Food Review: Sutter Street Grill


All french toast is not created equal. In the vast world of breakfast cafes, and all around restaurants, finding a unique breakfast dish is a tough task.

Sutter Street Grill, located on, wait for it … Sutter Street, is a classic, old, family owned breakfast and lunch grill.

On the old Folsom strip, Sutter Street Grill has been around for decades, keeping true to its homemade, high quality food.

While they did have a massive wait staff with all the servers and busboys rushing around everywhere, they seem unorganized and frantic, taking away a little bit from the relaxing breakfast atmosphere.

It is a pay at the front style cafe with a waiting stand outside and the cash register in the bar seating area, which may be confusing for first-time customers.

I ordered a sausage patty, a biscuit, hashbrowns, and eggs. All together it was about $10, which was not too expensive considering the amount of food I got.

The food came out surprisingly quickly, although we waited 20 minutes for a table. With 4 people, seating was tough to get a spot with the restaurant being so popular, especially on weekends.

The first thing I noticed was that the sausage patty was huge. The sausage was like a homemade hamburger patty sized sausage, easily the best and most flavorful I’ve ever had.

The biscuit, the size of a human baby’s head, was a thick, Southern style biscuit served with jelly and butter. The sausage and biscuit together was a great combo.

The scrambled eggs were unoriginal yet yummy. Yet on the real, how creative can one really be with scrambled eggs?

The hashbrowns were crispy on the outside, and piping hot and fresh as well.

Sutter Street Grill has original, old pictures of local sports teams, and classic decorations that have been the same for years. With the inside and outside of the restaurant remaining more plain, customers can focus more on the high-quality food.
