A word from Napa General Store
When Jim & Jill Brandt decided to open the Napa General Store they wanted to create a casual space that reflected the history of the building that they had rescued along the banks of the Napa River.
It was important to them that the Napa General Store was authentic in every detail, and that includes making their cornmeal pancakes from scratch, squeezing oranges for juice and using local farm-raised eggs for breakfast.
Their hearts told them that if they put together the friendliest staff in Napa, and treated guests like they were home, that good things would follow.
After more than ten years of welcoming locals and visitors alike it seems their instincts were correct. Locals have their favorite tables and visitors return year after year for the quality, value and down-home charm.
The Napa General Store café continues a tradition of casual riverside dining in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere (Fido welcome on the back deck).

Diner Reviews
  • "The food was good, it was kind of what I was expecting, didn't blow me out of the water, but not disappointed. Service was ok as well, but the food did give us the energy to make it through the afternoon in Napa."

  • "We live in Orinda and drove to Napa for something different. We're so glad we did. This was a delightful breakfast in a fun store, off the river in a nice environment with such friendly people. The breakfast was delicious. There were a number of choices. I would highly recommend it. If the weather had been better we could have eaten outside, overlooking the river."

  • "As a local, I find this a nice place to go for lunch with other family members without breaking the bank. Everyone enjoyed the food and the experience."

  • "I loved the pancakes (cornmeal) probably because I can't find cornmeal pancakes at home. The syrup was amazing! I think it was a reduction. I loved the Napa scramble, but it could have used more goat cheese. I know a little goes a long way, but I only got a tiny bit. I liked shopping in the cute store before my table was ready. The waitress was jolly!"

  • "A group of us were in a training seminar and had 1 hour to eat. We were given faster service than a fast food restaurant and the food was wonderful. Highly recommend."

  • "We chose it for brunch based on an e-review. We were originally ignored. Then we waited quite some time just for coffee. We could see that our order was sitting & ready while our waitress served another table their juice. As a result, our eggs were cold & not very flavorful. The setting is charming."

  • "Our out-of-town guests liked it and we were able to chat for a long time without feeling rushed. Good array of brunch selections."

  • "It's refreshing to find a good food place in the Napa Valley at moderate prices. An extensive menu with lots of choices too. Food is prepared well. And tasty. Indoors in winter, outdoors on the water during warm weather months make for pleasant ambience. Our Party had an excellent pizza with carmelized onions, fresh mozarella and veggies; excellent Greek salad with lots of very good chicken breast, a huge chicken & avocado sandwich with very good fries. Nice"

  • "The restaurant isn't bad, but service was slow even though the restaurant was only half full and the food was good but not great. It has nice ambience right on the river."

  • "....first time here...4 of us...sat inside/nice outdoor seating next to river but too chilly....seated at table next to fireplace but too hot...moved to another table...server brought water/drinks & we said we needed a couple more mins to decide what to order but after 15 mins passed we had to tell another server we were ready to order. Food was fair/good...we shared pizza, chicken quesadilla, ruben sandwich, and fish&chips."

  • "The Napa General Store is a great place for lunch, not open for dinner and I wish it was!!! It is right on the river, the food is casual and great. There is a gift shop connected to the restaurant and has great local things!!! Fun place to eat, inside or outside on darling patio."

  • "This is a cool place in the heart of downtown Napa, but we left disappointed overall with the food. The Corned Beef Ruben was tough and chewy, and the Chicken Caesar Salad was bland (the chicken had no flavor). Our server was great and again, a neat place, but the food did not live up to its reputation."

  • "Fall mornings are cool and winter is coming. Time to beak out or invest in propane heaters for the patio."

  • "Only thing that would be nicer if staff were more in tune to lunch schedules. But it's always crowded so..."

  • "Have been here a few dozen times. Be sure to sit outdoors in nice weather and request that when you reserve. Indoors is an afterthought. Staff is young, but friendly helpful and attentive. Attention diabetics. After MANY requests they finally got sugar free syrup so you can enjoy the yummy corn pancakes Parking easy and free."
