“Good food, weird service?”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

We stopped here for lunch while in town visiting stone mountain on a recommendation from the woman at the front desk of our hotel. The food was very good and there was plenty of it. The service was definitely lacking something. We were seated by a woman right away, but then no one came to our table for quite a while. When someone did come over it was a man, I'm thinking the owner, and he should not be waiting on customers, he doesn't have the temperament for it. I would understand if they were crowded, but there were only a few other tables and ours. All in all the food was good and it's close to the country inn and suites and stone mountain. We'd probably go here again.

“Great breakfast!”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We ate breakfast here on the way to Stone Mountain Golf Course and it was delicious. The owner was friendly and the restaurant is very clean! The location to get back on the road is a little confusing if you aren't from here, but it's worth the effort to eat at this diner!

“The Best of Stone Mountain”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We dined here twice on a recent trip to the area, and were pleased with both meals. The portions are hearty. The food, while not the absolute best, is good. For the price, you can't beat it.
The server on our first visit was exemplary; she was friendly and efficient. Our second server, while good, was a little disconnected. She was obviously not a multi-tasker, but was quite adequate.
A note of advice, though:
If you are staying in the park (at one of the Marriott properties) and dine here, especially after dark, don't try to get straight back onto Stone Mountain highway to return to your hotel. It's nearly impossible and very dangerous to get across to the left-hand exit from the on-ramp. Take a few extra minutes and loop back onto the highway from its intersection with East Park Place Boulevard.

“Nice Variety to choose from”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

While in Stone Mountain, we were looking a good place to go for dinner. So we did what we always do when were out of town. Go to Trip Advisor and check out the reviews !! After reading numerous positive reviews about Metro Cafe, we decided to check it out. We both got a Melt, I got the Homemade Meatloaf Melt and my wife got the Turkey Melt, Both were good. We wanted to save room for dessert, because when you walk in to Metro Cafe you walk right to the Dessert display. Everything look so good and the cakes were huge. We decided to share a slice of cake, glad we did because when it came to the table, it was one BIG slice of cake and no we were not able to finish it. If you're in the Stone Mountain area, Metro Cafe is worth checking out.

“Save room for dessert!”
Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

Hubby and I ordered the onion rings because of a review that raved over them. They were good but, I've had better (come to Mobile, AL and order some at Dick Russell's. Now that's some good onion rings!) They were beer batter style, if you like that kind of thing ;-) We shared a cheeseburger, super good French fries and ordered the Volcano cake. It wasn't on the menu but the owner (taking all the time I needed...so sweet!) gave me the rundown on all the cakes and there were only a few slices left of this Volcano cake. I thought, well, everyone else liked it. Oh my! It was yummy! Layer of brownie-like nutty fudge, layer of chocolate cake, layer of New York style cheesecake, another layer of chocolate cake, another slice of fudgy brownie and icing!!! So good! Also, coffee was great! Don't know what anyone could complain about! Service was great! Make sure you save room for dessert! Or bring home/back to your hotel!
