Tower Cafe is very popular in Sacramento. The food is pretty decent, and eclectic. The drinks are usually just ok, nothing spectacular. And there is an amazing garden area, one of the best outdoor dining spots in Sacramento, in my opinion. HOWEVER, often the wait for a table is ridiculous. And seating inside the restaurant is super loud. I don't... More

We ate at the Tower frequently when my adult kids lived close by. I take visitors and it's always a favorite, especially the courtyard. Only bad thing, it's always crowded, especially Sunday morning brunch.

This is a great place to eat. I have only eaten breakfast here but it was fabulous! I highly recommend the french toast! I shared a half order and even that was a lot. I got eggs and bacon as well. yummy! If you come on the weekend,get there early or expect to wait awhile. It's very popular on weekends... More

Nice selection of craft beers, nice vibe, and great for when you can't make up your mind(or don't want to)! I ordered the Korean Wings for an app, excellent, and the fish and chips, fantastic...how is that for a combo? LOL Service was good as were the prices. I would definitely go again!

Thank a1beachbum10
