Always a treat to visit the Dream Cafe. The food and menu is creative and unique. Tasty dishes - just the right size. Music is often exceptional. The venue reminds me of New Yorks Blue Note - enjoy

The Dream Cafe lives up to its name. Amazing atmosphere, entertainment and food. This is a great room to sit back in and enjoy the show. If you are looking for live entertainment ... look no further... it doesn't get any better than this!

Lived here since 1984, first ever visit and that's a shame. An intimate and exciting venue, fantastic entertainment and wicked good food. Would more than highly recommend the cafe fora romantic visit or a group outing.

I have shared so many memorable moments here with friends. The music is always amazing and it truly is an opportunity to become acquainted with so many different genres of music. Truly a must on any visit.

My boyfriend and I went here because I god a groupon. The sandwich was excellent and the salad it came with was even better! Love the live entertainment! Unfortunately the waitress seemed disinterested in her job and like she didn't want to be there.
