One of my favorites! My family and I have been going for as long as I can remember! Located in the quaint downtown area of Northport, it is just a taste of grandma's Southern kitchen. Very popular with locals and college students missing home cooking, you will probably have to stand in a line that sometimes loops out onto the sidewalk! There is nothing fancy here. The workers are friendly and have been there for years. The restaurant only serves breakfast and lunch. The menu is mostly choices of vegetables, meats and desserts. Different choices Monday through Friday. I always get the vegetable plate. I love candied yams! My husband loves liver and onions as well as catfish. The prices are unbelievably cheap! If you visit Tuscaloosa or Northport, you have to eat at City Cafe. I dream about it!

Great food at a great price, not leaving hungry. Staff friendly. They could clean the place up, I know it's been there for decades but the stools and floors are just nasty!

Great for either breakfast or lunch. Be prepared to stand in line at lunch, but it's worth the wait. Excellent spot for a quick meat and 3.

Cheap food, excellent breakfast. Nice friendly staff. We've been eating there for years and it hasn't changed a bit and doesn't need to!
