Granite Rock Grill takes breakfast seriously, as their web page states their motto, which reads: "Home of the BEST breakfast in the greater Sacramento Valley/Placer area.  That's quite a statement, so on Friday, March 30, 2012, the Sacramento Breakfast Club held today's meeting at Granite Rock Grill, so we could see if their motto is really true.


Photo:  Granite Rock Grill seems small from the outside, but inside, the dining room is very spacious, and offers a mixture of comfortable tables and booths.  For a restaurant that serves only breakfast and lunch, Granite Rock Grill has one of the larger dining rooms of area restaurants.


Photo:  Our server, Rosa, takes our order.  She pushed three tables together to accommodate today's members. Only a portion of the dining room is shown in the photo, but it gives an idea of how large this room is.  The mural on the wall is a reminder of years gone by, when the restaurant was known as "Gold Miner Cafe."


Photo:  Granite Rock Grill features a small, yet comfortable breakfast counter.  When I dine alone, I always sit at the breakfast counter, as I like to be near the action.

Photo:  Rosa poses for the camera, with a portion of our breakfast she's about to place on the table.  Rosa and all of the staff at Granite Rock Grill are some of the friendliest folks we're had the pleasure to meet, and are very attentive, and make you feel at home.  I give Granite Rock Grill the "coffee cup refill award," as there was one staff member who seemed to be dedicated to keeping coffee cups full, and my coffee cup never went below the half-full mark.  I lost count of how many cups of coffee I drank after my 10th cup.  Seriously...


Photo:  I had originally planned to order only eggs, potatoes, toast and coffee, but Rosa recited today's specials, and one of them was an Italian sausage omelet, which she called a "pizza omelet," and since I'm a sucker for Italian sausage, I changed my mind and followed her recommendation.  The omelet included Italian sausage, salami, bell peppers, onions, parsley, cheese and I don't know what else.  I ordered homestyle potatoes, with optional gravy, coffee and sourdough toast.  Rosa was right on the money with her recommendation, as this breakfast was superior!  The portion was absolutely GIANT, as I couldn't eat it all, even after kicking every bit of eating power that I possess.  This breakfast was delicious!  By the way, Granite Rock Grill's menu features a vast array of breakfast choices, with everything from super-healthy fruit and cereal, to calorie-bomb breakfasts, such as the breakfast I enjoyed today.  Whatever you desire for breakfast, you'll find it at Granite Rock Grill.

Breakfast at Granite Rock Grill is an awesome experience, as the dining room is huge, attractive and very comfortable, the staff is super friendly and attentive, the portions are gigantic, the presentation is beautiful, and the food is simply delicious.  As fast as the question goes, "Does Granite Rock Grill serve the best breakfast in the region?"  ... I can't answer that question, but I can tell you that Granite Rock Grill serves a breakfast that members of the Sacramento Breakfast Club will be talking about for a long time to come.
