Description and review of brunch at the 33rd Street Bistro, a popular long-time East Sacramento restaurant.
A friend and I recently enjoyed brunch at the 33rd Street Bistro. Our original plan had been brunch at Bacon and Butter, but we did not want to wait an hour before being seated as it was already after noon. So we headed to 33rd Street Bistro – a popular breakfast and brunch spot in East Sacramento.
The 33rd Street Bistro parking lot was full, but we found parking on a nearby side street. We only had about a five minute wait, and we were offered the choice of dining inside or outside. We chose to sit outside on the patio as the sun was shining and it was a beautiful spring-like day.

The 33rd Street Bistro breakfast/brunch menu has a great selection of diverse choices, and several dishes appealed to me. I recalled really enjoying the Northwest Scramble (eggs, dill, wood roasted salmon, swiss and cheddar cheese, sour cream, tomatoes, green onions) ($14.95) previously, but I was up for trying something new.
We had both decided to order the advertised Bottomless Mimosas ($10) available on Saturday and Sunday 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., only to discover that they stop taking orders for Bottomless Mimosas (orange, pineapple, cranberry or pomegranate) at 1:00 p.m. In short, we were disappointed.
After that, we each ordered an orange mimosa, and my friend later ordered a Bistro Bloody Mary (absolut vodka, secret house-made bloody mary mix) ($9).
My friend ordered the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes (with honey butter and maple syrup) ($11.95), and I opted for the Breakfast Quesadilla (scrambled egg, chorizo sausage, black beans, cheddar and pepper jack cheese, vera cruz salsa, avocado cream) ($13.95).
The pancakes, which were light and fluffy with just the right amount of lemon flavor, were greatly enjoyed. I particularly enjoyed my breakfast quesadilla – the combination of eggs, spicy sausage, beans and cheese was a taste treat.
The portions were generous and both of us took leftovers home. That same evening I made a salad and enjoyed my leftover breakfast quesadilla for dinner.

(3/6/2020) The 33rd Street Bistro will be closing its doors on March 8, 2020, according to the Sacramento Bee. It was reported that the new owner of the building has declined to renew the restaurant lease.
This is a bitter blow to the Haines Brothers who have been planning a 25th Anniversary party for the restaurant later this year on November 14.
To sum up, the good news is that the Haines Brothers would like to open another 33rd Street Bistro in East Sacramento in time for said anniversary! Stay tuned.
