My husband and I had a very quick and nice breakfast here while in Calistoga. If you like diner food and comfort food then I am sure you would enjoy this place. Food and services is real quick! My husband ordered the Huevos rancheros and I ordered a pork hash special - the huevos I would recommend for your breakfast... More

They work hard here. One of the only breakfast choices in town. Lovely blueberry pancakes, eggs delicious and amazing bread used for the french toast. Good house coffee. I just wish most breakfast places would make bacon to order.

My husband and I came here for breakfast on a busy Sunday morning in late February. We sat at the counter and Ashlyn was our server. I heard her say to another customer that she was born happy and just woke up with a smile on her face. I believe that! She had an amazing personality! She was efficient, always... More

First time here. A crowded Saturday morning on a clear day in February. Fast service, good food, friendly staff. Not inexpensive and not a huge amount of food, but I did enjoy everything.

Stopped in for breakfast and enjoyed the food. Some guy paid for our breakfast and wanted us to pay it forward. Made our day to start off with generosity. They do have all sorts of food.

In downtown Calistoga, this place has a comfortable and cozy feel of an old and slightly funky traditional cafe. We had breakfast there after our first choice for this late morning meal had stopped serving breakfast. They claim to have the best Huevos Rancheros in Napa Valley. While these were the only ones in Napa Valley I tried, they definitely... More

Always enjoy breakfast at Sarafornia when in Napa Valley. Good, clean food. Crowded, but generally good service. If you're in the north end of the valley in the morning Sarafornia is a good choice for a traditional American style breakfast.

We have been here several times in past and enjoyed it immensely. This time really fell short. Ordered scrambled eggs and didn't know scrambled eggs could come so bland and "unscrambled" looking. Couldn't even finish. Bacon had to have been precooked and reheated. So disappointed. They offered me something else which was nice and service was friendly and attentive. Will... More
