Orphan Breakfast House serves old favorites with healthy, low-fat, low-sodium options in heaping portions. It is an extension of the local Naked Coffee family, and its name comes from the tern ‘orphan business,’ meaning a small operating business unit that does not integrate into a larger business sector and is not supported or funded by a larger entity or commercial sponsor. Their pancakes, sweet corn breakfast tamales, roast beef hash, avocado scramble, and rosemary potatoes have turned the place into one of the most popular breakfast spots in Sacramento.

With artisanal breads baked out in the open and incredibly delicious pastries, Les Baux is known for being the neighborhood café with some of the best tasting food and baked goods around. The Orange pancakes, made with orange juice and topped with fresh strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries, are an extremely popular breakfast choice, as is the worker’s breakfast with two perfectly scrambled or fried eggs, tasty applewood smoked bacon, and a fruity toast. They also serve freshly brewed drip coffee, with favorites like the mocha freeze and the espressos. With their meals, they also offer a complimentary basket of house baked bread served with local EVOO and flavored salt combination that works really well. The rest of their menu consists of French, Vietnamese, and American fusion of great eats, most notably the delicious Banh Mi.
