You have to try at least one meal here to see what great comfort food you can get for a great price. This place is quaint and off the beaten path. Breakfast, lunch and dinner any time. The wait staff will take very good care of you.

It's been a minute since I was here, but I'll never forget it! City Cafe' literally has every single thing on their menu that you could want! Everything is good, too!! The cakes are mile-high, with more layers than I've ever seen.. you gotta try it!

Have been here on every visit to Chattanooga for at least 1 meal. Always a warm greeting, sometimes a wait for a table but worth it for a huge meal at good prices. Menu is HUGE. Greek specialties to burgers to foot-tall pieces of cake. Don't miss it.

The waitress and service was excellent. The breakfast food was overcooked and pancakes a little burned. The method of sitting customers upset some of the people waiting.

We were thankful this very diverse restaurant delivers so late in the evening, as we arrived in town around 10:30 without having dinner! We ordered their nachos and a steak Philly! Both were great! We were impressed the nachos came unconstructed except for the steak and chicken on them. Everything else was in individual containers to build yourself, thus the... More
