Diner Atmosphere and Memorable for Children

Our family of four was looking for a place that would satisfy all of our dietary needs; this cafe succeeded in that. The prices were reasonable and the service was good. It was a hot day, and they did have a problem with flies. That said, the food was good, the atmosphere was homey (lots of locals... read more

Best breakfast restaurant in town. Everyone in our party of 4 loved their meal. The menu has a nice mix of traditional breakfast items and creative dishes.

I'd give this a "Very Good" review, as the food was really great, but the overall price for what it is was pretty expensive. Essentially, it is a cute and charming California diner. However, when paying $40 for breakfast for two, I'd expect more for the money. With that said, the area is generally pricey so perhaps it is not... More

enjoyed our first breakfast here so much, we went back a second day for breakfast while on vacation. The food came quickly and was very filling. Both days we had nice conversations with our servers. It was mid-week so they were not too busy. Not fancy by any means, but good food.

We walked around Calistoga looking for a place to have lunch. There were lots of choices, different cuisines ... really you could pretty much find food from all over the globe. But we wanted something a little more 'American' as we'd already had Chinese, Mexican, Cuban, Thai etc. Whilst in San Francisco. We found it in Cafe Sarafornia! Although our... More

Small omelette for $14.25 and it wasn't all that good. Only in Napa Valley would a place like this be crowded. Atmosphere and ambience was ok but not really good enough to make up for all else.

counter for quick service, you could tell this is a place the locals like as the food was excellent, the kitchen fast and the personnel very friendly. Nice downtown location, fun to walk around.

We have been coming to Calistoga for our anniversary and other get aways for several years now and we have tried lots of wonderful places to stay, from The Cottage Inn to the Best Western to the Boothe-Napa campground (all have their different charms). Every time we stay, we eat breakfast at Cafe Sarafornia. I am a breakfast lover. A... More

The food is awesome. We come here every morning for breakfast when visiting Calistoga. Even my son, who is a work-out nut and never puts anything "bad" into his system, couldn't help but order the French Toast (ever morning).
