When I complained about the wretched coffee during my previous visit to Napa Valley,

my friends in St. Helena promised to take me to their favorite morning spot. Recently they made good on that. I met them at Yountville's Ottimo on a sunny spring morning.

Ottimo has counter service for placing an order. Then you're given a number to take to the table of your choice, the food and beverages catch up with you, and a bill is presented afterwards. We took the opportunity to sit outside on the patio overlooking the parking lot.

The cappuccino made with Stumptown beans was as good as promised. Pulled well, and the foam was still a bit too fluffy, but satisfactory. While I enjoyed my house baked blueberry muffin, a taste of olive oil muffin was my favorite of the pastries.

Ottimo is owned by Michael Chiarello. I had to swallow some personal distaste to try the coffee and baked goods. But I might do it again, if I were in the neighborhood.
