Where to enjoy the best breakfasts in Wine Country.
by Jill Silverman Hough
There's nothing like waking up in Wine Country, with
the promise of a perfect day ahead. So, why not indulge in an amazing
breakfast? Whether you like to ease into the day with coffee and a
fresh-baked scone, or you're up for a three-course brunch, here are the
spots to start your day off right.
The venue: A hotel restaurant, but the hotel feels like a bit of Tuscany.
The food: The two-course prix fixe breakfast starts with fresh-squeezed
orange juice, coffee, a small pastry, and yogurt with fruit and
house-made granola. Then, it moves to your choice of three egg dishes.
Go for the side of artisan-smoked bacon, and linger over every bite.
The prices: $18 (30 percent off for locals).
The details: Breakfast Mon.-Sun. 7:30-10 a.m. 6774 Washington St., Yountville, (707) 299-5015, cantinettapiero.com.
The venue: Michelin star-rated hotel restaurant, with a hip yet casual vibe.
The food: The on-premise garden influences the menu, and everything is
expertly prepared. Lemon ricotta pancakes are crisp around the edges but
light inside, thanks to whipped egg whites. Beef for the hash is house
corned. Juices aren't just fresh squeezed, they're squeezed to order.
And coffee comes in a personal French press.
The prices (entrées): $11-$17.
The details: Breakfast Mon.-Sun. 7-11 a.m., brunch Sun. 11:30 a.m.-3
p.m. 755 Silverado Trail, Calistoga, (707) 226-0800, solbarnv.com.
