Loved the breakfast here. What a historic place and muffins were outstanding, fresh and hot. A must try. There's one in Napa and one in St. Helena.

I wanted a quick bite for breakfast and came across this bakery. I was also intrigued by its name. Upon entering the bakery, I found myself overwhelmed by the sheer number of pastries on display. It was already teeming with people at 10:00 a.m. I ended up selecting the apple/pecan/caramel bar. Boy, never have I tasted something as great as... More

Wish I could grab a breakfast sandwich there every day. Loved the neighborhood feel, the beautiful bakery selection of goodies, and a fantastic breakfast!

We stayed in Calistoga but found it worthwhile to drive to St. Helena each morning for breakfast here. The breakfast sandwich arrived on their homemade English muffin is great. We grabbed a Demi baguette for later (under two dollars,) and some cookies. This is a great bakery and had good coffee as well. This will be our go to spot... More

saw something about the english muffins here based off a pick by michael chiarello on food network. the english muffins are awesome. I also had the "steak and egg" sandwich here which was the best breakfast sandwich I've ever had, but also the most expensive at $8.50. You can get the english muffins to go and order them in packs... More

I live locally so this is a regular stop when I'm in town. Lots of goodies to call your name but my go to fav is the English muffin. Trust me, try it.

You can find pastries, desserts, sandwiches, drinks, and coffee here. Good place to put together a picnic! Would give it excellent, but tables always seem dirty

I first heard about Model Bakery when they were featured on the Food Network's The Best Thing I Ever Ate. And their English muffin lives up to the hype! Best to have it fresh at the store, toasted, with butter and jam on top, with a cup of coffee or tea. You can also buy them to-go, but are limited... More

Great breakfast sandwiches and coffee, the English muffins were the main attraction. We did have a cinnamon roll which was a little dry and not a lot of cinnamon, a little disappointing. Great spot in St. Helena.

Was recommended on my Fordor's Travel Guide to check it out. I was not disappointed! It's located on Main Street in the middle of the city center. When I arrived for a late lunch it was still growling of people. Had the Turkey & Brie Panini which came with glazed apples on a toasted cranberry bread. It was heaven! The... More
