Calistoga is a small town nestled in the Upper Napa Valley of California. As with the entire valley, the air is rich with the scent of deliciously fresh prepared meals. Every open door you pass is alive with the sound of people enjoying a meal together with their friends and neighbors. We are delighted to bring the charm, the food and the uncomplicated lifestyle of Napa Valley to you. Better, simply better.
The things we give you are: Gourmet soups, salads and sandwiches, artisan breads and pastries, custom roasted coffees and espresso, welcoming service, and the sense of community.
Come in for a breakfast, lunch or dinner, stay as long as you’d like. We love to see our friends several times a day.
Have a seat next to the comfort of our fireplace, or enjoy the outside on our fountain patio or the quiet in the privacy of our high back booths.
Or maybe you’ll want to sit at our espresso bar and chat with our barista. In a hurry, stop by our outside espresso bar carryout window to get your pastry and coffee or pick up your call in order for the office.
Have business to conduct? Bring your laptop and check your e-mail, meet your friends and associates or reserve our community room for a meeting.
The hearth deck oven is the beating heart of the cafe. Feel free to close your eyes and let the aroma transport you.
We’re a neighborhood bakery cafe and like our neighbors we are made richer by contrast: Rustic hardwood floors meet warm concrete, and old world craft sustains the latest technology. Through it all moves the spirit of Calistoga: You’re always welcome here. You’ll always have a place to sit and relax, to take a break from your day in the company of friends, to enjoy . . . better, simply better.
Better. Simply Better. What does it mean?
You simply deserve better and we are committed to ensure you receive Better. We go to great lengths to bring to you the finest ingredients available. We are not fast food, our sandwiches and salads are not made in advance. If you order a half sandwich we build a whole fresh sandwich for your half. We hand build and mix our salads right in front of you. Our Pressata sandwiches are stuffed with ingredients held between rustic bread and pressed on a hot grill. If you want your sandwich or salad customized we’ll do just that….it’s Simply Better. Our soups, sauces and salad dressings are proprietary and made with our custom gourmet recipes. Our coffee and espresso beans are roasted especially for us and our handcrafted breads, pastries and other baked specialties are made with our French artisan recipes.
At Calistoga Bakery Cafe
we are committed to ensuring that your coffee experience is simply better. This begins with selecting those coffees that most dramatically represent the unique qualities of each coffee growing region. Each variety is artisanly roasted in a small batch roasting process, bringing every coffee to its particular peak and rendering a taste that is true to the regional qualities of each bean. Our coffees are air-cooled quickly and packaged within minutes to allow for in-bag degassing which seals in freshness by retaining the atmosphere produced from the bean itself in the few hours immediately following the roasting process. Our coffees arrive in your hands only after we have attended to every detail along the way yielding a simply better experience in each and every cup.
