I don't know Sacramento very well, just that it seems very BIG when driving through on 5/80.
We will be travelling to Citrus Heights in early May to visit a young relative and would like to find a healthy but chowish cafe or spot within 15 or 20 minutes to take her for lunch. She eats chicken and fish but not much red meat. Loves her veggies, and lots of conversation.
Can Sacto area Hounds give us some reccomendations? Bonus points for nice location/ambiance. We see so little of her, we'd like it to be special. Doesn't have to be formal, but not too divey.
