Putah Creek Cafe

Hello friends!

I hope that your week has been good thus far. There will most likely be no post on either Thursday or Friday, but hopefully I will have one up Monday or sometime over the weekend. I’m going away this weekend, so whilst there will be stuff to blog about, I probably won’t have my computer. We’ll see. Also, how are you liking the daily blogging so far? I won’t stick with it – maybe four or five days a week. But still, tell me your thoughts, s’il vous plaît.

Today is my brother’s birthday, so we went out to breakfast, since he really enjoys breakfast foods (who doesn’t?). We never normally go out for breakfast for birthdays, but since he is turning 18, something has to be a little more special, don’t you think?

The best breakfast in my area is probably Putah Creek Cafe. Putah Creek is a restaurant located in downtown Winters, CA that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, and is known for their wood fire oven pizza. I personally have only ever visited for breakfast, but the menu is so wide that there’s always something new to try.

The cafe itself is quite spacious inside with a seating arrangement reminiscent of a diner in the front and actual restaurant tables in the back, as well as an outdoor patio. I prefer to sit outside, since the cafe is located on a corner across from a park on one side and shops on the other. It’s fun to people watch and enjoy the sun before it gets too hot outside.

Despite the wide range of options, I almost always get the same thing. Call it routine – I call it delicious. That order is typically a Belgian waffle, in some cases the Griddle Breakfast – which is one griddle item with two eggs and a slice or two of bacon. The waffle is perfectly sized, light and airy, and served with whipped butter and maple syrup. It’s something even Leslie Knope would be mesmerized by.

Matt got chicken fried steak, which I don’t see the appeal in. I’m honestly not sure what it is, but he assured me it’s amazing, so if you’re more into biscuits and gravy type breakfasts, the chicken fried steak is probably a good option for you. He normally gets the Rancher’s Breakfast, which includes – bear with me here – two eggs, bacon, potatoes, and two pancakes. Insane, right? Always leaves you feeling full but satisfied.

Putah Creek Cafe is not only famous to the locals; the diner was featured on Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. However, most of the crowd you’ll find there is composed of Winters residents. The close-knit community is always spotted munching on eggs, burgers, or pizza, and catching up. I love the homey feel of the diner, which is why I decided to feature it as my first restaurant post on the blog.

If you’re ever in the area, make sure to stop by Putah Creek Cafe. And get the waffles. Or don’t. Everything there is good.

    The food looks really good!! Happy birthday to your brother, 18 is a big one 🙂 I don’t think I could stomach your brother’s breakfast choices haha. I would go for your waffles for sure. (Secret: Puta in Portuguese is a bad word). Love ya.

      Thank you so much! I agree, his breakfast didn’t look very good to me either! And that’s funny! Putah Creek is an actual creek that runs through most of Northern CA (:

    Smothered in white sauce, eh? 😉 I would not mind it at all. I am assuming that is the chicken steak. I am sure the waffles made your day.
    You have a wonderful weekend, Natalie xx
