Alway enjoy visiting the Breakaway Cafe when I am visiting Sonoma. They have friendly staff, good food, and pleasant surroundings. I have been taking my family there for over 10 years and have never been disappointed.

My husband and I stopped in for lunch while in the area on vacation. The food came out timely and was really very good!

Food is excellent-fine dining in an unassuming building. Staff are all attentive and service is calm and professional. My only caveat? I always leave a little hungry--the fish tacos, while excellent, need to be half again as generous a portion. Even the ubiquitous slaw, which is excellent, is a little sparse on the plate. Prices are on the high side... More

Worth a visit. Our first breakfast on our first visit to California. Food was very good and the staff went out of their way to make us comfortable. Would definitely go to this restaurant on our next trip.

Tagging along with friends (locals) for dinner, we were pleased with the overall experience. Menu was broad and easy to choose from. Food and service were far above average -- qualities that made for a very nice dinner. Make sure to ask for the special pie dessert -- home made!

We stopped here on our way to the Sonoma Coast as it was recommended by others on this site and is away from the crowded downtown plaza. The parking is good and the clientele seemed mostly locals. We had lunch which was nothing special and a bit expensive. Since it was Sunday, many were eating breakfast and it looked like... More

This is a great place to eat if you don't want a fancy wine country meal. It's just good cooking. They have steaks and a few standard entrees plus daily specials. The Jambaliya is always great as are the vegetarian enchilada on Saturday night is outstanding. Best of all they have a great bar. The martinis are excellent as are... More

Great breakfast spot for traditional or unique breakfast choices such as the black bean la bamba bowl served with fresh salsa and the tomato and avocado eggs Benedict were fantastic! Will definitely return!!

Breakaway Cafe is one of our favorite places to eat. Easy to get to and always comfortable. On any given night the owner, Bob, will pass through saying hello, sometimes even bringing out a dish. Food is fresh and creative. The Monday night pot roast is one of those comfort food dinners, as is the pulled pork on dutch crunch... More
