A Little Diner With Great Food

by JJ Grant (he/him)

I could not think of a better place to try for breakfast on a slow Thursday morning than the top-rated diner in Petaluma, Sax’s Joint. I went into the '50s-themed diner on an empty stomach, ready for whatever my heart desired that morning.

The decision of what to order was a hard one, but in the end, I chose the Little P, which consists of 3 pieces of sourdough french toast, one piece of bacon, one piece of sausage, a choice of eggs, and of course, a side of maple syrup.

My overall rating of the Little P was a 7.2 out of 10. Each part of the meal received its own rating: bacon being an 8.5 out of 10, sausage a 5.3 out of 10. The bacon was above average, but definitely wasn’t the best bacon I have had in my life, and the sausage was slightly above average, but lacked flavor and could’ve been cooked longer.

The star of the show in the Little P was the sourdough french toast, which received a 6.7 out of 10; I felt it lacked flavor before I added maple syrup. Then for the eggs, I gave them an 8.3 out of 10. I feel it is tough for a diner or restaurant to go wrong with eggs, but regardless of their simplicity I still thoroughly enjoyed the flavor of the eggs and how well they complimented the bacon and sausage.
