“Nice place to dine in Manassas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

We had the chance to eat out on the patio a couple of weeks ago. The train comes through occasionally with a loud whistle but it did not negatively influence our meal. Kind of charming in fact. Nice music was provided. We were not rushed. Our meals were good but not great. The ceaser salad was lacking croutons. Menu choices are creative and different than the standard fare. The house white wines are very good. The fried dough balls rolled in cinnamon and sugar were awesome. Susanna and Robert are wonderful hosts making you feel like family. Alittle pricey for what you get but still a wonderful meal.

Excellent food. Very reasonable prices. Very good service. Enjoyed opportunity to dine outdoors in the patio area. Would not hesitate to return again.

“Best restaurant for outdoor dining!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

City Square Cafe is a fantastic locally owned restaurant in Old Town Manassas. Susanna and Robert (the owners) are always there and will remember you and make you feel welcome every time. Tapas are delicious here and the sangria is hand made by Robert and dangerously delicious!

“Cozy restaurant in Old Town Manassas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

City Square Cafe was one of the first restaurants I ate at when I moved to Manassas in January, 2011. They have a nice luncheon menu and the staff is very accommodating.

Ate here on the way through and was thoroughly impressed. I had the crab cake BLT with homemade chips. Great meal for lunch.
