Estelle Bakery and Patisserie is now finally open on Arden Way. We've been waiting patiently for like Two Years but they finally opened their doors. We went opening day 1/13 to sample the limited supply of goodies and check the space. Then we went back on the 28th when they had more things ready to be consumed.
Very neutral white but the bakers put on a show behind the glass. Still a wok in progress even as they push forth with another location in that hip DOCO.
The Tower Cafe has always been a hopping spot for breakfast. Great tasty food and a great space.
Breakfast for Dinner is such a great concept

Tahoe Park Community
Hate struck Sacramento and the community came out. Momo's Meat Market and the Barbershop next door in Tahoe Park were vandalized as a Hate Crime. The community rallied around for support as the Hate hit home.
Driving home one day I noticed a sign at some just recently built buildings occupy the old site of TGI Fridays near the Howe Ave at Fulton intersection. Three restaurant are going in right next to Buca Di Peppo.
The one that jumped at me was Paris Baguette. Sounds Frenchy Oui. So after a quick online search I realized they were a chain(go figure) and had a few locations in the SF Bay Area. Since we were going to the Bay Area anyway I though we' check out the place. Find out more here.
It delivers. Wow I'm ready for the Sacramento grand opening with baited taste buds. My wife and I went to a location in Burlingame of the Penninsula below SF and this place was cool. White subway tile all over with wood accents and the employees wearing Frenchy striped shirts and Berets. It was a cool hip bistro where for the most part you can serve yourself. it had a grab and go area for savory and a few racks for cold drinks and dessert cups while you had to order drinks at the counter where you pay.
The piece de resistance was something that reminded us of a Las Vegas confectionery buffet. Two rows of so many sugary treats it was a spectacle just to behold as our mouths dropped and salivated at the same time. Of course my eyes were bigger than my diabetes system so I grabbed too much ready for the coma.
Loved this place and can't wait till it actually opens in Sac. So consider this post reconnaissance and get ready for your sugar rush when the doors open.

The wife and I used to enjoy going to Le Baux Bakery on Folsom BLVD for breakfast. They tweaked their presentation and food and eventually closed in a bit of a Restaurant Shell Game. The concept is now alive inside the La Bou on Howe Ave. It's a bit of a mix but mostly La Bou with the Le Baux food. The new owner who also owns the La Bou is trying to figure the new Le Baux concept out and is keeping it alive.
Sans drama it's the old La Bou with a bit of Les Baux which is good. Can't wait for the full concept to come to fruition. Till then the Wife & I wiill have to keep dropping by for the Croissant bread pudding waiting for the next pastry to drop in Les Baux's growth.
Fish Face Poke Bar
In a quest for us to remember our trip to Maui we visited Fish Face in the Warehouse Artist Lofts. Big chunks of Ahi Tuna with a Hoisin sauce and other goodness. Plus we went with a musubi roll that was a work in progress. Fish Face puts it together for you but then you have to assemble it and roll your own so as to speak. Check out Fish Face.
Empress was built for those who are carnivores. Really high quality with some presentation and branding in a great space. Do yourself a flavor and have the short rib and gravy Poutine. What a way to go.
Bacon and Butter
Some nice graffiti flair in the books used for paying the bill. We wrote some flair ourselves but loved these.
