My Go-To coffee in Calistoga

When I want a GOOD cup of coffee I go to Yo El Rey in Calistoga. I always have pour over coffee and choose between the different coffee beans (all organic) available. Lately, I've enjoyed the Mexican coffee. Yes, you pay a little more than your regular cup of coffee, but hey, it's a treat!

They are hard workers and very busy. We love their coffee and will always stop when we are passing through town. You will not get much fluff and I felt scolded when I asked for non fat milk. It seems hit or miss on how pleasant they are but we will keep going back for the coffee. Not many tables... More

I go here often to get some strong deliciuos coffee. A hippie artistic vibe which is kind of fun. The Napa Valley is so corporate and phony now this is a place authentic and real.

The beans are roasted to perfection - whether it's in a fresh brewed cup or in a 1-lb bag to take home. Their bakery items are a sinful delight too.

My husband and I frequented Yo El Rey several times on our most recent stay in Calistoga and each time the quality of the coffee and service was excellent. We also tried the date bar as well as the coconut macaroon, and they were both delicious.

I have gone here for coffee with friends on numerous occasions. It is very convenient, right near the Farmers Market on Saturdays, and plenty of other stores around the corner. They serve a good cup of coffee and the wait staff is pleasant and efficient.

I dropped in for a quick cup of cappuccino and they delivered on a good product. No frills but high quality roast. My daughter had the poor over decaf which smelled excellent. Side note: the baked goods they serve are delicious. I love everything about the chocolate dipped macaroons.

Decent espresso but the staff were having a logistics dispute that they didn't hide when I entered and the barista didn't know how to foam milk for a dry cap.

This little Organic gem is just off the main strip next to the police station. The owner roasts everyday! The coffee is made with love... You won't find a bunch of different machines. Watching them make your coffee is like watching coffee chemist at the highest level perfecting their craft in every cup. The coffee is strong, fresh, & tasty...... More

We loved the coffee at this little out of the way coffee shop. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the barista adds new thoughts and poetry to the walls every day, keeping the environment ever changing and very interesting!
