Nice for Lunch

The soups are very tasty. A featured soup of the day and two soups available everyday. I go especially for the creamy french onion server with two slices of cheese bread on top. Very friendly staff.

The food, service, and atmosphere are all very good here. My only complaint is the cost is bit more expensive for the soup and sandwich that we had. The quality was very good though.

I have gone to several of the locally owned City Markets and recently had them cater a company event. I worked with the owner directly for the event and she took great care to make sure that I was satisied with the food. The restaurants are clean, staff is friendly and the food is delicious, breakfast or lunch. I would... More

I have always enjoyed City Market's food but haven't eaten there in awhile. I ate there yesterday and found their prices had greatly increased. I paid $11.00 for a Cobb salad which was very good but not worth the price. It had a great deal of lettuce and was missing some of the standard ingredients like blue cheese and avocado.... More

It used to be that there were 4 servers behind the counter all sort of doing...not much. I've noticed some new faces and a big change lately, friendly, eye to eye service, they recognize me as a return customer (I like that) and the baked goods are better than Alterra (this cinammon scone is one of my faves and I...

Very good food - the only interaction with the staff is when you order your food and when they drop bring it to the table. No one checks on you in between. Indoor table and minimal counter seating looking out onto street. Some outdoor seating - on a busy road (North Ave.) I would return again - I was impressed... More

Over-priced and a bit chi chi. The food is fine but nothing special. Some of the bread is good and so is some of the pastry. Can find better in the Village at Le Reve. Go there instead.

We stopped here for a lovely Saturday lunch...we were a mixed group of vegetarians, meat lovers, older people and younger...and all agreed that everything we had was delicious. My husband had the french onion soup and a roast beef sandwich and rated it very good. I had the chicken and butternut squash soup and it was probably the best soup... More

The sandwiches were excellent. The soup left something to be desired. The salad was good enough. It is likely the best lunch spot around the hospital.
