Here are a few ideas for restaurants and activities that we at the Camellia Inn believe are fantastic options for you or yours.
Costeaux French Bakery
If you’ve decided to bypass our breakfast at the Camellia Inn, which is fine wink…wink, then heading over to Costeaux French Bakery is a solid idea. Costeaux French Bakery started in 1923 and has been a Healdsburg staple ever since. Their bread recipes have been extremely successful over the years which has helped them win a handful of awards. Once you walk in, there’s no mistaking the décor as being completely French Bistro. You’ll be surrounded by charcuterie, an assortment of cheeses, and pastries. If you are looking for a top of the line sandwich, then this is your place. Any sandwich on their exceptional bread is a treat, but one of our favorites is the Chicken Panino on their Ciabatta Bread. Their soups are excellent as well as their homemade quiches. You can’t go wrong with a stop here.
Williamson Wines Tasting Room
One of the most excellent things about the Camellia Inn bed and breakfast in Healdsburg is, we are in walking distance to almost anything you want to do. Two minutes from the Camellia Inn’s front door is Matheson street, and that’s where the fantastic Williamson Wines Tasting Room resides. This shop is a combination tasting room and Wine shop.
What sets this place apart from some other tasting rooms is that you don’t need a reservation. If you’re out and about and enjoying Healdsburg, just head on in. The owners have many award-winning wines for you to taste as well as some food that’ll pair exceptionally well. If you want to plan a private tasting, Williamson Wines Tasting room would love to accommodate that. If you don’t know who to contact, we at the Camellia Inn would love to help you with this.
“One of the top 20 tapas restaurants in the U.S.” –Travel + Leisure
Are you a tapas fan? If so, this is one of the best places in Healdsburg to head over to. You can choose from an assortment of cold or hot tapas. My choice for a cold tapa, the Goat Cheese Toast and Beet Salad. You should then move on to the unbelievable Duck Meatballs. Top that off with the warm Monterey Calamari and the Croquetas. Their Spanish Wines and Ports are heavenly as is their Sangria. It’s a must stop for you when you stay at our Camellia Inn.
Noble Folk Ice Cream & Pie Bar
Also, a two-minute walk from the Camellia Inn, the Noble Folk Ice Cream & Pie Bar is a great place to tend to your sweet cravings. The owners of the very popular Moustache Baked Goods decided to open a locally sourced Ice Cream and Pie Par. Their pies will include grains such as faro and buckwheat, and they’ve been known to use almost forgotten cooking techniques and recipes. Their heritage pies are exceptional. The pie offerings as well as ice cream flavors change almost daily, which adds to the allure of this place. A few of us at the Camellia Inn recommend their Mississippi Mud Pie and then their Single Original Stumptown Coffee Flavored Ice Cream.
