Friendly service and good freshly prepared food. Soups and salads are great! Breakfast is a little pricy.

I ordered the polenta topped with marinara and mushrooms and Brussels sprouts. My husband ordered the quesadilla and was happy they were out of pork and substituted... More

Salads with wilted lettuce are the norm here....wet pizzeta....whatever that is supposed to be isn't pizza by any means. This is a loser location.

This Paraguay-owned restaurant has been remodeled. If possible, request a table in the interior courtyard setting. It is quite a nice atmosphere in which to enjoy well-prepared meals.

We usually go to Cafe Bernardo in Pavilions, but our friends wanted to try the one in midtown...big mistake. First off, don't plan on eating outside because the bar next door allows smoking outside and the foul odor invariably drifts over to the restaurant seating area. We ordered one of their pizzetas and a side salad...both very disappointing. The salad... More

This Sactown Cafe has been a destination place to have a filling meal that is fresh and satisfying. It does have a high noise level.

My wife and I had the best salad and best sandwich we've had in a very long time. First time for me and will surely be back again.

Just had lunch there with my wife. She had a habenero burger with sweet potato fries and I had a Vietnamese sandwich with regular fries. Both were okay. Nothing special but not bad. Both orders of fries were good. Ambience too was just fair. Prices were high for what you got.

In the spirit of the neighborhood European café, the Bernardo menu changes with the season. Salads, soups, daily breads, sandwiches, pizzettas, and burgers compliment entrees of fresh fish, steak and chicken, making Bernardo a healthy dinner house with café prices. Lunch and dinner dishes reflect the bounty of local ingredients and the certified green kitchen in which they are created.
