Infamous!

You can't go wrong here! Such a selection of wonderful baked items. Sandwiches are also delicious! Very nice service and atmosphere. Always a treat to take a few things home. The English Muffins are renown!

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.

I go to Model Bakery all the time in St. Helena. Great baked goods and delicious cakes. I really love the place. I ordered a Salted Carmel Cake last week and it was amazing. Highly recommend.

The perfect host for hot and tasty breakfast sandwiches in any form or combination. Coffee is very good too - just be prepared to wait a bit for order to be prepared during peak morning rush. Limited table seating outside.

We went to Model on a Sunday morning for breakfast. It was busy, but service was quick. We got a breakfast sandwich, an english muffin with butter and jam, and the yogurt parfait. Everything was great but can't stop talking about the english muffins! They are so puffy and buttery.. definitely the best I've ever had. They have an outdoor... More

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. Have breakfast here before going to the wineries! Been going here our last four visits; plan accordingly because the line is typically out the door and takes... More
