This place is like one of the traditional diners you would see on TV. A HUGE menu - breakfast food, waffles, sandwiches, Greek dishes, you name it. Everything I have ever tried here has been really good (Well okay, except for the grouper fish, but to be fair I've never been able to find decent grouper anywhere else either, in a landlocked state like Tennessee!)

The prices are just right, the service is good. I've never tried any of their desserts, mostly because I'm just not a big fan of huge slices of cake! But I would definitely go back and recommend it to anybody.

We tried it based on the recommendation of somebody from work, and it's like he said - the place may not look like much when you see it from the outside, especially considering it's attached to a Best Western! But it gets better once you step inside, don't let the looks on the outside fool you.

Forget your Waffle House and IHOP, City Cafe has it all. Around the clock diner food and a warmer atmosphere than most diners. Get yourself a big delicious slice of cake...it's big enough to share! We like to go there for dessert and coffee.

We ate here as we stayed at the attached Best Western (see separate review) and this marvel of a restaurant was a great added benefit to our stay. Just head in, pick anything on the extensive menu and enjoy it. We had both take-out after arrival and breakfast the next morning; both were exceptional in every respect. Service was very good, food quality was outstanding and value for money just cannot be beat. I forgot to tell them I was a guest a the hotel -and so receive a 10% discount- but I don't care. The food was well, well worth the actual price we paid. Go and eat your fill!

From eggplant to omelet, from moussaka to BLT's and desserts that will make the fat lady sing, City Cafe is a reasonably priced, full service restaurant with a delectable, diverse menu aimed at satisfying anyone's taste buds. Very courteous service, though maybe not the fastest in town. The atmosphere is true to name as it is a cafe setting. The City Cafe is open 24 hours a day. Draft beer selections are not available at this location.

This is a hidden jewel of a place! It's a diner not a fancy restaurant but you can't tell that by the food. There are so many choices on the menu including daily specials! We have had breakfast, lunch and dinners and everything was excellent! We recently had the seafood bisque and it could be served at any 4 star restaurant, it was sooooo good! The wait staff is excellent too. Now if you want a cup of coffee and a piece of cake, you will have a hard time choosing because there are so many and they are huge 4 layer cakes!
If there is a negative, it's the parking. Since it is at the The Best Western Heritage Inn, the parking can be hard to find But don't let that stop you, it is worth the effort. bon appetit
