This was a great way to spend the afternoon!
Being a Napa resident I have enjoyed each of the establishments on the tour before. I was however pleasantly surprised at how much I learned about the food and history of each of these eateries while on The Taste of Downtown Napa tour.
Each of the places we stopped had delicious food and a passionate owner/manager that provided unique insight into their craft.
I definitely recommend this tour to both locals already familiar with downtown Napa and people discovering Napa for the first time.

The owner Mecaela is amazing! She personally took us on our food tour and it was very clear she is well connected in Napa as she knew most of the owners of the places we stopped at. The tour was a great mix of types of foods from mini huevos rancheros & ricotta pancakes on our first stop to fritto sliders and authentic woodfired Italian pizzas. We also stopped for chocolates and coffee samples. Many of the stops also featured a mini cocktail or beer which all paired very nicely with the bites. We got in 8 stops in our tour! Definitely don’t eat before we were super full by the end! Great tour, highly recommend!

WOW! I took this tour as a Napa resident and still tried new food and learned new things about my own backyard. We tasted each restaurant’s “claim to fame” menu item as small bites across 8 restaurants. The tour provided more than enough food to replace lunch, and maybe even dinner! And don’t worry, even picky eaters will enjoy this cuisine. Frito slider? Yes please! It’s a fun activity that really demonstrates how Napa has made waves in the culinary world as well as the wine world.
