Great little place. Good food and great service. My husband accidentally gave the waitress too much money. She chased us down to give us our money back. She could have kept it and we would never have known. It’s nice to know there are still...More

Classic American diner with plenty of options and great service. Really friendly staff. The place is popular so may have to wait a short time for a table.

This place was the breakfast spot to be. People were lined up outside waiting, but the wait wasn’t very long. The coffee was strong and the owner was hospitable. Food was okay, a little pricey for breakfast food though.

You cannot go wrong for breakfast or lunch! We guessed we would like it and we were right! I had eggs, bacon, and incredibly good french toast with strawberries!

Description
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.
