“The trees of Sacramento form a canopy over most streets, and the buildings aren’t that small but you feel like you’re in a cozy cubby of a city,” says Michael Bosetti, educator director at Insight Roasters, who has been living in Sacramento since college. He grew up in San Francisco, and Sacramento reminds him of it—with its music, art, food, craft coffee, and beer.

But, thankfully, it’s quieter, calmer, and less expensive—he wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. If you find yourself in the Californian capital, swing into Insight, and let Bosetti be your guide to grilled cheese eggs Benedict, the city’s best barcade, and everything else you should eat and drink while you're there.

True, but Sacramento has many of it own home grown culinary types born and bred in Sacramento.

I notice Bon Appetit left out Temple Coffee and many other top choices in the central city.

Nah. Most creative types come from being priced out of the bay. Sac is a norm core status quo town.

Before social media it would take a good six months for cutting edge coastal trends to catch on in Sac.

You are so funny. Sacramento has always had a healthy creative class. You know one of the Chief Justices of the US Supreme Court was born and raised Sacramentan. I could go on an on about Sacramento's contributions. Like I've said over and over again, Sacramento is pretty humble place we don't brag or necessarily even say we are from Sacramento.

You probably are buying into old stereotypes that get perpetuated down in LA and SF. Perhaps, last generation and as early as 10 years ago much of Sac's creative class migrated to SF or LA or NY, many still do. Many of our most educated and/or most talented move on to the nations creative/think tank larger cities, but that has become less so in the last 10 years.

Regarding Sac's current restaurant/wine/beer leaders, most are native Sacramentans or long-term residences. Creating good interesting comfort food, fine cuisine, and a culture of food/wine/beer/coffee, etc is not rocket science; we don't need people from LA or SF to create this culture; we've created it on our own. Still yet, Sacramento is still probably sending more talented folks down to SF and LA than they are sending us.

We are well aware that SOME folks like you will never believe nor accept Sacramento's past, current, and recent change to notierity; we don't care. This is not personal, you simply represent those that believe in old stereotypes, and continue to perpetual them.
