Barnhouse Napa Brews

Nothing says cozy quite like an English coffee pub. You can get a steamy espresso drink, coffee or English tea at this new, local hot spot that is perfect for locals and visitors alike. Pair it with a good book, or a laptop if you must.

Napa Valley Coffee Roasting Company

At Napa Valley Coffee Roasting Company, each cup of carefully roasted coffee can be complemented with pastries in the morning or cookies in the afternoon. Or you may want to combine both vibes into one and order the Pumpkin Pie mocha or latte.

To sweeten the meal, resident cellist Jeffrey McFarland-Johnson performs from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. on Fridays.

Ritual Roasters

Ritual Roasters is a pioneer of the West Coast style of light roasting and a perfect spot for all the fall feels.  Plus, it’s next door to Napa Valley mainstay Model Bakery if you’d like to have your coffee and eat cake too.



Anette’s Chocolates

Similar to finding the perfect ganache filling at the center of a truffle, Anette’s Chocolate and Ice Cream Factory can be found in the middle of Downtown Napa. Enlighten your taste buds with their award-winning chocolate wine sauces and sample their specialty hot chocolates and espresso drinks. We recommend the caramel brandy sauce, harvest brittle or English toffee for a fall-flavored surprise.

In addition, cozy up for a long stay and watch the master confectioners at work through the large display windows of the candy kitchen.

Model Bakery

This local favorite has earned national attention from The Food Network and has made Oprah’s Favorite Things list — twice. Pick up one of their famous English muffins or Chocolate Rads and pair them with a hot beverage.

If you’re the planning type, we can share two local tips. First, their festively adorned Pumpkin Spice Cake is available for pre-orders this time of year beginning in October. Secondly, if you visit after 2:00 p.m. daily, you can grab one of their “late bake” baguettes warm out of the oven.

Monday Bakery

TGIM! Monday Bakery sources fresh, seasonal ingredients from local purveyors to produce home-style desserts and savory favorites baked entirely from scratch. You’ll find a full range of wholesome baked goods, artisanal desserts, custom cakes and a range of espresso and coffee drinks to pair. However, if you’re going all in on fall, we suggest you fall straight into the bakery asap and order the deliciously indulgent Pumpkin Sugar Donut Muffin.

Sweetie Pies

Sweetie Pies Bakery in Downtown Napa at the Historic Napa Mill is the place to visit when you are in the mood for cakes, pies, cookies or breakfast pastries. And for extra autumn awesomeness, you must check out their vegan, gluten-free pumpkin and apple pies.

Downtown Napa is the hot spot to find a fall coffee treat to warm up on a crisp autumn day. Book your lodging for that fall getaway today as there are hotels and bed and breakfast conveniently close to all these sweet spots.
