Costeaux French Bakery in Healdsburg- ended up here after 4 seniors drinking coffee on a bench outside Downtown Bakery and Creamery recommended it, after overhearing our discussion re: where to eat breakfast. I wanted to order breakfast at Downtown, but my uncle seemed fixed on table service, and a restaurant with more standard breakfast offerings. Costeaux had great bread, and friendly service. I tried their breakfast sandwich with avocado, cheese, egg and applewood bacon, which was fine, and the other people at our table tried the omelette with spinach and avocado. Although I liked the breakfast I ordered, I prefer the types of offerings on the breakfast menu at Downtown Bakery.

Hank's Creekside Restaurant- The following day, my uncle wanted to take us to a breakfast place he had visited before, in Santa Rosa. The name was escaping him, so we drove around, but never found it. We stopped at a paint store to ask about the restaurant, and they ended up recommending Hank's Creekside Restaurant. I tried the huevos, which were fine, and the other 3 people at our table ordered omelettes. If we end up here in the future, what would you recommend the most?

Equus- The 3rd morning, we had breakfast at Equus. Limited selection of dishes to order, but reasonably priced. I tried a spinach, swiss and mushroom omelette. Generous amount of spinach, cheese and mushrooms, which was nice. Friendly service.
