As downtown Roanoke’s living options have expanded, so too have the number of casual and easy dining options, now including Sarah’s Place, a small café and bakery located in The Patrick Henry on Jefferson Street. Sarah’s Place describes itself as specializing in “simply good food,” serving the early morning breakfast crowd and lunch goers throughout the week.
My first visit to Sarah’s Place was around eight o’clock one morning for breakfast. The breakfast menu is relatively simple, mainly comprising breakfast sandwiches, oatmeal and waffles, along with a number of rotating bakery treats such as freshly made donuts and assorted pastries.
Because we like a heartier breakfast, my dining companion and I both opted for breakfast sandwiches. I ordered the bacon, egg and cheese biscuit ($2.50) and he chose the ham, egg, and cheese bagel ($2.50). In addition, we ordered two coffees ($1.65 each).
New patrons should note that the folks at Sarah’s Place make everything to order, meaning that there is typically a short wait while the items are prepared.
