Had a great tasting experience with my wife at this location - cafe with other merchandise to purchase. Park on the street for free on the other side of main. We bought the wine tasting card at the tourist center.

Worth a visit. We had a large candle holder shipped home so we didn't have to carry it on the plane and also didn't have to pay tax. Staff are accomodating and friendly.

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.

This is a nice restaurant located near the center of town in Napa, Ca. I had their clam chowder and noodle bowl. The bowl of chowder was excellent, tasty with lots of clams. The noodle bowl was excellent as well with a hint of Asian flavors. My wife had their wine and small plate sampling, which included 4 small dishes... More

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.
