We came up to stay at the Black Oak Casino for July 4th weekend. Casino coffee shop a very limited menu so we yelped "best breakfast in Sonora" and this gem of a cafe popped up at #1...now I know why. Not too much to...look at from the road, but once inside you quickly realize that this cafe is not the greasy spoon I expected. Place was clean. We were greeted and seated by Violet the owner. Food was amazing. My husband had Joe's special and I had pancakes. Coffee was fresh and the food was plentiful and made with freshest of ingredients. We had planned to come back the next day for lunch on our way back to Bay Area, but we ran out of time. Will definitely be back next time we're up in Sonara...More

Most Mexican restaurants don’t do very well with big menus this is not the case they have great salads and other offerings it’s all fresh and tasty 😋

The Foothills Cafe was recommended by the motel staff where we stayed the night before. The place does not look like much from the outside but once you walk inside it s truly a restaurant. Many selections are listed on menu for breakfast and lunch...at reasonable prices. Omelets were large with lots of filing in them. Pancakes were good size and very good. The locals eat here as well.More

Clean and well appointed, this place seems very popular with the locals. I found the prices good, the food good, and generous portions. Had a tasty avocado and bacon omelet. Home style hash browns, fully buttered sourdough toast. This is a family business, very friendly...was my experience. Especially appreciated their being open Easter Sunday, as a traveler. Open 7-2, T-Sun.More

We stopped in this cafe for a late breakfast and found a jewel. I ordered breakfast with scrambled eggs and biscuits. The biscuits were huge and fluffy. I could not eat everything. It was very good. My wife ordered a hamburger since it was late...morning. She said it was one of the best hamburgers she has ever had and she is an expert. She gave me a bite and I agreed it was very good. We will eat here again when in Sonora.More
