Wow the selection of desserts when you walk in the door. Almost didn't want breakfast. They looked amazing. Had the omelets & breakfast quesadilla. They were wonderful. Enough food to fill you up. The waitress was very friendly.

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!
