1518 Broadway (at 16th St)
Sacramento, CA 95818
Right near the Tower Theater on Broadway, this restaurant and bakery is truly globally inspired. The breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus feature specialities from all over the world, from chimichangas and Thai green curry to fish & chips and jerk chicken. The restaurant's signature is French toast, dipped in house-made custard and topped with whipped butter. It tastes great on its own at breakfast, but pretty excellent when used as the base of a Monte Cristo sandwich at lunch. Tower's eclectic interior sets it apart from nearby restaurants, but the canopy of Japanese maples, ferns, and palms on the patio is what makes it one of the best outdoor dining spots in Sacramento.
