I've had breakfast and lunch here. Both were really great meals. My husband and I opened a new office not far from here and this has become our go-to place for us and business lunches. When we're there for business they always make sure we...have a quiet area for our little meetings. We love this placeMore

The setting is beautiful, the service is great and the food is quite good. This is one of those places you go to a couple times a year, but you definitely remember it

This was my first wine experience in California and it did not disappoint. The view of the gardens was so pretty and the weather was perfect with a breeze. The waiter was very knowledgeable. We ordered the petit filet, Handmade burger, and huevos rancheros. ALL...excellent choices! We also tried the bellini that was great too!More

Very comfy place with fantastic food. The breakfast was not only delicious but huge. They make the potatoes different than anybody else and they were great.

The home made scones were to die for. The breakfast was eclectic and delicious with home grown items, fresh farm eggs, and delicious coffee. We loved it.

Even when I don't stay overnight at Vintners Inn, I regularly pop into the River Vine Cafe, recently modernized and renovated, when I'm in the area. The menu for breakfast/brunch is fantastic, and so is the lunch menu. It's not inexpensive but the food quality...and the service are top notch. Example: order buttermilk pancakes and you get REAL maple syrup, not sugar syrup. The eggs are delicious. If a Reuben is what you want, they even make their own pastrami. The coffee is excellent. If you have a hangover and need a bloody mary in the morning, they provide that, too. The service in the cafe is excellent and all the tables for two are all next to windows, and the windows can be opened or closed if you like. You can also eat outdoors if you prefer. The cafe is part of the John Ash & Co restaurant operation so the quality is 4 star.More

This cafe is open for breakfast, lunch and brunch on weekends. It serves the Vintners Inn guests but welcomes anyone. It is a quiet, serene spot for a casual breakfast, lunch or brunch (weekends). Great for stopping in before a day of winery touring, it...really sets the mood for a great day. Recently had a delicious brunch there with out of town guests. The patio was pleasant, service was good and the food was delicious. It is not a huge menu but had enough variety for us. I will be back now that I have discovered it.More

We had brunch at the Vintners Inn River Vine Café. We sat outside and had a lovely view of vineyards and flowers on the grounds. The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and it was reasonably priced.
