I recently joined a friend at Cafeteria 15L in Downtown Sacramento for Happy Hour (Monday – Friday 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.). We had a very enjoyable time catching up on the latest news and what was going on in our lives.
Cafeteria 15L has a popular Happy Hour and there is a very good reason. The generous-sized “small plates” are clearly a major attraction. Tip: Happy Hour service is offered exclusively in the bar and lounge so it is a good idea to get there sooner than later.
Cafeteria 15L is lively and bright – with a modern utilitarian décor. There are two outdoor patios, a comfortable lounge, and private and semi-private dining in addition to the main dining room. The food is casual comfort food.
At Happy Hour well drinks are $5, Wine is $6, and Specialty Cocktails are $7.

It is always a good idea to eat something when drinking so we settled on two small plates to enjoy with our wine – the BBQ pulled pork sliders ($6) (slow cooked BBQ pulled pork, coleslaw, Hawaiian bread, pickled onion) and the Spicy Ahi Tune Poke ($7) (ahi tuna, avocado, orange and radish sprouts) served with won ton chips.
Based on previous Happy Hour visits I can also recommend the peach and tomato bruschetta ($5) (grilled bread, whipped goat cheese, basin and reduced balsamic), the Shrimp Haystack ($7) (shrimp, garlic butter sauce, shoestring potatoes, egg yolk), and the Trio of Fries ($6) (garlic, sweet potato, and BBQ with dipping sauces). I don’t eat fries often – so when I do they had better be “awesome” and these are.
I have always found the staff at Cafeteria 15L to be attentive, which always makes for a pleasant experience.
What is your favorite dish at Cafeteria 15L – brunch, lunch, dinner, or happy hour?
