There is nothing like a great breakfast to get your day started the right way! Of course, there's no better way to enjoy your great breakfast than dining at a super friendly restaurant, and when "super friendly" comes to mind, I think of Waffle Farm, located in Lincoln, CA.
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: Waffle Farm is located in a small strip mall on the north side of Lincoln, CA, and features plenty of free, safe parking. It's a little past 8 in the morning on Friday, November 27, 2020, and I've arrived at Waffle Farm to enjoy one of their wonderful breakfasts.
Photo: As you enter the restaurant, a friendly staff member will meet you, and seat you. You'll notice the "country " theme decor and the breakfast counter, with the kitchen behind the counter. In previous days the counter would have been a very popular place to enjoy your breakfast, but with the current state restrictions, thanks to the COVID-19 virus, all dining at the counter, along with all indoor dining is not happening.
I was greeted by friendly Judy, who happens to be the owner of the restaurant.
Photo: The dining room is absolutely GIGANTIC and is decorated with a "country" theme, just like the counter. The dining room is light, airy and is lighted by natural lighting, thanks to the large windows that look outside to the patio.
On this Friday morning, the dining room is empty, as Placer County has been ordered by the state to cease indoor dining, so all dining is outside, on the cheerful patio.
Photo: The first page of the menu features lunch selections, including hamburgers, sandwiches, along with soups and salads. It's diner fare, which is among my favorite food. Waffle Farm is open for breakfast and lunch, and anything on the menu is available any time the restaurant is open.
Photo: The breafast section of the menu has all of your breakfast bases covered, and should bring a smile to all breakfast lovers.
Photo: My friendly hostess, Terri, pours my beer for me. Yes, I know it's Friday morning, and it's chilly outside, but on this morning-after-Thanksgiving, a beer sounded like a great idea to enjoy along with my breakfast.
Photo: Waffle Farm features a large, comfortable patio for outdoor dining enjoyment. As per state mandate, the patio is surrounded by a small fence, so beer and wine can be enjoyed on the patio. Thanks to the COVID-19 virus, the state has mandated that restaurant in Placer County only allow outdoor dining. For me, that is not a problem, as unless the weather is rainy or excessively foggy, I prefer to dine outdoors, as I think it makes my food taste better.
Photo: Meet Terri, my super friendly hostess, who brings my delicious breakfast to me with a smile behind the mandatory mask. Waffle Farm's menu advertises fast service, and they're not kidding, as my delicious breakfast arrived about 10 minutes after I placed my order. That's FAST!!
Photo: Thanks, Teri, for snapping my photo, as I get ready to enjoy my delicious breakfast. I'm sitting the sun on the patio and bundled up, as the outside temperature was only 40 degrees.
Photo: From the "Farm Favorites" section of the breakfast menu, I ordered "Polish Sausage" as the "star" of my breakfast. The menu states, "All Farm Favorites are served with two eggs, country potatoes or hashbrowns, and biscuit and gravy or toast and jelly." Toast and jelly or biscuit and gravy? ...that's really easy for me to decide!
My large Polish sausage was split in half, and grilled to perfection The sausage was split just enough so it held together, yet when cut into bite-size pieces, it was easy to split apart, which was a nice tough. The sausage was on the large size - Waffle Farm does not "skimp" on portions - and was juicy and tender. The serrated knife was really just for decoration, as the sausage was super juicy and pork tender.
It's always difficult to choose between hash brown or country potatoes, but for me, the year 2020 seems to be the "year of the hashbrowns" so I went with hash brown potatoes. My potatoes were cooked just the way good hashbrowns should arrive, fried perfectly crispy golden brown on the outside, and chewy tender inside. I noted these amazing hashbrowns weren't salty or greasy, and had the perfect taste. You could categorize me as a lover of fine hash brown potatoes! My order of eggs over easy arrived exactly as I ordered them - fried over easy - perfectly fried over easy, which is the mark of a breakfast chef who cooks with talent.
The biscuit was light and fluffy, and covered with delicious, creamy sausage gravy. Such a great side! I gobbled down the biscuit and scooped the remaining gravy on my hash brown potatoes for an added taste sensation.
Delicious food, served by some of the friendliest staff in Lincoln, on a sunny patio, with a relaxing view of the west Lincoln landscape. Sound good? That's Waffle Farm, located on Twelve Bridges Drive, in Lincoln, CA for your breakfast and lunch dining pleasure.
