The coffee was very good, the bread is amazing and many choices, the breakfast sandwiches looked and smelled yummy! The staff was friendly and helpful, there was a line out the door both days tht we visited but it was well worth the wait!

Fun little place to eat breakfast or if you need a sweet snack. Right in the heart of downtown St. Helena. Place was packed on an early Saturday Morning, with locals and tourists. My only negative, lots of fly's in the bakery store front. We decided to eat outside to avoid them.

We like to go to The Model Bakery for breakfast. They have great coffee and the best collection of pastries. My personal favorite is the almond croissant. Staff is great. It can be busy so at times there is a wait. The breakfast sandwiches and baked goods are worth waiting for.

I stop in regularly for French bread to take home for dinner and loaf bread, that they'll slice for you, to take home for sandwiches. Go before noon for the BEST breakfast sandwiches - but make sure you get it on their delicious English Muffins! There's no seating inside, but there are picnic tables outside. Here's a tip - if...

An excellent place to shop adjacent to the Oxbow Public Market - - a wide variety of fresh breads and uniquely delicious English Muffin.
