“Great breakfast to start the day!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Went here before hitting the wineries and the breakfast was awesome, I had the veggie breakfast sandwich on a fresh english muffin with avocado, fried eggs and a hash brown, SO YUMMY!! My husband loved the egg and chorizo tostada (or similar) which he loved as well. Nice outdoor seating available...

“Not sure why it is #1”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

English muffins looked pretty good, but there were much better looking treats inside to Oxbow Market. Carmelita bar was pretty good, but a little dry. Nothing to write home about.

“Great breakfast place!”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Stopped here for a quick breakfast on our first day in Napa. Breakfast sandwich with the English muffin was very good. Even nicer they had tables outside so we could sit and eat our sandwiches and enjoy the beautiful day!

“Pretty Good”
Reviewed 29 April 2014 via mobile

We stopped for a light bite before starting our day wine tasting. I had the croissant with green chili, my aunt had the spinach croissant and the guys had a slice of pizza, everything was pretty goo, but wish my croissant on the inside was a but warmer, but it filled the void.

“What's the fuss?”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Allegedly fabulous english muffins were...fine. But not noteworthy. Breakfast sandwich was, again, fine, but not remarkable in any way. There are better bakeries, better breakfast joints. If you're curious, go ahead, but lower your expectations. Another case of mass-hysteria, where they hype far outstrips the reality.

Service was atrocious - we were next in the single line, when a girl opens a 2d register. At the moment we arrive she is called to address a coffee urn refill, and rather than let us know we should reclaim our spot in line, she leaves us hanging while several other patrons behind us are served. Just sloppy and thoughtless service - we can't know she'll be more than just a moment, but she could. And the gal at the other register could, and should, have waved us over.

I can't see any reason to eat there.
