With parents at each of the
state, I've been up and down I-5 a few times. One road side restaurant,
that I like to visit, is the Apricot Tree.
On our way down to San Diego
to go to Comicon, Karen and I had breakfast at the Apricot Tree.
The décor is roadside
kitch. The rafters are all lined with lunch boxes from different eras while
the booths are lined with the corresponding thermoses.
I had a basic eggs, bacon,
sausage breakfast, with two Apricot muffins (very tasty). Karen had biscuits
and gravy. Karen felt there should have been more meat in the gravy, like
her grandmother makes, but you can't win them all.
Sadly, the shake machine
was not working, so I couldn't get a Apricot shake (all of their Apricot
related foods are fairly tasty). However, the fresh squeezed orange juice
probably went better with breakfast.
Afterwards, we wandered through
the gift shop and then headed on our way.
