All of us enjoyed the food here. We had a late breakfast, before going out to see wineries. I would definitely come here again. My daughter got a mimosa, and said it was the best she ever had. But beware: like many places in upscale Healdsburg, it can be pricey; breakfast for 4 wound up being almost $90.

Costeaux bakes some of the best bread, cookies, etc in California. Very nice ambiance and service in the cafe. My favorite is their Walnut Bread.

If you like a roast beef au jus sandwich you will LOVE Costeaux's. The beef is house roasted rib eye and is perfect! And, the bread, sourdough, well they are known for their bread as a bakery. The bread makes the sandwich along with the caramelized onions and horseradish spread, superb. The other aspect of this meal is the French... More

My wife and I enjoyed a few great breakfasts at this restaurant. The staff was wonderful and friendly. The food was as good and the coffee was hot. A little bit more expensive than some other places, but well worth the difference. See you again soon.

We were here early, so not much of a wait but there were a lot of people waiting while we ate and when we left. We felt very rushed by the waitstaff who were very polite and accomadating, but trying to rush us out. We ordered a simple breakfast of poached eggs with bacon and potatoes and coffee. The coffee...

Costeaux was recommend to us by friends the night after a winery dinner. So, maybe Sunday for brunch might have explained the long wait. There were many empty tables, but maybe the kitchen can't handle the volume? Breakfast, eggs Benedict was good, but the basket of assorted breads was the highlight. Good, but plenty of other alternatives in healdsburg within... More
