Great Food Selection...YUMMY CAKES!

We went to this restaurant based on the recommendations of a friend. I was sold as soon as she sent me a link to their cake menu. It is extensive! We went to the location that is attached to a hotel. We were a little leery at first, but it was ok. It does have a diner feel inside. The... read more

So I took him to the City Cafe Dinner because you have so many choices of what to eat and the food is very good here...they also give you large... More

If you can't find something on this menu to your liking, you're not hungry. Lengthy, diverse menu. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert all rolled into one. Desserts look amazing! My Greek salad was very good. Service was good. Prices were reasonable.

Currently staying in the Best Western connected to this diner. I'm happily surprised with this place. First off, it's very convenient. Secondly, the food is reallyyy good. Thirdly, they have something for everyone..no matter how picky someone in your party may be. Another plus is, they serve breakfast all day. And the breakfast isn't just the usual eggs, biscuits, pancakes,... More

We visited simply because we were staying in the adjacent hotel. We were expecting mediocre food & service but were pleasantly surprised. Their menu was exceptional and the food was delicious. They were very accommodating with the infant we had with us (brought diluted juice, brought lukewarm water to mix cereal, etc). Also very reasonable prices. The only reason I... More

Bountiful portions, delicious meal, friendly service = good choice for dinner. We hoped to save room for their famous cake, but the Greek food was too good and too plentiful, even sharing it. We may just have to make a midnight run back for the cheesecake.

Went to the City Cafe tonight for dinner while passing through. Food was great, prices were fair, and portions were huge. I could have easily split my quesadilla with someone else and still been full. Meal came with all the fixings and no extra charge. Staff was attentive, polite, and effecient. Menu was large and varied, and diner is open... More
