Life Is A Road Trip

The Amazing Adventures of a Zoobroker and a Sentiographer


Day 1: Breakfast at Voula's

After a quick stop at Matt's buddy's awesome studio, we headed to Voula's Offshore Cafe on the say so of his (the buddy's) lead assistant / weatherman ... the producer / marketeer at the studio gave us the heads up as to what exactly to order, and we followed her advice. Voula's is in a part of town that someone said was the University District, but it seemed more like folks working the the marine industries, no university in sight. This is just a perfect greasy spoon. Simple, hearty, and famous for a dish called "the Hobo", which is a mess of hash browns, eggs, sausage, peppers, mushrooms, onions, topped with cheddar cheese. It was awesome, but a couple more of those and there goes the boyish figure.


What was funny is that this place was featured on the Food Network's road trip show, "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives" ... out of all the breakfast places we could have ended up at.

Definitely worth the stop, and maybe another on our way out.


Most Definitely Road Trip Worthy: Eddie's Famous Cafe In Los Banos, CA

Eddie's should have been one of my first Road Trip Worthy posts.  This place serves the best breakfast in California, hands down.  The homemade sausage is very nearly the best sausage I've had anywhere in my life.  The service is impeccable.  This is a local's place, and city slickers and their Priuses (What's the plural of Prius, Priui? Priuae?) are sure to get a cockeyed-glance or two.  It gets pretty busy on weekends, so plan on a small torturous wait as you smell what Eddie has cooked up.
