Enjoy the Sweet Life at The Model Bakery in Napa Valley

Image of The Model Bakery in Napa ValleyLow-carb and no carb diets may be the rage these days, but when you walk into The Model Bakery in Napa Valley, you simply have to indulge. This once hidden gem is one of our favorite spots to grab a cup of coffee and enjoy some pastries with family, friends, and clients.

As with most food establishments in Napa Valley, The Model Bakery isn’t typical. Sure, they have the usual bakery fare of cookies, croissants, breads, and breakfast/lunch sandwiches. But they’re known for something a little more obscure: the English Muffin. In fact, their English Muffins are so good that Oprah Winfrey said her biggest luxury is flying in the English Muffins from The Model Bakery in Napa Valley. (Oprah even put their English Muffins on her Favorite Things List for 2016 and 2017). These delicious yet humble muffins were also featured in a Food Network episode of The Best Thing I Ever Ate. The TV top chefs claimed that it was what every English Muffin truly yearns to be. (Have you noticed how so many Napa Valley eateries are featured on television or made famous by celebrities?)

A Napa Valley Staple

In 2008 they branched out to the Oxbow Public Market in Napa. Most recently they opened what they call their Mini Model location in Yountville. For the past 30 years The Model Bakery has been owned and operated by a mother-daughter team of Karen Mitchell, once a successful caterer in Napa Valley, and her daughter Sarah Mitchell Hansen. One thing we certainly love is to support fellow family businesses!

If you don’t live in Napa Valley (yet!) or if you want to introduce The Model Bakery to out of town family and friends, you can. They ship their English Muffins and cookies nationwide.

The next time you visit The Model Bakery in Napa Valley, you may just run into a member of The Pujals Team (we go there often). So stop by, say hi, and enjoy a cup of coffee with us. We can’t wait to talk with you.
