This is not a fancy restaurant but the food is excellent. I choose the lamb burger and it was delicious. My wife had a salad made with fresh, very tasty produce. The portion are more than generous and the prices are more than reasonable. The service was fast, courteous and efficient

These were one of the best eggs Benedict I've ever had. He had roasted tomato and fresh avocado which made them delicious. This is definitely a local place and we were well served and staff was very friendly.

We were driving through St. Helena and needed a quick breakfast stop. We called ahead and ordered a breakfast sandwich...it was amazing! We would definitely order one again and someday we hope to take the time to eat at this friendly little restaurant.

I ate the bagel and lox with capers. It was delicious! The staff was very attentive with refilling coffee and making sure we were OK. I was with a party of 8 and they had us seated and eating in no time. Everyone seemed to enjoy their food. I know I did!

Hearty breakfast and efficient staff. I had the fresh fruit and yogurt plate. The bread is rustic. I had toasted rye. My cousin had the bagle and lox. Looked fresh with tomatoes and capers.

Here is a great little place for breakfast or a quick lunch. Family flair and story and the locals come here too. Burger was perfect. I had a soup and salad as I eat light. Perfect. Quaint. Friendly. Fast.

Roasted tomatoes are amazing. My favorite breakfast spot in the Valley. Great low key diner style place with hearty (read: Hangover) breakfast food.

Breakfast was good, you get plenty of food but it was a little pricey for breakfast. Very friendly people.
