Tower Cafe is a great Sacramento tradition. We always have a good meal here and had a great breakfast recently. The french toast is a must!

Tower is one of my all time favorite breakfast/brunch spots. Everything is delicious. The french toast is a buttery dream! I also love the Madame Cristo and the Huevos Rancheros! This is such a great place for a Sunday brunch. The vibe is fun and the food is great. Sometimes the wait looks overwhelming, but it usually moves along pretty... More

Although there are lines for the Sunday brunch, Tower can be worth the wait. They have indoor or outdoor dinning. Eating outdoors is like being in a green forest and is the most popular seating and will often have a wait list during popular times. Food is excellent with a large variety of options. Their salads (which are huge) are... More

Went for the first time for a breakfast meeting at work. Other than being hard to find the meal and service were very good. Would go back.

This place is more known for their Sunday Brunch menu than the day to day visits. That's not to say that the locals don't enjoy going here to get a bite to eat every day and evening. However, they're are more known for their dipped French Toast than anything else. The decor of the place is some kind of 'jungle'... More

You MUST order the French Toast! It is the most amazing flavor explosion in your mouth that you will ever experience. Order something for breakfast and order the French Toast for dessert.

Tower Cafe is really fun! The cocktails, decor, and general ambiance make it stand out. However, if you go for brunch on the weekend it will be a VERY long wait. Even with reservations, we were waiting for quite a while (maybe 20-30 mins). The food is quite good, and the portions are generous. This is not somewhere I would... More
