You can find me most any Friday morning at 320 Orange Dr in Vacaville, sharing great breakfast foods with my daughter, Rojana and any other family members who are available. Usually it is just the two of us and my four year old great- granddaughter. It is a blast when little Kaylee is with us-never know what she is going to do or say, always a treat to spend time with them.

And then you add the wonderful service and food--it is a yummy , wow of a way to spend the morning. And the wait-persons never make you feel rushed!

I love Oatmeal and the Black Oak knows how to serve it--brown sugar, raisins, peanut butter (not sure what that is for, never had it in oatmeal before but it tastes good on my English Muffin.

Omelets, eggs any way you wish, pancakes, waffles-you name it, they serve it-just right!

As you walk in the door, you are surrounded by the many items offered in the gift shop, from stuffed animals, dolls, wall decore and beautifully decorated coffee mugs-the travel variety!

When a birthday comes along in the family we try to get as many local family to show up as possible: sometimes our booth is full, other times just Rojana and me!

Now, I don't mean to infer that breakfast is the only food they serve-no way! They also cook great lunches, I just don't hang around long enough after breakfast to eat lunch!

The restaurnant is located near the Outlet Mall so very easy to find. Just off Hwy 80 where Hwy 505 connects to head north.

Let me know below what you think of this place-the comment section is waiting for your voice to share your experience.

Daughter Vickie and her fellow dropped in to dine with us on her birthday.  We had a booth full of family together that day!

      oh Christie, I didn't know things were that hard. maybe that is why I like you so Brice is also that child. so unpaphy and explosive. tantrums would go on for hours. i remember crying myself to sleep, knowing I had to get up and do it all over. i dreaded sending him anywhere. it is getting better, but i think both of us are still healing. we actually decided not to have a third because of all the struggles with him. i just couldn't risk having another child like him (though I do love him so, and feel particularly bonded with him maybe b/c of all the struggles). i used to look at other women and yearn for the peace they seemed to have with their children. but maybe those temperments produce greatness? i think so.I was looking at my bookshelf the other day: your explosive child; the defiant child; the strong-willed child (worthless imho); the spirited child. it's nice to know you're not alone that's what I got from those books. how do people raise kids like ours without God and good husbands?

      I do ! And I love the company on Friday mornings! My daughter has Fridays off work and usually has the little granddaughter for the day so I get to enjoy them both for one -two hours. It is so important to "grab" all the time possible with family-times goes by so quickly. Thanks for commenting, have a great day.
