We visited Napa downtown on a weekend and was supposed to try Celedon Restaurant. Thanks to Napa General Store, which was opened during Saturdays second brunch! The place also sells memorabilia items, kitchen stuff, plus items related to wine and drinking. The fish n chips was the winner among the meals we ordered. The Rueben sandwich and burger were good...

The Napa General Store and Café is lovely dry goods store with high quality and artisan gifts and souvenirs for Napa and wine country. Definitely not your typical tee shirt and gift shop. Beyond the lovely gift items for purchase, there is a mid-range café located in one end of the shop and features a reasonably priced menu.

Eric was an amazing bartender, he took great care of us as we enjoyed tastings at his bar. We even returned on our last day to visit with him and buy a bottle of something he introduced us to!

We stumbled on the outside patio of the General Store while walking along the Napa River in Riverwalk. The lunch and wine selection were perfect and the service and ambiance were outstanding. Great place

This is a special icon in downtown Napa. The food is very fresh and the staff beyond friendly. We eat lunch there often. The shop itself is full of unique gifts and has the best collection of greeting cards in town.

Stopped here for lunch. Looked around a bit in store. Had lots of cool items for sale. Had lunch which was chopped chicken salad and a Chinese chicken salad. Both were good. $14 or so for salad. Pleased with everything but the service. Not so good. Nice spot though overlooking a little creek or river.

Nice little store with a cafe along the Napa river, it is along the river with many other shops, prices are about average,picked up a few gifts, if walking along the river, this is a nice stop.

Fairly standard breakfast items at typical Napa prices...the food was good, especially the French toast. Outdoor seating is dog-friendly
