Katrina's Cafe This is the BEST place to go get some breakfast in Auburn. Dishes are always fresh and potatoes are NOT greasy like other places I've been to. Just make sure to go early and carry cash!
The Daily Egg Huge portions. Carnitas and tomatillo salsa in the green bfast burrito were spot on. Bloodies and bottomless mimosas!
Max's Cafe Many items.
