“GATHERING PLACE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

The Purple Place is a gathering place for friends with a laid back attitude. It looks like fun when you pull into the parking lot.

Service is very good. The menu runs from salads to burgers and sandwiches. Everything the people in our party has was good. The garlic fries are excellent. Prices are a good value.

“A tradition in El Dorado Hills”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

Nestled in a small strip mall set between the eastern edge of Folsom and the west end of El Doraldo Hills, the Purple Place has been a bar-fare favorite for years. When you drive by Green Valley Road, check out the cars in the small parking lot. They are almost all there for the burgers and beer. They manage all three meals every day with consistent quality. Breakfasts there are plentiful and traditional. It can get lively when the after dinner crowd flows in but it is a wonderful gathering place for lunch or breakfast. The staff are very helpful and friendly.

“Breakfast Does Not Get Better Than This”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Purple Place is a great breakfast place. They have the absolute best hash browns in the area and the balance of their breakfast menu holds its own too. They also do a great job of taking care of the kids too with some unique activities for them as well as a great kids menu. Highly recommend.

“Don't judge it by the exterior.....this place has some GOOD food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

You'll find many locals here any day of the week. But it is just as comfortable a place for travelers to stop for Sunday breakfast or any meal. The place is much larger than it appears from outside. There is a second room with a full bar. The staff is super friendly and the food is good and plentiful. Very family and kid friendly.
