We come here every year we visit Napa. It's downtown just to the back of the market in downtown. English muffins are baked on premises and you will not find better anywhere else.

It was while I was driving around that I got acquainted with the original St. Helena Model Bakery and enjoyed their specialty sandwiches for lunch.

So glad I tried this place on our first day! This was a great place to pick up breakfast to go, their breakfast sandwiches were so delicious. They also have fresh fruit and lunch items as well.

We visited here because we saw them on the best thing I ever ate for their English Muffins. They did not disappoint. If you come you must try one.

We visit the bakery in February 2015 and was very pleased with it. The food was very good, great selection. Very interesting and fresh made things. It was very busy in the morning, but the service was fine.
