California Best Breakfast & Brunch

Eat a lumberman's breakfast at the Samoa cookhouse, Humboldt County

We invite your group to stop in and visit the historical Samoa Cookhouse. Once you walk through our door, you will take a step back into the early days of the of the lumber and logging industry. As the last surviving cookhouse of the west, all meals are still served "lumber camp" style. Your food is brought to the table in large bowls and platters, allowing you to help yourself and pass it around. We always offer seconds, so no one walks away from the table hungry. After eating in one of our traditional dining rooms, your group is welcome to browse our complimentary museum full of relics and photographs from the old logging and Cookhouse days.

Never Closed, Never Without A Customer. The Original Pantry Cafe, Los Angeles.

More than just a casual eatery, The Pantry offers diners an atmosphere rich in character and history. An integral piece of Los Angeles culture, The Pantry has served many movie stars, politicians and other celebrities and continues to be a gathering spot for the city's movers and shakers.

As The Pantry's current owner, former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan likes to boast, "We never close. We're never without a customer."

At Cafe Bernardo (in Sacramento, Roseville or Davis) you can choose from Amaretto French Toast, Black Forest Ham Omelet or Eggs Bernardo (eggs Benedict with rosemary bread instead of english muffin)

Delish!

My friend Rocket Ron used to say that the three most important rules of life included "never eat at a place called Mom's". He must not have meant Mama's In San Francisco.

Mighty Delicious. Get there early. Have the french toast.

Rocket Ron's other rule --- Never play cards with a man named Doc.
