This place is awesome. Happy hour rocks with lots of food and drink specials. Lots of energy and friendly bartenders. We ordered the triple fries and had to cancel our dinner reservations. They are delicious, but beware of the size. Great location downtown. Definitely a must !!!!

I had an interesting experience at the venue for the baby shower we hosted today. First, we arrived at about 10 am, an hour before the event, to set up with the florals we had prepared, some little sweet treats and make sure everything was "party perfect" before our guests and the guest of honor, Ashley, arrived. We put the... More

This was my second time at Cafeteria 15L. Staff is friendly, and food was reasonably priced and tasty. There are no vegetarian entree options on the menu, which is surprising today. Both times I modified one of their menu items to suit me. The rest of my party enjoyed their choices.

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.
