Whether you're looking for a sweet treat to dip in your first coffee of the day, or a full brunch with hearty plates and mimosas, Southside Yountville has it all! A long menu of coffee house favorites complements creative fusion dishes that represent some of Napa Valley's most influential cuisines, all in a friendly, casual environment perfect for a lazy wine country morning.
Fresh ingredients are on display throughout the menu, but especially in dishes like the Grilled Strawberry Toast with tarragon and mascarpone cheese, and in the Super Food Bowl with seasonal vegetables, quinoa, and avocado. For something more indulgent, try the Oaxacan Torta with ancho-braised beef and chipotle crema, or the Croque Señora on fresh brioche. The Kids Menu includes a favorite for young and old alike: made-fresh buttermilk biscuits served with seasonal jams! Both breakfast and lunch menus are served all day (8 AM until 3 PM) in the Yountville location, which is part of the Stewart Cellars tasting room and library.
Ad Hoc 6476 Washington St.Yountville, CA 94599 (707) 944-2487
Thomas Keller has nothing prove, but the famous restaurateur keeps extending and perfecting his culinary offerings in Napa Valley. Ad Hoc was originally known for family-style dinners, with cuisine based on the "comfort foods" Keller identified with childhood. The restaurant became known for fried chicken made as meticulously (and as deliciously!) as more sophisticated menu items.
Now with a Sunday brunch menu, the restaurant is as popular as ever, so be sure to make a reservation so you don't miss the changing, seasonal line-up. Enjoy a three couse menu including items like arugula salad with smoked salmon and crispy capers, a Wagyu beef brisket hash, and surprising desserts like "Hummingbird Cake" dressed in cream cheese frosting and coconut. Upgrades are available, like mimosas and caviar, and occasionally a la carte items like fried chicken and extra eggs make an appearance! This brunch is for those with a hearty appetite, so be sure to arrive hungry.
