In downtown Calistoga, this place has a comfortable and cozy feel of an old and slightly funky traditional cafe. We had breakfast there after our first choice for this late morning meal had stopped serving breakfast. They claim to have the best Huevos Rancheros in Napa Valley. While these were the only ones in Napa Valley I tried, they definitely... More

Always enjoy breakfast at Sarafornia when in Napa Valley. Good, clean food. Crowded, but generally good service. If you're in the north end of the valley in the morning Sarafornia is a good choice for a traditional American style breakfast.

Couldn't even finish. Bacon had to have been precooked and reheated. So disappointed. They offered me something else which was nice and service was friendly and attentive. Will... More

Our breakfast was amazing. I had french toast but not just any ordinary recipe. It was Black Cherry & Rum with toasted almonds. Everything is fresh. Service is fast. Coffee is great. You can expect your ordinary menu item to be extraordinary.

The sausage tasted old (I couldn't eat it), and the rest of my dish was bland. My friend ordered the salmon and they described it as plastic and sorry they went ahead and ate it. Overall it was very disappointing.

My husband and I just drove the California Coast with a day trip in Calistoga. After enjoying an epic mud bath, we took the advice of our spa therapist and went to Cafe Sarafornia for breakfast, and what followed was straight out of a movie! Picture a bustling, lively cafe where folks are smiling and chatting and intoxicated by delicious... More

Very friendly atmosphere. Food is good with ample portions. It has a great small town feel to the interior and the service is excellent.
