“Great food, reasonable price and wonderful people”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

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 other drinks. The wine list is limited but good.
This is one of our favorite places to eat in the town of Sonoma. No fancy decor, not a big production but a reasonably priced place to go with very good food when you don't want to cook at home.
And, the staff is delightful.

“Delicious and fresh!”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

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!!

“We call it Bob's”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

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 roll. My regular, though, is the Chicken Salad...it's the goat cheese, apples and pumpkin seeds that make it special. All desserts are good, homemade, but the ice cream in the sweet tortilla shell with caramel sauce is to die for.

“Great local place for breakfast.”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

We have been to The Breakaway Cafe twice now in one week for breakfast. Both were good experiences. Polite and attentive service. I tried the Corned Beef Hash today. My husband enjoyed the pancakes and bacon. They have some unique mexican offerings. Last time I tried the Machaca Con Huevos. It was shredded pork, mild pasilla peppers and onions in scrambled eggs. Yum!
They offer a small and large portion which is great, depending on how hungry you are!

Reviewed July 24, 2014

I went here for dinner my first night in town. Had fish and chips and a root beer float. Both were quite satisfying.
