Oak Leaf Cafe is located in the Granite Bay section of Roseville, CA and serves traditional American "comfort food" every day of the week in their upscale restaurant, and on their stunning patio.  Weekday mornings, the restaurant offers an amazing breakfast of "Steak and Eggs," which simply can't be beat!

As with all restaurant reviews I publish, 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, and I love to write-up, and publish my dining experiences.

Photo:  It's just past the 07:00 in the morning opening time on Wednesday, June 01, 2022, and I've arrived at Oak Leaf Cafe to enjoy a delicious breakfast outside on their patio.

Photo:  As you enter the restaurant, you'll be greeted by a friendly staff member and seated.  The small bar is immediately to the left, and the dining area is lined with booths against the windows.  As you pass through on your way to the main dining room, you'll notice the open kitchen, where you can watch the talented staff preparing your meal.

Photo:  The bar offers beer on tap, bottled beer, a modest choice of red and white wine and several varieties of mimosas.  If you look through the open door, you can see the chef working in the kitchen, as the restaurant features an open kitchen.

Photo:  The main dining room is spacious, upscale, comfortable and spotless clean.  The floor-to-ceiling windows look out on to the patio, which offers lots of seating.

Photo;  From the dining room you can look out on to the patio and enjoy the view of the lake and the wildlands. Oak Leaf's Cafe's  patio offers one of the best views in the area as you enjoy the fine "American style" cuisine the restaurant offers.

Photo:  The "Breakfast and Lunch" menu features benedicts, omelettes avocado toast, "House Specials," sides, all your favorites from the griddle, along with "Two Egg Combos."  The menu truly has something for every breakfast lover!

Photo:  The second page of the menu lists crepes, burgers, sandwiches, wraps, appetizers, entrees, salads, non-alcoholic beverages, and a small section just for the kids.  Alcoholic beverages, which include beer, wine and mimosas are on a separate menu.

Photo:  As you make your way to the main dining, you pass by the open kitchen, where you can watch the talented chef at work.

Photo:  The attractive patio offers a stunning view of the wildland behind the restaurant.  You can't see it in this photo but there is a small lake which adds to the beautiful view.  Oak Leaf Cafe's patio offers one of the best views in the greater Roseville area for your dining enjoyment.

Photo:  Meet my host Iraj, who brought my breakfast to my table on the patio with a smile.  I didn't ask, but he was kind enough to bring condiments, including ketchup, "Cholula" Mexican hot sauce, and "A1 Steak Sauce."  The breakfast was so delicious that I didn't even use any of the condiments, as the breakfast didn't need any "enhancement."

Photo:  I smile as I prepare to enjoy my delirious breakfast of "Steak and Eggs" outside, on the beautiful patio, with a gorgeous view of the lake, and the wildland in the background.

Photo:  From the "Daily Specials (Monday - Friday,)  which is only listed on the restaurant's web site, I went with "Steak and Eggs" for $9.99.  I requested my steak to be cooked medium, my eggs fried over easy and sourdough was my toast of choice.

My breakfast arrived about 20 minutes I placed my order with a simply stunning presentation, complete with sprigs of parsley and an orange slice for garnish.

The steak was the "star" of my breakfast, and I requested my steak to be cooked medium and it arrived, just as ordered, complete with attractive grill marks.  A knife was included to cut the steak, but it was mostly "window dressing," as the steak was juicy, tender  and easy to cut with my fork.  I didn't ask what cut of steak this was, but it looked to be New York, and it was simply delicious.  The steak was large, I'm guessing about 6 ounces, and made for an amazing centerpiece for this great weekday breakfast.

As the perfect side for the steak, my breakfast included a good size helping of amazing homestyle fried potatoes. The red potatoes were cut into chunks and perfectly fried on the griddle.  As a nice touch, grilled onion and bell pepper garnished the potatoes.  I loved it!  I realize there those who don't care for grilled pepper and onion on their fried potatoes, so check with your server.

My two eggs were fried over easy, exactly as ordered, and were simply perfect.  The mark of a breakfast chef with talent is how well they can deliver eggs fried over easy and the chef at Oak Leaf Cafe has talent.

The two pieces of sourdough toast were nothing special, but they were buttered and toasted perfectly.  A couple packages of jelly were included, but I simply left them, as when it comes to breakfast, I don't have a "sweet tooth." I used some of the toast to mop up the drippings from the meat, potatoes and eggs... yum!

At $9.99, this breakfast was an absolute bargain!  The portions were large, everything was prepared, as ordered, the breakfast was delicious, and it truly filled me up.  You can't go wrong with "Steak and Eggs" at Oak Leaf Cafe!

Photo:  My steak was juicy and tender and arrived with perfect grill marks.  Note the attractive presentation, complete with a parsley sprig and an orange slice.  The plate of toast was garnished with a parsley sprig too.

When you're in the mood for a delicious breakfast or lunch, especially if you love to dine with a view, check out Oak Leaf Cafe, located in the Granite Bay area of Roseville, CA.  You'll love the "American comfort food cuisine," the stunning view, and the friendly service.  You can't beat the "Steak and Eggs" at a bargain price offered Monday through Friday.  Truly fine dining!
