This place is more known for their Sunday Brunch menu than the day to day visits. That's not to say that the locals don't enjoy going here to get a bite to eat every day and evening. However, they're are more known for their dipped French Toast than anything else. The decor of the place is some kind of 'jungle'... More

You MUST order the French Toast! It is the most amazing flavor explosion in your mouth that you will ever experience. Order something for breakfast and order the French Toast for dessert.

Tower Cafe is really fun! The cocktails, decor, and general ambiance make it stand out. However, if you go for brunch on the weekend it will be a VERY long wait. Even with reservations, we were waiting for quite a while (maybe 20-30 mins). The food is quite good, and the portions are generous. This is not somewhere I would... More

This was perfect in every way. You can marvel at the walls, sort thru difficult choices on the menu, get help from the well trained staff, then best of all enjoy the excellent food. Our first visit, but we will make this a must stop when we visit here again.

I eat at Tower a couple of times a month, at least. Hearty breakfasts and generous portions for lunch and dinner. Always flavorful. Their signature french toast is the best you will find. Only get the 1/2 order- It's a lot of food. The breakfast burrito is a monster too. Average prices. Lots of art, tapestries, live plants and hand... More

Good food but the ambience of the beautifully lit patio is awesome!! Had a delicious chicken sandwich and their desserts are always great! Stop by the Tower Theater next door before or after your meal or dessert for a movie.
