Hi,
I saw this flower in front of a cafe in Auburn and was wondering what it is. At first I thought it was a dahlia but I don't think it is.

Dahlia, similar to variety "Wheels" or "Wowie", see dahlias dot com, then use "all dahlias" menu link for an alpabetical listing with images. Your dahlia is on the last page.

If it is a dahlia, what is it's name (variety)?
Thanks.

The varietal name could be Wowie or Wheels, mentioned above. There are several dahlia varieties exhibiting the petal & stamen pattern of your image.

I have been to Swan Island Dahlias several times, but know nothing about the genus/species of these plants. The annual tours there probably start any weekend now.
