About
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.

Very nice breakfast with a lot of great options. However, the place has a great reputation and is very popular with locals and tourists alike. So, expect a long wait, longer than half hour. Worth the wait.

Seeing a line for breakfast we imagined the food would be great, but we were wrong. It's not bad it's just ok and nothing special. If you want basic eggs and hash browns and bacon-it's fine. My friend had the "huevos rancheros" which were bland,...More

Classic American diner with plenty of options and great service. Really friendly staff. The place is popular so may have to wait a short time for a table.
