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

Decided to try Silvertron Cafe as it has been several years since I've eaten at this local establishment. Their location is good but the good stops there. The decor is a hodgepodge of styles... obviously going for some type of bohemian chic but missing the mark. The restaurant had plenty of tables available, however, the hostess walked us thru the main dining room and sat us in the bar in the back. I understand the need for the bartender to make tips on a slow night but that is not my responsibility and the bar is best described as "grungy". The staff was pleasant although not well trained but the food is best described as "dog food". I ordered the "fish and chips" which was overcooked, frozen fish that should have been discarded two days before my visit. My guest ordered the "veggie burger" which was a pile of brown tasteless "mush" that wasn't edible but was recommended by our server(the bartender). All this on top of dirty silverware!! Hopefully this place will close soon so another operator can make use of this location.

We ate here after a college track meet. The service was excellent, staff was very friendly, and food was excellent. Wonderful atmosphere.

Moved to Birmingham in 1993. Silvertron Cafe was the place to go back then! It had signature plates and great service. Over the years the service and food had declined, but my visit last week proved that the Silvertron Cafe is back better than ever! The neighborhood is kewl, the food is fabulous and the service top notch! The owner even came over to check on us as well!

The food was incredible, I highly recommend the Carnitas Tacos, the pork was juicy and the sauce has an amazing sweet chili taste. The mac & cheese had an incredible savory flavour to it, i wish I had the recipe! You'll definitely walk away with a take away box!
