About
Café Sarafornia is one of the last diners left in the Napa Valley and is a well-known (dare we say "famous"?) local destination for good food at a good value. We offer breakfast all day, and feature not only classic diner fare (Corned Beef Hash, Steak and Eggs, Chicken Fried Steak, 2+2+2) but our own take on breakfast and lunch with local Napa Valley flair (Brannan Benedict, Wildcat Scrambler, Palisades Omelet, Jalisco Wrap, and a Bombay Chicken Sandwich). Café Sarafornia is a great place get something to "soak up those tannins" before going wine tasting at one of the many world-class tasting rooms within walking distance in downtown Calistoga. Kids and families are always welcome.

The best choice in Calistoga for a healthy and substantial breakfast. Try their huevos rancheros for a tasty local favorite! Service is attentive and food is very good, albeit a tad pricey.

We had just dropped a friend off at the Napa Valley marathon start and were looking for an early Sunday morning breakfast in Calistoga. We spotted Sarafornia; the name, space and menu held promise so we decided to go on in. Everything was delicious- we’re...More

What a cute, quaint spot. We stopped in for breakfast. Great coffee and even better Lox! The couples story illustrates the walls. Very homey vibes. We will visit again when in Calistoga!

This old school diner is high quality! Don't be fooled by the kitch. The omelets are properly made, the tea and coffee is good quality, the baked goods are great! They also have a some innovative breakfast twists. Good portions and fast service!

This is such a nice atmosphere so try it but my meal was inedible. I ordered the Huevos Rancheros. They took it back and did not charge me. Waitress was extremely nice and fast. I'd just stick to the basics here.

We were recommended to try this place from our front desk person at our hotel. Food was over done and tasteless. What we call hangover food. Also, I detest any establishment that offers those tiny plastic creamers.

Delicious breakfast every morning we were there! Open at 7:30 AM. We had the salmon omelet, the Brannan’s Benedict, the frittata, and the huevos rancheros. The good basic breakfast fried food was well enhanced by the fresh extras like avocado and fruit. The oatmeal bowl...More
