Tower Cafe

An absolute area fave
Tucked next to the historic Tower Theatre, Tower Cafe has a huge, delicious menu to satisfy both a pre or post-movie hunger. The weekend brunch rush regularly leaves diners with waits hovering around an hour, but the french toast alone is worth it.


    • popular cafe with the tourists
      This caf is named after the first Tower Records store which used to operate from across the street. Its PACKED on weekends mostly with tourists. Food is good and portions large enough, atmosphere is mostly straight but gay friendly (most of the staff is gay). The large outdoor patio is nicely shaded with large trees overhead (it reminded me why sactown is called the city of trees). There is a large parking lot in the back, but it fills up quickly as the line starts to back up for nearly an hour long wait time.
