On the morning of our one full day in Napa, I decided to give the Las Alcobas Napa Valley room service a try for breakfast. After all, my goal for the day was to have a splurgy belated birthday celebration for my lovely wife.
I phoned down to the restaurant the morning of to place my order and made myself a cup of tea.
If I remember correctly, the time initially quoted was 45 minutes or something like that. But, our breakfast arrived a little earlier and was delivered by a cheerful restaurant associate.
The rooms at the Las Alcobas Napa Valley are gorgeous. But, we had a vineyard view room, so I was determined to have an al fresco breakfast experience. So, I pulled the little stool that was next to the sitting chair out from our room and made a makeshift table with the delivery tray by the firepit. I then lit the firepit to keep us warm on that cool and crisp autumn morning. And let me tell you, both of us miss that setting dearly. A cool morning warmed by the fire with the tranquillity of the vineyard broken only by the call of the hummingbirds below.
With a spa experience coming up after breakfast, we decided to keep things light and simple.
Aside from my tea, Mrs. Island Miler decided to try the herb tonic, which is a green drink made with apple, basil, cilantro, cucumber, spinach, and ginger. It’s a very tasty, refreshing drink, with a mild sweetness, some vegetal flavors, and a slight kick.
For her main, Mrs. Island Miler went with the Greek Yogurt, which came with house-made granola, seasonal fruit, and Marshall’s Farm honey. It was a very good yogurt dish with perfectly ripe fruit and an outstanding granola.
Being the mushroom lover I am, I went with the Omelette. The Acacia House version comes stuffed with wild mushrooms, creme fraiche, and caramelized onions with a side salad. That salad, by the way, was as sad tasting as it looks. It was drenched in heavy dressing, causing the delicate greens to wilt. The omelette, on the other hand, was wonderful. I loved the earthy mushrooms paired with sweet, caramelized onions, the creaminess of the creme fraiche, and an herbal note from the chives. But, much like the pasta the night before, the mushrooms were almost too salty, though the eggs were underseasoned, so ??♂️.
I also ordered a side of fruit, which ended up being unnecessary. After all, the fruit bowl came with the same fruit as the Greek Yogurt.
Las Alcobas Napa Valley Room Service, Final Thoughts
Our Las Alcobas Napa Valley room service experience was a genuinely indulgent one. Admittedly, though, the setting probably had a lot to do with our sentiment. After all, while the food was good, it wasn’t mindblowing, and there were some missteps. I’d totally order-in again, though, if we got to return to the property and stay in the same room type.
