“AHHHH”
Reviewed October 26, 2011

This is a really great breakfast. Crab Benedict. Regular bacon and eggs neither under-nor over cooked. Pancakes. What's not to like? This place is typical funk, uneven floors, posters on the walls. Its great. It reminds me of Juanita's Galley in Sausalito, where I worked in the 60's.
The patio is cool and pleasant with palm trees and plants in pots. The servers are experienced and not intrusive, the cofee is good too. And the food is GREAT.
I haven't tried lunch but I intend to. You should too.

“Worst breakfast in Sacramento”
Reviewed June 4, 2011

This dump has the worst breakfast in sacramento. The food is greasy and disgusting. Dennys makes a better breakfast without attitude from the servers. There is nothing worth ordering on the menu especially the eggs benedict which are supposed to be their specialty but are really just a sloppy mess of grease. Avoid this dump at all costs!

“A diamond in the rough”
Reviewed December 21, 2008

On a stretch of Del Paso Boulevard not known for haute cuisine is one of the Sacramento areas best breakfast and lunch establishments around. If you are seeking fine china and linen tablecloths go somewhere else. If it is generous portions of delicious food you want then you are definitely in the right place. George K. and his friendly staff at the Uptown Cafe have figured out what it takes to keep you coming back. Here's a hint from a regular: don't just look at the menu. Read the board that has the specials on it. Oh, by the way, they are now open on Sundays.

“Best Breakfast in Sacramento”
Reviewed April 14, 2008

I think my title says it all. Best damn bang for your buck in the Sacramento area. Not only that by everyone is nice and friendly and George the owner is a great guy.
I don't know about most of you, but I enjoy spending my money in a place that actually appreciates me coming in, that's the Uptown.
With inside and outside seating and generous portions of food, you can't go wrong with the Uptown.
