We came here as part of the tour and lunch and I think we got them on a bad day. Things seemed very unorganized and they seemed to be understaffed to handle the people that opted for lunch with their tour. For the bulk of...the time we were there, there was one person taking orders, making drinks and delivering orders. Eventually someone else came along to expedite the food and deliver orders. My food came out almost ten minutes after my husband's food. On to the food. I had the Italian sandwich and it was very good. The pasta salad that was on the side was fantastic. My husband opted for the other lunch option, the fried chicken sandwich, but it was a fried chicken plate when it came out. He still enjoyed it. I'd try it again and hope things were a bit better organized.More

My BFF came over to visit in Calistoga and we chose to get the CIA tour including lunch for $20/p. We were delighted with our tour guide Vicky, the history of the building, and the current curriculum. The Greystone red wine, quick lunch, and dessert...were perfect! Could not leave without an expresso Illy coffee to finish my brownie. The bakery cafe was worth the price and time spent. If money were not an issue, I would book my next 4 years in the CIAs curriculum!More

This makes for a fine lunch stop but isn't anything special. I had the reuben sandwich and my wife had the pho. We have no complaints.

We had a pita hummus sandwich and a Rueben. Both would rate very good. One sandwich came with a soup, which was not very good. We had wine sampler, which was fairly priced, and was just that 'fair'.

This is a beautiful place with top quality products and excellent service. Really interesting and a place every foody visiting Napa should go for breakfast or just a bite.

We visited the Culinary Institute of America. While there we went to their nice cafe - The Bakery Cafe by illy. We enjoyed a good cup of coffee. They also had some splendid holiday candies. The seating area is pleasant.

We opposed in here while wine tasting and it was great. Bathe menu was small, but there was soup, salad and a sandwich (possibly more than one of each, but not many choices). Great desserts, too. It was really neat to eat at the Culinary...Institute! (FYI, no need to bus your table when you are finished eating!)More

We were there to check out the culinary school for our son but this cafe hit the spot. Everything is made by the students. The chocolates were gorgous and delicious. We had a few pastries and coffee and they reasonably priced.
