Located on the main drive through downtown St Helena, Ca. Is Gillwoods Cafe. It’s only open 7am to 3pm. The breakfast is marvelous. Today we got seated in the back dining room and was told Nancy Pelosi was just sitting at our table!!!!!!! We have been here many times. Today we’re having the country fried steak n eggs with potatoes and toast. Gillwoods scramble w/ bacon, tomato, mushrooms, chives, cheese. Breakfast skillet w/ Italian sausage, sautéed potatoes, onions, tomato topped with melted cheddar and jack cheese,poached egg, toast. French toast w/ fresh strawberries and side of applewood smoked bacon. Everyone enjoyed their breakfast.
Highly recommended

I had a early morning meeting at the Ritz Carlton hotel in Half Moon Bay, Ca.  After the meeting i remembered this bakery in Town i had stopped at a few years back. It was a sleepy Monday morning at 9:30am  and a lot of stores weren’t open yet. i cruised down main st. looking for the bakery. It had a sign out front that said they served breakfast and lunch, so i wandered in. There was a beautiful pastry assortment staring at me, hummmmmmmm .  I ordered an Omelette with Ham & cheese.  It was served with Diced red potatoes, red onions and bell peppers, Fresh Fruit Slices and toast (i had sourdough).  ohhhhhh  so good.  I sat in the covered back patio area, and all of a sudden the place began to get busy and fill up. Everyone was enjoying some breakfast or pastry with coffee.  I Ordered to go, TWO Cinnamon Crisps. 12″ Circles of Flaky crisp delicious pastry with baked on cinnamon sugar…OH YES… these are soooo good and very hard to find these days. I remember getting this when i was a kid…40 years ago ….LOL   I finished off the breakfast with a glass of FRESH, I Mean they just made it, FRESH Orange Juice     Don’t miss this place if you’re in Half Moon Bay … Delightful
