Featured: Inside Sacramento – R Street
Seasonal menus with fresh, locally sourced ingredients and creative bar concepts unique to each Café Bernardo location make these eateries neighborhood favorites from Midtown to the R Street Corridor to Downtown. A cornerstone of Sacramento’s legendary Paragary Restaurant Group, Café Bernardo combines an informal, European-style café environment with the quality and attention to detail that have been Randy and Stacy Paragary’s standard for decades. Certain favorites endure year round, such as the mushroom, Jarlsberg cheese and parsley salad and Thai noodle salad, which brims with chicken, carrots, cucumbers, scallions and thin noodles in a spicy peanut dressing. Sandwiches are globally inspired and include banh mi, Cubano and mushroom melt. The burgers and pizzettas rate among the best in town. At this Sacramento restaurant lines form for weekend breakfast, where fans savor the Bernardo Breakfast Sandwich (two farm eggs, bacon, Romesco, grilled onion and white cheddar with herbed potatoes), amaretto brioche French toast and whole-grain blueberry pancakes.
