Wednesday morning's internet check in and caffeine were both found at Coffee Works in East Sacramento. With several people ahead of me in line, I had a little more time to do a first-timer's scan of the pastry case. The baked goods are made in-house by the Jump Start Cafe side of the biz. The spikey pain au lait looked interesting. Made with a milk and butter-enriched dough, the crumb was quite moist but not as rich as brioche, for example. Not sweetened, the soft roll was good for mopping up the foamy milk clinging to the inside of my cup.
Coffee-wise, I had a one-shot cappuccino, $2. No latte-art here, just a bull's eye blob. Normally, I add some sugar to a capp, but my first sip revealed an intense and sweet-tasting finish. This was quite a bit better than I expected to find.
And if it's wifi you need, there's no password required here. The speed's faster than most and several tables have wall outlets.
What are others' experiences here?
