My husband and I have been visiting Calistoga for over 20 years, and Café Sarafornia was the first, and only, place we have breakfast. There may be a wait, but it is well worth it because visitors and locals share this wonderful restaurant! It has a very comfortable, homey feel which is what I like. If you prefer a quiet... More

My second time here so the first must have been good enough to come back. Our party tried 3 dishes from the breakfast menu and one was very good (Hash dish). Service was at best average and coffee was pretty bad. Two in our party had broken and stained coffee mugs. If you are going to charge $4.00 for regular... More

Cafe Sarafornia does not position them selves for instant service but that's what they did for us when we needed it. Running late for a 12:45 appointment we stopped here and got the best sandwiches I have had that came out in about 8 minutes. An excellent curried chicken salad and an equally good fresh roasted turkey with cranberry chutney.

Funky and crowded with good breakfast food thrown in for good measure. That's the Cafe Sarafornia way. There is table seating inside, a few table places outside and an old fashioned counter with diner stools to accommodate customers. Table service here is fast and friendly. Prices for the many special combos seem to be on the NYC high side but... More

I wanted to like this cute place, but like other reviewers I found the food just ok. I had the Brannans Benedict ($15) that came on 1 piece of toast and only 1 slice of avocado- it needed more. The eggs were a little overcooked, not runny. The bacon was good, thick and crispy. Hash browns needed to be browner.... More

Had a great breakfast here after a long evening celebrating our friend's wedding. Patti our server was great, very friendly, helpful and on it. The food was so fresh and breakfast came out pretty quick. Thank you for the great service and meal, we really enjoyed it.
