Calling all breakfast lovers!

Step back into the 1960s for that small-town feeling of good food and family at the longstanding Train Station Coffee Shop. For 35 years, they’ve been boundlessly building relationships in their inviting, blue-collar atmosphere. Walking in, I felt a surge of energy and comfort in the homey environment. With such a great menu, I was glad my love for avocados directed my attention to the Chicken Fajita Omelet. The huge portion included chicken, onions and green peppers in an egg blanket that was topped with sour cream, salsa and mouthwatering avocado slices—all served alongside crispy potatoes and toast. As for the hot, endless coffee? Well, let’s just say they really know how to satisfy addictions. It’s far from your average American diner in that, although the food is undeniably flavorsome, the décor (think train station-meets-record store) kept my eyes wandering with interest and a good laugh every so often. At Train Station, they’ve embraced the act of serving a hearty breakfast or lunch with pleasure—making every customer want to hop on as part of the family. All aboard! Train Station Coffee Shop, 4274 Mother Lode Drive, Shingle Springs, 530-677-6287.
