I picked Cafeteria 15L solely because it was walking distance from our hotel and I was so happy I did! The interior is beautifully modern, a little industrial vibe to it, but with warm wood touches that make it feel comfortable. We were seated by the large front windows that look out to the outdoor patio which also looked lovely.... More

So good. So full. The tater tots are delicious. And the special with the beef short ribs was fantastic. My son had the beef sliders and those look really really good.

There are lots of great brunch spots in Sacramento-- Bacon & Butter, Fox & Goose, Roxy, Magpie....but we're adding Cafeteria to our list. My husband & daughter love a great Benedict & they were not disappointed! This one was on brioche & my husband would call it his favorite. Great hollindaise-- but potatoes need some work. Still...that didn't detract from... More

This was our second happy hour stop. They have some good cocktails and some good menu items. We especially loved the $5 macaroni and cheese with orecchiette noodles. The sliders were good and the chicken strips as well.

My friends and I were visiting the city for a business conference and were referred to the restaurant. The restaurant receives high marks for the decor and the ambience, but the food was just okay. When our food arrived everything looked beautiful--the presentation was A+; however, the food lacked flavor. What a disappointment! There were 4 in my group and... More

A good vibe, pleasant shaded outside patio, efficient service. I enjoyed a lovely chicken and fruit salad with blue cheese. I'd return. Good place for business meeting.

Family took me here for my birthday, great experience. All items ordered were excellent, but my chicken and waffles were awesome. Like a gourmet cafeteria, loud, fun, and friendly. Huge place with lots of seating options.

Really fun and unusual modern place near the state capitol. Absolutely fantastic menu and stunning decor. It's such a phenomenal mix of industrial and natural, antique, and vintage furniture and appliances. We had our lunch inside because it was 107 outside, but their outdoor seating seems incredibly pleasant as well. The food is really great as well; I had the... More

Such a cool and interesting place! Love, love, loved the decor! Very eclectic! Our service was excellent. We were seated right away. ( We did have a reservation) Our server took both our drink and food orders promptly. I had the french dip and daughter had the seared ahi tuna salad. My french dip was very good. I really liked...

I always want to like this place more than I do. Why? Great location, nice patio, interesting menu but the size and taste never quite measure up to my expectations. So if I were you I would walk another block or two and try a different restaurant.

Thank lisan664
