On the way from San Francisco to Tahoe, I popped in to the Bella Bru Cafe in El Dorado Hills, California. I was just looking for a quick, simple breakfast and was really excited when I found that they had more than just bagels and muffins. The fact that they use natural and local ingredients was an added bonus. I ordered their Huevos Rancheros (pictured above), which came complete with eggs, corn tortillas, black beans (they’re hiding under the tortillas in this photo), salsa, avocado, and potatoes. It was cooked to perfection (the eggs weren’t at all runny, but they were also not overcooked or chewy), and the service was incredibly fast. I also ordered a white tea and an apricot scone for the road (pictured below), both of which were delicious as well. I actually forgot about the scone for a day or two, and when I got around to eating it, it was still fresh and flavorful. This was, by far, the best surprise-meal of the trip!
