Four Sisters Café, located the Roseville/Rocklin city limit line, opened in October 2012, and has quickly become a favorite breakfast and lunch restaurant of Roseville locals.  In less than four years, this restaurant has become extremely popular - 745 Yelp reviews as of this writing - and on weekends, lines out the door are normal, and lines even occur on weekdays.  I hadn't taken the opportunity to visit this fine restaurant since Christmas Eve, 2012, so I realized it was time to pay a visit, by myself, and enjoy breakfast on the lovely patio.

As with all of my reviews, I have no affiliation with the restaurant reviewed, and there is no monetary gain on my part, as I am simply a person who likes to eat, enjoys fine restaurants, and I love to write-up and publish my dining experiences.

Photo:  It's 0640 on Friday morning, June 24, 2016, only ten minutes after Four Sisters Café has opened their door for the day.  The restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch, as they close at three in the afternoon.  Four Sisters has become a very popular restaurant, so today's "plan" was to arrive shortly after opening time, to avoid the crowds. Lines out the front door are the norm on weekends, and are not unusual on weekdays, particularly Fridays.  I prefer to avoid crowds, and it's easier to chit-chat with the staff and take photos when the restaurant isn't busy, as I don't want to interfere with the operation of the restaurant, or the dining enjoyment of other patrons.

Photo:  As you walk in the door, you're greeted with a "Please Wait to be Seated" sign, and a "real" human greeter/seater will welcome you in a couple of seconds.  The weather on this early Friday morning was picture perfect for outside dining - about 68 degrees without any breeze - so I elected to sit on the patio, which I had all to myself.

Photo:  Friendly Alicia greets me, as I snap her photo.  Today, she was multi-tasking, as she was serving as greeter, seater, hostess and part-time cashier.  Alicia is actually standing in the kitchen, which extends to the right of the photo, separated by a wall, to the rear of the restaurant, at the counter.  The format of the restaurant is a little different than many restaurants, as your servers don't take your money.  At the end of your meal, they give you a check, and you pay for it at the cashier's station, shown in the photo, at the front of the restaurant.

Photo:  Four Sisters Café features mostly booths, with a small counter in the rear of the restaurant.  There are tables along the outside wall of the restaurant, next to the patio, where large groups, such as Sacramento Breakfast Club can sit together, and enjoy great company, and outstanding food.  On this early Friday morning, the restaurant is lightly seated, but I suspect an hour after this photo was taken, the restaurant would be full, and there could be a line out the door.  Four Sisters is a very popular restaurant, for good reason!

Photo:  The menu features classic, "Americana" favorites, and is quite extensive, for both breakfast and lunch. Here's a small portion of the breakfast menu that features breakfast classics.  After about 10-seconds of playing mind-games, I settled on the "Portuguese Sausage,"  which sounded like my kind of breakfast.  Note the choices in side dishes offered, including classic homestyle potatoes, rice, fresh fruit, cottage cheese, or apple sauce.  Oddly, no hashbrown potatoes are served, but on my part there were no worries, as I can enjoy hashbrowns at any roadside diner.  Today, I'm at Four Sisters Café!

Photo:  The counter is located at the extreme rear of the restaurant and features seats for eight.  It looks like a bar, feels like a bar, and has a high-definition television monitor like a bar, but it isn't a bar, as Four Sisters doesn't serve any alcoholic beverages.  If the weather wasn't as beautiful as it was today, I would have enjoyed my breakfast at the counter, as it's very comfortable and pleasant.  My pleasant server Sean, who happens to be a brother of the "sisters," stands in the entrance to the kitchen.

Photo:  Since the weather was absolutely fantastic, I chose to dine outside, on the comfortable, shaded patio.  Sean mentioned the restaurant plans to get new patio furniture in a few weeks, so I suppose I'll be in touch, and perhaps I'll swing by to check out one of the burgers, featured on the lunch portion of the menu.

Photo:  My friendly server, Sean, brings my breakfast to my delightful patio table.  I joked with him that he isn't a "sister," but he's a brother of the sisters, and part of the family.  My breakfast arrived only about 10 minutes after placing my order, which is fast service!  Sean was very pleasant, attentive, and a joy to have him as my server.

Photo:  It's about 0650 on this early Friday morning and I'm all smiles, as Sean takes my photo, as I prepare to enjoy my delicious breakfast.

Photo:  After looking at the menu, and debating about 10 seconds, I decided to enjoy the Portuguese Sausage breakfast.  I assume the sausage is linguica, as that's what it tasted like, but note the presentation of the sausage, and the breakfast.  This isn't your typical roadside diner!

There are many sides offered - potatoes, rice, cottage cheese, fresh fruit, applesauce - but for me, the choice was obvious:  Potatoes.  The potatoes are cooked homestyle, and seasoned with dill, and include onion and pepper.  As my de facto standard, I ordered my eggs over easy.  You have a choice of biscuit or toast - toast in all of the popular varieties - and I chose sourdough.  My only regret is that I didn't order a side of gravy...

My breakfast, in one word:  Delicious!  Everything was cooked perfectly, including the eggs over easy, which are my benchmark of a good breakfast.  The linguica, or Portuguese sausage, was sliced very differently from other restaurants, which - I think - added to the delicious taste, and certainly enhanced the presentation.  Such a wonderful breakfast!

No wonder why Four Sisters Café has built such a fine reputation among Roseville/Rocklin locals, and others who enjoy dining at a fine restaurant!  The food tastes like "mamma made it," it's delicious, the service is outstanding, the dining is comfortable, the portions are ample, and the prices are reasonable, considering the quality of food. After enjoying an outstanding breakfast experience, over three years since my last visit, I can understand when Four Sisters Café has become established as a premiere breakfast and lunch hang-out for Roseville locals.  Why did it take me so long to return?
