After nearly thirty years, Petaluma breakfast landmark Three Cooks Cafe will soon have new owners and a new name.
Owner Bobby Mangano is retiring, and local restaurateurs Miriam Donaldson and Josh Norwitt will reopen the cafe as Wishbone in October.
You may remember Donaldson and Norwitt from their
Cotati Penngrove venture, Humble Pie, and subsequent cafe, Blue Label at Santa Rosa’s Belvedere. Plans are for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch “with all due style and love,” according to Donaldson. The name: A nod to Petaluma’s feathery chicken ranching history and “an all around merry thought,” she said.
Before Bobby departs, however, the couple encourage folks to stop by and say farewell. ” He deserves a fine send off for keeping it real for almost 3 decades,” she said.
841 Petaluma Blvd North, Petaluma.
