It’s impossible to miss this classic spot en route to Yountville, with an endless line that starts at breakfast for favorites like the boysenberry danish and the Rutherford sandwich with applewood bacon, eggs, and cheddar, and doesn’t let up until closing time. If you’re here for lunch, try something from as many of the counters as possible—we like to get the Thai crunch salad, the toasted chicken gruyere sandwich, and a chewy, crispy spicy sausage pizza. While all food is packed to go, the true Oakville experience is to eat on the patio overlooking some of the most famous Cabernet vines in Napa Valley. While you’re there, make sure to check out the wine museum next door, filled with artifacts, vineyard maps, and a dizzying display of Baccarat chandeliers.
