A smaller, intimate space, but completely inviting with fun and funky art on the walls. The staff was great - genuinely happy and you can see they enjoy chatting with their customers. The food was amazing. Clearly fresh produce and ingredients. My friend and I...More

Fun atmosphere but a bit LOUD for breakfast. Servers were friendly, and helpful. I have to say that I expected more from the food - average. Had the biscuits and gravy. Biscuits were fine but the gravy was cold and a gel like. The accompanying...More

I have been to city girl on several occasions, and my favorite visit has been those at breakfast. Dinner is also reasonable, but not quite as charming, with sandwiches a little expensive for their quality. A must order, if there for dinner, is the grilled...More

We loved our brunch here -- after waiting for a place (allow time). Everything was carefully prepared and excellent quality. Their vegetable hash is fabulous. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays. Brunch Saturdays and Sundays but no lunch in general.

I've had three amazing meals here: 2 anniversaries and a birthday and have never been disappointed. The pasta is always fresh and delicious, the service is terrific, the wine is right-priced and the dining room is cozy and clean.

We had a lovely brunch here on a Saturday morning with friends. I had the biscuits and gravy, which apparently they are known for, and my husband had the 'Verde' (spinach and pesto eggs). Both were excellent. Best of all, however was the iced coffee....More

Best brunch I think I've ever had. City Girl Cafe is a lovely tiny spot in Cambridge. Be prepared to wait, I think there are only about 8 tables. The decor is so nice and cozy and everything on the menu looked delicious. Try the...More
