I visit my elderly parents every other weekend in the Sacramento area. Though I grew up in the delta there and worked for a time in Sacto, I know next to nothing about the restaurant scene. I often find myself shopping and running errands with my mother in the Elk Grove/Laguna area. Try as I might I can't find a restaurant there that's a reasonably tasting non-chain one. We usually end up at Mimi's on Laguna. Please, if anyone knows of a good independent place that serves tasty food with relatively fresh ingredients,m I would be ever so delighted to know about it. This past weekend we found ourselves at Arden Fair and did not want to eat at the pretentious looking California Cafe. We drove around the area for a bit and found nothing that looked intriguing. We ended up at the Tower Cafe, a place I am familiar with and enjoy. But there's got to be some hidden gems in the south area...Broadway too. Any insider info from you local Solons (that dates me!)? Thanks in advance.
