Outdoor dining continues to improve in Sacramento, but the leafy green ambiance of Tower is still my favorite. Food is moderately priced and a good value.

Lunch with friends. Tuna Melt is always great. Love the atmosphere, but if outside, don't sit close to waiters station. Smelled like pesticides and bad food.

There is lots of parking behind the movie theatre adjacent to the Tower Cafe. I don’t know about gluten free, but check their website I believe they have the menu posted.
