First time to Sacramento; I enjoy local eateries! Tower Cafe was busy at 930 on Monday morning- a line had formed when we left. We were served quickly and efficiently and our meal was hearty! Menu is limited in choices, but there is something for every taste. Enjoyed the eclectic collection of items that decorate the walls and ceiling! Outdoor... More

The owners have a most interesting and eclectic collection of artifacts from their many travels. The cafe is super busy, because it's just plain fun to eat there and the food is consistently good. They have inside and outside eating. The service has always been great, even when they are very busy. We go there every chance we get.

We almost always go to the Tower Cafe when we go to Sacramento. One of the best features is that it never seems to matter what time you go...they are open! The place is fun and eclectic. The outside eating area is charming and delightful. The location is so easy to reach by both Freeway (80) and surface streets and... More

Lovely atmosphere on the patio amidst Japanese maples and cypresses - you would never know there is a super-busy street yards away. Fairly quick service and a varied menu. I tried the Texasia skirt steak and everyone at my table wanted some; warm corn salad with peppers was amazing. The servings are generous without being ridiculous. The seafood pasta looked... More

When I have eaten at Tower Cafe, it has always been breakfast or brunch - and it is always outstanding! The food is great, and generous. But the atmosphere is so restful & inviting, I don't know which I love more!

Perhaps my expectations are always too high, but I am never extremely impressed with the food. The restaurant has a gorgeous patio that is perfect for breakfast. The french toast is extremely delicious, but everything else I've tried has been underwhelming.

I ate at the Tower Cafe with three business associates on a Monday night. We all enjoyed the professional service and the good food. The prices were very reasonable for the good quality of the food which was prepared just as requested. Good quality for a good price with great service = overall Great.

Beautiful atmosphere lots of shade for outside dining. I had the eggs Benedict my son had the american burger and hubby had chorizo con eggs. Of course I grabbed a taste of their food, needless to say it was delicious. The portions are plenty we all took leftover home. Service was great.
