The food was best breakfast ever! I never had Maplewood bacon and got is it yummy! It is a small restaurant so during peak season definitely reserve a table. We waited 45 minutes but it was well worth the wait!

An excellent breakfast and brunch place nestled in historic mill building and general store. Spent lots of time in store after the great meal. If in Napa in the morning, go here!
