As the story goes, California's first millionaire—Sam Brannan—bought up the geyser lands in the upper Napa Valley, on the prospect that it would be a great place to build a resort for his well-heeled San Francisco friends. When asked what how he intended to accomplish this feat while co-imbibing with said friends, Mr. Brannan was purported to have said, "I'm going to make it the Calistoga of Sarafornia!" (what he meant to say was the "Saratoga of California" after the then world-famous Saratoga Springs in New York). Hence the name of the town, the name of the diner.

Café Sarafornia is one of the last diners left in the Napa Valley and is a well-known (dare we say "famous"?) local destination for good food at a good value.

We offer breakfast all day, and feature not only classic diner fare (Corned Beef Hash, Steak and Eggs, Chicken Fried Steak, 2+2+2) but our own take on breakfast and lunch with local Napa Valley flair (Brannan Benedict, Wildcat Scrambler, Palisades Omelet, Jalisco Wrap, and a Bombay Chicken Sandwich).

Café Sarafornia is a great place get something to "soak up those tannins" before going wine tasting at one of the many world-class tasting rooms within walking distance in downtown Calistoga

This Week's Special


“Very tasty, pure Calistoga charm”

4 of 5 starsReviewed January 6, 2014

A friendly, local Calistoga tradition, this cafe is a must do for breakfast... the [portions] are large, and the cooking is good. Some home cooked favorites like good corned beef hash and biscuits and gravy, all served by locals in setting with a lot of history.
