Where to Go

The Café Car is generally located on the upper level in the middle of the train, though some trains may have a lower-level Café Car. If you’re on a train with a lower-level Café Car, look for “California Café” signs near the stairwell.

Bringing Food and Beverages On-Board

You may bring your own food on-board and consume it at your seat. However, per health and safety regulations, preparation and consumption of personal food is not permitted in the Café Car. Alcoholic beverages may be consumed on-board only if purchased in the Café Car. Consumption of personal alcohol is not permitted on-board.

Capitol Corridor Food and Beverage Policies

We ask that you please be mindful of the following Capitol Corridor food and beverage policies:

  • You are welcome to bring your own food onboard; however, you cannot consume your food in the Café Car.
  • Amtrak staff cannot heat up or prepare any food you bring onboard. The food preparation equipment in the Café Car can only be used for food purchased onboard our trains.
  • Amtrak prohibits passengers from bringing alcohol aboard trains for consumption purposes. Alcoholic beverages may be consumed onboard ONLY if purchased in the Café Car.
  • Please also note that the purchase of discounted BART tickets from the Café Car is limited to one (1) BART ticket per ticketed passenger. Passengers may be asked to show Café Car attendant ticket stubs.

Please note: Effective June 20, 2016, the Capitol Corridor will suspend Café Car service on two weekday evening trains – Train 548 and Train 549. Train 548 provides service from Oakland Coliseum to Sacramento, departing Oakland at 9:55pm. Train 549 provides service between Sacramento and Oakland Coliseum, departing Sacramento at 6:50pm. This change is required to reduce costs associated with providing food service on certain off peak trains.
