Make it a point to stop here (or Napa) for breakfast. The English Muffins are a must. You can't visit the area without having a breakfast or lunch sandwich at Model Bakery. Try a Chocolate Rad cookie! It's the Bomb!

Stopped for a coffee and morning buns. We have not experienced morning buns before coming to the Napa valley but truly are hooked on them. This small shop/bakery is outstanding with great textured coffee and a wide variety of baking. Well done. They have a published book that I will be looking for.

We stopped here for coffee and a snack and also hoped to find a bathroom. I had a cappuchino that was ok and an ok cookie. My wife had a no big deal tea. Hard to get a seat and no bathroom.

Stopped by for a mocha and an almond croissant. Both were flavorful and fresh. Nice location in the heart of Main Street with a few tables. Lunch menu looked creative.

This may be the best breakfast spot I have been to. Great options and fresh bakery goods. When I go back I am going to buy a lunch to go for a wine tasting picnic.

I've been to this place 3 times. Their delicious bakery brings me back. This time I tried the custard danish and my husband had a slice of banana bread accompanied by some good coffee. Out of this world!!! The place was packed and people kept coming in. That says a lot!!!! Totally recommend this place.

Wonderful scones, granola , fresh fruit and coffee drinks. Also I saw the home made English Muffins flying out of the place so had to buy some. They have been shown on the food channel. I came here with some friends for a coffee and scone. We ordered a couple of things to share, the blueberry scone, the granola and... More

Had a coffee and two desserts. Lucky to catch a table for the three of us. Very casual. Arrive early should you expect any selection.
