Breads, pastries,cookies and more nothing like it anywhere in town. I was here two years ago on Christmas eve and the restaurant was stacked high with... More

Had a fine lunch Sunday. Wife and I shared an egg salad sandwich on grilled grain bread along with a charcuterie plate that was fantastic: 3 cheeses, salami, proscuitto, apple, dried cranberries, walnuts along with great bread and home made panforte (very good but not quite as good as the real thing we've had in Siena, Italy). Also took home... More

Great croissant, but go to Flying Goat for coffee. Woman working at counter was a little unpleasant in my opinion

The title says it all! Made with cinnamon walnut bread & just served perfectly. My husband had the breakfast quiche which looked amazing. Great fresh ingredients & made to order. Didn't experience any service problems at all, in fact it was nice not to be rushed during our meal. Staff were very attentive & helpful. Breakfast is served all day... More

We stopped in this morning. It was horrible .... the food was cold and the service was worse. The server did not acknowledge us for 15 minutes (the restaurant wasn't busy); and just arrived with a snotty "do you know what you want?". the other servers greeted tables and discussed specials ..... My husband ordered coffee and two eggs over... More

We ate both breakfast (an omelette and french toast) and lunch (two of their made-to-order sandwiches) at Costeaux and both meals were delicious! It's a Healdsburg institution for a reason.

We stayed in Healdsburg the week before Memorial Day and ate breakfast here every morning before heading out on our wine tasting days. The omelet, granola, breakfast sandwich, quiche, and raisin walnut bread were excellent! We also bought baguette sandwiches to take with us to eat in the car, and they were perfect for lunch while we were wine tasting.

I like the people who own the place, but stick to their bread. I don't care for their desserts.
