"The bakery and café is a classic iteration of Ascaso’s favorite European bakeries, offering old world details with a California attitude. Channeling the vibe of the original bakery on Chestnut Street, the new location has plenty of brass, tile, marble, and hardwood; formica tables and bentwood chairs round out the vision, which is overseen by dangling milk glass spheres. It’s all influenced by Ascaso’s love of classic French bakeries, with the helping hand of Chateau Sonoma, a French importer in Sonoma." -- EATERSF "With huge windows that let in cascades of light, gleaming marble, brass and tile fixtures, and a positively tempting pastry case, the elegant cafe is a très parfait spot to rendezvous." -- 7X7 Catering: Bakery owner can work with you personally to develop a custom menu from canapés and hors d'oeuvres or a full family-style meal.

We had a wonderful event at Le Merais, the entire team were so helpful in the setup and breakdown, and ensured that we had our event run smoothly throughout. All of our guests had a great time and the space looked beautiful. Thank you!

Working with Joanna and Patrick was fantastic, and the space and catering were everything we could have wished for and more! Joanna went above and beyond both before our birthday celebration and on the night to make it just perfect.
Meredith S. booked an off-site for 20 people
We LOVED working with the owners/ hosts. They were great to collaborate ideas with and offer resources. The space was even more perfect than the images and the guests raved about the food. We hope to do another event there some time soon!
