The desserts were ALL incredible! The cake portions are huge! So save room or get it to go, like we did. We didn’t try the food, but it looked really good.

This is a 50's style diner/restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is open 24 hrs a day. The portions are huge and the desserts are even bigger! Recommend sharing dessert.

My grandson wanted to eat here for his birthday. My first time. We both got nachos and had left overs. We split a piece of coconut cake that was very good.

City Cafe is delicious whether you want breakfast or dinner. They also have yummy cakes and cheesecakes. So many flavors to choose from. The downtown location is usually more crowded than the one off of I75 but I frequent them both.

Must be some confusion. City Cafe diner is a great diner. However, we stayed about a block away at the Marriott Downtown and they have both an indoor and outdoor pool. A wonderful hotel!
