We stumbled upon Emmy Lou’s on a recent trip to Napa. We arrived at brunch time and couldn’t decide on breakfast or lunch. The menu has the usual breakfast and lunch items, then we spotted two special items on the menu. Chicken enchiladas and chicken...More

Great little breakfast place in a nondescript strip mall. Everything our party of 4 ordered was really tasty and very generous. Beats the heck out of Denny's and much friendlier service.

Stopped in here based on locals' recommendations and glad we did. Good breakfast with a Mexican slant for a reasonable price. The value was unbeatable.

This "diner" has very good breakfast and is in a shopping center on Hwy 121. Very convenient. Good food, good service, easy in and out. Exterior looks like any other diner, but this one is very good.
