Sometimes the most memorable part of a boutique Napa Valley experience isn't the world-famous restaurant, or the hours-long tour of a famous winery estate. It's a small, stolen moment—like a long, slow breakfast at a local bakery, or the perfect latte from a bistro you discover between wine tastings.
Here at SENZA, we love to share our favorite Yountville spots with our guests. Please join us on a virtual tour of our favorite cafes in nearby Yountville-spots perfect for savoring a laid-back meal or unexpected treat!
Loved by locals and visitors alike, you can easily find Bouchon Bakery in Yountville from the line of people down the block! Famed far and wide for its artisan breads, and traditional French desserts (think Macarons,) Bouchon Bakery offers a wide selection of handmade pastries, tarts, and cookies, as well as sandwiches that are made in-house daily. Can't make it to Yountville to try these culinary masterpieces? Then you can order from Bouchon Bakery online here.
Located at the north end of Yountville Kelly's, as the locals call it, is one of Yountville's best-kept secrets! In addition to being a traditional service station that sells gas Kelly's is also a great place to fuel up before a day of wine tasting. On top of great coffee, and their famous hot dogs you can stock up for a Napa Valley picnic with their great selection of provisions.
With the same mouth-watering selection as the parent bakery on St. Helena's Main Street, the Mini-Model Bakery in Yountville serves up dessert, cookies, breads, and of course, the famous Model Bakery English Muffins. With 25 years of experience serving their daily creations, the Bakery now also serves breakfast and lunch items, like quiche, salads, and sandwiches. Don't leave without sampling a cookie, pastry, or a slice of the locally famous sourdough!
Southside - 6752 Washington St, Yountville CA 94599, (707)947-7120
Southside describes itself as a "community centered" café, perfect for intimate conversations and relaxed meals morning, noon, and night. Breakfast treats like Strawberry Toast with mascarpone complement a wide coffee bar, while evening cocktails and draft beers can be paired with entrees as diverse as Oaxacan Beef Torta and Tuna Confit salad. A kids' menu makes Southside family friendly, too, and be sure to sample the scone or pastry of the day! If you're lucky to visit during monthly Fried Chicken Fridays, you can't miss homemade biscuits, Napa cabbage slaw, and of course, Buttermilk Fried Chicken.
We here at SENZA look forward to welcoming you to our boutique hotel grounds, and the many hidden treasures of the Napa Valley.
