Great spot for all kinds of bread, pastries and dessert items. I am obcessed with the English muffins. Dangerously yummy toasted. Nothing else will satisfy you afterwards.

Model Bakery has been a staple in Napa Valley for years. Besides the English muffins, the Asiago cheese bread is to die for. The bakery by the Oxbow Market is a small, but wonderful place. Also next door is a remarkable butcher/charcuterie shop, The Fatted Calf. We're very fortunate that many of the local independent markets also carry Model breads.... More

Came here on our trip to Napa, loved everything about this little bakery. Great option for quick breakfast sandwiches as well.

Great bakery/sandwich shop on main Street St Helena. Well known for Danish Pastry and bread. Stop in for coffee and a pastry.

Always dependable and first rate baked goods in a most convenient location. This is not as much of a social center as the St. Helena location, only because it is surrounded by all of the delights of the Oxbow market, and more popular with tourists than locals. But still very good.

My wife loves this bakery, and for good reason. She also has their book! This is a go-to bakery, for multiple visits, each time we visit Napa.

My daughter & I shared a breakfast sandwich with scrambled eggs, potatoes, chipotle mayo and avocado one morning while I was visiting. The sandwich was delicious. We were very lucky because we hit it at a perfect time and didn't have to wait on line which is usually the case, I've been told.

They have great English muffins. However, they have a very bizarre policy of one can only purchase a dozen at one time.

This place does baked goods right. They have bread, pastries, cookies, and a bunch of other items. The cheese Danish, cinnamon rolls, chocolate cookies are great.

We stayed in a room with a kitchen so we cooked breakfast every morning, but we still went up to model bakery for a daily pastry. Everything we tried was delicious.
