While attending the International Food Blogger Conference Jerald and I were invited to brunch by Patrick Storm, from the Lemon Tree Agency, who was also attending the conference. Patrick had made reservation (recommended) and we were seated promptly. We each ordered an item from the menu and shared them family style giving us an opportunity to try three different dishes and the tater tots, of course!
We all wanted to try the Truffle Tater Tots and they were on point. The truffle flavor was just enough and it wasn’t over whelming or lacking. I love them! I highly recommend them!
Patrick ordered the Chicken and Waffles and I have had chicken and waffles a few times in the past, including the famous Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles in Los Angeles. I would say that the chicken and waffles was the best I have had so far. They top the perfectly cooked Belgian waffle with maple butter, and the batter on the fried chicken is soft and crispy with so much flavor. The chicken was cooked to perfection, and the gravy was absolutely phenomenal!
I am a big fan of the breakfast sandwich and enjoy some variation weekly. The Breakfast Waffle Sandwich was my selection and I was not disappointed. Using a Belgian waffle in place of bread wasn’t something I had tried or even considered before. And I am not sure why not! The waffles sandwiched scrambled eggs, bacon, Fontina cheese and has a light drizzle of maple syrup on the top, absolutely delicious. The sandwich also came with breakfast potatoes that were crispy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside, very good.
Jerald ordered the Cafeteria 15L Skillet that consisted of eggs, pork sausage, chicken apple sausage and black forest ham scramble placed on top of tater tots and topped with Fontina cheese. Both the pork and chicken apple sausage had good flavor as did the black forest ham and you cant go wrong with Fontina cheese. However, the eggs were a little over cooked for me and the sourdough was cold.
If you find yourself in downtown Sacramento on a weekend you need to check out the brunch at Cafeteria 15L you wont be disappointed. Just remember to make a reservation so you wont have to wait an hour to be seated.
