they had some very nice refreshing cocktails...I liked them enough to return twice. food was good (4 out of 5). Ambiance nice too. it was a bit loud in the restaurant but there were enough choices of types of seating that you could move to something more intimate where talking was easier.

This is by far my favorite brunch spot, but also love coming here for drinks and apps too! For brunch I always find myself ordering the eggs Benedict with bacon jam...yes, jam. Sounds weird, but I promise it's delish. I've also tasted the French toast and potato skillet - everything was great. Plus, the service is so fast. I thought... More

Found this place by mistake and loved it. I had a "small plate" which consisted of 3 sliders (I could only finish 1.5 of it). My friend had a lovely big burger with really thin french fries. So bad for you, but soooo good.... This place shares communal premises with a Korean BBQ and an Asian 'diner' , which was... More

Was working on a conference at the convention center. Cafeteria 15L is conveniently a block away so we stopped in and ended up coming back a couple times. Menu is varied and the atmosphere is great. They were training new servers each time I was in so they must have some turnover but people were friendly and the food was... More

I just went to Cafeteria with a small party for brunch and I was so utterly disappointed! We had to wait for our table for an hour and fifteen minutes DESPITE having a reservation. No one came to say I'm sorry about the wait, they made several attempts to piece together some tables that were ridiculously in the middle of... More

In July, we went to Cafeteria L in Sacramento, during "happy hour", staying for dinner. My husband's NY steak, for $18.95 was superb. I had the house special, chicken and waffles, way too much for one person. What was the best was the appetizers, very well priced. We had an artichoke dip and spring rolls. Next time, I think we...

Had brunch with my wife at Cafeteria 15L. We've had dinner here a few times, but this was our first time for brunch. We were immediately greeted by the hostess and seated in the patio. It was nice morning weather. We waited for a little while for our server. The table behind us were seated after us, but served before... More

It was one of those cooler early summer afternoons in Sacramento, so we sat outside on the patio that does not have much street noise. The service and food is excellent . I had the entree of grilled salmon with delta asparagus, romanesco, red peppers, mushroms and blood ornage butter. The salmon was cooked to perfection and my daughter had... More

I visited on a busy day for lunch. The place was packed and there was I wait for a table. I say in the full service bar instead. The waitress was friendly and cheerful and the food was fast and delicious!
