Along one side of the long and narrow room extends a Formica-topped lunch counter. Behind the counter, the wall is decorated with houseplants, various knick-knacks and original paintings. Stools line the counter or you can find seating at leather upholstered booths lining the other wall. The menu is basic. The breakfast menu at Lucky Cafe offers bacon and eggs (any style) and lunch features burgers and Philly cheese-steak sandwiches. For the vegetarian, the Veggie Melt is a mountain of fresh produce piled high on sourdough bread.
Went to Lucky's on a thursday morning for breakfast.
Food is basic Americana cuisine. No
complaints as to the food, it was delicious though unexceptional. Better than Denny's, *though you'd have to try to be worse than that*. The coffee is alright. It's more expensive than Denny's, I think I paid $8 for a stack of pancakes, hashbrowns, sausage links and toast. That's not an outrageous price for a good filling breakfast however, I would pay that anywhere else for food of the similar caliber.
The overall ambiance of the cafe is pretty intimate. It's not large, you can see the face of every patron from your seat at the bar. It feels a little like a throw back to a previous decade, which is quaint. I understand that during peak hours the cafe gets Packed, so I would avoid weekend mornings esp, unless you're prepaired to get there at 7 when they open, and can stand to eat with other folks at both elbows.
Service was good when I came, there were 2 waitresses on duty for a handful of customers, so my food was prompt and my coffee cup had plenty of personal attention. I expect that were I to go back on a busier day I wouldn't have an identical experience, though from talking to the waitress it sounds like they never have a problem keeping things under control. (Mine was pretty cute too; I was glad she wasn't so busy she couldn't stop and chat. That's a plus)
I definitely will go back again this weekend.

and trim. The decor dates back to Sacramento of the 1940s, with unique photos including skyline panoramas and aerial ...
