Coming to Napa for the PGA Tournament Oct 8 to Oct 12.  Looking for a Cafe with Superb Gelato, Panini (Italian Deli Sandwiches), Pasta or Espresso? Maybe a little Wine,  Iced Tea or Cannoli.  We got ‘em … 

  “The worst time to have a heart attack is during a game of charades”    …..  Think about it …  (: (: (:

If you are coming to Napa to enjoy some world class  wine tasting, you can also enjoy some  great shopping on the Napa Riverfront.  Following is a list of some of the superb shops in the Riverfront Complex:

Shops:
Scott Lyall   Men’s Shop
Marie Lyall  Shoe’s etc. 
Cake Plate Boutique  Women’s Fashions
Danielle Boutique  Women’s Fashion
Helen Lyall  Women’s Fashions
Thomas Bartlett Interiors  
Michael Holmes Design
Liken Gallery
Sidestreet Cigar:  Cigars & Men’s Accessories

Restaurants & Cafes:
Frati Gelato Cafe
The Pear
Fish Story
Morimoto’s

Of course all these great shops are anchored by the Napa Valley Welcome Center.  The volunteers who staff the Center are extremely knowledgeable  and can help you find your way around the Valley or even find some lodging for you.

When you are done wine tasting for the day,  you can cool off on our shaded patio overlooking the Napa River with a refreshing cup of Limoncello Sorbetto or a cup of Espresso Gelato.  If that doesn’t do it for you, you can enjoy one one of our Iced Coffees or an Iced Tea.

Dr. Gelato’s Plate of the Day;  
  Homemade Umbrian Lentil Soup with Bruschetta   $ 7.99 Tax Included

Featured Panini:
   FONTINA TOAST  – Fontina Cheese & Pancetta ( Italian Bacon). Toasted   to  perfection on our Panini grill.  $7.50  Tax Included  

We use  Clover-Stornetta   O r g a n i c   Whole Milk to make our gelato. The fat content of our gelato is therefore the same as a glass of milk between 6 to 8 %.  Ice Cream (by Federal Law) must contain at least 10% Fat. The law also stipulates that a gallon must weigh at least 4.5 pounds. This is to insure that the manufacturer  does not put excessive amounts of air in the ice cream and that you as the consumer gets some value for the money you spend on Ice Cream.

 

Today’s Featured Gelato Flavor is  Coffee Toffee

Wednesday’s  Flavors:
Coffee Toffee
Cookies & Cream
Toblerone
Peanut Butter Swirl
Apricot Chip
Butterscotch Swirl

Having lunch or dinner at  THE PEAR, THE GENERAL STORE, CELADON, FISH STORY, ANGELE  or MORIMOTO’s? After your delicious Riverfront lunch (or dinner), take a stroll to Frati and have some gelato or a cappuccino or maybe a little sweet wine. Sit and relax a little in the shade of our patio on the river.

Renting a bike from the famous NAPA VALLEY VELO bike shop this weekend for a little tour of the Napa Valley. After your ride you can stop in at Frati for a little refreshment to reenergize those aching muscles.  Try one of our Sorbets. They are very refreshing and have zero fat content.
