Had a great breakfast here. Old time diner--huge portions and frequent coffee refills. Obviously a place for 'locals' with good reason.

There is a throwback five-n-dime vibe to this place that gives it a certain charm. Every kind of omelette is on the menu for breakfast. I understand they serve breakfast at any time too. A little pricey, but delicious.

After walking thru town and looking at the menus at a number of restaurants, we selected Cafe Sarafornia for lunch. While it has an extensive lunch menu, we decided to have breakfast food for lunch. My wife loved her pancakes while I had Corned Beef hash and eggs with the biggest chunks of Corned Beef that I can remember. A... More

If it was based solely on food I would rate 5 stars. Unfortunately our server was terrible. 1st. didn't have any recommendations, and when asked about the homemade cream of mushroom soup, replied "I don't know I don't eat mushrooms" 2nd. When food was delivered, never asked if there was anything else she could get us. 3rd. Never came back... More

We've been in Calistoga for three days and, for the most part, the food has been average. Except for Cafe Sarafornia. Breakfast there was really good. The breakfast burrito was tasty and hot. The pancakes were excellent. The service was excellent. Cafe Sarafornia is definitely the place to go in Calistoga.

We ate breakfast at Sarafornia twice. The first breakfast was delicious and the second breakfast must have been cooked by a different person because it was mediocre. But, I'd still recommend it. Expect to spend at least $11.00 per person for your breakfast platter.

Absolutely great food and great service. This is the service other restaurants in the area should aim to model after. The food was great; and the history of the name and restaurant owners is fabulous. A must for breakfast.

Breakfast here with four people was extremely expensive. Food was ok..nothing special. But we didn't return because we discovered there are many better choices either across the street or in the next block.

I have only been here for breakfast, and it is consistently good! Nothing creative on the menu, but that is why it is so impressive, as they do basic dishes so well you want to keep coming back. Best in town!! Always busy, so get there early. Well located. After breakfast do some shopping!

The breakfast was great. Our waitress wasn't very attentive but the place was full. My only complaint was the laminated card was sticky with grease. They need to wash them every now and then.

Thank tecoud
