Description: For comforting food, a warm, relaxed atmosphere, an affordable outing for the whole family and camaraderie at the bar, The Silvertron Cafe has been a one-stop shop for residents of Birmingham for over 20 years. The Forest Park neighborhood has eagerly embraced the reopening of their old hangout which is now polished up and back in action. The new owner of The Silvertron Cafe, Marco Morosini, wants to welcome all of his dedicated patrons back to the restaurant that all of Birmingham can call their own. Like the start of any good restaurant marriage, Morosini and Silvertron Cafe have come together with some dishes old, some dishes new, some dishes borrowed and customers true blue. They have long been known for their generous portions and variety of menu items. Silvertron continues to add to that tradition to introducing new dishes (many healthier options), new cocktails and new wines. Feeling a little pinch in your wallet this year? Silvertron is still one of Birmingham's best deals in dining out. And to sweeten that deal, every Monday at Silvertron Cafe is Monday Night Pasta with every pasta on the menu only $7.95, and $1 off glasses of wine or $4 off bottles of wine. Tex-Mex Tuesdays offers a fun sampling of dishes and $3 margaritas, sure to please. Every Wednesday evening, martinis are only $4; making Silvertron an ideal place to gather with friends and celebrate the survival of the first half of the work week. It is the perfect place for a workday lunch, dinner with the kids, an evening cocktail with friends, an award-winning Saturday morning breakfast or for Sunday brunch. And if you cannot sit and relax, let Silverton prepare something for you to take home - or perhaps cater your next meeting or party

“Bread pudding so good I can hardly talk about it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

I suppose I should actually acknowledge that I ate a full meal at Silvertron. I had the chicken on oregano and rye foccacia. IT was my first time ever having fried goat cheese on a sandwich, which was indeed very interesting. Overall the sandwich was good, a little heavier than I needed that day, but worth a try.
What I really want to talk about is their bread pudding. When they brought it out I think I fell in love. Very big portion, so incredibly moist and the flavors were just perfect. So good I could cry. I will most certainly be going back to try that again (and next time I'll bring a friend to share)..

“Consistent food, fair prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

I eat here regularly. It's a nice neighborhood restaurant in the beautiful Forest Park area of Birmingham. The hummus and lasagna are made daily and are always good. The prices are fair, the service nice, and the food consistently good. It might not be the best restaurant in Birmingham, but definitely one of the better values.

“Great Retro Vibe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

Back in the 40's and 50's you could take your TV here to get it fixed. Now that we've smartened up, we just throw them away and buy a new one. So what's a TV fixit shop to do? Become a Restaurant!!! The framed photos all over the walls will take you back to "the good old days". Great vibe and good food. Heapin' helpings. I usually get the salad trio, because I can't make up my mind, there are so many good choices. Full bar, too. You'll leave feeling full and satisfied, and have gained some historical insight into old Birmingham.
