I am featuring Napa Valley on Treats & Eats this week. A little shopping treats and a bit of eating is always key when spending the day in Napa Valley. Oh, then there’s the few winerys you can check out, which I will leave for another post. Right now I want to focus on where my heart is when I head down to gorgeous Napa Valley!
SHOPPING: Footcandy in St. Helena. This is one of my favorite shops in Napa Valley. They have a pretty grand selection of high end Designer shoes. I usually head to the back of the store because that’s where they keep all their sale items. Last year I snagged a Tibi dress, marked down from $400 to $50. Not bad eh?!
SHOPPING: Alice Consignment in St. Helena. Love this little consignment shop! They have the most brilliant collection of 1940′s silk robes I have ever seen.
BREAKFAST: Bouchon Bakery in Yountville. The most amazing bacon and cheddar biscuits that have ever touched my lips. Be prepared to wait in a long line. There’s a lot of biscuit eaters in Yountville/Napa Valley.
LUNCH: Buster’s BBQ in Calistoga. I love me some BBQ. I can tell Buster is from the South by his tasty original spicy BBQ sauce. I stumbled upon Buster’s 3 years ago on my way to Calistoga. It’s the BEST BBQ this side of the Mississippi!
AFTERNOON SNACK : The Model Bakery in St. Helena . Their Oatmeal raisin cookies are insane! I usually pick up 3 cookies since I devour one before leaving the bakery and the other 2 are for my drive back home.
DINNER: Ad Hoc in Yountville. Oh Thomas Keller can do no wrong. His budget friendly restaurant Ad Hoc is a superb addition to the eatery scene in Yountville. Fixed menus and fixed price. The food is so amazing I want to spend the night there and wake up in the morning for bruch. This is a plae you MUST dine at if you’re in the area.
