Went for breakfast. Decent food (and offer gluten free bread) and okay service. Does get busy. Centrally located.

Very friendly atmosphere. Food is good with ample portions. It has a great small town feel to the interior and the service is excellent.

Came here for a quick breakfast/brunch before going to the Geysers and wine tasting and tour of the Castello di Amorosa. We had great service- it is a cozy local place- not fancy, but good food and coffee!

And also some pretty good food too! Ate here a couple of times over New Year's weekend. Friendly and efficient staff. Great variety on the menu. All day breakfast. Don't pass this one by!

Had fond memories of the place; however, on the Monday after Christmas breakfast was disappointing. Coffee was tasteless, beef hash was served in a bowl with eggs on top making it hard to eat. Eggs over-medium still had runny whites. The cheese blintzes were very good and covered with a large mound of fresh fruit. The servers and owner(?) kept... More

Bustling little place, and very festive. We enjoyed our mini breakfasts.......french toast for husband, pancake for me.......with pineapple and lemon ricotta, an egg and a strip of bacon. Good service, too!

I've been here a few times whenever we're in Calistoga, and Cafe Sarafornia has always impressed and never disappointed. It's a bit on the expensive side for breakfast fare, but the menu is really diverse and verifiably delicious. Go for the Heuvos Rancheros if you haven't set your sights on anything else.

We had breakfast here two mornings when we were in Calistoga. Menu has a lot of variety and they accommodated gluten free bread easily. Possibly food was a little bland but it was quick and filling.

My husband enjoyed his breakfast, the usual 2 eggs over medium with dark toast. I tried something a bit more exotic with spinach and cheese and apple chicken sausage but was not thrilled. Coffee was strong, Service was attentive. I would go back and try something else next time.
