This is a nice all American breakfast done very well. Our party of four had different items off the menu and they were all very good. The serving staff was friendly and nice too. In my opinion you will not be disappointed.

We were recommended this cafe as we were looking of a good late breakfast and were unfamiliar with the town. Very helpful staff. God service and value for money for eggs and bacon coked exactly the way you ask for them! Would go again.

The simple frontage was CLEAN, hence encouraging further interest. Coffee, food quality, quantity and service all excellent. Clean on the inside too. Tricia did a great job, affable, pleasant and had not lost her sense of humour. Regrettably it closes at 3PM so no dinner...

Finally found a place for breakfast that was local and good. Sounds like an easy task but we just wanted a simple cafe with a basic breakfast offering and good cup of coffee. This got our day off to a good start. It is located in St. Helens on the Main Street and easy to find. After breakfast we could... More

Went for lunch. Staff were "all" very friendly. Servers. Bus help. Very reasonable prices for the area. Chicken Vegetable Soup was homemade, fresh and tasty. We both had the Chipotle Pesto Smoked Turkey Ciabatta. OUTSTANDING. When in St.Helena, get a great meal at a cheap price.

Very nice for breakfast. Large portions. Good food. Eggs just right. Tasty breads. Wonderful service. They were very busy, but the server made sure we had what we needed. When we delayed to talk she was most gracious in getting us out so others could enter. She did that extremely well: professionally, with a smile and a quip. Class act.

Great food, service and just a small town feel that is a nice welcome. We came here in June and had breakfast and couldn't wait to return. This is one of those places that every small town, on Main Street has. But, Gillwoods is better. Plus, this place took me back to my childhood, having breakfast out with my grandma.... More

What a treat and a great way to start the day. Great service, yummy food and reasonable prices. he most beautiful, perfectly cooked poached eggs. How do they do it???? The bacon was delicious, wished I had ordered more. I chose the roasted tomatoes which were yummy, especially with the eggs topping them. The prices were very reasonable for this... More

The best breakfast in Napa, and one of the best in the country! Fresh eggs, thick sliced bacon, light and fluffy Belgian waffles, fresh squeezed orange juice, and more! At a price you can't beat. And the portions are large enough to share.

Great French toast. We were seated right away. Shortly after sitting they asked to move over 1 table to seat a bigger party. We got 15% knocked off the bill and didn't even make one fuss about it.
