After a weekend full of music at Aftershock, GoldenSky or another festival, you might be left wondering, how could I ever recover? Luckily, there are plenty of foodie havens here in Sacramento that might do just the trick. Here are seven places to refuel and recover after rocking the night away (maybe just a little bit too hard).


Tower Cafe

Tower Café

This Sacramento landmark offers an award-winning brunch with both sweet and savory options. If you're looking for a bit of a sugary pick-me-up the morning after the artist you've been waiting to see for six months blows your mind, the Tower Café's Famous French Toast is the perfect option. If you’re hoping for something a bit more substantial to cure your hangover, the eatery offers several unique egg dishes.

Burgers and Brew

After a long night of screaming lyrics at the top of your lungs, there’s nothing a little Burgers and Brew can’t fix. Much like a drunken night out, their burgers may be a hot mess with all the ingredients stacked on them, but they sure will hit the spot. If you’re getting an earlier start to your day, try their breakfast fries topped with Hickory smoked bacon, over easy egg and melted cheddar cheese.
