“Best bakery around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

English muffins are for real. They toast it for you and give you butter and jam.

Breakfast sandwiches and wraps are the best. So are the morning buns and danishes, etc.

“It is good.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

I have been to Model several times. The only things I have had in the bakery that were incomparable are the English Muffin; the english Muffins are fantastic and I have not had anything like them anywhere else. You can order anything on those things; they are so good!!! The other item is the parfait; the parfait is absolutely delicious. The bread, cookies and desserts are all average. If you want an amazing dessert, try Sweetie Pies or Alexis Baking company.

“The best breakfast sandwiches!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

After walking by the bakery the first day we were in Napa, we were impressed by the line of people out the door and the amount of people eating their breakfast sandwiches. The next day we went to try them out for ourselves. The wait wasn't too bad and it was worth it. Delicious breakfast sandwiches and pastries (we tried the raisin bread and cinnamon twist). The iced coffee my husband ordered was overpriced (we brought our own coffee the next day) but excellent food. Go there for breakfast!

“BEST BREAKFAST AND BAKED GOODS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

My family and I went to Model because of its excellent reviews. Let me tell you, none of us were disappointed. The chorizo torta was flavorful and fresh, the skinny breakfast needed a dash of salt but was wonderful and the ciabatta was divine. Coffee was hot, bold and fresh. Also got a molasses ginger cookie. To die for. Went there for breakfast the next day. Tried the chipotle sandwich and put it on English muffin. Seriously, BEST ENGLISH MUFFIN EVER. Also got the chocolate rad cookie, gooey and heaven-sent. DON'T SKIP THIS PLACE!

“The Best Thing I've Ever Had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

Our friends from the Bay Area introduced us to the english muffin from Model Bakery. It is literally the best thing I've ever had...ever. They have Blue Bottle coffee and plenty of other baked goods but do not miss the toasted english muffin with a pat of butter.
