This place is a best kept secret. I've been biding my time to try it ever since I noticed it in San Rafael. The Depot Garden Cafe is on B Street close to Saigon Village.
We decided that it would be cooler to enjoy their back deck. It is pleasant enough, but a little run down. It looks like improvements are under construction.
Dad ordered the eggs and pancakes special. There were two huge pancakes on that plate and Dad loved every bite!
I tried the Vegetarian Breakfast Burrito. The vegetables were gently folded into the egg (I can't remember all the veggies at the moment). The burrito was great, but I'm not a fan of that type of home fries. The potato was cut in thin pieces like potato chips, then fried. There were crispy potato-chip like pieces, and also more soft and tender pieces as contrast. However, it all just had a little too much oil for my taste. The staff was very friendly and prompt. I enjoyed the warm atmosphere that they created.
