My husband and I stayed at the Best Western hotel and the City Cafe was inside the hotel. We had two evening meals that were very good. We had wings, fries, carrots and celery the first night. Then the open faced turkey sandwich and a cheeseburger the next night. We could have shared the meals. Very large portions. We ordered... More

Good food. Horrible service. Dark and outdated. Their desserts are good but the price of the whole cake will leave your wallet pretty empty. A single slice is big enough for 2 or 3 people to share.

The title says it all. They are open round the clock and always busy. They are attached to the hotel and it is great to have a hot meal when you check in to the hotel late at night.

We had such a good experience the last time we drove through Chattanooga that we thought we would try it again -- and wound up stopping at it both going to a reunion in Virginia and coming home. We are both still amazed at how extensive their menu is -- and how good the food is. Both times I had... More

This is a 24 hour diner located close to a hotel, with parking close by and huge inside. We had a typical American breakfast with eggs, home fries, pancakes and coffee. Service was quick and courteous, price was good.

Visited the Diner on a Sunday afternoon for a late lunch. Our server greeted us with a friendly smile and seated us right away. My husband ordered a tuna melt and I had the chicken salad. Sandwiches come with a pickle, small coleslaw, and choice of a side. The food was served quickly and was delicious. Desserts looked amazing but... More

We recently stopped here somewhat late on a Sunday night because we were limited on options in the area. Although I have not had a lot of positive dining experiences with restaurants attached to hotels, this was definitely an exception, and I will stop here again. Their menu provided so many options that it was a little tough to choose,... More

Early morning or late night a NYC style dining experience awaits you. The desserts are yummily displayed as you walk in the door and the diner can choose breakfast 24/7 or a light lunch or varied dinners. I lovr the Greek choices and the salads are fresh and tasty. Parking is free and plentiful at both locations and the coffee... More
