I heard a lot of hype about this place so took a chance. I am not going to say it was a bad choice, but will say average choice. I had a Rubin and it was underwhelming, but okay. Fry's and slaw finished the plate.

I have been to this restaurant third time . They always great you with a big smile. Be careful ordering here cause they serve big portions. After serving the food server came twice to check on us even though restaurant was completely full. Manager came by once to ask if everything is ok. If I had the option to give... More

This reminds me of the sort of Cafe you'd find just off the strip in Vegas. Huge menu and a huge selection of cakes, pies and other desserts. The food was all really good, service was fast and friendly and the cake was great. Go here.

I stopped in based on other reviews and location, and am very glad I did. As a vegetarian it is sometimes hard to find many food choices. There are plenty here. The Greek salad and dolmas are some of the best I've ever had. The staff is extremely friendly. I highly recommend City Cafe Diner!

My family and I recently visited City Cafe on a down to Florida from Chicago. After being stuck in interstate traffic between Nashville and Chattanooga, we arrived in the city after midnight and were tired and famish. Being a Sunday night, almost nothing but a few fast-food joints were open. Fortunately, we found City Cafe and had a great experience.... More

I came to Tennessee to visit my sister and she brought me here for a good breakfast. Unfortunately it was far from that. Waitress was not friendly or attentive. Gravy and biscuits were ice cold as were the pancakes so we sent them back. They came back hot but gravy just tasted like hot milk. I ordered onions in my... More

They have so many cake options it is hard to choose just one. Now a slice of cake is like $7 but you get a huge piece two people can share one piece. So if you have sweet tooth this is a great spot. We go the oreo cake
