We like eating here on Sunday mornings and usually get breakfast. I recommend the breakfast bowls, but they have some other great things on the menu. It's nothing special, looks like an old time diner, but sometimes this is exactly what you want. The folks...More

The restaurant itself leaves a lot to be desired. It needs a good cleaning and some sprucing up. That said, I ordered a skillet meal. Potatoes with onions, peppers and mushrooms topped with crumbled sausage, eggs and cheese. It was very tasty. It was served...More

City east is one of the better local breakfast places around. Large selection of bagels and lots of untraditional menu choices. Both my wife and I enjoyed the lox and eggs. This time I had the salami scramble. The flavored creme cheese are also worth...More

Restaurant could use a through cleaning in the dining area. Looked dark and dingy. Wish the food was redeeming but it was little better than ordinary. Cold grits, cheese on the omelette instead of in it, toast just ok. All would be better if hot.

Went on a Sat AM for breakfast. Place is very busy. Food is very good and Service is good too. Prices are decent cost us over $25 with top. Food choices are great and good quality food. Definitely will go back to try the sandwiches.

Waited a long time for our food, but it was hot and tasty when we received it. The oatmeal pancakes and potato hash were nice, but I was disappointed in the banana bagel (no banana flavor) as well as the omelette. Don't get cheese grits,...More

Was super excited to try this place. It took months to get my husband to agree based on comments he has heard. Once he finally approved trying it out, I stopped in and placed a to-go order. You could feel the chaos the moment you...More

Today I had scrambled eggs with lox and onions. It was delicious, I substituted grits instead of hash brown potatoes. Had a jalapeno and cheese bagel everything was delicious. My husband had salami and eggs and my daughter had pancake breakfast. Pancakes were huge and...More
