Our group had breakfast and dessert here for several days. Good food and definitely a people watching place. Great servers also.

This café is in the hotel we stayed at and its very good food but beware there's lots of it. No small portions here so be hungry or share. Very good food and service. Friendly staff

Great diner experience. Breakfast is good and the cake box is enticing! Good menu with lots of choices and the waitress was very accommodating. Worth a stop for cake, pie or breakfast. The take out coffee was huge!

We were looking for a place for dessert later in the evening and the hotel staff suggested we try the City Cafe Diner. It was about 8 blocks from our hotel and it was well worth the walk. When we walked in the door it was very busy. We told the gentleman at the counter we just wanted desert and... More

Brought my daughter to Chattanooga for a business/fun combo trip and we always stop here. I ate my usual Turkey Club and got a slice of "Chocolate Sin" cake. Seven layers high, seven different layers of different chocolate. I could die now as I have tasted heaven on earth! Today presented some challenges in getting our cake to go. Hot,... More

The Staff at our hotel pointed us to this little dinner when we asked about somewhere to go at night that was fairly close and had good dessert. City Cafe is along side a hotel in the downtown area. Parking is almost nonexistent at night with every one at the hotel. Still from the outside we didn't think too much... More

This restaurant is great. Runs seven days a week 24 hours. The food is exceptional. Very large portions. Great service with a smile. Really enjoyed. Their cakes are to die for. Attached to the Days Inn. across from the Sheraton. A must when you are in Chattanooga.

Every time I go the food is fresh, good and lots of it. You may want to look at the tables around you being served, because you may prefer to share. Large portions. Huge variety of delicious desserts. Just looking at all the desserts they have on display is a treat. Prices are reasonable. The restaurant has the feel of... More

It's just a diner setting, but the food and value were both tremendous, as was the service. The pastries were amazing!

I ate several meals here and the service is great with a real family attitude from the servers. The Norwegian salmon and stuffed flounder florentine were very good with huge portions of everything. The Greek dishes are good with my favorite being the Spanakopita (spinach pie). I'm not a big dessert eater, but if you are, I've never seen a... More
