This place was the breakfast spot to be. People were lined up outside waiting, but the wait wasn’t very long. The coffee was strong and the owner was hospitable. Food was okay, a little pricey for breakfast food though.

There are not a lot of breakfast locations in Calistoga but this is a good one. Menu was nice and the service was good.

You cannot go wrong for breakfast or lunch! We guessed we would like it and we were right! I had eggs, bacon, and incredibly good french toast with strawberries!

Thank you for your positive feedback! The Huevos Rancheros are one of the most popular items year round at the cafe.

In our recent visit to Calistoga, we had breakfast here 3 times. Food was very good and service was very efficient. Inside tends to be noisy and hectic, so we prefer the outside. Definitely recommend this place.

We had a so-so lunch, the food was better than the service. The price was reasonable and there were several different sandwich options.

Café Sarafornia is one of the last diners left in the Napa Valley and is a well-known (dare we say "famous"?) local destination for good food at a good value. We offer breakfast all day, and feature not only classic diner fare (Corned Beef Hash, Steak and Eggs, Chicken Fried Steak, 2+2+2) but our own take on breakfast and lunch with local Napa Valley flair (Brannan Benedict, Wildcat Scrambler, Palisades Omelet, Jalisco Wrap, and a Bombay Chicken Sandwich). Café Sarafornia is a great place get something to "soak up those tannins" before going wine tasting at one of the many world-class tasting rooms within walking distance in downtown Calistoga. Kids and families are always welcome.
