Our daughter lives in Chattanooga and knows the local eateries well. She took us here for breakfast and we really liked it. Very generous portions, prompt and attentive staff, and reasonable prices. Recently remodeled. Atmosphere is kind of retro. Will go back.

This place is so good, I plan my trips around being able to eat lunch or dinner here. Fabulous food, extensive menu, out of this world desserts, helpful staff. Easy to find - and yes, this is attached to a hotel. I can't recommend this...More
