How quickly time flies when you're spending your time enjoying breakfast!  Looking at past articles, it has been nearly five years since the Sacramento Breakfast Club held a meeting at Evan's Kitchen... my how time flies! Today, Friday, April 25, 2014, we decided to re-visit Evan's, to see what we'd been missing...

Photo:  Evan's Kitchen is located in Sacramento's 57th Street Antique Row, sandwiched between two antique stores, in a small shopping center, dedicated to the joy of shopping for antiques.  Evan's Kitchen is the ONLY non-antique business in the shopping center, so that makes it easy to locate when you're in the mood for a delicious breakfast. The outdoor dining tables, the potted flowers, not to mention a grill and a smoker also offer clues as to the fact that Evan's is a restaurant, not an antique store.  Then, there's the heavenly aroma of fine, California, eclectic cuisine, floating on the breeze that greets you as you approach the restaurant...  On this rainy morning in late April, we elected to dine inside, but when we visit Evan's this summer, we plan to dine outside.

Photo:  We walked in and were greeted by friendly Debbie, who's main job is to seat guests and take care of the cash register.  When she's not seating guests or running the cash register, she pours coffee.  At Evan's Kitchen, your coffee cup will never run dry of some of the finest coffee served in Sacramento.

Evan's Kitchen and Catering is a comfortable place to enjoy a delicious breakfast, and the dining room decor is functional, attractive, and very comfortable.  Attractive booths line the perimeter of the dining room, and the center is furnished with tables of various sizes, including a couple of tables that could easily fit eight or more diners.  All furniture is made of oak, which lends a warm, homey feeling to the dining room.  Wall decorations are quite sparse, which adds to the open, uncluttered look to the dining room, and makes it appear larger than it actually is.  The main focal point of the dining room is an imposing wine cabinet, stocked with fine wines, and strategically-placed white boards are printed with daily specials.  To add a fresh, elegant touch, a vase of fresh orchids graces each table.

Photo:  Our server, Alex, brings Mary's breakfast of Eggs Benedict, and David's choice of a "Evan's Favorite " to our table.  Service is friendly, fast and very efficient.  We were impressed with everything about Evan's Kitchen!

Photo:  At Evan's, as a side, you get your choice of a fruit bowl, or potatoes, so Mary chose fruit, to go with her "Traditional Eggs Benedict" breakfast.  Her friend, David, chose "Evan's Favorite," which is a three-egg omelet, featuring cheese, ground beef and spinach, covered in Evan's gravy, which is the best breakfast gravy that I have ever had the pleasure to enjoy.

Evan's breakfast menu features three pages of breakfast favorites, and its divided into four sections:  Family Favorites, Classic Benedicts, Three-Egg Omelets and Hearty Breakfasts.  Some of the selections are named quite creatively, with names such as "Gina Ba Bina," "The Big Al," or "Kevin's Connection."  The menu features something for every taste and is definitely a rung or two up the ladder from your typical truck stop diner, but the prices are very reasonable.  

If you're a connoisseur of fine coffee, Evan's is the place to be, as they serve some of the best coffee in Sacramento.  Another gigantic plus is that your coffee cup will never run dry, as the attentive staff seem to have developed a "sixth sense" of when its refill time.  Another huge plus is that you don't have to fiddle around opening little containers of cream, as the cream at Evan's is in a small pitcher, which doesn't drip and make a mess when your pour cream into your coffee mug.

Photo:  My breakfast of "Hugo's Hash and Eggs" which is corned beef hash, two eggs cooked to order - in my case, over easy - toast - sourdough for me - along with some of the best coffee in Sacramento.  I HAD to order a side of Evan's gravy, which is the best breakfast gravy that I've ever eaten.  Using my fork, I dipped the potatoes into the gravy, one-by-one, and absolutely was transported to "Cloud 9," as Evan's gravy is the best breakfast gravy that I've ever eaten. The corned beef hash was fresh, delicious, and made in-house.  Note the eggs are perfectly cooked; ditto with the potatoes.  Evan's Kitchen serves an absolutely superior breakfast!

Evan's Kitchen and Catering is the sort of restaurant that you'll want to visit with your wife, as it's a comfortable, special place.  Combine exceptionally friendly service, fresh, skillfully prepared cuisine, and a comfortable, family-friendly atmosphere, and the best breakfast gravy EVER, Evan's adds up to an exceptional breakfast dining experience.
