Tower Cafe Restaurant Review

: With its kitschy décor, inviting tropical patio and globally-influenced menu, Tower Café has remained a staple of the Sacramento dining scene for more than two decades. The interior is loaded with artwork and handicrafts from around the globe, while the outdoor patio is a cool oasis in the heart of the city. Dinner features a number of small plates drawn from every continent. Starters include Thai-glazed chicken wings and a pulled pork chimichanga; sandwiches range from the jerk chicken version to an East African veggie burger; and mains include red curry chicken and Santa Fe salmon. Tower Café’s weekend brunch features specials such as custard-soaked french toast and Oaxacan eggs mole. Be sure to indulge your sweet tooth with a variety of house-made tarts, pies, cookies and cakes.
