Cute little bakery

This was the perfect start to the day... between jet lag and excitment for getting on the road for wine tasting... this was a nice short morning walk from the Westin and had an assortment of pasteries, breakfast sandwiches and coffee. Def stop by for a quick breakfast before starting your day.

Had already eaten breakfast but with all the hype I had to get a six pack of English Muffins to go. The Muffins were quite different more like a unsweetened donut crossed with a high quality hamburger roll. Though not a traditional English Muffin it was very tasty.

The English muffin was good. I have had better. That said, this a nice bakery. We enjoyed stopping by here a couple of times during our stay in Napa. And we love their cookbook!

After hearing some very positive reviews about the English muffins and breakfast sandwiches, my wife and I walked over from our hotel to try the ham, egg, and cheese sandwich on an English muffin. It was outstanding. They also had a great selection of pastries, which we tried later that afternoon at their St. Helena location. There are a few... More

Visited here as a first stop of the Epicurean Excursions tour to try their famous English Muffin. Wow! Not your typical grocery store muffin at all! Like a thick slice of homemade bread, yet when toasted it has that lovely crunch. Add butter and local honey and you are in heaven! After that delightful experience, we came back 2 days... More

I had a plain bagel and soy hot chocolate here for breakfast last weekend it was yummy. The bakery gets very busy in the am but staff are efficient and the breads are SO worth it. We will be back again next year!

The Model Bakery serves great food and is just a fun place for breakfast. We both ordered the English muffin with egg, cheese, and bacon. It was delicious! I got a yummy cheese Danish and he got a huge cinnamon roll. We also enjoyed sitting at the tables outside and people watching. Be sure to go early because they sell... More

It was 4pm before we made it to the Model Bakery in St. Helena to try their highly rated English muffins but they still warmed them up for us and served them with delicious jam. I am not a huge English muffin fan but THESE are melt in your mouth, light and airy to die for muffins. I am still... More
