This spot is really fun for shopping. There are many wine related gifts that you won’t find elsewhere. It has a great vibe.

Got there after 3 and the kitchen was closed. The store has many unique items. Wish could have eaten there. Nice patio on the river.

This was pretty near our accommodation and had been recommended by our hosts. We were not disappointed, a nice breakfast which set us up for a day of wine tasting in the area. Not quite a 5, but better than an 4 - 4.5 circles...More

We were here on Sunday for lunch and they only serve brunch but they did have a couple of sandwhiches and a few salads. The Chinese chicken salad was good but not much chicken. My husband really liked the chicken sandwhich.

Best place in Napa for brunch. You can sit outside beside the Napa River and have brunch or lunch in a beautiful setting. It is our spot to take out of town guests or meet friends for lunch. Gift shop is excellent, too.

Nice selection of items to remind you of your trip to Napa. Also a great casual restaurant with reasonable prices and a really nice patio.

Loved it. The Napa Scrambled was perfect. Scrumptious breakfast potatoes, applewood bacon were the highlights. The portions were large enough for my wife and I to split it. We’ll be bacl.

I suggest you call the cafe directly to confirm your reservation. When we went there for lunch, we were a party of six and we didn't have a reservation but we readily got a table.
