Came with friends. Loved the breakfast sandwich and the cinnamon roll. Very disappointed with the chocolate croissant. Putting the equivalent of one chocolate chip does not qualify as a chocolate croissant. Don't cheap out!

Great baked goods, friendly staff, and the English muffins are famous, though I haven't tried them. Just stay away from the coffee. No matter what size you buy, there's the same amount of coffee as the smallest size and the rest is milk. Silly, really.

Best place in town to get artisan breads, whether for sandwiches or dipping in olive oil. Their English muffins are large and legendary. A limited selection of breakfast pastries and cookies are also available. The deli prices are a little steep, and the cakes and...More

Model Bakery is right in the heart of Napa near Oxbow. It is a wonderful quick place to grab breakfast and eat outside on picnic tables. My favorite is their English muffins which are thicker than most you get at the grocery store. Spread your...More
