Although we didn't sample a full meal here, everything looked delicious. It's definitely a popular spot! Twice I enjoyed take out lattes and the daily scone (lemon poppyseed or cranberry orange). Excellent!!!

Stop here for afternoon sweets and coffee. Ice tea for me. Wife said the coffee is very good. Great selection of desserts. Reasonably priced. Service is good. Sit outside. Just downtown.

City cafe's breakfast sandwiches were fantastic. I had the farmers sausage with egg and cheese on focaccio which had an incredible onion relish. The avocado toast also looked very tasty-enjoy!

Almost everything in this bakery begs to be eaten. The bread is off the charts fresh, full and delicious. The pastries are fantastic and will serve as a great reward.

Breakfast is good, breads/bagels, etc all reasonable and good, but nothing out of ordinary to identify 'signature' speciality, all expected. They also serve variety of sandwiched during lunch.

We eat here about once a month when we’re downtown. We almost always get The Hawaiian sandwich and have never been disappointed... until today. Our sandwiches were cold. There was no aioli spread. The avocado was mashed instead of sliced. Ugh. Just glad we didn’t...More

There are outside tables on the sidewalk -- I don't think there would be a problem with pets there.
