Good Food, Great Prices and Nice Atmosphere

The Sage is a up-scale cafe. The soups are good, the fish and chips is good. The flat bread with butter, honey and powdered sugar is a nice start!

My wife and I come to San Diego several times a year as well as for a lengthy visit during the winter. Barona Casino is a must stop. Each time we are there we go to the Sage Cafe. We are always greeted warmly and served the same. The food and service are excellent. We always look forward to dining... More

As much as we like Barona Casino, the Sage Cafe was very disappointing. Our waitress was slow, surly and acted like she wanted to be any where but there. There didn't seem to be enough wait staff, yet there were four women standing around the hostess booth gabbing. The food was acceptable, but by the time we got got it,... More

We sat in the enclosed patio, overlooking the lake and mountains were we enjoyed our delicious breakfast. We all tried each other's food from delicious crunchy French Toast to eggs, omletes, and outstanding hash browns. I can't wait to go back!

The staff are very welcoming but unfortunately each visit validates that they need more staff serving the customers . I had to ask for my toasts twice , half of us were severed and it was another 5 minutes before the rest of us was... More

Good breakfasts and NOT over priced as so many casino meals are in this area. The only bad part is the murderous drive up Wildcat Canyon Road to reach Barona. Far too many losers speeding down the hill and far too many crazies driving like maniacs up the hill.

We dined at the cafe on a busy holiday morning. We had overslept & the staff understood that we needed to conclude our meal as soon as possible. One of my favorite places at Barona to eat.

The food was very good , with a large variety menu. Good quality and large quantity of food. Adjacent to the casino, but very quiet.
