For nearly 2 decades we've been coming to this restaurant and have enjoyed not only the fare, but the service. Recently, it went through some management changes that have rendered the establishment, a formerly great local eatery, a much poorer place in both environment and...More

After several days of wine tasting in Sonoma, we needed a great burger. This is in a strip mall, and doesn't look like much. The service and food is fantastic and you can get a fantastic burger or some more Sonoma fare if you choose....More

We have never been disappointed when having breakfast or dinner at Breakaway. It is always a good value. We usually have dinner there, and consider it a bargain for the quality and price. Typical favorites are the chicken piccata and jambalaya (paella) dish. Service is...More
