My Mom had a wonderful birthday this past weekend. On Saturday we went out to breakfast at this amazing breakfast joint- Sandy's
This place was pure bliss; from the decor, to the service to the owner being a total sweetheart.. don't even get me started on the food. I had the best veggie omelet
with extra avocado.
Here's the back story.. So my Dad will order the same exact breakfast meal anywhere we go, this is his way to measure the quality and taste of the food. He says if I order the same meal, I have something to compare it to. Well, I saw the sparkle in his eye after he took his first bite.. needless to say we will be returning.

We also went out for dinner on Sunday to Paesanos in downtown San Jose. A classic Italian joint located in the Little Italy neighborhood.
|halibut piccata, YUM!!|
The accordion player who greets you when you first walk in, the art and vibe of the restaurant all add to its authenticity. The menu is full of classic Italian fare- from veal, chicken and lamb chops to multiple pasta entrees and if you re lucky to go on a night when they offer their fresh cheese appetizer.. trust me you'll be in heaven. Everything is made fresh to order, so don't come here and expect to get out in under an hour.
A charming little joint I highly recommend to anyone looking to escape reality
for just a few hours.
