Convenient good food by Fairmont Sonoma

Went here for breakfast and hit the spot. The menu was good, felt could have been better given it is recommended/part of Fairmont Hotel. Some healthy options, but not what it was geared toward. Had the staple breakfast menu and everyone was happy. The ambiance was basic - that's the best way I can... read more

Lori saved our breakfast meal each morning. We should have known it was going to be a challenge after being given directions to the restaurant by the Concierge who just said “follow the signs” and gestured off toward the main door. The signs are not obvious so we had to ask maintenance staff for directions. FYI - It’s out on... More

Great spot for breakfast. Went there 3 mornings. Eggs were cooked to perfection. Pancakes were fluffy.

We are staying at the Sonoma Mission Inn and receive a breakfast voucher every morning. We first ate here last year and have enjoyed it every time! I really like their California scramble and my husband gets their burrito. A must have is their famous lemon & cottage cheese pancakes!

Great food, amazing service and just a great vibe. Even got me hemp milk for my tea. Really went out of the way to deal with all of our specific dietary requests.

Booked this breakfast as a bed and breakfast package with The Fairmont MIssion Inn and Spa. On it's own it is pricey. The food was excellent and the service was excellent. I wish I was told, or maybe I just didn't read correctly, taxes and a 20% gratuity for breakfast was not included in my Bread and Breakfast package at... More

My wife had stayed at the Fairmont before and raved about the lemon cottage cheese pancakes. I've got to say, they were delicious. I had the eggs benedict which were average. Expect hotel restaurant prices. For a Fairmont related facility, it needs a serious update. It's pretty worn.

Rating: 4.5 -- downgraded because of the wine issue and the coffee not being real strong. Summary -- Excellent food (steak, fish tacos, and salad), a hiccup on the wine that was resolved very well. Coffee weaker than Starbucks, and I normally drink Peet's super strong so might be fine for most people. Good staff, spacious airy interior probably from... More
