Great Food

I was attending a Convention across the street. It was very crowded but they were very efficient in serving as fast and as many as they could. They food and service was very good considering they were swamped with customers. I would eat here again if I am in town. The desserts looked fabulous but... read more

We stopped here out first night in town and enjoyed our meal. We had the philly cheese steak, happy waitress, and our kiddos enjoyed eggs, bacon, fries and toast. The staff is so friendly! We will be back!

You can order just about any type of food you can imagine here and it's all good quality stuff. Their cake is delicious. We had the Reuben and Cuban Reuben, which both were good. The regular Reuben was best. They serve breakfast food all day, so if you're into that, it's available. Overall, decent choice for stopping in for a... More

Great Food and quick service despite them being extremely busy. We're only here for 1 more day, but we will definitely be back. The prices are good and the portions are huge.

I brought my family here on recommendations from friends snd reviews on Trip Advisor. It was a great decision! They have a large selection of menu items to choose from, which is perfect for when no one can agree. The prices were very reasonable, and the portion sizes were huge. I got the Greek chicken on a pita with fries,... More

Over all Great Food and Service from the staff. In the heart of the City. With all walks of life waking in threw the door. A must for a late night stop.

When we arrived in Chattanooga after 10 pm, we were exhausted and hungry. The staff at our hotel suggested we order from City Cafe. They delivered to our hotel. The chicken salad wrap and fries, hamburgers and blueberry pancakes were tasty, warm and great. The price was reasonable and delivery was fast.

If you're looking for a casual place for a good breakfast this is it. The chocolate chocolate chip pancakes were scrumptious. The banana nut ones were amazing. The diner also had an incredible assortment of home made cakes. We were too stuffed to try any but are considering a trip back just for that.

I had absolutely no dislikes. The diner too is an extremely busy place, but extremely clean. Very fun wait staff. Extraordinary food, huge menu with most anything that you could possibly want to eat. Prices were VERY reasonable. Again, just like the hotel, no matter how busy they were, you never felt rushed and got your food hot and in... More
