Two new establishments seek to add to Yountville’s ever-growing allure

by TrevR on July 8, 2009

The small town of Yountville, which sits smack-dab in the heart of the Napa Valley, is regularly referenced as being one of the top (if not THE top) culinary site’s in the world.

With Thomas Keller’s French Laundry, Bouchon and Ad Hoc, Michael Chiarello’s Bottega, Cindy Pawlcyn’s Mustards, Richard Reddington’s Redd and a host of other fine dining establishments, it’s hard to argue otherwise.

As we strolled through Yountville recently we noted two new additions to the wining and dining landscape…

Yountville Coffee Caboose

First, the Yountville Coffee Caboose, which is part of the unique Napa Valley Railway Inn, is now open for business at 6523 Washington Street right across from V Marketplace. Serving Ritual Roasters coffee and pastries from Napa Valley’s own Sweetie Pies, this looks to be a solid alternative for anyone who may not have the time to wait in the often lengthy line to get a cuppa Joe and/or sweets from Keller’s Bouchon Bakery.

Slightly further south, Cornerstone Cellars has just opened (although maybe not officially) its new tasting room. The morning we strolled by there was classic rock pumping from the speakers inside and a few people working to unpack cases of wine and do a bit of last minute clean-up. The tasting room is located at 6505 Washington Street–just across from the town Post Office–and is open from 10am – 6pm daily.

    Does the Coffee Caboose happen to have WIFI? Anywhere else in Yountville with WIFI access?

    Thanks!

    I agree with this. I don't see that Yountville has free wifi connection.
