Cafe du Jour is a fairly small place on the 'burgh's busy Southside. We went after the 5:30 show at the City Theater. It's BYO, but they charge by the "stem", not the bottle. Entree menu, which we did not try, is fairly limited. The...More

Appetizers and entrees were excellent and the portions are large, The entree comes with a kind of baked half potato that;s really good.. Service was good and the ambiance on the back patio, which isn't immediately noticeable, was very cozy.

What a treasure! To dine outside in a shaded courtyard garden beside a pond with resident turtles and cool repurposed art. It's a BYOB restaurant so we brought our chilled Prosecco to sip while we waited for our delicious meal. The wild mushroom consomme and...More

It looks like the lunch counter in an old time drug store, but the food that comes out is amazing! We started with the fennel meatballs and the bruschetta. Both were yummy and enough to split up among the 4 of us. The duck comfit...More

This tiny BYO and cash only spot is still serving up some very very good dinners. Service was excellent, and we finished off the last of the braised short rib dish, had duck confit, and Moroccan lamb for the main entrees. Friendly service and you...More

Whenever approaching Cafe du Jour, you are surprised at the lack of "image" but the food more than makes up for the ambiance. This is a great, great choice before a show at The City Theater. The Cafe is within easy walking distance and the...More
