A hipster coffee shop if there ever was one, Old Soul Co. will entice even the most skeptical of patrons. The cafe takes the old soul part of their name to heart, with its vintage and stripped-down simplistic atmosphere. When it began in 2006, Old Soul Co. didn’t even have a register but instead used a pewter jar and didn’t even have set hours. However, they have evolved more as the years have passed but still hold on to that classic sensibility. Great coffee and food is not just expected, it’s promised.

Crepeville is a family-run restaurant started all the way back in 1990 that brings a twist to the breakfast game. Their menu has nearly 30 variations of crepe dishes. They have many savory crepes, like the Florentine crepe with cheddar, spinach, cottage cheese and onions, or the Mediterranean crepe with grilled eggplant, pesto, tomato, onions, roasted red peppers and cheddar cheese. There are also plenty of sweet crepes. These include the classic strawberry crepe with fresh strawberries, cinnamon, and brown sugar, or the honey-lemon blitz with ricotta cheese.

Seriously, if one happens to be in the Sacramento area, or California or even North America, then it is highly recommend that they stop and eat at Bacon & Butter. The restaurant uses only the freshest ingredients and does its best to change up the menu regularly. Like the name suggests, bacon is the main ingredient in many of the dishes, often used in an exciting new way. There is the bacon and peach fritters, bacon and chocolate chip cookies and even the grilled cheese Benedict, which is out-of-this-world.
