We stopped in to try this place out on a Sunday for some brunch. This is a really nice little café  great food and great service. The atmosphere is very relaxing. We had the Biscuit sandwich which had a very nice light and fluffy biscuit. We also got the ham egg and cheese sandwich which had a large portion of eggs and good flavor ham More...

really great coffee and food. they keep decaf on hand for me, the staff is always friendly, and their breakfast is great. I also eat Sinas soups several times a week, and the only bad thing about them is when she runs out! Love ya guys, keep up the good work (They also deliver to merchants on main!) More...

On Memorial Day my sweetheart and I ventured in for some breakfast, I ordered the French Toast Breakfast Sandwich with added strawberry jam since the description reminded me of a monte cristo sandwhich, tho slightly different. It was delicious and sweet with a nice amount of meat, eggs, powdered sugar and syrup. The strawberry jam was sweet and really brought the sandwich up a notch, the sandwich was great on it's own tho so I didn't add much syrup. To drink I ordered a classic breakfast staple, a small Orange Juice, delicious!I would definitely recommend stopping into this restaurant yourself, they have beautiful artwork displayed throughout we enjoyed looking at, nice stained glass on the doors and the staff are very friendly and helpful! Especially our cashier, she gave great recommendations, it had been so long since I stopped in that I don't remember what I ordered. From the looks of it, they are definitely known for their biscuits and gravy and I can see why, I tried a bite of my man's and it's damn good, ordering next time! You can tell they make everything homemade here! More...

A quaint breakfast- lunch cafe stop on our scenic drive in gold country. I had a Turkey club wrap that was excellent. Hubby had tortilla soup and a half gold rush sandwich. All good. Soup was very good. We were too late for breakfast but I saw some plates and they looked yum. Staff friendly. Didn't have any sweets but the plate size cookies looked fresh and scrumptious. More...

I had a cup of coffee from the self service coffee dispensers. The coffee was lukewarm so I asked a young man to heat it up in the microwave for a minute. He was more than accommodating.Much better when you get hot coffee. The quiche was piping hot and pretty good for late in the day.It's a locally owned cafe by a woman. Who seems to run the business herself along with some assistance. More...

This is the best place for food! Homemade everything and reasonably priced. The owners are my favorite part of the place. They always take care of the costumer and their employees. Just good people making good food. If you come to Sutter Creek, this is a must stop! More...

What a wonderful surprise this place was.  I went to Sutter Creek to plan my wedding there this past November and just happened to pop into Sina's Backroads cafe for lunch after a morning of checking out churches, Halls and other localities for our wedding. Not only was lunch there very good, but I found out that they also did catering services.  I spoke with the owner, John Hanning and he was very helpful and responsive in answering all our questions over the next few weeks.  We only had a month to plan our wedding and so needed to act quickly.  At one point we found out that the Hall we had reserved would not allow us to have any alcohol, not even a champaign toast.  I called John in a panic because we were now only about 20 days out from our wedding date.  He calmed me down and told me to let him do some research.  In no time at all he was able to help us secure a new location that worked out just great.  Talk about above and beyond! The wedding reception went off as planned and John took care of every detail to make the event run smoothly.  The food was terrific and we got lots of compliments on the bbq chicken and tri-tip entree as well as the side dishes and appetizers that went with it.  I couldn't be more pleased with our memorable wedding and reception and I will be forever grateful for John Hanning's incredible service and delicious food.

Fun cafe with great service. Great variety and prices were fair.  The BTL was great and the mushroom quiche was yummy and only 4.50. We had a huge homemade oatmeal cookie ($1.75) hour that was awesome. And our tea and coffee was perfect. It was busy obviously well liked by locals tooWe hope to come back to Sutter Creek this summer with the family. There was a lot to see and do. More...

I would absolutely give it five stars if they had some additional variations of vegetarian food. The quiches good , needs a little updating perhaps to some leafy greens , spinach , collard greens . Maybe add some bell peppers and red onions. The owner is very accommodating. And I absolutely love the peanut butter cookies . More...

