Brunch with Daffodils

The countdown is on to Earth Hour.

This green campaign wants people around the world to vote for Earth at 8:30 PM, local time.

For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming. – from

We’ll see how that works out.

Brunch at the Tower Cafe
Back in Sacramento, I celebrated the first weekend of Spring at the Tower Cafe. This delightful garden foodie spot has its own connection to green-friendly traditions. In 1990, it opened for business on Earth Day, April 22.

The patio dining area is lovely on any sunny day. The leafy trees block out the bustle and noise of traffic on Broadway. The branches let in just the right amount of sunshine to warm up diners. The lush plants, the eclectic chairs & tables plus the heady aroma of hot entrees all adds up to a foodie oasis.

I ordered the Crab Cake Benedict. I enjoyed the fresh bites of crab and rock shrimp over focaccia bread. Tower Cafe’s thick bernaise sauce paired nicely over the poached eggs.

My hubby liked his Southwestern Salmon Omelet. Tower Cafe whips up some tasty meals with eggs! The Pacific salmon and melted asiago and jack cheese made this omelet a hearty one.

Last weekend, we waited 30 minutes for a table. We spent the waiting time browsing new titles at Broadway Comics and Cards. Other parties went across the street for a cup of Starbucks.

In any event, I thought it was the worth the wait. It was a yummy brunch experience on Tower Cafe’s patio.
