We had lunch here while staying at the Napa River Inn. I highly recommend doing the wine pairing. It was a great way to try some of the local wines with the different foods. Great selection for lunch and we were able to sit outside on the patio even in December.

Always go for the Cornmeal Pancakes, stay for the omelets. Nice location on the river and the adjoining 'gift store' was a plus for my wife to browse.

My wife and I found out about the restaurant in the back of the General Store. We ordered clam chowder and chinese chicken salad. Both were extremely tasty. The restaurant was small, cozy and casual. Service was excellent.

Stopped in on a Sunday afternoon for a snack. Noi, our waitress was fantastic. Chopped chicken salad is great. Very pleasant sitting outside on the patio.

This store has some interesting stuff if you are interested in accumulating unique items. We did not try the café but it was certainly tempting while two in our group spent considerable time looking through the various items in the store.

We enjoyed a casual outdoor breakfast at the General Store. The service was pleasant and attentive, and the food was terrific. It's a little off the beaten path but worth the trip for a great breakfast.
