Great place for breakfast. Went for the first time on Sunday brunch. Huge portions. My husband had the jalapeno corned beef hash which he said was one of the best he's tried and I had the mole breakfast. The mole which just perfect with the right mix of spice and sweet. Glad we went before 9am though because when we... More

Ambiance is fantastic on the patio on a cooler spring or fall day, or even inside during the summer heat. Menu is great. Haven't been in some time, so can't recommend anything particular, but I've never had a bad meal or experience here in the years I've lived in Sacramento. Can get busy, so expect a bit of a wait...

I often meet friends at the Tower because it's centrally located - easy access and parking is at location and free. The food is always delicious and when the weather is good, the patio dining is perfect. I usually get one of the salads and the deserts winking at you from the glass display are most tempting. Coffee also is... More

No matter what I order, it is always excellent. I eat there every couple of months with my friends. Not only is the food great, but the service is very good too. We usually sit outside and love it. It's a very inviting atmosphere.

Had breakfast on son's last day home before he returns to DC. Went to Tower Cafe. Had coffee, wife ordered corn meal pancakes; son had a Denver omelette; I ordered bacon and eggs. I had to order a side of toast @ $2.50 as they don't serve it with any of their breakfasts. Wife said her pancakes were dry; son... More

We have eaten at the Tower Cafe before with our son and daughter-in-law. Today we had the special shrimp omelette and the eggs with bangers. Both meals were very good and the service as always was excellent. I also like the coffee here. We bought some pastries to take home as well. We will eat here again

Tower Cafe is one of the most Hip places to have an mouth watering, outdoor breakfast. The Bloody Mary's count for an full vegetable serving and the sourdough french toast is the best I've eaten. The diner area outside is wonderful and has a spirtual atmosphere, I've never eaten indoors, but it looks Kool inside, as I have gone inside... More

Upon verbal reviews from friends, we decided to try Tower Cafe for breakfast on our last day in Sacramento. It did no disappoint. We sat outside, in the beautiful patio area near the fountain. Everyone in my party had French toast for the main dish (SO good!) and we had potatoes and chicken sausage as well. It was very good... More
