Located in the heart of historic Winters, Putah Creek Café serves up a variety of American fare with a small town feeling. The restaurant was very busy when we arrived and was even busier with a wait when we left. There was ample street parking in the area near the park. We were seated quickly, and a server took our drink order while we decided on what to order.
Today, we ordered the Davis Farmer’s Sandwich and Em’s Chicken Fried Steak. The Davis Farmer’s Sandwich had delicious tasting smoked tri-tip that went well with the au jus. Instead of coleslaw, I opted for French fries, which tasted fresh and delicious. I wish the size of the sandwich was bigger with more meat for the price paid. Em’s Chicken Fried Steak had a nice tasting country gravy on top with very flavorful potatoes. The eggs tasted good, but the actual steak only tasted OK. The meat was fresh, but the breading was kind of hard. The biscuit tasted great with the gravy and was nice and fluffy inside.
Overall, Putah Creek Café serves up delicious tasting American food, but the prices seem a bit high for what you get. I do not think the food is really worth the drive out to Winters. I have heard good things about their pies though. Given another opportunity to visit Winters, I would probably not come to Putah Creek Café for a meal, but maybe dessert.
