Mild smoky and tobacco flavor. Almost as good as a Peet's. [CLOSED: Pizzando as of 2014.]
