breakfast at dierke's parkside cafe


We finally got around to trying a Santa Rosa favorite for breakfast/brunch/lunch today, Dierke's Parkside Diner, arriving early and relaxing in the cafe's artistic-quirky-casual vibe as while perusing a menu with creative twists on breakfast fare...




The cafe is owned by chef Mark A. Dierkhising and is dedicated to serving up tasty and very fresh meals, often with a seasonal lilt. Jamison's "Country Benedict" with rich hollandaise, bacon, spinach, sun dried tomatoes, and mushrooms over a toasted baguette served with a lovely crisp outside/melting inside hash browns was very yum...


Soothing pancakes and sausage for me, with maple syrup and butter...


It was a good start to the day, one that set us up well for a few hours of browsing antiques shops. Some colorful flowers in bloom, seen on our outing:




Enjoy the rest of the weekend, friends!

A delightful breakfast will set you up for a wonderful day. Did you know the pink lilies are "Naked Lady Lilies?" We used to giggle every time they came in bloom in my grandmother's garden. "I see Naked Ladies!" Hope you have a great week Ms. Jenn!
