When I’m doubt ask a local so I did, and the kind man at ACE said this was the spot I was seeking for beyond basic breakfast. Clearly family owned - the pride of Service (and family history) was evident, and the food very good....More

Sarafornia is a quintessential Calistoga cafe. All of their food fare is well done. This is our go-to breakfast spot. If the weather permits, grab a seat outside.

This restaurant serves one of the best breakfasts in town. Although crowded at some times, the wait is definitely worth it!

Café Sarafornia is one of the last diners left in the Napa Valley and is a well-known (dare we say "famous"?) local destination for good food at a good value. We offer breakfast all day, and feature not only classic diner fare (Corned Beef Hash, Steak and Eggs, Chicken Fried Steak, 2+2+2) but our own take on breakfast and lunch with local Napa Valley flair (Brannan Benedict, Wildcat Scrambler, Palisades Omelet, Jalisco Wrap, and a Bombay Chicken Sandwich). Café Sarafornia is a great place get something to "soak up those tannins" before going wine tasting at one of the many world-class tasting rooms within walking distance in downtown Calistoga. Kids and families are always welcome.
