We dined at Cafe Abrego three times during a two-night stay at the Abrego Hotel; once for dinner and twice for breakfast. The food is delicious and the service is top notch.

I met a friend at Cafe Abrego for appetizers. They were SO delicious! The crab cakes, asparagus, and all of the other small plates were delicious, innovative, and reasonably priced. They have a relatively new chef and I am happy to get the word out that this is a great place for a glass of wine and delicious meal.

We came in for dinner on Mother's Day. Anna was so great! She really made the evening extra special for my family. The food was good and Anna made me the best margarita I have never had.

This was about a block away from our hotel. The staff was so nice. We had a lovely chicken Caesar salad. They have a full bar and they serve Coke products. Nice fireplace; excellent menu. We'll go back for sure.

Loved the crab cakes and the cole slaw. We had a light dinner with one order split for two with a glass of wine.

We were staying at the hotel and always cautious of hotel restaurants, we decided to check out the lounge and restaurant. It was great - warm friendly service, beautiful dining room and superb food prepared by Chef Joey. The food is exquisitely prepared, with original takes on on what you may have thought were standard dishes. The success of the... More
