Owners Toni and Rick Kraft, chef Daniel Reynolds, and sous chef Stella Midori-Mokofski have transformed their love of food and years of culinary expertise into innovative menus infused with a rustic, Southern California elegance. Brunch-goers will be able to order from the breakfast menu Friday through Sunday from 8:30 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. and will receive a domestic cheese and fruit plate and a choice of Café Merlot mimosas, signature sangria, or a bottle of house champagne with their meals. The pastoral scenery of the Bernardo Winery and live music on Friday and Saturdays, create an environment ripe for a romantic rendezvous or a quaint breakfast away from the responsibilities of the kitchen.
Although reviewers are mixed on service, customers agree that they enjoy the atmosphere. Yelpers give Café Merlot an average of 3.5 stars.
