Sushi is always on point. Highly recommend the Firecracker appetizer. We were a large group, they easily accommodated us. Even helped out with the cake service. Blue Nami never disappoints!

Mikuni Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar

Reviewed By Steve R - Roseville, California

You know how you find a great place and always think there must be something better, so you keep looking only to find...there's not.

It's the best sushi in town at all 5 or 6 locations. The fish is always fresh and great quality with lots of unique stuff.

Many of the rolls are droll inducing and even just the seaweed salad is delicious.

One of my favorites is the Mel Roll, light rice soy wrapper. It doesn't have a lot of sauce or fillers. It's just packed with salmon, 2 tunas and shrimp. a taste of the sea and really, really good. add wasabi and it turned into a craving food for me.

Sutter Street Steakhouse

This restaurant is owned by the same people as the 5th Street Steakhouse in Chico. For reviews visit: www.yelp.com/biz/5th-street-steakhouse-chico

Reviewed By Dennismc2015 - Seattle, Washington

This is a place you will want to make reservations in advance. Very popular and overheard the Hostess telling people "it will be 1 1/2 hrs before we can seat you" - and this was on a Thursday at 6 pm.

Steaks are dry aged a minimum of 20 days and are cooked to perfection. Several nightly specials are offered in addition to the regular menu. Potato sides that are offered are baked, garlic mashed, and cheddar mashed. All are very tasty.

They also offer several "seafood" dishes - lobster, shrimp, oysters, and fish.

The wait staff was very attentive and made sure you were happy with your meal.

Donut Spot

Reviewed By NorCal-traveler08 - Orangevale, California

We have been coming to Donut Spot for years. The owners are really sweet people and the donuts are large, light and fluffy. Love the maple bars, old fashion and their cake donuts are wonderful. Out kids live out of state and this is one of the first places they want to come when they are in town. We always take them to go, but they do have tables inside and outside if you want to eat there. Thanks for doing a great job.

LA Placita

Reviewed By Joseph P

On a busy Friday lunch about 90% of the customers were non-Hispanic, including me. So yes, the food was more to American tastes, but service was GREAT and friendly even though super busy... And everything very clean. We had to try a couple timez before we could get a salsa that was hot enough. Not great Mexican... And not as authentic as some, but good flavor and quality.

Karen's Bakery

Reviewed By kerithp2017 - Lotus, United States

Best coffee in town. I don't eat a lot of sweets, but if I do...it's Karen's. Great selection. Special occasion cakes - all amazing! And breakfast and lunch to die for. Every dish is my new fav! Hard to choose. I love the poblano chicken sandwich. Their deli case salad trio changes by season. Karen's is really my favorite spot in Folsom.
