Description: In the spirit of the neighborhood European café, the Bernardo menu changes with the season. Salads, soups, daily breads, sandwiches, pizzettas, and burgers compliment entrees of fresh fish, steak and chicken, making Bernardo a healthy dinner house with café prices. Lunch and dinner dishes reflect the bounty of local ingredients and the certified green kitchen in which they are created.

“Just average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

What to say about food that tastes like it was purchased at Safeway deli. Ther was nothing special about the food here and a long wait to get it didn't help.

“Quality compromised”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

Cafe Bernardo is part of a group that usually can be counted on for top quality. Today though - a busy Sunday lunchtime- the chopped salad was tasteless, extremely bland dressing, and the pepperoni pizza was deficient in mushrooms. Otherwise the pizza was chewy and tasty. The butternut squash soup was super delicious. We liked the format of order at the counter, and the staff were all friendly and helpful.

“Great breakfast, great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Located right down the street from Citizen Hotel and we went here for breakfast. Lots of good options - all for less than $9 - including entree, toast and potatoes. Clean and friendly service. They also had lots of good looking options for lunch - good soup, sandwiches, salads.
We sat inside but they had a good sized outdoor patio if you wanted to get some fresh air.

“Good lunch choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

On a weekday at lunchtime, the café was casual, quiet and pleasant in a funky way. There were many interesting choices on the menu, and we settled on a dish of polenta wedges with marinara and a turkey burger, both fresh and flavorful. Prices were very reasonable. If we’re ever in the area again, we’ll be sure to stop by again.
