Maestro Coffee
I've been trying to break the STBX habit for years. I have nearly done so (by about 90%) thanks mostly to this wonderful little establishment. They have an ever changing display of art (paintings, photos, drawings, etc), greeting cards, a community board, great tasty treats, and VERY tasty drinks. I've recently started switching from regular mocha to white mocha when I order my nutty carmel or toffee mocha and they are DELICIOUS. I make it here at least once a week to get my caffeine fix. The owner is always so kind and tries his hardest to remember what I order. I will admit, I don't make it easy on him as I have a habit of switching my order quite often. I almost always get an almond croissant, which are delicious warmed. It's only about 5 minutes out of my way from home to work and it's just what I need to pick me up on those mornings I'd otherwise be suffering until lunch.P.S. If you're going to that other place quite often do yourself a favor and try this place out. The drinks are cheaper and better. Also, try totalling up how much your caffeine habit costs you per year. OUCH. I'd say the drinks here are about $1 less than you'd get from the green mermaid. Treats are DEFINATELY more affordable.

Chops Steaks Seafood and Bar
We booked a very large party here for a retirement celebration and i would never recommend this place for that size event. They have a "banquet room" in the basement and it is extremely dark and the way the room is set up it forced 1/3 of the guests to be very segregated and not a part of the group. the ambiance is terrible. the servers were very unhelpful and really didnt do much besides bring the food out and clear the plates. never asked how things were, or helped with drinks or the cake. lastly, they overcharged us for the food. We gave them an order ahead of time of who will be eating what and when a mistake occurred (before the food was served) and we tried to fix it they said too bad we will have to just pay for the extra (even though there was no extra). Never again!i almost forgot to mention. the food was terrible. The pasta they served us was watered down and had no flavor. all the guests that ordered the pasta didn't even eat it.

The Golden Bear
Don't let the one star review from 2007 scare you away. This is a smaller venue so if you don't luck out with seating right away, you may have to wait, but it is worth it. I prefer to sit outside on the patio - where it is nice an enclosed and great for a little people watching of all the beer goers that are visiting the beer garden next door. Their food is incredible. Anything on the dinner menu (I like the bahn mi), but breakfast is what I prefer (only there are too many options!). The breakfast tacos are enough to feed two, the lucy burger is perfectly topped with an egg and I prefer their breakfast pizza with jalapenos added. IF you ever get the urge, don't hesitate to go!

Hawks Provisions & Public House
Hawks serves up delicious eats and great cocktails, in a cozy little spot on the corner. The only reason I give 4 out of 5 stars is because they only take reservations for 6+, but the venue is quite small and half their tables are only for two. I tried making a reservation for 5 to no avail and when I arrived an hour ahead of my party it was an 1 1/2 wait. But what I found frustrating at that point is the hostess had been taking any parties for all sizes and putting them on the wait list if they called later that night. Overall, I'll be back but with a party of 6 or earlier in the evening!

Mimi's Cafe
We went here for lunch today. LOTS of people waiting with a lot of empty tables, but we waited anyway. After we finally got seated the waitress came right over and gave us some coffee. Then we waited some more. She took our order and I'm sure it was at least half an hour before we got our 1/2 sandwich and bowl of soup. I looked in the rear seating area and it was almost empty. Still, there were people waiting. We were in the restaurant from 12:05 until 1:30! They must have been having employee problems. Food was delicious though.

Mulvaney's B & L
Mulvaney's is a really high class resturant. My friend and I dined here over the past weekend and were really impressed by the food, wine selection, and service.The resturant was pretty busy which is probably why it took a little while for us to get our entrees once we placed our order. Our server was very attentive though and was very courteous.The wine pairing with our meals based on the server's recommendation was perfect.If you are looking for a nice evening out in downtown Sacramento, you can't go wrong with Mulvaney's!

The Porch
I really tried to like this place, but with every new chance I gave it, something else would go horribly wrong. I'm a huge fan of service and their's leaves something to be desired. One night we waited over an hour for our food, without so much of an explanation, and they would never stop at our table for us even to order a drink during that time. The only thing I would go back for is their fried green tomatoes, but I can find those else where. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. I won't be back.

Temple Coffee
The coffee is pretty good but the place itself is a little pretentious and very pricey. The service and coffee has never been good or bad and I was never encouraged to do a review based on any experience I have ever had.....until today! I am 7 months pregnant and ordered a small vanilla latte and the inexperienced ignorant cashier asked me "Are you sure you wouldn't want decaf by chance?" implying I shouldn't have caffeine. I understand this review may be emotionally and hormonally biased but I don't care.

Tower Cafe
PEANUT BUTTER TART! I don't need to say more, but since I have to.... The dessert case is amazing and it's so decadent. With an array of refreshing options. If you are a foodie and haven't tried this place it is a must. Quirky atmosphere, very busy.. Great patio! The French toast is lovely and I have heard of this colossal grilled cheese with 5cheese? ....only served during the week. Oh, come on... I can only get there on the weekend..����

Freeport Bar & Grill
This is a great dining experience, good food, good wine selection, a great atmosphere and great ambiance. You will find the food to be hearty, full of flavor and fully enjoyable. It is an dining experience you will want to go back for again and again. Friday Nights it's pack, with people who like to sing. Sacramento New & Review "Sammy Awards" also gave this place a great rating. I think you will also when you come out to eat or sing on Fridays.

Just a moment...
