Great bakery, try the apple fritters. Tasty breakfast foods like biscuits and gravy. Loud diner atmosphere. Floor untidy. Server didn't seemed thrilled to help us. If service were better it could be a real winner.

We have eaten there each time we are in Napa. The diner serves typical diner foods, but the bakery is the shining star! Donuts, apple fritters, cakes and so on. We were in Napa for seven days, and three of those day I drove over to the Buttercream Bakery for donuts! Love the maple frosted! In an age where many... More

The sausages were delicious! Twice as big as a breakfast link with a maple touch. Excellent chocolate and alot of it in the chocolate croissant. All the pastries are made visibly onsite and are top quality. The decor is straight out of the 1940's. All in great repair and authentically of the era. Open early. The waitress told me the... More

Great breakfasts, large portions, very busy, counter service available. Try the biscuits and gravy but only order the large portion if you are hungry. Favorite of locals for over 60 years.

This is just an amazing place. Excellent bakery with the best morning buns I've ever eaten. It has a large selection of favorite pastries which were inexpensive. The diner was a very busy place for breakfast on a holiday weekend. I enjoyed good pancakes, Peet's coffee, scrambled eggs and bacon. Went three times during the weekend I was in Napa.... More

This is based on a recent visit where we stopped by to pick up a dozen. Really good quality donuts and and great atmosphere. The reason for the 3 star is the crappy service at the donut counter. My prior visit I had someone who could barely communicate and this last time a big old girls who moved like a... More

This diner came highly recommended by the locals and after a morning ballooning, sans breakfast, the sights and smells of the bakery were a sweet welcome. While our tastebuds begged for the baked goods, we settled on the breakfast with visions of sweets to follow. This local haunt is charming, an oh so busy even on a week day. The... More

You don't come to the bakery or diner if you are on a diet. When I bring donuts or pastries to work or to some ones house I bring these. Everyone raves. My favorite is there buttermilk donut. But I don't discriminate. They make good cakes too. The breakfasts are good and hearty. Like I said, you don't come here... More

At 5:30 in the morning there was a lineup to get into this place. The prices are fair food is great. When you're there look up Carol behind the counter she'll take good care of you.
