My Healdsburg Bites: Oakville Grocery Co and Noble Folk

November 10, 2014

Just one day to spend in Healdsburg and I start it with a walk in the hazy morning through the farmer’s market before ending up at Oaksville Grocery Co.  



The well stocked grocery store with a coffee and sandwich shop was quiet in the morning.  With so many sandwiches to choose from, I pause for a minute but the choice was pretty obvious.



A toasted avocado BLT on toasted bread with a fried egg of course!  A little bit of hot sauce added a kick to the now breakfast sandwich, nothing a fried egg can’t improve.



Before I left, I remembered to grab a bar of salty sweet cashew bar chocolates for my sweet tooth later.



As I stepped out of Oakville Grocery, I turned right into another gem in town, Noble Folk Ice Cream and Pie Bar.  Even though I knew that I should have turned and walked in the opposite direction, the lure of locally made ice cream and pie was too strong.   The founders of Noble Folk were natives of the Sonoma valley but they drew from Scandinavian and Japanese influences in their ice creams.


Despite all the innovative flavors offered, I couldn’t resist the classic combination of maple ice cream with homemade pecan pie.  There is just something about creamy maple sweetened ice cream and buttery crust of pecan pie that make so much sense.



And another scoop of Japanese purple yam with caramel sauce and a sprinkle of pistachio because I just can’t seem to say no.  After all, when was the last time you saw purple yam as a flavor on the menu?  The caramel sauce added a nice salty bite and the crumble of pistachios was a lovely nutty addition.  Nothing like freshly made ice cream and pie to start off the weekend in lovely Healdsburg.
