Great breakfast spot. The menu is full of interesting items. Lunches and dinners have a good reputation. Tom had the bacon pancakes and the rest of the no eating was needed. I had the eggs benedict. The eggs were really pouched and the muffin was homemade. Highly recommend. It is located downtown. Sitting upstairs by the window gives you a birdseye view of the street happenings.

The casino offers several dining choices. The Waterfall Buffet is very good, with a wide variety. There is a steak house, an Asian restaurant and a burger joint. Just remember smoking is allowed in the casino and you have to walk through it to get to the restaurants downstairs. Also remember what floor you park your car, they all look the same.

South County Wineries are too numerous to mention. It is a great to explore place. From Sierra Vista Winery in Pleasant Valley to the Fitzpatrick Winery in the Fairplay you are sure to find a wine or just a fill of scenery that will complete your day. Great mountain vistas and majestic pine trees waits for you.

The Farmers Markets in Placerville popup at two locations in town. The Saturday Market is located on Placerville Dr next to the movie theater and features a variety of fresh produce, local crafts, and other local vendors. The Wednesday Market at the Bell Tower is fresh produce and is smaller market due to its location.
