Loved the casualness of the place. The patio was the perfect place to catch-up with friends. Great cocktails and good food. Good vegetarian options. Very friendly staff.

Next to the grand old Tower Theatre, Tower Cafe is quirky restaurant, eclectic yet classy. The patio is gorgeous with trees and flowers and Zen sculptures. We enjoyed breakfast inside, where service was attentive but food prep was a bit slow. Bloody Mary's and Mimomas...More
