This place is amazing! Great prices, great food, friendly staff, and the desserts are amazing. The food is worth every dollar, as you are served very large portions of food. If you visit this location you need to go with an empty stomach. Awesome place!

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!
