Restaurant

“OneSpeed Pizza is one of the best in town. Grab some fries and a pizza (side of aioli is a must!). Their specials are usually a pasta, a pizza and a dish. These are usually excellent, and I order from here more frequently than the regular menu! ”

Coffee Shop

“A cute little coffee shop right down the street from Trader Joe's. They encourage talking and connecting with people, so you won't find WiFi here! ”

“This is a great specialty food store with a great selection of harder-to-find foods (particularly European), a great wine and beer selection, and a diverse deli. If you're looking for a fun treat, their chocolate covered caramel graham crackers with sea salt are AMAZING!!”

“A quaint, authentic, lively little french cafe. A favorite! William, from Lyon, France, is so charming and does all the cooking, including house made pate and smoked salmon. Really good food!”

Deli / Bodega
$$
“Get a picnic lunch for the road at Roxie’s Deli & BBQ, an East Sacramento corner store with a retro feel and sandwiches that will feed two adults for less than $10. A local favorite is the messy Meatball Mafia sandwich ($9.65) with smashed meatballs, provolone, and Parmesan cheeses, topped with tomatoes, onions, and jalapeños.”

Point of Interest
“Really nice neighborhood grocery store that stocks a lot of local specialties (like Pies and baked goods from Freeport Bakery) in addition to a solid selection of everything else. A casual 15 minute walk through our charming neighborhood gets you there. Small eatery inside has bar, food and Gunther's Ice Cream (another local favorite). ”

Route
“American River Trail can be walked, run or biked. It goes for approximately 35 miles and is only has a few areas that are moderately difficult to bike (slight hills). It's a great place to start or end your day with a stroll down a place that offers some of the best views possible. ”
