Excellent lunch!

Please don't believe the "strip mall" description that was in one review. I would describe this little gem as in a neighborhood between a dentist office and a boutique.

This cafe actually serves better French cafe food than I found in most restaurants in France (and I spent a month searching for good food). The salads are super fresh and tasty. The cafe is small with a little bit of outdoor seating and filled up for lunch very quickly. The service was excellent and there is a good wine... More

Stacy's Favorite used to be made with Roast Beef, not it is a choice of Smoked Salmon or Ham - not as good. And let's talk about the salad, it used to be simple, a perfect compliment to the sandwich, now it is a monster with other junk in it like beans and carrots - they were soft, like soggy... More

We were in Sacramento for a wedding and were looking for a good, inexpensive meal the night we arrived. Saw Cafe Rolle listed on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives website. We all got baguette sandwiches, which were delicious. The au gratin potatoes were amazing. The portions were large. We took leftovers back to our hotel and ate them for breakfast the... More

Strip mall in eastern part of city center so no ambiance. But the food is wonderful. Authentic. Prepared by those who know. Passed it for years and it seemed it was always a Monday when closed. Final had my French lunch. Recommended.

The Cafe is small and usually has a line at lunch. The food is fabulous and overall a wonderful experience. I have taken so many people here that did not know about it and they all love it.

I have eaten lunch 3times and had the Salmon Sandwich! Delicious! Friendly, efficent waiters. Check schedule, it closes at 3:00 PM and reopens for dinner. Hours may be sporatic so check schedule. If closed you can try Sellands across the street. The Salmon Sandwich keeps me coming back.

A favorite lunch place with an exceptional variety of menu items and scrumptious food. The prices are unbelievable. Everyone is friendly and the service is great. Fun to be able to see the chef in the kitchen while you're dining.
