We've been huge fans of the Oak Cafe since our first visit in 2012 as #13 on my list of 40 Things. The Oak Cafe is the culinary student-run fine dining restaurant at American River College in Sacramento. The food is amazing and ridiculously inexpensive ($15 for a 5-star, 3-course meal with drink) and every time we've gone we've been impressed. They are only open for lunch on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays during certain weeks of the semester, so between the limited reservations, Trevor's school schedule and the distance from home, we only manage to go there once a semester.
I wanted to scrap this place that has become very special to us, so I combined photos from three of our visits on this page. I love how it turned out.
Last week, the Oak Cafe opened in their beautiful, brand-new, long-awaited facility. We went on opening day and loved it. If you're anywhere within driving distance of Sacramento, I highly recommend the Oak Cafe!
