About 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).

Napa General Store Ratings and Reviews
Shopping area small compared to pictures on line. Food was good, had the chicken.sandwich with side salad. Ordered ranch dressing on the side , was not told by waiter there would be a charge of $1.00 for a dallop of dressing. There were three in my party and each ordered ranch in the side, we paid $3.00 for salad dressing. Would have nice to have been informed. Had offer for free Mimosa with check in, more like free OJ. Spending more time in Napa, will try again but know to ask cost of extras .
Restaurant inside of a general store with lots of crafts and interesting items to browse and purchase. Had lunch and food was good as was service. Menu doesn't have a lot of items but something there for everyone's tastes. Ladies at entrance warm and engaging and offered a lot of good information. You'll need a special code to get into restrooms in the entrance hall.
Food is always good. Deserts special.. Service as well. We eat here often and will return soon. Good wine list. Cute little store area for the "tourist" in everyone. Great lunch spot. Next to "Sweetie Pies" a great bakery and one of Napas really good chocolate stores. On the River, with good outdoor dining in warmer months.
Had a good time & the Chopped Chicken Salad was fantastic-great taste/big portions but tables by the patio door need to be moved-constant in/out by the servers and the left door when heading out makes a loud popping noise/some oil or a new hinge might be appropriate!
General Store is normally our "go to" for breakfast. Our open table reservation made the week before when we were there for breakfast was not in the system. We were seated right away but then our food order was lost. We were served 1 hour after our reservation time. This was not a glowing introduction of one of our local favorites to our guests. Luckily it did allow us to sit and talk but after an hour of wait it was getting a bit thin. The server was very nice and the food was as usual very good.
The food was excellent. There were 7 of us and everyone was happy with their selection.
We were all able to hear each other and the surroundings were beautiful with roses blooming.
Service seemed a little slower than the norm. We had to wait a little while for our drinks for a late lunch and then another while for them to take our food orders. After that it seemed to pick up.
We received confirmation of a reservation for lunch at 3 pm. When we arrived there (in time) we were told that it was too late for lunch. We were very disappointed as we came all the way long from San Francisco to this place.
However the staff was very friendly. They offered us a pizza but that was not the meal we came for. So we had to look for another place to eat.
