Housed inside one of the city’s most prominent land-marks, Tower Cafe lives up to its location. The Tower Theatre’s neon spire looms over a verdant, palm tree-topped outdoor dining area. Inside is a virtual museum of Asian and African tapestries and assorted artwork. The equally eclectic menu spans the globe as well, from the popular Jamaican jerk chicken to the Santa Fe salmon with a roasted bell pepper and mango sauce. But at brunch, the fabled French toast rules. Tower soaks French bread in vanilla custard overnight, and cooks it up so it’s crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside. The dish is so popular, it’s now served weekdays until 3 p.m. except on Monday and Tuesday when it’s served all day. The cafe also boasts one of the best dessert counters in the city.
