This 4th of July, Rich and I drove up to join our kids and some friends who were on a camping trip in San Simeon (we hotel'ed it this time - Rich got back from Juniors camp on Saturday afternoon). We decided to stop in Carpinteria for breakfast at the Worker Bee Cafe, and it was delightful. Here are two pics of what I could see from my seat at the counter:
It's cluttered but immaculate!
We sat down and at the same time as the coffee was offered, I wasted no time in ordering up one of their amazing cinnamon rolls. They get them from a bakery in Ventura called "Siblings" and they are to die for. They come warm with - get this - a side of whipped butter. Oh mama. Cinnamon rolls are SO my weakness and this one didn't disappoint. Just look at it:I really should have stopped after the cinnamon roll and coffee, but instead I moved on to perfectly cooked over-easy eggs and hashed browns, and a fresh buttermilk biscuit. It was all so delicious and after eating about half of it I was stuffed. After that, I vowed not to eat the rest of the day! If you ever find yourself in the area, you really should stop in and have breakfast at the Worker Bee. It such a great experience, I would drive to Carpinteria just for this.
Oscar's wonderful homemade biscuits.
