The menu is huge. And the prices are decent. However my food came out mostly cold, and they forgot an item. Service was slow and inattentive for the most part. I'd give it another go cuz the food was good, just not executed well.

Some people are pretty on the outside, but shallow and poorly put together on the inside, and vice versa. Restaurants are the same. City Cafe is that plain looking girl you met in Organic Chemistry who got you into medical school. The food is off the hook delicious!! The cake is bar none, the best dessert ever, per my picky...

After an adult night out hopping bars, we decided to stop by the diner on the way out of town for breakfast. Who would have thought that a diner, inside/next to a days inn would be such a great find!! Portions: each plate is really enough for two! The home fries serving fed both myself and my wife. The biscuits... More

They have tons of options to choose from. It can be a bit overwhelming. Our waitress was great. She gave some recommendations, checked on us several times and kept our drinks refilled. The portions are huge. We ordered cheese fries, a house salad with grilled chicken, the famous one pounder, strawberry cheesecake and snickers pie. Food was good.

Stopped for a quick lunch after RV show and had great service and delicious mushroom cheeseburger with Texas fries. Delicious looking cake desserts but no room to enjoy, but maybe if I return again to area.

The City Cafe Diner has lots of choices. My husband and I shared the French Dip and Texas fries. It was enough to share. The cakes and pastries were very impressive! They have so many different flavors and combinations to satisfy any sweet tooth!

This place was such a surprise - it truly was fabulous! Such an excellent huge menu, terrific service, and totally more food than one could eat for a great price. The cakes are photographic-worthy! Can't say enough about the place.

This is a great place to eat breakfast. Looking through the menu they have all kinds of dishes. My wife and I have the special and it was great. Lots of food. We should have split it.

Being from up north we like having an authentic Greek Diner in town (they have 3 or 4 in the Chattanooga metro area). HUGE menu and HUGE entrees to match. Mile high desserts too. Expect a wait for breakfast on the weekend but worth it.
