This was the second time we ate here. It was better than the first, but still not great. They have redecorated with a French theme which gives it a nice ambiance.

Took the family there for dinner a couple of weeks ago. Mashed potatoes had no taste and must have been instant. The black eyed peas were bland. Meatloaf was buried in tomatoes and was flavorless. Been going there for over 10 years and it used...More

What's a "meat & 3" you might ask? It's a Southern home cooked meal served cafeteria style and City Cafe is the best in Nashville. There's a different menu each day and everything is made from scratch delicious. City Cafe is open for breakfast, lunch,...More
