Pretty patio out back and tables inside as well. Go before 9:00 AM for breakfast as it gets busy about then. I had huevos rancheros and was disappointed by the minimal sauce and beans. It occurred to me later that it was supposed to have pepper jack cheese which I did not see at all. That would have improved it.... More

This isn't my favorite place I ate at in napa but it was good. I had the chocolate chip pancakes with orange juice it tasted like it was just squeezed. I'd recommend this place

Hubby had chicken & waffles and I had Asian salad, also had a cup of clam chowder and fresh squeezed orange Juice, bill was just about $50.00, not bad for a the area, the view and everything is made fresh right there. We didn't wait long at all for our food, but it was worth the wait. Very good food,... More

We had a good lunch with a varied menu that included a few vegetarian options. Service was attentive and we were allowed to linger after the meal to continue our conversation.

A great little spot for breakfast. We wanted to eat before spending the day sampling Napa's finest wines. Great choice. Wonderful french toast and omelets.

I stopped by last week during my first visit to Napa and picked it because of it's outdoor seating and view of the river. There were plenty of choices and the food was excellent. I had a grilled chicken salad with a mustard vinaigrette. I would definitely eat here again.

The breakfast was very well made. Tasty and fresh. However the kitchen was so slow that we thought of leaving before the food was served.

Great little cafe-but the gift shop is the star attraction. This place has the best selection of Barrel and wine inspired furniture. There is a nice little cafe in the back where you can grab breakfast or lunch. It also has a wine tasting bar.

Thank you for commenting on our gift shop. We work really hard to keep in unique and work with all of our artisans to continue to re-invent some very special items for folks to take away. We do have one of the largest collections of wine barrel furnishings and it is always fun to see what our artisans will create... More

I met two of my friends here for lunch while I had jury duty for a week. It was close and I had heard good things about the breakfast so I guessed the lunch would be good. It was a gorgeous Napa day, not cold, not hot...just right. The outdoor patio is so pleasant too as was our server. I... More
