Good food and great service. They have a very large selection of foods to chose from. If you eat here, you need to try their extremely large cake and pie slices.

Must be some confusion. City Cafe diner is a great diner. However, we stayed about a block away at the Marriott Downtown and they have both an indoor and outdoor pool. A wonderful hotel!
