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).

    Some food items are better than others- a bit overpriced for a lot of the food for the quality/taste. Outdoor patio is nice, request shade/umbrellas.

    Food was good. The establishment would not give separate checks. It is not fair to split the check evenly! This group will not be eating here again.

    The menu was limited and overpriced for a basic breakfast I could have got at any dinner. I was hoping for more options such as avocado toast or a breakfast bowl. Would not return.

    The restaurant was understaffed, but what restaurant is not understaffed these days. The paleo scramble my wife had was vey good. The chicken and waffles at $25 was really not great, under seasoned, and overcooked. A small boneless chicken breast, and a small waffle very poor value. Bloody Mary was weak in flavor, and although it comes with pickled green beans, which were not very flavorful, I always like fresh celery in my Bloody Mary too. I would not come back.

    Hubby and I loved this location for lunch - such fabulous ambience sitting outside next to the river. Our waitress, Esther, was great, too. We split a Caesar/Kale salad and a burger. Salad was fresh and had a delightful dressing. Burger was quite good, but not stellar since I am picky about hamburgers. Coffee and tea were good, too. Yes, I have been by this restaurant many times over the years, but had never dined there. We are so glad we enjoyed lunch there! And yes, I would recommend this place to friends.

    Very good breakfast. Eggs B looked to be over the Model Bakery English Muffins, making it much better. Eggs were very fresh and perfectly poached. Service was good. Not a great fan of sitting in a store, but they have a nice patio if it isn’t too cold.

    The food was good but unfortunately nothing special. Would have love to have access to the small “after 12” menu even though our reservation was at 1130. Service was spotty. Had to flag people down. Space heaters in the very full outdoor seating were sparse on our cold day. Buy more. Offer blankets.

    I love having a casual outdoor space where I can meet up with friends for lunch that's moderately priced. I'm happy to say that the food was really good the last two times I went (it had gotten a bit iffy a while ago) and we can once again put it on the regular go-to list.

    The brunch has a great variety of egg dishes and French toast. The food was delicious. However, our waitress was a little rushed and rude a couple times with our table and we made sure to always say please and thank you. A few members of our party are bi-lingual and needed just an extra minute to order and we felt as though no one could be patient. The restaurant space itself is neat and rustic and set along the river. I would recommended someone to go if they haven’t been before, but I will probably not go back due to the waitstaff attitudes and the fact that there are a lot of brunch options in the area.

    This get together was for our son’s Birthday. The experience was not as good as we were hoping. We waited about 15 minutes to be seated even though nobody was in line and we had a reservation. We were finally seated and waited about another 20 minutes before someone asked if we had been helped yet. Then came another waiting period before someone came to take our order. Once the food came, the fried chicken had no flavor but the waffle did. The eggs Benedict and potatoes lacked flavor. The Vintners Breakfast and Fieldhands Breakfast were mediocre.

    My aunt and I have eaten here several times but this time the salads we ordered were not great. While the ingredients were fresh, the seasoning was over done on my pork and there was more romaine than chicken in my Aunts salad. Not sure we will be going back any time soon. However, they do have a lovely outdoor patio near the river and the tables were full. So, folks must have been satisfied with their food selections.
