We showed up at City Cafe Diner at 2pm on a Saturday thinking it wouldn't be busy, but and it was packed, which is a good sign that it's worth the wait!! Despite the fact it was busy, we didn't have to wait long to be seated. I ordered the Cafe City Melt, which is turkey with sautéed onions and... More

We were staying at the hotel that the resturaunt is located in and ordered a light meal to eat in our room after a 10 hour drive. They are fast and the food was very good with large quantities.

We had never eaten at this location. It was very good. We were seated without a wait and the waitress greeted the table immediately. My husband ordered a western Omelette with home fries and rye toast. I ordered a Florentine Omelette with grits and wheat toast. The food was served in a very timely manner. The restaurant was very clean... More

I heard a lot of hype about this place so took a chance. I am not going to say it was a bad choice, but will say average choice. I had a Rubin and it was underwhelming, but okay. Fry's and slaw finished the plate.

I have been to this restaurant third time . They always great you with a big smile. Be careful ordering here cause they serve big portions. After serving the food server came twice to check on us even though restaurant was completely full. Manager came by once to ask if everything is ok. If I had the option to give... More

This reminds me of the sort of Cafe you'd find just off the strip in Vegas. Huge menu and a huge selection of cakes, pies and other desserts. The food was all really good, service was fast and friendly and the cake was great. Go here.
