“Great place for a leisurely breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2011

My daughter lives in the area and when we visit we always go here at least once or twice because it doesn't feel like a restaurant. We get a yummy breakfast sweet from the case and a bottom-less cup of coffee and read the newspapers they provide. It's an interesting atmosphere and the food is great.

“Amazing, Do Not Leave Healdsburg Without Going”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2011

You've indulged in wine country's trappings and the morning demands a good breakfast; Costeaux's is the only option. The ambiance is pretty cool, a recent take on a French country cafe. The food however, is spectacular all the way around. Everything my group had, the omelets, the breakfast sandwiches, the french toast, even the peach preserves on the table, was spectacular. The best thing we had was the free taste of almond pastry that the servers brought around mid-meal. I don't know when we will be back in Healdsburg, but whenever that is I know I will be back at Costeaux's.

“Felt like a Parisian bakery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2011

Yum! We ran in on our way to visit wineries to grab a loaf of bread. We asked for the cashiers fave and she recommended their award winner. We had half the loaf gone before the first vineyard. I adore the cafe and the branding/ packaging is great. You should not miss this place!

“fantastic bakery and restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2011

I was pleasantly surprised by this bakery and restaurant (french) in the middle of downtown Healdsburg. I had a ravenous appetite and was excited to find
this fantastic bakery. I had travel thru france and it was as if the bakery was transported straight from france to California. The price of the meals were reasonable and
it only took less than 20 minutes to be served large portions of food . The waitstaff was attentive, kept the water glasses full and took the time to brief thru the specials of the day.
This bakery/restaurant far exceeded my expectations.

“Did not live up to earlier good reviews”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2011

Although the restaurant was only half full (at 2 pm), and I counted 5 staff, we stood at the door unacknowledged for at least 5 minutes (there was one couple ahead of us). We were taken to a table, and provided a menu. Several minutes later, an unenthusiastic waiter took our order.

For starters, we both had the French onion soup and for mains the garden panino and a Monte Cristo sandwich. The soup was flavorful, and the sandwiches were fresh and tasty. Fortunately the food made up for marked indifferent service.

I had the sense the whole time that we were at the restaurant that we were imposing upon them by providing our patronage.
