“Great breakfast....STRONG coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

Breakfast was very good but a tad on the pricey side. French toast with no meat was $8.25 Coffee was VERY strong.

“A great, cozy place for breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Our hotel gave us vouchers for breakfast to Café Sarafornia. It seems to be the place for breakfast in Calistoga. Both locals and tourists like the fare there. The servers were very pleasant and efficient. Getting a table may require a wait. When you find a table, you may need a shoe horn to get into and out of your chair. Don't eat with your elbows out. But the food and service are worth the cramped quarters.

“A cute diner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

Good value breakfast in a typical American diner. Food is good and there is a lot of choice. We were there on a week day outside touristic season and the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. Great service.

“Good food, fast service on a busy day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

We had breakfast here on a busy morning. Service was fast and friendly, the coffee was excellent, and the food was good.

We might have returned, but repairs to the hood over the cooking area were to be made the next day.

Note: portions are small and served on a luncheon-sized rather that a larger dinner-sized plate. That said, the food was good and hot, the strawberry jam was just tart/sweet perfect, and the coffee was good and bottomless.

“Excellent Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

Be prepared for a wait, as the place is pretty small and very busy. However, it was worth it. Food was excellent. French toast and omlettes were great. Wait staff could have been a bit more friendly. It was hard to get the watiress' attention.
