MLK location good breakfast, wake up to hot coffee and corn beef omelet. Plenty of food. Parking tight so get there early. In competition with Days Inn guest.

Before leaving Chatanooga for Nashville we met a longtime friend from law school who suggested we meet at the City Cafe Diner which was only a few blocks from the Marriott we stayed at. This is clearly where the locals go to eat. The breakfast menu was extensive and the baked desserts were all on display. My wife had cake... More

The service was good and fast. Ate twice at this establishment and enjoyed it each time. The portions were large, coffee fresh and strong, eggs were perfect.

They have a great breakfast and lunch, and unbelievable desserts. The chocolate suicide tart is fantastic. They also do carry out for my guys at work and they all love the food... More

As it is understandable that the reviews must be reviewed by City Cafe before being placed publicly on line. However, I am highly disappointed in the downtown location. Saturday night after a concert we visited the Cafe as usual. I mainly come for the cake but the food is always amazing too. This particular night we had a party of... More

We decided to go to Chattanooga on a whim. Looking for something to have for lunch, we came across this place. The service was excellent, portions over the top, and great prices. We decided that we would have breakfast there the next morning. After looking for other dinner options, we were amused to find ourselves back to have dinner. Again... More

The menu is huge. And the prices are decent. However my food came out mostly cold, and they forgot an item. Service was slow and inattentive for the most part. I'd give it another go cuz the food was good, just not executed well.
