I ate at the City Cafe on this trip and was extremely pleased. Their menu is quite extensive, the food is expertly prepared, the service is good and they are open 24/7 just off Interstate 75.

Their menu pretty much covers most types of food you want. From breakfast to burgers, gyros to nachos they have it all. The portions are HUGE so bring your appetite. The prices are very reasonable too. Be sure to save room for cake or pie. It's seems a little pricey at first but once you see the generous amount in... More

My wife, 10 month-old son, and me stopped in for a 2:00 (late) lunch. We did not leave until 4:30 with many tables vacant. The waitress was apologetic and the service WE RECEIVED was great but the food was only average. (Not terrible! But, not fantastic...) The desserts, on the other hand, are fantastic! I would hate to see the... More

We're from out of town visiting family for Christmas, and staying at the hotel which this diner is connected to. Family actually recommended we eat here and I'm so glad we did! The menu is extensive, there is something for everyone. I had the grilled chicken italiano and my boyfriend had the beef stroganoff; both were absolutely delicious. We ordered... More

We visited on a Sunday around 3pm. The help was attentive, the food was properly prepared as ordered and tasted good. Two of the kids had breakfast and the remainder of us had sandwiches (french dip, Monte Cristo and an open faced roast beef.) The bill for two adults, a 14 year old, a 13 year old and an 8... More

Chattanooga has a lot of great places to eat. Diners are few. City Cafe is a true diner with a huge menu. Staff is friendly. The food is great! Bring your appetite cause portions are very generous. If you have room, do yourself a favor and order one of their desserts. You won't be disappointed. If nothing else get one... More

We had never been here or heard of it but the hotel clerk said we really should try it out. They literally have one of the most amazing menus I have ever seen, there is every kind of cuisine. It took me 20 minutes just to decide what I wanted to eat, the portions are huge you could literally share... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Chattanooga. It's open 24 hours a day, and has an almost unlimited selection of cakes and desserts, all of which are delicious. They're breakfast is pretty great too. I ate several of their omelets and they do not disappoint.

Good menu and fast service. Ordered takeout for family members staying at the hospital. Portions were large and food was hot, fresh, and tasty. My only complaint was the most not letting me order a children's meal even after I had ordered 3 adult meals for takeout. Otherwise, good experience and I'll be back for sure.

Thank Britain R
