Charming setting, great location, excellent service, and even better food for a good value, and a PALEO SCRAMBLE. Really? Breakfast heaven. They hit all the right marks including pasture raised bacon, local, organic ingredients. Everyone else enjoyed their non-paleo options, too. The fruit compote that came with the french toast and the hot chocolate got particularly rave reviews from my... More

This is a very cute place, located along the river in central Napa. It is combination country store and restaurant. There is a very inviting outdoor seating space and the service is good. We ate breakfast, which was average.....good but not great.

Visiting Napa for the Brian Culberston jazz fest, this was one of the restaurants that gave 15 percent off dining. So our party of four went there for Sunday breakfast, we appreciate the look of the outside patio, very nice, calming and Zen like. We all appreciated our wait staff, very professional! I ordered the napa breakfast, it says bacon,... More

We made the mistake of venturing into Napa for an early lunch on Mothers Day with no reservations. We lucked out and found a table with only a 20 minute wait, if we were willing to be seated inside. Nice menu of salads and sandwiches. Our party had a vermicelli noodle bowl which was so so, an very nice club... More

We enjoyed our breakfast eggs very much. The waitstaff was attentive to our needs but would not allow substitution. I had to pay extra for potatoes. The mimosa was very tasty. We liked the ambiance a lot. Nice walk along the riverfront to get to this restaurant. There was some nice antique pieces of furniture throughout the store and restaurant.
