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.

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.

This place is funky and eclectic. We sat outside and had prompt service. The drip coffee here is magical...not sure what they do to make it so good. Our breakfast was absolutely delicious. Eat here when in Napa!!

Our first breakfast was so good we ate here all 3 days we were in Napa. Outstanding service provided by Lisa and Tiffany. Outdoor seating is a must. Beautiful flowers surround the patio. The store has unique items and a friendly cashier, Patty. This is a must stop and eat while in Napa. I wish we could have stayed another... More
