Fuel Up at the 10Best Breakfast Spots in Napa Valley

It’s no secret breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But fueling up isn’t just a nutritional necessity in Napa Valley, it’s an incentive to roll out of bed early. C Casa’s take on Huevos Rancheros is the type of dish you won’t want to share, so consider yourself warned. Accept you might make exceed your normal calorie count when you walk into Bouchon Bakery and find yourself face-to-face with lemon poppy seed muffins, chocolate almond croissants and apricot almond scones. Then there's the Iron Skillet Cornbread with lavender honey butter (served open to close) at Grace's Table. If you're in a rush, the folks at Sweetie Pies have a long list of tasty choices including cinnamon buns, and a multitude of muffins and scones, that are easy to eat on the go, especially walking along the Napa River on a sunny day. If you have time to sit and enjoy, The Boon Fly Cafe offers its take on green eggs and ham. And you can always order a Bloody Mary or Mimosa to wash it down. Wherever you go, you'll eat well, and maybe wind up skipping lunch.
