Right on the water....great outdoor seating...great wine! The homemade tomato soup was killer, and the flatbreads hit the spot.

I have come to this restaurant several times for breakfast or brunch. The service is always very good. Food is above average. The price of each dish is mostly less than 15 dollars. Its nice to seat outside and just relax with your cappuccino or tea.

We stopped here 3 weeks ago and now I just hope that this place (and many others) will have survived the recent Napa earthquake. We enjoyed a nice lunch outdoors. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table to open up outside but it is easy to put in the time while perusing the many items for sale... More

First stop after arrival at Napa, and it was a sweet welcome. Had a delicious salad, and my husband had a turkey wrap with pico. Perfect way to start a trip!

Great shopping on the waterfront. Good prices, wine tasting and a wonderful outdoor patio. Had a great lunch and found their gifts priced below similar shops offering Napa memorabilia. Found a lazy Susan, barrel top 25. Cheaper than in St. Helena shop.

You can eat inside at one of the comfortable tables in the smallish dining room, or enjoy the lovely (and larger) seating area outside. The service is friendly and warm, and there are lots of interesting items on... More

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
