I didn't think cakes like they serve at the City Cafe actually existed outside cartoons and Heaven but they do! You should try these awe-inspiring, delicious sweets when you visit. The menu is huge, the prices are affordable, and the food is wonderful. City Cafe is really wonderful!

We decided to eat here because our hotels breakfast was 12.00 a person. Glad we found it. Waitress was a little slow, but food came out quickly. Got bacon, eggs, potatoes, and a biscuit covered in gravy. Would not get the potatoes again. Rest of breakfast was average. If I stay at the Marriott will eat here again for breakfast.

Had breakfast that was very good. Hugh assortment. Cake section is sinful. Reminds me of the diners in NY and NJ.

The inside decor is a little dark and out of date, the wait staff is really slow in taking your order and serving your food, but you're going to get the Largest piece of cake and slice of pie you've ever had! and it's as good as it looks! So if you want to forgo the main course and go... More

My fiancee cornedbeef hash was beyond salty we eat cornedbeef hash a lot but this was like eating mushy salt bricks. We asked for the manager and came... More

My experience from the beginning until I left was bad. We had a long wait to get in, and when we came in the door, we were ushered to a back room. We had called and asked how long the wait was and were told 5 minutes. When we got there, our wait was about 45 minutes. When we were... More

Their deserts are very tasty and extremely large. Two people could eat just one piece of cake. I think their menu has such a wide variety that you can always find something to your liking.

These people have cakes that are unbeatable. That said, the food is a lot for the money but not like it used to be. Stay clear of the breakfast potatoes ( I used to work in restaurants and they are the left over backed potatoes from the night before,they don't even stay together.) If you want a big meal for...

Spent the weekend in Chattanooga for the Ironman contest. We ate at this restaurant every day due to the convenience, quality of food, and the price! Service was prompt and friendly. Food was good with very large portion sizes. This place has over 50 dessert choices! Any type of cake, pie or pasty you can think of. The manager of... More
