My husband and I totally love places like this. Food was really good. We did feel sorry for the waitress she was swamped and the only one working. But I highly recommend this place

I usually frequent the downtown breakfast establishments, but after a friend mentioned this place, i figured what the heck. Its nothing fancy or big, but the food is good and the service is fast. What else can you ask for when youre hungry and just want breakfast. The portions fit the price. Its a neat place off the beaten path... More

My wife and I found this place through a little online research. With no kids with us on this trip, we decided to gamble on an unknown breakfast place on a Sunday morning. It looked a little sketchy walking up to the front and the inside seemed a little better, but still didn't convince us we made a good choice.... More

Got 2 breakfast burritos to go and they are enormous! Great price and very tasty!! Took 15 minutes but worth the wait! Cost 16 bucks which was cheap to us! Came with fruit, sour cream and salsa. Also had bacon and sausage! Very tasty!!

My husband and I were visiting his brother in Sacramento. The morning we took off they said that they were going to take us to breakfast. When we drove up I was maybe a little nervous, but they said they go here all the time and love it. I had pancakes, ham and eggs. Some of the BEST pancakes I... More

... at the variety of the menu. My favorite is the Veggie Crunch which the owner invented some years ago he says. I think my wife invented it during our "hippie" years, but it doesn't matter it is yummy good. Have been going here for a long time, it is part of our North Sac scene. Try it you will... More

This place is not on the beaten path. In fact it's not on any path you might choose to follow. But the food is really a find. I just had the best tuna melt I have ever eaten anywhere, bar none. The menu shows creative touches in the specials; the standbys are well-executed standbys. The service is really good. The... More

We stopped in for a quick breakfast. The veggie omelet was the best I have ever had. Maybe a bit too much cheese but the roasted tomatoes on top were wonderful! Unfortunately,

If you saw Uptown Cafe driving down the street, you would probably avoid it. But don't! This is truly a gem, hidden away in a terrible neighborhood, on a lousy street, but with some of the best tasting, hearty meals you you can find, for a decent price! George, his family, and his staff make you feel like you are... More

At first glance this is a "dive".... it is a mixture of old furniture and carpet with some updated features--lights, plants, nicknacks etc. We love and appreciate this type of place as it feels "real" and is not a corporate clone, (chain restaurant). It is in an old building with a wonderful mural on the outside wall of a theater... More
