You get large portions for the price you pay. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The choices on the menu gives even a picky eater something to chose from.

The City Cafe Diner is open 24/7 and that's very cool. And you can apparently get breakfast anytime too, which is great, cause I love pancakes! My wife and I went this weekend in order to get some of their delicious looking cake (they have many on display). However, I ordered breakfast instead of cake, while my wife ordered a... More

We had dinner and breakfast there because it was in our hotel. It was ok. Really noisey and the food although very very large portions, were just ok. Nothing special. But a favorite for familys and bikers it seemed.

Passing through Chattanooga, City Cafe Diner was recommended to us. And what a great one it was. The food is great, portions huge, service fantastic, and really awesome desserts. Worth a stop off the I-75 exit 7.

We had an appointment in the area and wanted something quick, but not fast food. We found The City Cafe Diner via TripAdvisor. It is a diner attached to the Best Western Inn and is open 24/7. We were there early on a Friday morning. The service was friendly and fast. Coffee is good. The atmosphere was a bit dark,... More
