“If you fancy a traditional English breakfast, this is the spot for you! With fantastic scones (ask for extra Devonshire cream) and plenty of options, this is one of Sacramento's favorite brunch spots. After you eat, walk up the R Street corridor to check out the Public Market, tea shop, fun bars, and more! ”

“Mikuni’s restaurant in the historic East End Lofts building in midtown Sacramento is alive with the flavors of New York and San Francisco. Utterly cosmopolitan, it boasts a vibrancy and energy that generate an irresistible draw. Art is everywhere in this ultra-cool restaurant—from the amazing intricacy of exquisite sushi rolls to the extraordinary beauty of female Japanese warriors whose likenesses adorn the walls. It is truly a place to see and be seen—amidst the bright lights, bold colors, and the undeniable hum of excitement in the air. And with its three sushi bars, drinks bar replete with exotic concoctions, and many large, flat-screen televisions, you may never feel the need to leave.”

“If you're hungry for Mexican food, Tres Hermanas is the place to be! Try to get there early, as there is typically a line to get in, but it is well worth the wait. ”

“Great place to gather and have fun. It may be a little loud for some. Pitchers of sangria are a must. Bread is good, but add the $1 dipping sauce and it gets way better.”
