If you are super hungry and don't really care about atmosphere or cleanliness then this is the place to go. Biggest portions of lunch and dinner I have ever seen. Plus every desert option under the sun. The environment is hard to get passed though. They stay busy there so they crammed as many tables and chairs as they possibly... More

If you like a big breakfast this is the place. If you are watching your weight maybe not. Some of the best cakes and pies around, so many to choose from you will find something you like.

Affordbale "home cooked" meals and you won't leave hungry. Every time we ate at City Cafe we had to ask for a to go box so we could finish our meal later at the hotel. The cakes there are beautiful with an array of flavors to satisfy any taste bud.

Very delicious. Nice waitress. Very busy but still quality service. Seemed a little pricey at first but you get a lot of food. Their French toast is the best!

This place is SO good! We were staying at the Days Inn and didn't feel like getting out again to have dinner so we walked down to the diner. Our waitress, Kitty, had a larger than life personality and took very good care of us. She recommended the patty melt (which I paired with onion rings) and holy smokes. It... More
