Original gangster rworange is back in town after a stint in Guatemala, and now appends photos to her usual exhaustive reports of far-flung eateries.

High marks go to Vallejo’s Java Jax, where the breakfast sandwich, Chicago hot dog, coffee, and rye toast all rate “very, very good” in her scheme.

Ganache Cupcakery in Vallejo earns a stone-cold F-minus for service issues, while rworange loved the clean, hospitable Las Montanas, a family-owned market in Concord with free tastings and excellent produce specials.

Discuss: Vallejo: Java Jax – House-roasted coffee, sandwiches, Chicago-style hot dogs and live music
Vallejo: Ganache Cupcakery and Catering – Chicken and waffle cupcakes, but service has no panache at Ganache (F-)
San Pablo: Las Montanas: One of the best Bay Area Mexican supermarkets with Mexican Fanta and sanitized street food (in a good way)
