They serve the typical diner food- large portions! The food is a bit above average but the cakes are amazing. They have soooo many different types of cakes. Worth the visit!

We had lunch - menu was huge. Food was great and plenty of it. Parking can be a bit hard but this is a place you'd not normally say "Hey, lets stop there" - Make it a must stop. You'll be glad you did.

We went early enough that parking in their small lot wasn't an issue. There is also street parking available.

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!
