I am not into the "meat and 3" cafeteria style food scene, but it is my wife's favorite place to go after church. My kids and I often indulge her. They have a good enough selection that the cafeteria line is tolerable. Can be a bit crowded at lunch time. If you are into Southern style overcooked vegetables and iced... More

The City Café is a great café for couples or groups of 10-12. You enter and go down the café line, choosing your entrees, veggies, salads, etc. Great, southern cooking!

We went around 12:30 on a Wednesday. We were afraid it would be too crowded as it is known to have a large and loyal clientele of business people and it was definitely lunch time. We were pleasantly surprised that there was no line and many tables available. We chose Breaded Pork Chops with green beans, corn and sweet potato... More

Cafeteria Style Meat and Three- lots of variety from salads, vegetables, meat, bread and desserts. Simple southern foods: deviled eggs, salads, fried pork chops, meatloaf, vegetables, corn bread, and pies. I think the food average.

I am part of a group of businessmen who eat at City Cafe on a regular basis, at least once a week. Great food, delightful service, and never a disappointment!

A good meat and three but the highlight is their fried foods. Not sure how they do it but even from the warming oven the chicken tenders, pork chops, etc are moist, tender, crispy and non-greasy. In a word, Yummy. The sides are good with a nod to the creamy lime and pineapple salad with lots of pecans.

A nice location in a Brentwood strip mall. Place is very clean with friendly service and reasonable prices. Portions are adequate. The food is fresh and home made, very tasty, not fancy but good.

City Cafe has always been on time to deliver food for office luncheons when we choose them to cater. Not many options in this area for a meat and three. I suppose their prices and portions are comparable to other restaurants in the "high rent district" of Brentwood.
