My family lives a short 25 minutes away from some of California’s cutest and most well preserved gold rush towns. Walking the oak lined streets of Sutter Creek makes you feel like going back in time. Although, the food scene takes notes from its Farm to Fork Capitol neighbor with updated, bright restaurants with local produce, specialty coffee, and brunch menus.
Shopping at Made in Amador
The tiny storefront has only been open for two months and has artfully curated goods that are handmade by the owner or scouted from other local creators. My sister left with a California poppy print and I snagged a fruits and veggie calendar for my kitchen.
Lunch at Buffalo Chips
Buffalo Chips is a mix of all things good and right in this world. I’m talkin’ equal parts updated and antique, homemade and out-of-town specialties, and all around perfect. The space is soaked in natural light and adorned in framed vintage California themed aprons, candy jars, and stained glass. They serve Verve coffee from Santa Cruz, McConnell’s ice cream from Santa Barbara, and just about everything else is homemade. You have to try their focaccia bread!
Browsing Bell Home & Flower Garden
If you’re looking for truly one of a kind decor, Bell Home and Flower Garden is a must-do! They have three neighboring storefronts with everything from garden decor, birdcages, giant mirrors, and tiny cheese markers for a charcuterie board.
