We went to the Lee Hwy, cafe, the food was ok not great. They serve large portions. 4 soft drinks cost about 9$. Food was average . Our cheesecake was wonderful! This cafe seems to be a landmark in the area!

Good menu and attentive staff. Place was full but they showed us to the waiting area. Within 10 minutes we were seated. Gravy was good and pancakes were excellent. They also have cakes on display and for sale. The twirling case of death calls to you with every bite of your meal. I would eat here again.

We ordered our late night dinner to be delivered to our room and it was so good that we went there for breakfast the next day. The owner answers the phone and also seats everyone. Very nice guy. The food portions are huge so you may want to split a plate with someone. It is located on the outside of... More

We went in around 10 pm for dessert. Wow and more wow! Choices galore and all 4 of us had something different - all excellent! The next time we are in town, we will definitely try the food. Huge menu and the plates looked great!!!

First all everyone I know raves about this place, so I had to see for myself. I can honestly say I was not ready for the mind boggling assortment of cakes, pies, cookies, brownies and every other sweet you could think of. The portions of food you get is unreal so bring your appetite. This place is a definite must... More

We drove a few miles to the City Cafe when we couldn't get into the room for the included breakfast room at the Homewood Suites Hamilton Place. The breakfast here was delicious and filling. The waitress was very helpful and accommodating. Would definitely return.

What generous portions of finger licking good food! Oh and save room for the carrot cake. You'll need a small army to help you finish it off.

We stopped here for breakfast on a Sunday morning during a weekend trip to Chattanooga. We were not particularly impressed with the place. Despite not being very busy at the time we went, service was pretty slow. It was a typical diner with a huge menu, and all of the options you would expect. Prices were reasonable. Corned beef hash...
