Sunday breakfast

I had the special omelette with shrimp, mushrooms, and mozzarell. It was good, but not the best I've had. The fresh squeezed orange juice is amazing, if you don't mind some pulp. It was very busy but we got a table and service quickly.

We ate here pretty much every morning we were in town, the service was quick, and the food was good.

The food is very good. The eggs, bacon, french toast, pancakes, orange butter..... Great breakfast, but it is stupid expensive for breakfast. The bill with tip for 3 of us was over $50. If I was in Vegas at the Mirage buffet, $17 per person, no problem.... At a glorified diner not really happy. Again, the food is good, but... More

Love the atmosphere. Old-time diner. Very nice staff. The food was average at best, the French toast was less than average, the hashbrowns are the cheap ones you get from the frozen food section. It wasn't cheap either. A real plus, the coffee was good. I will not go back.

This was a recommendation to us from someone at a winery. The restaurant itself was quaint and cute. The food we had was very good; we didn't have anything too fancy. The server was nice, but she seemed a bit off, so that's the reason for the average review. It's worth a stop - you really need to refuel in... More

We were a bit concerned after many of the reviews, but decided to come here anyway because our hotel have us a voucher. We really enjoyed it. I got the Brannan 's Benedict. The hubby got the salmon and cod cake Benedict special. We both really enjoyed our meals. We had great service and a great meal. As long as... More

Whenever I'm visiting Calistoga, I eat lunch here. Reasonable,delicious, and within walking distance from Indian Springs. I love, love, love, the chicken, chutney sandwich. It's the only place that I know of that makes this yummy sandwich. You'll love it! Also, friendly staff!

This restaurant has been around for a long time. It has a wonderful menu and excels in breakfasts. The only negative would be the wait for your order, a bit slow.
