“Boon Fly Cafe - a great little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

This Cafe is part of the Carneros Inn in Napa. We had a great dinner and two breakfasts while we stayed there. The service was great and the food was outstanding!!

“Too pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

This place is very cute from the outside, but really nothing special inside. In order to review the place, I did buy one donut for which they are famous. It was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. We both ordered eggs. I ordered bacon very very crisp, but that's not what I got. The food is good, but nothing special and it is expensive for breakfast.

“Not Bad, Not a Destination”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

This was our second visit to Boon Fly. The setting is nice, and I want to like it more than I do. I'm under the impression that this place is for early birds, even on the weekend, as, when we checked in at 7:30, it was only half-full, and it stayed that way. Service was reasonable, but I was left with the impression that that wine server (I'd hesitate to call her a steward) seemed like a newbie. Our server was pleasant and efficient, but I was a bit surprised that we were left to refill our wine glasses. We've liked all the food that we've had here, including last night's burgers and fries. I guess that the place just lacks ambiance, really nothing to differentiate it from other places with well-prepared food. Maybe there's more of a vibe at breakfast or brunch. Return? Maybe, only maybe. Lots of competition in Napa and Sonoma.

“Napa = Pricey... What did you expect?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

First visit to this great little place but hopefully not the last. Wife and I went with our niece and her husband. Had the chef's special omelet and it was awesome. Even the hash browns were unlike any I have ever had. My niece had the green eggs and ham and loved it.
The highlight of the visit for me was the Bacon Bloody Mary....served with a slice of thick cut bacon as a swizzle. This may have been the best bloody Mary I have ever had in a restaurant. The mix was a secret recipe developed by an employee over many years and other than tomato juice I could not coax out another single ingredient from his wife who was our waitress. Had it not been so early in the day I could have sat and enjoyed several of them. This place was great....pricey, yes....but very good.

“Worth every calorie!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

The breakfast here was just delicious. You must have the doughnuts... they are worth every calorie. The eggs in a basket were also amazing.
