Well, with this place a pancake isn't just a pancake. They have many different choices and you can order them as singles. Keep in mind you must bring cash because it's cash and carry. Great servers that work with you to save you money when you order. Coffee is brewed by the cup and there are no free refills of... More

We had yoghurt with granola and pancakes. There is a little terrace so we sat outside even though it was Winter it was very nice. The waitress would come every five minutes to ask if every thing was okay and if we needed more water, I guess that's an american thing we're not really used to, but it kinda annoyed... More

Parking is a problem - but only because the restaurant is so popular. Be patient and courteous and you will be rewarded with a delicious and unique breakfast. Drip coffee - strong. Menu choices vary from healthy to indulgent. Every time I plan to get something healthy/delicious like the Zen Breakfast with the yummy ginger-soy sauce. Then, the waitstaff walks... More

My daughter had the Orphan French Toast and I had the Avocado Scramble. Both dishes presented well especially the French Toast with the fruits. Both were very flavorful and health conscious meals. The atmosphere is casual with roll up garage doors that give it great appeal.

Breakfast every day 7 AM - 2 PM, Lunch M-F only 11 AM to 2 PM. Located in a residential neighborhood, not far off of Business 80 in Sacramento, it's a very popular spot for breakfast; regular favorites with a spin. Don't be in a rush as there are only a few tables (4 small outside) so the wait for... More

Really....in this town with the fresh food available you use powdered scrambled eggs? My husband worked in dining commons in college & was sorely disappointed that Orphans scrambled eggs were almost inedible. That's why I get my egg poached! The cornmeal blueberry pancakes are worth coming back for. Especially with the side of fruit purée to add instead of syrup.... More

This restaurant is an excellent choice for breakfast! It's quaint, nestled in a residential environment, serving a great selection of breakfast menu items that are reminiscent of food fresh from the farm. I was pleasantly surprised by how affordable this place is considering the quality of the food and the location. It is indeed a hidden gem!
