Where to park — easier than you think:

Most people who don’t come Downtown frequently think (a) it’s scary to drive down here (we’ll give you that one) and (b) it’s hard to find parking (we object to this one, though). It’s actually easier to find parking in Downtown than in Midtown because of all the lovely garages here. In fact, we have one right across the street!

There are two parking garages within one block of us:

Capitol Garage: Entrance from L & 10th Streets. If you find a spot closer to the opposite of where you entered, you can exit the elevator into Gallegos Square and walk across the street to Cathedral Square, where we are. You’ll see our big ‘ol sign on the exterior of the MAY Building. We also validate parking from this garage.

City Hall GarageEntrance on 10th Street. Once you park, cross over 11th & J Streets into Cathedral Square. We also validate from this garage.

Easy, right?

Street Parking

Check Sacramento metered street parking if you’re wanting to not park in the garage.

Light Rail

Light rail actually lets off very near the cafe on K Street — west-bound in front of Capital Books, and east-bound across the street from the cafe.


You’ll be able to safely lock up your bicycle to our ramp railing in front of the cafe.
