My friend and I got some coffee and split a veggie breakfast sandwich while waiting to check in for the wine train. It came on the famous english muffin and was definitely one of the best breakfasts I had during my SF girls weekend. There...More

Model bakery has delicious breads, sweets and sandwiches. The St Helena bakery is very cozy. I think the Napa bakery is more of an in and out.

Model is awesome! Always great with the daily baked goods and breakfast and lunch items. Friendly staff for the most part in the Napa bakery. Be prepared to wait in line in the morning for your coffee and morning bun. Worth the wait!

The Model Bakery has the best cookies I've ever tasted. I have had baked goods from most of the bakeries throughout the Napa Valley, and The Model Bakery's items are the most consistently delicious and visually appealing no matter what I order, especially their cookies.

We live in Napa and stop in a few times a week, mostly for their late bake baguette. It's the best for any meal or occasion. Their sandwiches are also great.

Model bakery English muffins are extraordinary ... small and fluffy like a donut, but look like a muffin! Bread is also excellent
