Hubby & I went in today early afternoon & had a great experience! Sunday afternoon music by guitarist Pat Murphy sounded great in the clean cozy space. Loved the dim lights, made me feel cooler as it was sweltering outside. My smoked salmon platter was...More

Good morning all! I'm sitting here at City Bistro. Staff has outright refused to accommodate my request to exclude the oil* that their few vegan offerings are prepared with. So here I sit with growling stomach watching handsome husband eat. Yay for unplanned intermittent fasting!!...More

It's nice to get away from the cookie-cutter chain restaurants on a long trip and City Bistro is an eclectic island in a sea of averageness. Healthy wraps, good tea and a guitar-playing singer just sort of showed up to perform on a late Sunday...More

After my hubby and I relocated throughout this aesthetically pleasing, adeptly decorated establishment twice to avert a faint but noticeable fishy smell, I obtained the results of City Bistro’s most recent food inspection (published online). According to the results of a food inspection report conducted...More

We walked here from our hotel and completely underestimated it, thinking it was probably a pseudo-Starbucks (good coffee, terrible food). We were so wrong! The food and pastries here are amazing, and plated gorgeously. My husband had a cheese Danish that I wanted to rub...More

I got the gorgonzola pear flat bread and my wife "The Hobbit." Both were fresh, tasty and sized just right. I'm often leary of strip store front restaurants - but don't let the outside looks put you off. They do a very nice job. I'd...More

I stopped here for breakfast and wanted a hearty meal with vegetables included. I got the breakfast wrap, which has scrambled egg, melted cheese, a slightly spicy salsa and some arugula garnish. Also got bacon in the wrap. I asked for spinach too because I...More

I've had many a bacon egg and cheese breakfast sandwich, and they are usually fairly predictably very good, but this one was the best I've ever had! It had some kind of special sauce that I am unable to identify, but it added enough of...More

Robin, As owners, when you read a bad review your heart always sinks. It affects business and community perception far more than many realize. Fortunately enough, the majority of our reviews are extremely positive. Having said that, when we do receive constructive feedback, we look...More

Partners Robyn & Ted Mooney & Natasha Olivera, along with an outstanding crew, strive to provide a warm genuine dining experience focused on fresh ingredients, local produce & a sense of community. An experience rather than just a meal, an occasion for some food for thought & being more than just a flash in the pan is what we strive toward every day. What has followed since our beginning has been an exciting and joyful exploration of who we are, what we love and what we envision sharing with the world. Our search for the sincerely exceptional has led us to create a restaurant that embodies a home away from home, a place to run into friends, or make new ones. The Bistro is centered around celebrating community culture, local art & music. The heart of our menu is about good clean culinary techniques, respect for ingredients and their origin and our environment. More than just concept, this is a tangible & heartfelt component of who we are & what we are creating. Special attention is given to vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and healthy options because we believe in encouraging diversity at the table & carefully curating a menu that satisfies every individual. Our Chefs & Baristas are well-informed & knowledgeable about the origins of every product & it would be our pleasure to custom-make any item to suit your preferences and requirements. Please join us soon, make yourself at home & become a part of our growing family.
