Don't let the name fool you. Just because the word "cafeteria" is in its name doesn't mean that you'll be standing behind a group of diners holding a sectioned plastic tray. And this ain't no dining hall reminiscent of the old high school multi or the summer camp mess. In fact, Cafeteria 15L (and that is one-five-"L" and not fifteen "L") is one of Sacramento's newest dining attractions that provides simple, down home fare. What do I mean by simple? Try doing away with a children's menu, but still leaving the little ones happy with such favorites as Patty Melt Sliders, Spaghetti and Meatballs, Grilled Cheese with Tomato Soup, and Tater Tots like no other. For the adults, they're serving up Crab Beignets, Pan Seared Trout, Grilled Prime Rib, and a selection of daily Blue Plate Specials (my recommendation, Sunday's BBQ Baby Back Ribs).
Needless to say, we were quickly won over by the food, the staff, and an atmosphere that promotes comfort and good times. Heck, when was the last time you walked into a restaurant that shared its space with a popular night spot? That's right, Cafeteria 15L room-mates with the uber-hip Park Ultra Lounge with its outdoor patio, a bar fit for kings, and dancing rooms. Oh, there's also THE BATHROOM which gives new meaning to "shock and awe." So, trust me when I say, Cafeteria 15L is not to be missed.
