  •  “Don’t be fooled by the name, the Health Nut Pancakes at Placerville’s Sweetie’s Pies—which boast a blend of rolled oats, walnuts and cinnamon in the eatery’s scratch-made buttermilk batter—are as tasty as any flapjack I’ve ever indulged in! Not only are they monstrous, but the multiple flavors of fresh jams and syrups are fun to experiment with too.”
  • “The Ham and Cheese Croissant at Sierra Rizing in Lotus is the absolute best. Baked fresh, buttery-sweet and filled with melty cheese and salty ham, it’s a juxtaposition of flavors that wake my taste buds right up.” 
  • “I love the Hash Browns with grilled onions and house-made Biscuits and Gravy at Café El Dorado. It’s the perfect way to rise and shine, and the price is right.” 530-626-8865
  •  “When a hankering for a good morning meal hits, I always head straight for the Farmers Omelet at California Kitchen in Placerville. Stuffed to the max with ham, bacon, sausage, tomatoes, onions, avocado, jack and Cheddar cheeses, and served alongside fresh made, perfectly seasoned country potatoes, it fills my belly to the brim without weighing me down.” 530-622-7500
  • “I always order the Lobster Benedict at Diamond Springs Hotel. Grilled then diced lobster and perfectly poached eggs sit atop a toasted English muffin—all smothered in rich hollandaise sauce. Served alongside golden-brown hash browns, this morning meal of champions consistently receives rave reviews from my entire family.”
