The Eatery in West Sacramento

The Eatery in West Sacramento

We are so sad to hear The Eatery in Southport Town Center has closed their doors. Owners Jess Milbourn and Monda Korich-Milbourn did such a great job providing a unique dining experience for us in West Sacramento and we are very sad to see them go.
