Very busy and hopping place to have brunch. It's got the small town charm of career waitresses with gourmet ingredients. Heck, three of the 4 in our party are from NorthEast USA and know of Saratoga Springs, NY.

We had breakfast here every morning, and although I put on a few pounds, I still hanker after the food.

I ordered a scramble with several items, one of which was chorizo. I was not aware that the chorizo would come smothered in a less than desirable tomato sauce, which tasted like spaghetti sauce. When I asked about it the waitress said that's how it...More

Slow service, served wrong order, cheese inside omelette cold - not melted, toast not toasted! Soggy hashbrowns, bitter (old) coffee. Used to be good. No more. Take a pass.

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.
