We ate here three times while in town. Very tasty and good selection. The best part of this little diner is Sara. She was absolutely precious. Always smiling and happy. This place reminds me of times past. Everyone knew each other and spoke to one another fondly. As I said, the food is great but the service is one of... More

I've had breakfast here many times during the past eight years and usually start with the Good-For-You-Oatmeal and fresh fruit and split pancakes or an egg dish and vegetarian sausages with my companion. Breakfast begins at 7 am. Servers like Paula and Loreen do a great job and remember my name. Must be a good place to work because the... More

Best lunch unique and homemade. Curried chicken and blue cheese dressing we're outstanding. I'd definitely get it again.

We ate breakfast here in mid June and it was excellent. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for any meal. The staff were very friendly and courteous. I think it is the oldest restaurant in Calistoga. Definitely worth a stop, even if it is for one of their homemade desserts. YUM!

We weren't town for a wedding and headed here twice for breakfast. Fabulous French toast, cheese blintzes, great "scramblers", etc. Good coffee and very personable wait staff! We miss this place! Get there early or prepare to wait as it is not very big!
