Open since 1998, Napa Café is tucked away in a pleasant corner of Sanderlin Shopping Center. Always a favorite of the neighborhood, the café has become a top Memphis dining destination since owner, Glenda Hastings, took over the reins in 2003. With its polished yet inviting interior, captivating artwork and distinctive cuisine, Napa Café elicits superlatives from first-time visitors as well as from the guests who return again and again. Indeed, so taken way by the café's charm one evening, noted restaurant critic, Frederic Koeppel, was inspired to write that Napa Café "is the sweetest, most welcoming restaurant in town.
You're as likely as not to be welcomed by Hastings herself as you enter the cafe foyer. With her ready smile and effervescent personality, Hastings sets the tone for your visit with genuine enthusiasm-a rarity in the industry today. You'll find it isn't odd to see Hastigs throughout the meal-attention to detail is remarkable. In fact, she and her staff, headed expertly by Rusty Prudhon, Beth Turnage-Bomarito and Lanie Smith, are always on hand to enhance your experience-from clearing plates and reciting dinner specials to recommending a favorite wine to go with you entrée.
Napa Café takes its name from the renowned Californian wine region of Napa Valley and offers a broad selection of wines from California, as well as other parts of the world, while the merlot accented dining room offers a charming ambience.
