I like to meet friends for lunch or dinner at The Breakaway. I know I will always be treated like family as I'm served high end food in a pleasant environment. I drive to Sonoma from Santa Rosa because there is no restaurant close by that's as good or as inviting as The Breakaway. I love their fish tacos and steak dinners. The owner often sends over an appetizer on the house. Take a break at The Breakawy Cafe'.

Wow, as a local, I'm surprised that Breakaway is rated higher than Black Bear Diner which is more convenient with a better atmosphere and more interesting choices...

I have been a frequent customer for several years. The restaurant is attractive and unpretentious. The service impeccable, and the simple food always delicious and impeccably prepared. Soups, sandwiches, burgers and main courses are exceptional, and prices very reasonable. Very popular with Sonoma locals for good reason.

Breakaway cafe is more than a cafe. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner (closed for a couple of hours in the afternoon), it has a broad menu at good value.
There are specials everyday (even at breakfast) The chef cooks fish extremely well. The fried calamari is also quite good. Their soups and salads are also delicious. From comfort food such as meatloaf and mashed potatoes or the fish tacos with a delicious unique slaw to the specials of the day which include meat/fish and potatoes/pasta/rice and a vegetable, it all tastes good!
The wine selection is limited but they do have a full bar as well and make a good margarita.
The staff is friendly and attentive.
It is a good place for informal business meetings as well as for family events. I often take out of town guests for breakfast or lunch.

As frequent weekend visitors to Sonoma, we always make time for a Breakaway breakfast. Their delicious Huevos Rancheros are the best but all the dishes have been wonderful. Lunches and dinners are also excellent - with the Beltane Burger (grass fed local beef) at the top of my list - with the crispiest fries. A recent Saturday night we had the fish special with salsa verde which was the best we have ever had. This unassuming restaurant in a shopping center is well known by locals who love the friendly service and food. For tourists it is a little off the beaten path but very well worth the effort.
