Perfect rainy afternoon lunch of grilled cheese and tomato soup. Wish I had bigger appetite or more people to share food with.

There are many reasons this restaurant is a long time favorite of mine. This last visit exemplified all of them. We were a party of 12, came for lunch on a time schedule set by one day university being held at the Crest Theater. We had pretty limited time and advised the desk when we arrived. The staff did everything... More

This place is very loud due to the club scene next door on the weekends, but it's a good place to grab desert or a quick bite to eat before a show or going to the convention center. They're very nicely located and they even have $7 valet parking before 7PM. This works good for most people going to a... More

Much to choose from but kept it simple--tomato soup and grilled ham and cheese. More food than I could finish. COMFORT! The soup was wonderful! Sit outside, they have heaters and canopies. Can't wait to go back. Great choice.

This place is great. The food is so good, the wait staff is amazing and the decor is great. After 10 it turns into a night hot spot which is fun to hang out and have cocktails. The brunch on Sunday is also excellent.

Cafeteria 15L is located near the Convention Center, Capitol Building, and Hyatt. The food is good and won't break the bank. There are different parts of the restaurant which have different feelings. There are large tvs in the back area, good for drinking and watching sports. The front area has bench-like seating for groups of friends who want to chat.... More

Granted it was a Friday night but the name implies comfort food. This really is a nightclub--actually a combination of a couple food outlets and several bars. Fun place. Trendy. Not a cafeteria. I had the prime rib special, which was quite good and properly cooked. The challenges came in the details. Had to ask for the creamy horseradish that... More

Cafeteria 15L was a great stop during a weekend getaway. The food and service were fantastic. It was a bit pricey, but I'd still go there again. I don't often eat in any bigger city, but my guess is the pricing is more about the added expense of the location than anything else.

The Roasted chicken berry salad was meh. They left some grizzle on the chicken (you know the kind you have to spit out and... More
