Sumirich, Minato

Some friends worked here and decided to show us the place. It’s Italian style, but I’m not sure it really is Italian (not that it particularly matters).

One great thing about eating in groups is you can all share a large number of dishes! Overall the food was ok. Seems like a college-goer type of meal.

I liked the sauce on the steak and potatoes, which was some sort of sweet and savory demi-glaze.

Los Gatos Cafe, Uptown

The Uptown location is much more convenient than the downtown location.  Better parking, faster seating, no frills service, and tastes similar to its better location.  If you don’t like waiting an hour, this is close enough IMHO.

 

Feels old-school on the outside.  On purpose, I think.20160207LosGatosCafeUptown1

DAT RASPBERRY COFFEE CAKE THO!  Dangerous.20160207LosGatosCafeUptown3

 

Normally I get something sweet, like the blueberry pancakes (AWESOME) or the french toast (a classic), or the cinnamon roll french toast when my sweet tooth takes over.  This time, however, I tried the Benedict Oscar.  20160207LosGatosCafeUptown4

 

Would definitely get it again!  Crab, fresh tarragon (a nice touch) scrambled eggs, English muffin, hollandaise sauce, asparagus.  Herbed potatoes on the side.20160207LosGatosCafeUptown5
