Looking for expensive groceries and gourmet food items from Napa like fresh jams, nuts coated in fancy seasonings, and salted chocolates to take back in your suitcase? Then Oakville Grocery is the place for you. While Oakville Grocery is insanely priced, everything they sell is also insanely delicious and convinces me that yes I do need to spend $17 on this sandwich (I do not even like salmon that much, but their smoked salmon sandwich was life changing).
There are two locations in northern California, but only 1 in the Napa area. There is a cute outdoor space with seating and a wood fire pizza oven, while the inside is a food lover’s maze of cheeses, jams, and fancy nuts, plus the deli counter, coffee bar, a glass case of delicious pastries, and plenty of samples. Be ready for a major lunch rush if you are visiting around noon, but you should at least make one stop while in town.
