I'm surprised people even read my crazy spazzing posts about KPop boy bands hahahaaaaa
Thanks for reading regardless of how weird I am, everyone! ^o^ ♥♥♥
I went to this super cute French café awhile ago and loooved it! (Good) French food is nearly nonexistent where I live unless you're willing to pay an arm and a leg for it in SF. Café Rolle is located in Sacramento, CA (state capital woot! but not really, there's nothing there -_-) and kinda in the middle of nowhere. It's pretty difficult to find, but I found it with my trusty navigator!
The decor is adorable and very much like a tiny french cafe with the red checkered table cloths. I love all the pictures on the wall.
Seating is very limited and they're opened for a very short period of time. I've been wanting to try this place for dinner but they only open for about 2 hrs for dinner hahaha. Aaand they close for dinner on Saturday nights...wth? Guess the French are really not keen on working too much lol! This place is so popular and fills up soooo fast, especially on weekends. I went on a weekday right when it opened so it was still pretty empty. By the time we left, it was around 12pm and was getting packkked.
For lunch, they only sell sandwiches and salads. They're sandwiches are amazing!! The bread is so crispy!!
This time I ordered the Stacy's Favorite which is roast beef with field greens, brie, caramelized onions and, garlic aioli...I think. It was quite some time ago so I can't remember exactly. Clearly, I'm not a food blogger =.=
It's a hot sandwich so the brie was melted and gooey and oh-my-god-so-freakin-deelicious. The sandwich also comes with a side of mixed greens and this delicious mustard dressing. SO GOOD!!! XD
The sandwich is pretty big and I could only finish half. It is decently priced, I think my sandwich was $8-$9. I took the rest home and ate it for a snack later that day. Still reallyyyyy good! The bread stays crisp.
Okaaay fine, I'll admit that I didn't finish the sandwich on purpose because I wanted dessert hahahaha
Café Rolle has the most amazing crème brûlée!! They have a special variation everyday and on the day that I went, it was blackberry crème brûlée. I looove fruit, especially in my dessert, so I pretty much freaking did a dance when I saw this on the menu >.<
But...to be honest...this was only okaaay. I mean it was really really good, but I liked the original crème brûlée I ordered the first time I ate here. The tart blackberries just didn't really go well with the creamy custardy crème brûlée. So if you go, I highly recommend the original crème brûlée!! ^_^
It's a shame that Café Rolle is so far from where I live. It is about 90 minutes from SF. I used to go to school near Sacramento so it was easier to make a trip there, but now I've moved far awayyyy, back to civilization HAHA
This place was even featured on Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives!!
When I went here for the first time, I kept getting a feeling that I'd been there before. Then I realized I saw it on this show. LOL I'm addicted to Food Network!
If you're ever in the area, check this place out!!
Now...I have to go prep for a 2hr interview...It's pretty much the most important interview of my life, so...no pressure >.< Wish me luck errrbody!
