Just driving past The Fremont Diner I would ever consider stopping. Fortunately, I wasn't driving. This place looks a dive, but the food and service are first class. We had good beer and excellent wine. My wife had a burger and I had the brisket hash breakfast dish. Both were excellent. The seating is outside under umbrellas. I don't know... More

Its a cute diner with outdoors dining. Located on the road between Sonoma and Napa. I had passed it many times but my son invited us there for a belated Mothers Day lunch. We really enjoyed the atmosphere. Great staff and friendly. They had a little wait because its popular. It was Sunset (Magazine) Celebration weekend so it may have... More

The atmosphere was comfortable and the food was very good. This place gets busy so plan ahead in order to avoid the wait. Although, it may be nice to explore a nearby winery while you wait...

Why do I love the Fremont diner? I love the old bluesy country music they have playing and the hot, fresh, steaming, just the right strength press pot coffee brought to your table in a stainless steal thermos, the eclectic (for around here) menu, the light, fluffy biscuits, the thick, smokey bacon, shrimp 'n grits, chicken and a crispy waffle,...

Don't expect the same quality that made this your favorite in the past. They have changed several of our favorite recipes (for the worse!) without explanation. When I wrote t management, to their credit, they answered me, but the answer was simply "we're sorry you were disappointed."

I'm back in Montréal from my trip to California and I still have the taste of Fremont Diner bacon. We went for breakfast before heading to the Big Sur. Pancakes, french toast and bacon. Coffee is also very good. Vintage and antique look is perfect for that spot! You're in Napa, you have to stop there!

It's a fun and cozy place with indoor and outdoor seating. It can be crowded at times, especially on the weekends. Cute country decor and atmosphere. A great menu and tasty food. A fun stop.

This place is always crowded and average wait time (for us at least) is 1 hour. Extensive menu for breakfast and lunch. Coffee is strong. Pastrami sandwich delicious- always worth the wait and the perfect place to fill up before an afternoon wine tasting!

I would have never stopped here if not for a recommendation from a friend. No reservations so prepare to stand in line on the weekend. Super rustic (we sat in a gravel area under a tent on a picnic table). Fun atmosphere, funky decor. Amazing service. Not speedy when they are busy, maybe they have a small kitchen. But the... More
