We're so happy that we found out about Cafe du Jour. The setting is simple but the food is not. I had a wonderful dish featuring chile ginger glazed salmon. Everyone in our party of six loved their meals. The fact that is it BYOB is a plus - we had a great meal with good service for a reasonable... More

It looks like the lunch counter in an old time drug store, but the food that comes out is amazing! We started with the fennel meatballs and the bruschetta. Both were yummy and enough to split up among the 4 of us. The duck comfit was one of the best duck I've ever tasted and the short rib special measured... More

This tiny BYO and cash only spot is still serving up some very very good dinners. Service was excellent, and we finished off the last of the braised short rib dish, had duck confit, and Moroccan lamb for the main entrees. Friendly service and you wonder how they put out such consistent and creative meals on just a couple of... More

Whenever approaching Cafe du Jour, you are surprised at the lack of "image" but the food more than makes up for the ambiance. This is a great, great choice before a show at The City Theater. The Cafe is within easy walking distance and the service is prompt and reliable. But truly, go for the food!!! BYOB and Cash only.

Two friends and I met for dinner before the show we were seeing at the City Theater. The weather was lovely, so we enjoyed the wonderful back courtyard. We shared a spinach pecorino dip (served with baguette) to start. We each enjoyed our entrees (I had the braised short ribs with polenta, Sharon had the eggplant, and Jen the salmon).... More

Dinner was amazing! The outside seating area was so perfect for a not too hot summer evening. The service was perfect and the food was amazing. Food was incredible and it's BYOB and only $2/stem. Definitely a must for any foodies out there!

Finally made it here. Great service and atmosphere. A hidden gem-great outdoor courtyard. Bubbling pond ,an abundance of greenery, and neat art. Good was delicious. Had the spinach dip , salad, and eggplant roll ups. Each one was perfect. Hubby wants to return for his birthday-the best review from him. Go but remember-cash only!

took our out of town guest and she enjoyed every bit as much as we normally do. Great food, service and value. we told the chef he should raise his prices on some items or reduce the quantity provided. the pork shoulder appetizer was very good, but awesome for the quality and price. still think they have the best salmon...

What a great dinner. The outside doesn't prepare you for the wonderful meal that awaits. Cash only, BYOB (only $2 per stem corkage-not per bottle). Summer seating in a lovely courtyard with water feature. Menu is small but everything is excellent. Went with friends shared the spinach dip and stuffed dates, 2 smoked salmon salads, 3 salmon and 1 stuffed... More

Adorable little spot in the south side. Very intimate setting for a special occasion or dinner out. The staff is unbelievable and committed to making your experience nothing but exceptional. The spinach dip for an appetizer with toast points was a must try. Lunch consisted of salmon, pork tenderloin and chicken dishes. All of these were delicious and just the... More
