Charming outdoor patio with great salads and a variety of other entrees for the entire family. Indoors has seating and a general store with some nice gift items. Need to walk down Main Street a ways to see it but worth the walk!

Ate here for lunch. They have a great selection on their menu to choose from. This place has a general selection of wine and kitchen accessories, along with some quirky items to take home as souvenirs.

Was moving cross-country and stayed in Napa for a few days to enjoy wineries, spas, and sights...Came across this hidden gem, which is basically a high end food court with neat décor, and awesome food and drinks. Loved it, especially the cheese bar.

We went late morning on a Tuesday, and it was not busy. I had the "Vintners Special", 2 fried eggs, 2 pieces of bacon and one piece of brioche French toast - for $15. Way overpriced. My eggs were overdone so I sent them back,...More

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.
