This was my first visit to Model Bakery and I know it won't be my last . Friends had been raving about the place: must try the English Muffins, Danish Braid, the egg sandwich. Ok let's go. What excitement to step into a quality bakery and see all the selection they offered. I went with the skinny egg sandwich and... More

Anytime I'm in Napa I make a beeline for The Model Bakery and their almond macaroons. They are the bomb! Besides cookies they have interesting sandwiches like fresh mozzarella and hummus on focaccia bread. While I have not moved beyond the macaroons, all of the other baked goods look extraordinary, particularly their signature English muffins. They also have a basket... More

Everything I've had here is good. Be aware if you stop for coffee and a snack that there is no restroom.

Was invited to a friend's home for dinner and stopped by to pick-up a pie. A bit pricey, but it was fantastic!

So came her to get the English Muffins to take home to SoCal and also got a Cinnamon Roll. The cinnamon roll was good, but too many nuts for my liking. The English muffins were interesting...the smelled like a doughnut and were a bit greasy too...like a doughnut. Not your average English muffin and reminded me more of a doughnut... More

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!
