Third Strike Cafe, serving "essential comfort food," is scheduled to open one block from the Rivercats stadium in late May.
The location will serve the large DGS and CalSTRS state worker populations during the mornings and hungry minor league baseball fans in the evening.
Per their Web site, they'll serve dinner starting on May 27 for game days from 4 to 7 p.m. and and be open for breakfast service starting on June 2.
They describe dining options as BBQ ribs and chicken, mac and cheese, beer, artisan coffee and sweet pastries.
I stopped by earlier in the week to check the place out, but it was all locked up. I'll definitely give the place a try on my way to a Rivercats Game.
Third Strike Cafe is located at 630 3rd St. in West Sacramento, across from the Ziggurat Building, and can be found online at ThirdStrikeCafe.com.
