We went to this place to have some breakfast. It was the end of may so it was starting to get really warm so we decided to sit on their little patio outside. The bagels are to die for. Everything was just amazing. Definitely try this place.

We have LOVED City Cafe Bakery for years. We usually go to the Cambridge location or the original one on West Ave. Their newest location at Bridgeport/Lancaster is a big disappointment though. The crust of their pizza is VERY different - and not in a good way - from their pizza at any other location. Consider yourself duly warned. The bagels, tarts and brownies all seemed comparable to other locations. It was a nice clean space if that is more important to you than good crust. And the $6.50 for a slice seems a bit pricey - and maybe more than at other locations?? Not sure about that. Don't quote me on that! :)

We have been searching artisinal products all over the city, province and just about anywhere you can find them. KW probably has one of the best selection of bakeries anywhere and the City Cafe is among the leaders. The multi-grain and specialty breads as well as a broad range of exception products will make it a mainstay for many years to come.

City Cafe is a long-standing Saturday-morning tradition for many a K-Wite, and rightfully so... their bakery is top-notch and their 'honour system' of payment is legendary. What is setting them over the top in gastronomical delight these days, though, is their Chicken Pesto pizza. So glad for their latest location at Bridgeport/Lancaster in Kitchener... likely their best location in the bunch! The perfect lunch = chicken pesto pizza, rhubarb tart, and a cuppa java from City Cafe!

I really like this bakery, cafe! They have great bread, bagels, the best croissant in town, amazing pecan tart, butter tart, brownie, date square . there is nothing there that I did not like. Their pizza is so great specially; tuna melt tastes yummy.
Most important of all, you pay by putting the money in the box! it is amazing how much they trust people! Admirable.
