Funny how things happen in life... My son, Matthew and I had been talking for... literally... for several years about enjoying breakfast together at Rocket Shop Caf, but it wasn't until his untimely passing that I had the opportunity to enjoy a fine breakfast at Rocket Shop Caf.  


Photo: Rocket Shop Caf is located in a metal building at the Bakersfield Municap Airport, next to the tower.  The restauant is a popular destination for pilots, as you can tie down your airplane next to the restauant.


Photo:  The dining room offers lots of comfortable seating, a full-service bar, and a gift shop that sells a wide variety of NASCAR gear.


Photo:  Friday, February 24, 2012, our friendly server, Kristen,  takes our breakfast orders.

Photo:  Robbin and Tara look on as Kresten places my order of chicken fried sausage on the table.  My late son, Matthew, had recommended that I try the chicken fried sausage, as he knew that I like to try different entres for breakfast.


Photo:  Yes, that's right, chicken fried sausage patties.  To my knowledge, Rocket ShopCaf is the only restaurant in the state of California that offers chicken fried sausage... My delicious breakfast of biscuits and gravy, two eggs , over easy, homestyle potatoes, chicken fried sausage patties, and more gravy.  This breakfast was delicious!

Photo:  We were back in town a week later, so I took my wife, daughter and granson to Rocket Shop Caf for breakfast.  Our friendly server, Tracy, was more than happy to have me take her picture.

Rocket Shop Caf serves a very distinctive breakfast, as where else in the world are you able to enjoy chicken fried bacon or sausage?  Distinction aside, Rocket Shop Caf serves a great breakfast, and they're staffed by friendly people.  If you're a frequent flyer, a lover of a great breakfast, or a person who enjoys Bakersfield cuisine, then Rocket Shop Caf is your kind of restaurant...
