Breakfast is amazing here, in St. Helena! Of course, you must try their English muffins that are now world famous. Thank you Oprah...Their bacon bread is also amazing. We live local so are constantly bringing their goodies home! Just go--in Napa too and soon Yountville!

I stopped in for a quick bite and ordered a ham and cheese croissant to go as there was very little seating available. I am sure the sandwich would have been delicious a day or two previous but it was just soooo dry! Not good...More
