The garden is the place to be on a warm evening. Street noise can be high along Broadway, so chose a table farther in.

Great ambiance ... Nice and efficient wait staff I've been back to the Tower Cafe several times as the food is unique and delicious. Neither my friends nor I have been at all disappointed. I've had a fantastic burrito. The Jamaican Jerk (pulled pork) is fantastic as is the Thai green curry. We've split desserts and all have been excellent.... More

Went to the Illuminance Festival of Light held on the Capitol Mall, and met up with friends afterwards for brunch. Famed french toast did not disappoint, nor did the ambiance and history of the location. Would definitely recommend seating outside, but to remember to tour the inside as well.

They are always in search of "good food" and like to try new places when they travel. They both agreed that the Tower's specialty, French Toast, was the best they ever had. It... More

This place has changed menu's several times over the years. The tried and true standard American fair never fails, but recently, they have swayed away from all things too green and added items sure to cause gastrointestinal disorders! I recently had what seemed to be an overstuffed chicken sandwich Ala Dagwood style that nearly killed me! Along with a side... More
