“Super lunch spot on the Napa River.”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

I always thought the General Store was just that--a store--but darned if it doesn't have a perfectly delightful restaurant in the back. You can eat inside at one of the comfortable tables in the smallish dining room, or enjoy the lovely (and larger) seating area outside. The service is friendly and warm, and there are lots of interesting items on the menu, as well as several daily specials. We had two of the specials, an Asian-inspired salad with chicken, and a chicken wrap that was perfectly delicious. The wraps were served with excellent hand-cut fries. Really good food in pleasant surroundings.

“Perfect Way to Start the Day”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Charming setting, great location, excellent service, and even better food for a good value, and a PALEO SCRAMBLE. Really? Breakfast heaven. They hit all the right marks including pasture raised bacon, local, organic ingredients. Everyone else enjoyed their non-paleo options, too. The fruit compote that came with the french toast and the hot chocolate got particularly rave reviews from my dining companions. And the coffee was excellent.
