Café California was, until May, 2012, for me, a place to take guests and friends. But back in May, I ordered the tuna steak and it was tough, stringy, noisier, and a little pricey, but a less pretentious atmosphere.
I really enjoy the menu and the staff at Cafe California. The staff goes out of their way to please the customers. I have a couple of food sensitivities, which means they have to prepare my meal different than anyone else's, and that is the way they prepare them.
I also found out that if I want something that is totally different than anything on their menu, they will ALWAYS do it for me.
The staff is cheerful, and always attentive.