Great Coffee!  (When Open - Just Make Sure Place IS Open Before Driving Some Distance To Get There)SITREPWalking down the main drag (actually in fact, "Main St.) of the bustling little hamlet of Sutter Creek, you see one Wine Bar right after another Wine Bar.  But if you look among those wine bars, and other nearby cafes and Antique shops, you will find Sina's Backroads Café nestled among them - it is a welcome reprieve from inebriation when you need that solid kick in the pants.yelp.com/biz_photos/sina…THE SETUPThis was a good spot I enjoyed a few times while spending the extended weekend of Sept 6-9 in Amador County with lots of friends from all over the state.  Besides coffee, it is also setup for great breakfast and lunch fare.  It also was the perfect spot to drink a tasty roasted brew while getting much needed wifi'ing & writing done while chilling out, but also while juicing up my energy reserves for more event-madness in the evening.yelp.com/biz_photos/sina…THE COFFEEIt has delicious roasts: on the times I succeeded here, I found there was always at least two caffeinated, and one decaf version of roasted coffee on rotation in their café:  something that one of my companions appreciated in this day and age of indie cafes that seem to forgo decaffeinated options.  yelp.com/biz_photos/sina…On one occasion, however, the shop was not open during posted hours during our weekend excursion.  Well, I guess that was just my bad timing, and I didn't think anything of it ...that was, however, until it happened AGAIN, which leads me to the next section....CATERING SCHEDULE - MY ISSUEThe café staff also have a very bustling catering business, which is great, because I think it's important to diversify and not have "all your eggs in one basket".  Now, I am not familiar with their catering from direct patronage or contact, but I am INdirectly:  when I came back to Amador County on a subsequent weekend morning/early afternoon of Saturday Oct 13 (while up for a wedding at Iron Hub Winery in Plymouth beforehand), I was bragging to fellow celebrants about how cool this coffee stop was (and to be fair, it still is).  And so since we had a wee bit o' time before the wedding, we made a side-trek to specifically come here, since it's almost impossible to find indie-level quality coffee anywhere else while in transit throughout Amador County [unless you go to the Jackson Rancheria Casino, or further up past Plymouth in the other direction on HWY 49 towards Placerville - YES, that's how hard it is to find GOOD (commercially available) COFFEE in Amador County!]The only problem is when we arrived - at 1:00 pm - during normal business hours as posted on the door and on Yelp, the entire place was shut down:  yelp.com/biz_photos/sina…= apparently when they have a catering gig, one is only *noticed* by a paper sign on the window of the door; and,= we spent 30 minutes in round-trip driving and too late to head anywhere else before the wedding.PRO-TIPHopefully the coffee shop's staffing won't be impacted too much by the catering side.  So to my fellow patrons, just a friendly FYI:  check ahead for scheduling snafus. [ADDENDUM:  By the way, I just found out from the friendly owner Jon H. that they have a Facebook page where the cafe schedule and other metrics are updated!]THE LOWDOWNIf you can make the connection here - because you're already in Sutter Creek - grab some great coffee.

My out of town friends and I stopped for lunch yesterday. I’ve had a couple sandwiches here already and we all agreed the sandwiches were perfect size. Not too much, or too small. And of course very tasty. We had the pastrami, the turkey cranberry and one of us had the salad. More...

We got the mother lode which is a country gravy smothered biscuit with an over easy egg on top. Heaven! Their gravy is probably the best I've ever had. The wait was a bit long, but it takes time to make delicious, fresh food. OJ was fresh and my chai tea was perfect. More...

Sinas backroads is an amazing local cafe. Owners are some of the most amazing people you will ever meet. This business is run with pride and good taste. You can tell they care so much about the community around them. The chai latte is my favorite drink and this is my favorite spot to get a Ruben!! Staff is welcoming and clean! I love this spot and will continue to eat here forever! Thanks Jon and Sina for caring about your costumers and giving the best service in the county! We love you! More...

We selected the highly recommended WRP to cater our wedding in 2016. From the moment we met Jon and Sina we knew we were in good hands. The food we chose was absolutely delicious, my guests were very pleased as were we and Jon took on the role making sure everything ran smoothly, down to cutting the cake :). We have been to their quaint little spot in Sutter Creek and enjoyed it very much. Reasonable prices with a down home menu. I would recommend Jon and Sina's "WRP Backroads"  to anyone looking for a great catering experience as well as stopping in to grab a yummy breakfast or lunch in beautiful Sutter Creek!!These are quality folks, both professionally and personally!!

In a town of limited food options, Backroads always remains consistent with its quality food and friendly service. One of my favorite sandwiches-The Jimbo. Turkey, melted cheese, salsa...yum. Deserts are great, coffee drinks are delicious, salads are perfect, and BBQ is what they do best. John and Sina know how to keep their customers happy! More...

Coming to Sutter Creek to do some wine tasting with friends, we decided to grab some lunch before we began our tasting tour. We stopped in Sina's Backroads Cafe, an inconspicuous little spot off the main street in downtown Sutter Creek. Their menu was simple: sandwiches, wraps, etc. I decided on the chicken salad sandwich for my lunch.The service was fast and friendly - you can tell it's a local and family-run type of place. And our sandwiches were delicious! It was one of the best chicken salad sandwiches I've ever had. The bread was fresh and soft but held up to the massive scoops of chicken salad, lettuce, and tomato loaded inside. I could have eaten two more of my sandwich. What a nice little gem in downtown Sutter Creek!So the next time you find yourself in Sutter Creek, or the surrounding area, do yourself a favor and stop by to grab a sandwich that'll remind you of your childhood and may even beat the ones Grandma used to make.

Did a yelp search to find a great breakfast spot in Sutter Creek, and my fellow yelpers did not let me down! This place is the bomb. Exceptional customer service. Even though we were from out of the area, they made us feel as welcome as locals. The food is great as is the price, and there was nothing left on our plates. We actually arrived shortlly after their breakfast cut off, and even though they were completely slammed with customers, they prepared our coveted breakfast. Next time in the area, we will make sure we arrive before the cutoff time, and i recommend you do the same. The coffee was so good here as well. This is a popular spot in the local area so be prepared for a reasonable wait. This is an exceptionally well run local restaurant, and we will definitely return when in the area, only next time we will arrive before breakfast cutoff. The ingredients are top notch. This restaurant exceeded our expectations, in food quality, service, price and ambiance. The owners are so personable, they make you feel so welcome, that you really do not want to leave. I so look forward to a return visit More...
