This Paraguay-owned restaurant has been remodeled. If possible, request a table in the interior courtyard setting. It is quite a nice atmosphere in which to enjoy well-prepared meals.

We usually go to Cafe Bernardo in Pavilions, but our friends wanted to try the one in midtown...big mistake. First off, don't plan on eating outside because the bar next door allows smoking outside and the foul odor invariably drifts over to the restaurant seating area. We ordered one of their pizzetas and a side salad...both very disappointing. The salad... More

This Sactown Cafe has been a destination place to have a filling meal that is fresh and satisfying. It does have a high noise level.

My wife and I had the best salad and best sandwich we've had in a very long time. First time for me and will surely be back again.

Just had lunch there with my wife. She had a habenero burger with sweet potato fries and I had a Vietnamese sandwich with regular fries. Both were okay. Nothing special but not bad. Both orders of fries were good. Ambience too was just fair. Prices were high for what you got.

The outside dining on Capital makes this an extra fun breakfast/lunch restaurant. You have to order at the bar and the server brings your meal. The coffee is great and breakfast selections a nice variety. I recommend this for a casual breakfast.

My husband was in Sutter Hospital for ten days. I rented a motel. Cafe Bernardo was about a block from the hospital, so I ended up there for at least one meal a day. The meals were very good and some of the servers were outstanding. I especially liked their chopped salad, for lunch or dinner. Breakfast was very good... More

Cafe Bernardo is my absolute favorite restaurant in midtown Sacramento. My favorite item is the chicken sandwich. Other great items are Caesar salad, mushrooms, and your pizzas. You matter what you order, you will love it. They use farm fresh produce and have an amazing variety of meals. For breakfast, I would highly recommend the Huevos Rancheros! The service is... More

This place has been around for a long time in Sacramento, so I am sad when I eat here and am disappointed in my meal. I gave it an average rating but it is borderline average. There has been quite a restaurant boom in Sacramento, with tons of far more enjoyable eating experiences. They haven't updated/changed their game in basically,... More

In the spirit of the neighborhood European café, the Bernardo menu changes with the season. Salads, soups, daily breads, sandwiches, pizzettas, and burgers compliment entrees of fresh fish, steak and chicken, making Bernardo a healthy dinner house with café prices. Lunch and dinner dishes reflect the bounty of local ingredients and the certified green kitchen in which they are created.
