I love coming to this restaurant with friends for lunch. Outside in the breeze under the Japanese maples. Absolute perfection.

A great place for weekend brunch or anytime you want a cool outdoor dining experience. A culturally diverse menu with a good selection of beers. Be prepared to wait. It is worth it!

This was a true treat to eat here. The atmosphere is really cool, plants, fountains, statues. The service was great and the signature French toast was heavenly. There's no question why this is rated # 1. Well deserved.

The Tower is a staple in Sacramento. Brunch is when it shines, although if you are planning a movie T the old Tower theater next door it's great for dinner too. A table outside is the most coveted. Inside is fine but can feel crowded...More
