Looks like a dive, but the food was really great. A lot of food for the price, and was delicious. Would visit it again, but it is too hard to find and construction in the area makes it even harder The staff was friendly and cordial. Was very satisfied with our first visit.

The server was outstanding! When it seemed we were invisible to the ones behind the counter, we were warmly greeted by the server. The cashiers were ... meh ... seems we continued to be invisible, not asking how our meals were, not even a thank you...

The Mexican entrees we had were huge, authentic and a good value. The machaca was loaded with meat and veggies and well seasoned. We have been several times and the quality is consistent.

Service is great and the food is absolutely outstanding!!!!!! We've ordered so many different items and each one has been wonderful! Only wish they could be open for dinner. I'd go even more often. This one is definitely worth a drive to get to!!!!

From Our Editors

As its name suggests, Capital View Café & Catering showcases a magnificent view of the Minnesota State Capitol building, but it's really the Mexican and American cuisine that keeps regulars coming back. The Ramirez and Lucken family brought the restaurant to life in 1993, after a family friend had tipped them off about a small café full of untapped potential that was in need of new owners. The family relied on many years of experience in the restaurant business to open a friendly neighborhood diner specializing in housemade breakfasts and lunches and generous portions. Capital View Café's breakfast menu includes both American and Mexican mainstays, and the lunch menu ranges from salads, soups, and sandwiches to authentic Mexican lunches. Their Mexican lunch roster catalogs burritos, fajitas, and the chipotle red pork dish, served in a zesty chipotle sauce alongside a stack of warm tortillas, a tastier stack of hot disks than frisbees toasting over a camp fire.
