Brunch Recommendations for a Sac Foodies Reader

Today we received an e-mail from a Sac Foodies reader asking for brunch recommendations. We started to write her back when we realized we had so many ideas that we should share them on the blog!

The E-mail: “I was wondering if you can recommend a comfortable, somewhat inexpensive, yummy place to have brunch at this Sunday for a group of friends and I. We try to get together for brunch at least once am month and try not to go to the same place twice.”


Julie Ficker – “My fav is Tower Cafe. But allow time, there is almost always a 20 – 30 minute wait.”

Liz Conant – “The Riverside Clubhouse is great for large groups and has a fun indoor/outdoor indoor patio – plus they take reservations. Or, if you want something a little more edgy, try Ink Eats & Drinks and don’t miss the make-your-own Bloody Mary bar.”

Kris Caputo Hurley – “I love Roxy!”

Jenna Kirkwood – “A place that’s totally out of the way, but a really cool place to go for brunch is the Ryde Hotel in Walnut Grove. It’s an old hotel right by the river that used to house a Speakeasy in the basement during prohibition. They’ve kept a real art deco feel to it and do a huge champagne brunch. Or, my stand-by brunch spot is Awful Annie’s – both the Auburn and Lincoln locations are great for leisurley breakfasts with friends.”

Brittany Mohr – “I’m a Café Bernardo fan all the way! Highly recommend the eggs bernardo if you’re a benedict fan!”

    Thanks for the great tips. I’m totally going to check these out.
    I like the food at the Village Bistro out in Fair Oaks Village – great omlettes and benedicts.

    Hoppy’s! They have some great options for Sunday brunch and you get a 22 oz. beer in a bottle for free to take home. It was definitely an added bonus after a delicious meal. The first time I went there, I turned it down because I didn’t want beer with my breakfast. It took a while before I understood I could take it to go. That was quite a conversation!

    The Ryde Hotel in Walnut Grove does a fabulous champagne brunch – the champagne is actually really good! I believe Rio City Cafe in Old Sac also does a champagne brunch.

    Best deal on Mimosas in town is probably at Capitol Garage – $4.95 unlimited mimosas! Also, Ink Eats & Drinks has champagne specials during brunch.
