We have been to the Dream Cafe about seven times now in the past two years and it has yet to disappoint. The entertainment is exceptional. The venue is very quaint, and homey with funky decor. The menu has changed over time and although they have always had good food, it is now even better with a tapas menu. Service... More

First time at the cafe and had a great experience watching two of the best guitar players you are ever likely to see. Pagat and Garcia were fabulous and clearly having fun entertaining a full house. Did I mention the food (tapas) and service was great and reasonably priced? If you appreciate good music, this place is for you.

The Dream Cafe lives up to its name. Amazing atmosphere, entertainment and food. This is a great room to sit back in and enjoy the show. If you are looking for live entertainment ... look no further... it doesn't get any better than this!

Lived here since 1984, first ever visit and that's a shame. An intimate and exciting venue, fantastic entertainment and wicked good food. Would more than highly recommend the cafe fora romantic visit or a group outing.

I have shared so many memorable moments here with friends. The music is always amazing and it truly is an opportunity to become acquainted with so many different genres of music. Truly a must on any visit.

My boyfriend and I went here because I god a groupon. The sandwich was excellent and the salad it came with was even better! Love the live entertainment! Unfortunately the waitress seemed disinterested in her job and like she didn't want to be there.

The Dream Cafe is wonderful! The food we had was excellent and there are were also several vegetarian options for a friend. I recommend lunch there for one of their great salads and a glass of wine. It was a great place to be laid back and chat. It is full of atmosphere from the flying paper dragons and paper... More

Always such an amazing venue for music and shows, but I often forgot how great the food was. Had a Vietnamese wrap which was so amazing I have been craving it ever since. But now it's closed. So sad I probably contributed to the demise as I often forgot to go there because it was great.
