Bob Ringwald, piano; Darrell Fernandez, bass.

This week's suggestion is the High Hand Cafe Rotisserie Chicken, and their Romaine Salad.  Then, top off dinner with a delicious home made (made on the premises) cobbler with a generous scoop of ice-cream.  Then REALLY top it off with the High Hand's special Cafe Lotte.  

The High Hand Cafe is located at: 
3790 Taylor Road Loomis, CA

>From Sacramento, go east on I-80.  Pull off at Sierra College Blvd. and go left across the freeway.  

Turn right on Taylor Road and the High Hand Cafe and Nursery is a mile or so on your left.  

Dress is casual -- Kid friendly.

Be sure to say hi to the owner Scott Paris, and the manager Jan.  

Check out their web site.

Well worth the trip to Loomis from just about anywhere in the Sacramento 

High Hand Cafe proudly showcases products sourced from many of Placer 
 County's small farms. Situated on a historic fruit-packing corridor in Loomis, the cafe is snuggled
 up against the gorgeous High Hand Nursery in an all-glass atrium filled with 
 potted magnolia trees and vibrant tulips. Sun-flooded and airy, the High Hand Cafe serves
wholesome, earnest food devoid of fanciful garnishes or esoteric 
 ingredients. This is simple, belly-pleasing fare, from the fresh albacore tuna melt and 
 spinach salad with local Asian pears and toasted hazelnuts) to the wood-fired oven pizzas 
(try the chicken with fresh basil pesto pizza) and the rotisserie pork loin with 
 organic chard and rosemary mashed potatoes.)

High Hand gets packed quickly-L Loomis residents have
embraced this cafe with fervor, so be sure to make reservations, 
916/ 652-2064.

Do make time before or after your meal to stroll through the High Hand 
 nursery, surely the most fetching and strikingly designed nursery in Placer County. Wind 
 chimes tinkle in the breeze, a tabby nursery cat licks his paws as he curiously observes 
 the visitors.  tall trees provide delicious shade on hot days, and there's even a koi pond 
 with darting, jewel-like fish that will fascinate your kids.
