Friend & I stopped by to grab a piece of cake. Strawberry shortcake was delicious & it was a huge piece. Only complaint was the guy who took our order at the cash register, he was rude but maybe he was having a bad day.

Lots of food for a reasonable price. I had the rueben and it was ok but couldn't wait for the chocolate suicide cake. Awesomeness! Huge piece of cake. Had a few bites and the rest to go. Really good!

They have every diner food ever thought of and more but they are best know for their desserts. 6 layer cakes with buttercream frosting and cheesecakes. Worth the visit

We love the City Cafe! The staff is friendly, the food is great, there are lots of vegetarian options, and the price is right! But it is a popular place, and is sometimes crowded. But that's what happens with a great place!

I highly recommend City Cafe for breakfast. It's really fast service with friendly servers. The food was really good and believe me when I say they provide large portions. My wife and I could've easily shared our meal. I'll definitely be back next time I'm in Chattanooga!

This adventure was for my mom's birthday. It was a group of 6 (2 kids). My mom had the BBQ Hamburger. It was good. My daughter had the Philly Cheese Steak. It was good. She ordered Texas Fries, expecting steak type fries, and got deep fried potato chunks. It was like they cut a potato in 8 pieces and overcooked... More

Went two nights in a row. The cafe is set as a 1950's type. Chrome and neon everywhere. Great service with a menu that is book size. Something for every taste. Cake and pastery selection that takes a back seat to no one. A must visit while in Chattanooga.
