A cute French bakery with delicious food. Almond croissant was amazing, avocado toast had too much arugula otherwise nice, and the French toast was yummy.

I live in Napa, and this is my favorite bakery because of the excellent pastries, especially the lemon tart.

We always plan to have a lunch at Costeaux when visiting Healdsburg. The soups and sandwiches maintain their quality and offer a delicious alternative to a regular sit down restaurant. The baked goods, including their sandwich breads, are amazing. We will return.

The croissants are to die for. Get there early because there is a limited quantity! I also recommend any of the pastries. It’s a great place to stop at before a day of wine tasting. We went there 3 days in a row.

Authentic french pasteries. Inventive breakfast selections. If you want lunch you need to get seated no later than 1:30pm. ( close at 2:30. Open at7:30am) Dogs welcome on patio. Just a winner every time.

Sitting outside on a wonderful cool morning having coffee and wanting something a bit more? I should have known when they said French Bakery that it would be phenomenal but must have missed it. The Quiche was suited for a dinner meal and absolutely off...the charts good. You must have breakfast there!!!More

Ordered to go two coffees and 2 croissants to go. It took 30 minutes for the coffee. The pastries were delicious. The coffee UNDRINKABLE. Really bad. I would suggest going someplace else. It was very expensive $15.00 and NO place to sit unless you ordered...a breakfast meal.More

We decided to take some pastries with us take back to our Hotel. Be careful as nothing is priced. Although the desserts were good they were expensive. We didn’t realize until we were at the register to check out. We were charged $42.00 and we...didn’t even get a receipt or any utensils. We bought a box of the Macarons and the nut tart. They were all tasty but we just felt like we were scammed.More

A pleasant bakery, but not what one would find in France. We ordered a pecan tart that was mostly crust, and an apple tart. Both tarts were too large and heavy, not French at all.

All the reviews make this place seem like a must, but I will say that it's a maybe. I had an omelette, and my girlfriend had a breakfast sandwich, because they were out of croissants somehow, in spite of being a French bakery. Everything we...ordered was fine, but not that great. Oakville Grocery is WAY better for breakfast and coffee than this place. Again, it's not bad, but it's average. I don't understand how people could give it a 5.More
