Hearty, rustic delicious breakfast in the heart of Calistoga. I had the French toast with eggs and smoked chicken apple sausage. It was a very nice meal!

You can get your Keto brekkie here: 2 eggs over easy, with a side salad, avocado and bacon - no problem! Located right on the main drag. Locals and tourists mingle, modern diner food done well.

This place is right downtown Calistoga, near the Roman Spa mineral pool hotel. Stopped by for early lunch/late breakfast. Had a salad and from breakfast specials menu a shrimp and artichoke omelet. Both very tasty.

Nice menu selection for breakfast and great service. The omelets had a great flavor. Prices are moderate for the area.

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.
