The wine bar is great and is program related to local university. Nice selection of wines and knowledgeable servers. Also has a unique gift shop with unusual Napa offerings.

Had a tasty breakfast within a casual California laid back farmhouse setting. Highly recommend the cornmeal pancakes...very light, slightly crunchy with sweet maple syrup. Add in the delicious thyme-seasoned apple chicken sausage...yum-o! Companion enjoyed a scramble with spinach, mushrooms and cheese and it was equally good. Afterwards, take time to peruse the general store which is chockfull of wine décor,... More

We were recommended this by our hotel, and don't hesitate to recommend it on. Half café, half shop, situated in an old building, this is a charming place, especially for breakfast. Food was delicious, and staff attentive and very friendly. Wouldn't hesitate to go again.

Mon thru Fri build your own omelette. Freshest ingredients including several different cheeses along with goat and feta for those that maybe lactose intolerant.

This is my go-to breakfast spot because it's downtown yet away from crowds, noise, and it sits along the Napa river. The breakfast here is prepared the best way in this town. Check out the menu and take notice of the ingredients. This is a foodie restaurant. I tried all the dishes and settled with the Napa Scramble: farm-fresh eggs,... More

Lots of stuff to see in the Napa General Store and the breakfast was served quickly. I never order pancakes but cornmeal sounded interesting. They were very good with the whipped butter and syrup.

The Napa General Store is super cute! It is in a good location and the food was good. I got the Cobb salad with bacon vinaigrette and my sister got the smoked salmon flatbread. When we come back to Napa, this will definitely be on our list.

Found this on trip advisor, I had the Ranchero breakfast and it was really good. My husband had the chicken sandwich have with fries it was big! He said one of the best meals so far in California. The blueberry coffee cake was delicious. Definitely would come back. Sat outside beautiful patio with trees and flowers.
