We got here right at 10 am and were seated quickly. The food was very good - interesting combinations of things well-prepared. The staff was nice and knowledgeable. The restaurant is tiny, so there were lots of people waiting outside for tables. It is not a place that is comfortable to linger , knowing that so many people were waiting... More

Phenomenal food. Bottomless hot coffee, great atmosphere, cool decor, and cozy, at-home feel. There's only 9 or 10 tables and they fill up within 10-minutes of the place opening, so get there a minute or two early to snag a spot for breakfast. I had an eggy, goat cheese sandwich which was unreal, as well as another egg dish with... More

Dinner at City Girl Cafe this week. Waitresses were dour and rude. Food was too salty. We had to ask for bread and it was given begrudgingly. No sink in the bathroom. Had to ask for that too, and a nearby sink was offered again begrudgingly. $75 or so bill for two, for all this.

I went here for brunch with some friends. The food was delicious. The portions are manageable. Not huge. Perfect amount to fill you up, but prevent you from overeating. Their potatoes are delicious! I'll definitely order an extra side of potatoes next time! :) City Girl is pretty small. If you come here for brunch, be prepared to come really... More

City Girl's brunch is to die for. It's really hard to get a table, though, because the place is so small. Expect to wait quite a while, and don't go with a party larger than 2 people. I love the verde omelette, which has pesto and other delicious things. Their roast potatoes are amazing and crispy and perfect. The portion... More

I went to City Girl on New Years Day with three friends. This was my first time there and I was not disappointed. I had the kale caesar salad which was fabulous, and I had the sesame bagel with lox...and some special kind of cream cheese. The bagel seemed to be an Iggy's bagel and was delish! Others in my...

Absolutely try brunch here. The prices are unbelievable and the food is to die for. They don't take reservations and is always a wait, but it's worth it. Dinner here is also very good.

Loved the food and the place is nice, but a little small. We visited in the winter and cold air was coming in through the door.

As residents of Somerville, close to Cambridge, my husband and I adore this place. The sandwiches, soups, and pizza are always super delicious and it's such a cozy, warm vibe. Perfect for brunch, lunch, or dinner - this is our favorite Inman Square joint.

Excellent Italian food. Limited wine list. Space is quite tiny. Takeout an option. A favorite in the hood.
