Near the Westin this is one of several Model locations. It is primarily a fine bakery and second a restaurant. The sandwiches were excellent with really fresh bread. Worth a stop.

The place is, somehow, not that easy to find (if you're a tourist like me), once it's "outside" the oxbow market (at least when you park at the parking lot). Just follow the signs and you'll get there.... I had the breakfast sandwich, which was very nice and tasty, but there's a line in the morning.... so, go there without... More

Perfect spot for a quick and delightful breakfast. Just a half-city block away from the Napa Valley Wine Train, they offer an amazing variety of sweet and savory breakfast options. The coffee is beyond superb and the apricot/pecan scone is not to be missed.

All we had was the english muffin, so can't comment on anything else, but!!! redefined what an english muffin can be. I'm afraid I will never be able to eat the grocery store variety again...

This place was hopping so we stopped here for breakfast before the wine train. Food wasn't as great as I thought it would be given the crowd, but maybe the baked goods are better (we had breakfast sandwiches).

Thanks Tripadvisor for this lead. We loved our breakfast sandwiches and purchased a six pack of english muffins for the rest of our tip. I will plan on going back next time in Napa.

We went there to have lunch. We ordered the chicken sandwich and saw someone with pizza and had to try a slice. The pizza had huge pepperoni on it and the crust was delicious. The sandwich was very tasty also. Didn't get any sweets, am sure we missed out.
