However, they close at 2pm on Saturdays! Calistoga is a town were couples retreat. People sleep in or want breakfast type food later in the day. You can't claim to serve breakfast all day when you close at 2pm. We asked the waitress and she said, 2pm.

Food was okay, nothing special or worth claiming it was yummy. The coffee was too strong but drinkable. We ordered egg scrambles with apple sausage and were not impressed. Also, the waffle was not crispy, a little soggy. The waitress seemed in a rush and not very friendly but she could have been busy and lacked the friendliness you expect from a small town.

I wouldn't wait for a table, I would not bother eating here again. But I won't give them a low rating perhaps, "this is as good, as it gets", in Calistoga.

Seated in this neat well known breakfast/lunch place, and in walked Adam Sandler and the rest of the movie crew. The people did not bother them and it was a very special experience to be among the stars. Oh, do not miss the crab cakes.

We stopped here for lunch on a rainy March day, 3 of us. They serve breakfast all day. It is a fairly small facility, with a counter in the center - sort of like the old diners. We had really good service, the food was great. One of us had pancakes with pecans and whatnot, and I think they liked it because the plate was clean. I had their signature wrap (forget the name), had a Mexican flavor to it - very good. And the other meal was the tuna melt, with a fantastic soup that resembled tortilla soup. Overall very good, and we would come back.

Unique, but delicious menu.
It's enjoyed equally by the local residents and scores of tourists.
Be prepared to wait at busy times, but it's worth it.

This place has been around since the 1940's. Excellent food. All the locals are here and the place is packed. Great specials and loved the vegetable hash. They even had gluten free bread. The counter is a great place to sit to see all the running around by the friendly, fast staff.
