Stop for breakfast

Very good breakfast. We liked the corned beef and hash. It was a great place to stop before our hike. Very cute little town.

Right on Main Street in downtown St. Helena, this restaurant offers traditional dishes that you are sure to enjoy. The servers are all friendly, and the service is quick. I thought the dishes were a bit pricey, but very tasty.

A local greasy spoon if you can call it that in Napa Valley. Quick and friendly service. Large portions and great food. I had the chorizo omelet with avocado and a side of their spicy hot sauce. Get the home fries extra crispy and set back and enjoy the morning. You won't be disappointed stopping in here.

Breakfast was fantastic! We ordered the country fried steak and eggs, banana pecan pancakes and the corned beef hash, all of the dishes were excellent. The service was great and the prices were reasonable.

Restaurant is open from 7AM to 3PM. This spot serves breakfast items all day until closing and lunch items during regular lunch hours. Menu is extensive and prices are reasonable, especially for such a pricey area. Larger parties like ours was seated in the back room, which ended up being private for us since no other parties were seated there.... More

Aside of the longer than normal wait to be waited on, everything was awesome about this place. I think my meal was called a Napa Scramble. It was AMAZING. Their bread is also amazing. Our server was very helpful and cheery. Definitely made our long day start well.

This is a must do restaurant. Our omelettes were fabulous. The eggs made the difference. They were the best we have had. Convenient location, great service, terrific food and reasonable prices.

Good food and friendly service. We were not rushed and enjoyed a relaxing morning before touring wineries. Parking is on the street and we did not have a trouble finding a spot. Place does get busy and it did not affect the service.

This was our first time having lunch at Gilwoods. Always thought of it as a place for a hearty breakfast. We both had salads that were wonderful and large. Both were tasty and fresh as well as reasonably priced. I highly recommend having lunch here as well as breakfast.

We went here for a late lunch and were only 15 minutes before closing. Despite this, had great service and delicious food. I'm not a huge slider person, but the description appealed to me so I decided to try it. They were great! You can tell the bread for the rolls is made in house and was delicious.
