The menu sounds great but when you get the food you have to wonder what the chef was thinking? Terrible! Half raw burger, lukewarm side dish, watery salad dressing- yuk. I wouldn't eat it if it was free.

This is a comfortable diner. It's a great place for a hearty breakfast--they offer great variety. It's clearly a favourite with locals as well.

We eat breakfast here every time we visit Calistoga (despite the lines on the weekends) and always get fast service and great filling food! It's family friendly too! We love the Italian sausages.

Had breakfast here. Not the cleanest place, food was OK, coffee not so good. Probably are much better places to breakfast in Calistoga.

Lots of people here for a late breakfast/brunch. Nice menu and friendly service. A nice casual place to relax with a bloody mary.

Good little diner. The omelette had a little more oil than I care for, but was tasty. Pretty yummy overall! Great service!

An excellent time. It took a while to get a table (especially on weekends). We went in for breakfast, but their lunch menu was just as extensive and mouth watering. The initial service was prompt as was the meal. It was hot and delicious as...More

I had the Portobello Mushroom Burger and liked it with the extra veggies. Very Tasty !! My Mother had the Lamb Burger. She couldn't even finish it; it was so dry and not much taste of lamb.

Two of us went for breakfast. My Friend got a vegetarian scramble which must have had 10 different vegies in it. She liked it a lot. It came with some decent toast. The coffee was okay and not a winner, so we then ordered ice...More

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.
