Great place to pick up Napa and winery themed souvenirs. Beautiful and unique Napa T-shirts and artwork. A definite must-see if you are in downtown Napa.

This is our third time visiting this establishment while in the area. Our party of six came for breakfast and was greated by a terse greeter. The feeling she gave was that she wanted to not only discourage us from putting our names on the waiting list but that she didn't want to seat our group. Despite her rudeness, the... More

We all enjoyed our lunch at the general store. There was a large menu and we had sandwiches, quesadillas, pizza from the wood fired oven and a vegetarian salad. Portions were large and everything was tasty. There is a wide range of local wines and beers. The store has interesting souvenirs, gifts and art.

We ate lunch here the day we arrived. Fun, good food on the patio along the river walk. They also have a very nice gift shop with some very cool things for purchase. Items were a little pricey, but very good quality.

Cute general store with wines, wine related merchandise, gifts, and souvenirs. A little high on some of their markup.

We always like to make a trip in to see what's new. I fell in love with a hand carved pig bowl who is now gracing us with ChrIstmas M&MS. Napa General store is a fun stop while out walking the dog.

We started our day with Sunday breakfast/brunch at the Napa General Store. I had the Vintner's Breakfast. The French toast was outstanding. My husband had chicken & waffles & a mimosa. The waffle & mimosa were fantastic as well. It was great to walk around the store afterwards. We'd definitely go back.

Thank tlt8
