My husband enjoyed his breakfast, the usual 2 eggs over medium with dark toast. I tried something a bit more exotic with spinach and cheese and apple chicken sausage but was not thrilled. Coffee was strong, Service was attentive. I would go back and try something else next time.

OK, it is hard to mess up breakfast. But it is harder to make a truly great breakfast. Sarafornia does a great job making breakfast memorable. The food is all fresh, home made just a bit unique. We have breakfast there every time we go to Calistoga and it is always memorable.

We ate at Cafe Sarafornia 4 out of 5 breakfasts while in town, and we wish it would have been every morning. Food is good and you have so much to choose from. Everything was cooked perfectly and to order. Good coffee-strong but flavorful. Service was very good, too. Decent prices.

Serves a great breakfast with plenty of choices. Have returned every time we have stayed at Calistoga Spa Hot Springs. Popular with the locals too!

I ate breakfast at Cafe Sarafornia twice during my recent stay in Calistoga. The food was good, plentiful, and reasonably priced. A great combination in my book! The place isn't very big, but it wasn't crowded on the days and times I visited.

Loved stopping here for a hearty breakfast before wine tasting. The staff is friendly, even though they seem rushed. The place was full of people enjoying the good food. I get the feeling that even though it's on the main drag, there are a lot of locals that come here as well. The staff seemed to know a lot of... More

This place is always busy with a line. Ok, not great, food. Standard breakfast offerings. Service isn't great they should hire more staff . Nice outdoor tables if weather is good

Recommended by couple we visited Calistoga with. Must have just been a bad day as this is a favorite spot for many. Service was average and there were problems with our order. I would give it another shot next time I am in the area.

The hotel we stayed at recommended this place for breakfast. She was right, their menu has a lot of breakfast items to offer. And they are reasonably priced. What's disappointing is the service... It was slow and worst - the lady who attended to us seemed unhappy. She had a permanent scowl on her face the entire time she was... More

Fresh squeezed orange juice; ultra fresh ingredients; delicious breakfast! We've been coming here for over 20 years and it is our "go to" place whenever we are in the area.
