January 2, 2013
by Vesta Copestakes

Lua Viet, Sebastopol Finally, Great Vietnamese in the West County
March 1, 2017
Lua Viet, a recent addition to Sebastopol’s international food scene, is easily missed if one is not looking for it.

Sandwiched between a dance studio and a physical therapy office in a quiet corner of a Gravenstein Highway shopping center, it is perhaps this relative seclusion that lends the place its aura of serenity. Stop in for a bowl of hot pho or cool vermicelli and a tall glass of draft Sapporo, and watch the troubles of the outside world recede.

Gourmet au Bay (1412 Bay Flat Rd) has been above the Bay for years, serving wine on their deck overlooking the water and sunsets, wine tasting and an excellent gift shop for tourists and locals. Always busy but never enough parking and a challenge to get on and off Coast Hwy 1.
