- Tower Cafe, Broadway Sacramento - I'm not a French toast girl. I like eggs and bacon when I go out and French toast is just something you do when you have old bread, Tower changed that for me. The toast is dipped in a special custard and is crispy on the outside and gooey delicious on the inside. It's served with seasonal fruit compote and magical whip cream. The restaurant's been given all sorts of awards and written up in magazines as the best breakfast place in Sacramento, so it's not just me. The decor is something to see, artifacts from all over the world and they also have exceptional patio dining.
- Fox and Goose Public House, 10th and R Sacramento - This English Pub is a busy place weekend mornings. The wait for a table can be long but is made better by all the happy people drinking coffee and bloody marys. My favorite thing at F&G are the ollalaberry scones with Devonshire cream and a side of grilled tomatoes. The Pub is located in what appears to be an old warehouse and the building is incredible. High vaulted ceilings and lots of vintage British beer advertisements. Even if you hate scones, it's worth a look.
- Golden Harvest, Arcata and Eureka - My Humboldt readers know the GH really well, or they should. It's by far one of the best breakfast restaurants in Humboldt. The thing that makes Golden Harvest special is how freshness of the food and the home-made apple sauce.
- Brio Cafe, the Plaza Arcata - Brio is something I miss and crave from Humboldt. I used to swing by there on my way to work for a melt-in-your-mouth ham and cheese croissant and deliciously smooth fresh dripped coffee. The ambiance is very European and if the weather cooperates the outdoor dining is fabulous.
