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

On a recent business trip to Chattanooga, I discovered this little 24-hour diner while attending a seminar at the nearby Marriott. It was a short walk over for dinner and the following morning, breakfast. I really enjoyed the fast, friendly service, and the food was fresh & really good. They also have a huge selection of pies and cakes that... More

Huge, sweet and fabulous! Always try the coconut cake. The other menu items are very good also but always leave room for dessert.

They were very busy with people waiting in line to get in. No wonder, the food was small town diner quality, great flavor served hot and fresh, by friendly overworked staff. What a find. Don't judge the restaurant by the poor quality of the motel. This one is a real "find" while traveling! Great job to them.

We've eaten at this restaurant several times before, and while there are good and not-so-good things we could say about their menu as a whole, their cakes just can't be beat! I was returning home from an out-of-town trip recently and just stopped by for a take-out of 4 slices of the most delicious Italian Cream Cake my wife and... More

The Lee Highway location is just as good as the original location downtown. The food was great as always and an excellent value. You will not leave hungry and will probably have leftover to take home! Be sure to try a delicious dessert. The cake slices are large enough for 2 or 3 to share. If you haven't' tried City... More

Second time stopping here and great experience once again. While traveling to Florida via I-75 this is a must! Great 24th our breakfast..husband and I each had an omelet and both delicious. Large portions and fresh ingredients. The cakes are the show stoppers however and no meal no matter how large is complete without dessert even if you can't finish... More

My parents moved to Chattanooga recently and we decided to go eat at the Lee Highway location. We were impressed by the dessert cases and the great menu choices. The 24 hour operation is really great and we look forward to Breakfast soon.
