For close to 90 years, The Model Bakery has been part of the Napa Valley culinary scene, providing discerning & hungry residents & valley visitors the best breads, pastries & coffee house at the original location on Main Street in St. Helena.

We also offer the absolute best selection in the valley, including sourdough (cultivated from our owm wine-grape based starter), sweet French, pain levain, harvest wheat, walnut bread, foccacia - even epi baguettes and other specialty breads - all made with extraordinary ingredients and care.
If English Muffins were rock bands... our version would be the Beatles...incomparable! Pay the extra for butter and jam and then...try not to look a fool gobbling it down and not sharing one dang bite with anyone else. On two occasions we had to return to pick up the missing goods. I was surprised that most of the cases were empty, and the only real option for something sweet was a cookie. The other items available didn't look all that good to me and after visiting two of their locations the interiors feel like they could use a good scrub, some merchandising of the cases, and some updating.
Featured on Oprah’s Favorite Things 2016, we lovingly hand make each and every muffin, ensuring their yummy, buttery flavor and fluffy texture…just like Oprah likes them! So worth it, if you're there ever, don't forget Model Bakery! But the best place is in your hands, with a cold glass of milk or one of our Stumptown coffee concoctions.
We take painstaking steps to ensure we source out only the finest ingredients, and never sacrifice quality for price.
... Model Bakery ($$) Bakery • Menu Available. The drinks were great (we had a coffee snob with us who very much loved their fancy black coffee) and we'd definitely stop back if we were in the area.More, This is one of the best bakeries that I've come across regarding the quality of the baked goods. Phone: (707) 259-1128 | Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition to our varied selection of classic French pastries, scones, croissants and other delightful indulgences, we also offer daily specials, our fan-favorite Morning Glory muffins, and of course – our world-famous English muffins, recently featured on Oprah's Favorite Things List 2016 as one of Oprah's top favorites!
As with everything we make at Model Bakery, only the best quality ingredients go into every cake we bake - and decorate! We are proud of our organic, artisan breads that are unmatched in the Napa Valley and North Bay. But the best place is in your hands, with a cold glass of milk or one of our Blue Bottle coffee concoctions. Stop by and pick up a loaf - and taste the difference for yourself! I know Model Bakery is famous for its English muffins, so maybe we’ll come back to try those sometime.
On our way out of town (and at the start of a very long drive home) I had to wait 15 minutes for them to correct our online order that was otherwise ready at the scheduled time.
Visit the Napa location in the afternoons and you may be so lucky to receive a warm baguette during our "late bake". Eventually we got it all figured out and started munching outside. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, holidays, or just because.... cakes make every day a celebration! Baked fresh every morning in our historic brick ovens, our cookies have been a Napa Valley favorite for decades. The food was fantastic - I distinctly remember the breakfast burrito 4 months later as I write this review. We rank these hotels, restaurants, and attractions by balancing reviews from our members with how close they are to this location. In addition to our daily lineup of these tasty treats, we love to bake our seasonal favorites - cookies for Valentine's Day, Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and of course..... mom's famous iced Christmas Cookies!
This location is a great place to grab a quick lunch with fresh, seasonal salads, soups, sandwiches and pizza! Start your morning off right with a breakfast sandwich made on our world-famous English muffins, or enjoy our other breakfast offerings include house-made granola parfaits, freshly baked quiche, bread pudding, or a choice of any of our fresh morning pastries. We bake all of our artisan breads here in top of the line deck ovens for retail and wholesale distribution in the Napa Valley. I would go back next time in St. Helena. All the fun was gone.
