Quiche with crunch

Veggie quiche, Coffee Works

Besides the nutty aroma of fresh coffee beans roasting in-house, Coffee Works, a small cafe in East Sac, also offers an array of tasty pastries, hearty breakfast burritos and large empanadas to accompany its extensive drink menu. My go-to morning indulgence is its veggie quiche ($3.85). Made from scratch daily, each creamy bite is layered with thinly sliced zucchini, onions, mushrooms and topped with a blanket of Parmesan that’s baked until golden brown and crunchy. Ask for some Valentina hot sauce on the side and grab a window seat to enjoy the busy traffic whizzing by. 3418 Folsom Boulevard, coffeeworks.com.
