Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

By Torey Van Oot and Jon Ortiz

Had your fill of the run-of-the-mill lunch spots and food trucks surrounding the Capitol?

While there's no shortage of coffee and lunch locales in the area, we know some downtown denizens have yet to sample the many dining options shrouded behind the walls of state buildings.

So we've decided to start eating our way through the more than a dozen state-operated cafes and cafeterias in Sacramento to give our readers the full scoop on the highs and lows of these haunts.

First, we want your input on where we should start and what dishes we should be sure not to miss (or maybe ones we should avoid). Send your suggestions to If you make a good enough case for your favorite joint, we might even invite you to join for an upcoming lunch.

Happy eating!
