I stopped in here for a quick bite while in town to watch the Tour of California. Even though it was Mother's Day, the place only had a few tables with maybe 15 other people seated at them altogether. I ordered corn cakes and OJ. The juice came right away, lukewarm and obviously not close to fresh. After a 20... More

Positives- generous portions, excellent French fries. Negatives - several of our entrees were pretty poor, and were not what was implied on the menu. The place is unbelievably noisy. Our waitress was terrible.

Had excellent service, food and drinks here!!! Many awesome vegan options to choose from. We went back the next night just for a few drinks and ended up getting dessert as well - so many delicious homemade items to choose from! Highly recommend!

This is simply great food, unpretentious and delicious, there is a wide variety of choice, and the quality is not lacking, the crispy potatoe, is spot on, and this is u.s. food at its best from a cafe, you will not go wrong here, Hope this has been of some help for you...

The service was really excellent and the California and Cowboy burgers were delicious. Our table of 7 also devoured the mushroom-grilled cheese. Excellent, I'd recommend. The hamburger was thick and plentiful but light and not too heavy. Excellent.

We were having breakfast before attending a conference. The portion sizes were enormous and the menu was varied. Don't go here if you want a lot of traditional breakfast offerings. Do go here if you want something a little different. Both burrito's were tried by our group and well received. Great ambience, loved the artwork in the place.

So the service was a little slow when we were there but I will say it looked as though they were short staffed. The bartender was very knowledgeable, and there is a great selection. I would give it another try. I can't speak to the food as we only ordered drinks.

Very nice Sunday brunch! We were here with family and no one left hungry! Street parking is tough to find and they do not validate parking. Food is very good not bad for a get together but very noisy! We would return for the good food!

My wife and I noticed this little gem of a bar/grill while we were walking around (freezing) downtown Sacramento looking for a place to hang out for a bit on Christmas Eve! While we didn't eat, we did notice the folks eating around us, and everything looked great. What we did do, was sample some of the local craft beers... More

During our visit to Sacramento we had the opportunity to visit Capital Garage for an evening meal before departing. While not what I would call a restaurant, but rather a pub that serves food, the food here was well prepared, well proportioned and very tasty. I really enjoyed my Toasted Cheese Sandwich that had roasted red peppers and mushrooms in... More
