When walking down 5th in the Gaslamp one could be overwhelmed by the sheer number of tourist trap restaurants and their outdoor hosts trying to lure bypassers inside. One place not to sidestep on this treck is Cafe 21. Very nicely appionted with a farmhouse meets city ambiance, they have indoor and outdoor seating for those looking to escape or be seen and see. What truly set this place apart though is the quality of the food and the service. Who does not like breakfast for breakfast, lunch and dinner? We visited for lunch and were warmly welcomed, expertly serviced in a timely manner for a business lunch and were extremely satisfied with a great meal and experience.
In a world that cares more about the experience than the product, Cafe 21 delivers. Be sure to say hi to the gregarious and charming GM, Jason. A man of many talents and many more responsibilities, he is as affable as they come and adds to the experience in his table side greets and well-wishes. Head in for a birthday and get ready for some serious attention!
Thank you and we will be back!
