On a visit to Sacramento, CA I managed to do more then just lobby for better bills, but also found time to check out the best spots in the small city and California State capitol...Sacramento's no Los Angeles or New York, but certainly has some sweet stops worth trying...


Every girl needs her morning cappuccino and macaroon, right? Well this girl does; no need for an average Starbucks, not when a cute little caffe exists right on K street...parisian charm delivered, check!

The most glamorous restaurant in town, hands down, is Ella...right in the center of downtown Sacramento, the space looks fresh, with a soft, pristine white, modern decor...

I came here only for a drink, an amazing pink champagne cocktail the cute bartender fixed me, but really wished I had stayed for dinner...the flowers were fresh and the food smelled so good! Must go back!

What a chic private dining area (below), I love how the dim lighting illuminates the gold hardware print on the walls! If I lived in Sacramento I would certainly have my birthday dinner here! So pretty!

The small city of Sacramento has only one boutique hotel, and trust me, it suits the bill! This historic building is charming, with an east coast private club kind of vibe but updated enough not too feel too stuffy!

Love the gold elevator doors, it's almost like being in very high end train station, ha!

The red concierge booth is quite enticing, especially with the dim lighting and matching velvet chairs...

What a perfectly tufted velvet chair with nailhead trim! So classic and comfortable, makes me want to pick up a newspaper and smoke a cigar...or rather blog with a cappuccino, hehe...

Ah what a sweet bed! Even though I stayed down the street at the Sheridan Grand, I will certainly come back when I have a real job! The gold trim of the nightstand is right on, especially with the mustard yellow stripes and bedding, loving the political cartoon artwork as well, 






Gotta love our little California capitol,
