Great service - the lines can be long on weekend mornings - and it moves fast. There is outside seating or you can take your food into the oxbow market. The skinny breakfast sandwich is fantastic. Order holiday goodies in advance or they will run out. The english muffins are as good as they say. The sport Iced tea is... More

Everything is really really good and a few things are wowsers -- like the frosted duck cookies. Only problem is they run out of stuff, and the long lines out the door make that problem worse. But if you're an early riser on a weekend, you can do just fine in a very simple place.

It's not a good idea to write a review when you are angry. And I was angry when I left Model Bakery yesterday. I Decided that one bad experience shouldn't color my history with this good restaurant. However after returning this morning to give them a second chance my experience was virtually identical. I will make this short so that... More

Four of us had breakfast sandwiches at Model's on a Sunday morning. The chipotle sandwich and the breakfast sandwich on Model's homemade English muffin were both delicious and filling. We got a cinnamon roll to go, and,even after reheating it, the roll was still soft with a lot of cinnamon filling. We also picked up a baguette and some English... More

It's pretty terrible that I live just over a mile from the Oxbow location, the whole family loves their breakfast sandwiches. We have mailed a 1/2 dozen English muffins to a grandmother in Salt Lake and brought a 1/2 dozen to s dying grandmother in LA, we pick them up for swim meets, We always use them for eggs Benedict,...

We were just in Napa and had breakfast ar Model. Delicious! Their English muffin is the best I have ever had. Their pastries, breakfast sandwiches and wraps are made even more delicious with a cup of Stumptown coffee. Oh, don't forget to grab a loaf of bread for the road!

The range of pastries was extensive and all looked good, positively a danger to the waistline. They also make a good cup of coffee.
