I had heard about the City Cafe from everyone and when I finally got there for a piece of cake, I was not disappointed. The selection was huge and so was my piece of cake. Very awesome

We stopped in for a couple of desserts to go after a lunch elsewhere. The place was crazy busy and the wait was an hour. Wow. We waited for a while for our desserts to be packed up, but they were so worth it! We had a huge slice of oreo cake and mint chocolate chip cake to take back... More

Stayed at the nearby Mariott for 3 days, and ate here for breakfast all 3 days.. Which tells you all you need to know. Omelets were awesome and had so many varieties to choose from. Huge portions. Good prices. Friendly staff. Great cake also. Also had a huge lunch/dinner menu. Highly recommended!

We usually go to the location on Bonny Oaks but happened to be passing thru downtown and have to say this place is just as good as the other location. Huge portions, friendly staff and desserts to rival anyone. Enjoyed our meal and will return if in the downtown area.

I read great reviews and had a friend highly rec City Diner. They had gone for dinner but we went for breakfast on our way to Gburg. The Belgian waffle was amazing and the wheat toast was highly favored. Grits were runny and the potatoes needed to be crispy. I got the fiesta burrito but wish I would had gotten... More

Where do you go to eat Christmas dinner in Chattanooga? The 24/7 City Café Diner. We had about an hour wait, but it was well worth it. We were seated at the counter and kept amused by the staff. They were all very friendly and efficient. The portions were huge, so my husband and I shared a dinner. The food... More

Hubby & I often use an excuse to breakfast here. Great food and great service. Breakfasts are huge, so we always split one between us. Our grown daughter from Indiana states the best meal she has ever had in Chattanooga was lunch at the City Diner! Not a fancy place (hence the title Diner), but really good eats. And DESSERTS!!
