Soleil Mexican American Cuisine newly opened on Stockton Boulevard, relocated from downtown Sacramento where as Cafe Soleil they reigned for 20 years in Cesar Chavez Park. Cafe Soleil served amazing breakfasts and lunches — an enormous menu all prepared from scratch and served to thousands over the years. Surprising to learn they had closed. Still more surprising that they have relocated across from UC Davis Med Center. This one-time orange freeze stand (locally known as Merlino's) and most recently a chicken cafe is a landmark on Stockton Boulevard. Thrilled to see the "orange"open again and under the culinary skills of Soleil, the street tacos, homemade chips and salsa are divine.
There is only outdoor seating — a big plus with so many sunny Sacramento days. Don't let rain (when that happens) keep you away -- they easily do takeout. The menu includes homemade soups, sandwiches, breakfast burritos, tacos, tortas and more. Soleil opened in mid-November 2015. Open Monday-Friday for breakfast and lunch, the new menu is smaller but expanding; still incredibly delicious. Stop by, meet and greet the new neighbors. With few places to eat within walking distance of the hospital, Soleil is certain to have many new friends.
Happy to see the lines growing. Well deserved!
