This was the second time we had brunch at Napa General Store and if we visit Napa for a third time, we’ll be back again! My husband had the paleo breakfast both trips, I did the pancakes the first time and the brioche French toast...this time and ommmggg that was one of the best French toasts I’ve ever had! Highly recommend brunch here, sit on the patio, and shop the cute store after!More

Thanks for the wonderful review Emily! So glad you enjoyed both your visits - our French Toast is very popular and I'm a big fan of the Paleolithic scramble. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Best Jim

We were four for Saturday brunch on the patio. Very pretty setting. Two paleo breakfasts, one regular scramble, one Chinese chicken salad. Portions were large but all plates were cleaned so the food must have been pretty good. Tables could have been a bit further...apart for my socially distancing tastes, but the patio was not full for most of our time there. We were not rushed to leave, which was very nice, and were able to sit and visit with our friends.More

Home fries and eggs Benedict, a classic breakfast got us off to a great fulfilling day! Outdoor seating is available in lieu of covid. Enjoy the Napa river and proximity to downtown.

We were the first customers after they re-opened following a couple month hiatus. The store has been re-decorated and looks wonderful. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and the breakfast did not disappoint. I had the Eggs Benedict and it was perfect. The Hollandaise...was tasty and creamy and the eggs were cooked perfectly. My wife enjoyed her “Vintners Breakfast”. French toast, scrambled eggs with rustic potatoes. The service was impeccable and despite Covid Mitigation’s we almost felt back to normal. Because it was our anniversary they brought of complimentary chocolate filled beignets. Brought me back to Café Du Monde in New Orleans. I would recommend this beautiful place to anyone.More

As soon as I stepped inside the door, I immediately knew that Napa General Store was my kind of place! Located on Napa’s Riverfront in the historic Napa Mill, it combines shopping and dining into one casual, welcoming yet upscale experience. I could have spent...all afternoon on their lovely patio, but due to our limited time we settled on lunch to go. The food is delicious – freshly prepared with quality ingredients. As for shopping, Napa General Store carries unique items that make browsing fun. Don’t miss this charming store in downtown Napa. We look forward to returning on our next Napa visit.More

Everything about Napa General Store is awesome. The food is absolutely delicious and the staff and service are so courteous and efficient. They are taking the Covid-19 protocols very seriously. And after a great meal the store has such interesting and unique items. One of...my favorite places!More

Napa General Store has a great patio for outdoor dining, and is a place we turn to for lunch on occasion. There are some interesting things on the lunch menu that we enjoy- the Chinese Chicken Salad, Chopped Salad, and burger come to mind. Unfortunately,...the food is inconsistent and sometimes disappointing. One visit you might enjoy a great salad, the next visit the salad comes with the dressing. Little inconsistencies like this keep us from giving a higher rating, but the location and ambience are worth checking out.More

A convenient location to eat and shop and the food was pretty good! They did a really great job with their COVID saftey precautions though. Temperature's were checked when we came in, handsanitizer stations were set up, and staff wore masks.

We were in search of the historical Mosaic fountain near a restaurant we saw seven years ago in Napa. We finally found it during COVID-19, thank heavens they were still serving outside. We took pictures of the fountain and enjoyed a delicious brunch. All of...this and a river view.More

Hi Pam - Yes the mosaic fountain is one of Napa's most beautiful historic works of art. So glad you found it again and enjoyed our garden patio for dining. We look forward to your next visit. Best Jim

I suggest you call the cafe directly to confirm your reservation. When we went there for lunch, we were a party of six and we didn't have a reservation but we readily got a table.
