Davis has a handful of notable options, from Café Bernardo to Caffé Italia, but last Sunday I wanted something a little different than the typical Benedict.

Taste of Davis 2011

by

When people ask me where I grew up, I usually respond by saying “Davis, California” followed at lightning-speed by a supporting qualifier: “It’s just outside of Sacramento.” But more and more, I’m noticing there’s no need to put my hometown on the map in such a way. Lately, my response has been met with comments […]
