Waffle Barn is a small chain of restaurants that dot the greater Sacramento-area landscape, owned by the same folks, but each restaurant is unique in decour, but identical in service, menu, hospitality, and just about everthing that draws you into their store to enjoy a delicious breakfast.

Photo:  Friday, March 15, 2013, the Sacramento Breakfast Club decided to pay a repeat visit to Waffle Barn, as it had been almost six years since the last meeting!  Breakfast time flies, when you're having fun! 

Photo:  As soon as you enter The Waffle Barn, through their double doors, you're greeted by a friendly cashier, and a white board that lists the daily specials.  As the photo shows, the restaurant features a full breakfast counter, which is appropriate for a restaurant that is open for breakfast and lunch only.  Waffle Barn as a split dining room arrangement, as you can either sit to the left, or go down the wide aisle, passing the breakfast bar and the kitchen to you left, as you enter another dining room to the right of the cashier's station.  Our friendly cashier seated us in the dining room to the right, and we couldn't help but to notice the quite funky decor attached to the upper walls, such as brooms, bicycle frames, signs and bicycle handlebars.  I scratched my head and pondered the question:  "Have I ever seen bicycle parts attached to a wall in a restaurant during by breakfast clubbing days?"  Not ever, nor in a New York minutes.  To top it off, Waffle Barn proudly flies a winged pig, painted pink from the ceiling, located above the cashier's station. Maybe their mascot pig is just for luck, or maybe it's just an indication of the fine breakfast that you'll enjoy at The Waffle Barn.  Whatever the case, it works for the Sacramento Breakfast Club.

The food...  how could I describe our breakfast?  Let's see... Delicious!  Wonderful!  Perfect!  Good value? ... Yes!! Take a tip from the Sacramento locals, as this place offers delicious food, friendly, efficient service, at a price that everybody and afford.  Oh yes, you won't walk away hungry, as you'll probably ask for one of their styrafoam containers to cart a portion of your meal home, to enjoy another day.  

Photo:  The breakfast menu is "gigantic," and features anything a breakfast lover could ever wish for.  If you love potatoes, you have your choice between hash browns or home style, complete with diced bell peppers and onions.  You can order several varieties of toast, English muffin, or... biscuits and gravy!  Yes, of course!  The food is delicious and the portions are enormous!  Today, I brought my appetite with me, so I ordered linguica, two eggs over easy, home style potatoes, and biscuits and gravy.  The meal kept me full until dinner!  Great food!

Photo:  We had quite a gathering of club member today, as there were twelve of us in attendance.  From left to right, Tony Godsey, Sean McCloud, Teri McCloud, David Rowland, David DeMario, Mary R., Sara Donnelly, Matt Donnelly, Sharlene Rench, Bev MacLeod, and Dan MacLeod.  Not shown in the photo was me, Eric Rench, as I took the photo.  Our server, Shannon, was quite busy providing great service to the twelve of us, and I didn't want to pester her to take a group photo.  To get the photo, I had to climb on a nearby booth, which could be considered the Mt. Everest of breakfast clubbing...

If you're a regular reader of the adventures of the Sacramento Breakfast Club, you've probably heard our rants and raves against chain restaurants, and how we prefer to patronize the local guy.  Well, with only three restaurants, Waffle Barn isn't exactly a national sensation, and since all three restaurants are located in the greater Sacramento area, they're "fair game" for our club.  We can't pass by a restaurant that serves and outstanding breakfast, and Waffle Barn excels in the breakfast category.  You just can't pass by The Waffle Barn if you're looking for an outstanding breakfast.

The Waffle Barn Restaurant, located on Fair Oaks Blvd, just south or Marconi Ave., is highly recommended by The Sacramento Breakfast Club.
