When this casual Mt. Vernon eatery added an airy dining room and full dinner menu to its original self-service cafe, it brought a much-needed venue to midtown, with great appeal for neighborhood residents and theatergoers alike. The… Read Full Editorial

Car towed after Valet by corbinray via Citysearch on 6/20/2010

On Friday 6/18/2010 we visited City Cafe on a last minute meal before a friends birthday. They offer free valet which parks the cars across the street at a garage's parking lot. When leaving @ 10:30-10:45 we talked to valet and told them…

Try the specials by Tanya B via Insider Pages on 12/11/2008

City Cafe can seem a little pricey at first glance; however, there are some great dinner specials and happy hour pricing. If you are looking for a quick bite, they offer a variety of pre-made sandwiches you can grab and take with you.

good place to eat =) by pook24 via Citysearch on 9/24/2008

Went to City Cafe before a show at the Lyric. Was sat quickly (had made reservations). It was Tuesday and 1/2 price bottle of wine day which was a nice suprise. Food was hot and came out quickly, very tasty. Had a nice balance between…

Bad service, owner doesn't care by Goatdog via Citysearch on 4/18/2008

Food is good and staff works hard, but kitchen is clearly understaffed and unprepared. On three occasions food took over 1/2 hr to reach the table. I spoke to the owner (Bruce), who had the audacity to say "we're busy for a reason" and…

Snippy and not customer friendly by scorp4life via Citysearch on 12/15/2007

I am African American, I've come to this location several times before, and each time I come, I encounter snippy attitudes from the staff. This morning, December 15, 2007, I ordered a cinnamon bagel with cream cheese and an eggnog. This…

City Cafe in Mt Vernon by Christin T via Insider Pages on 6/15/2006

City Cafe is a very busy very metro style atmosphere typical city restaurant. The food is good but portions are a little small and the meal price is a bit on the expensive side. They have a nice little bar in the restaurant that can make…

Great neighborhood coffee joint and more by Robert S. via Judy's Book on 4/15/2006

This is a great little coffee joint and restaurant. The prices are a little high and service can be spotty. But if you're looking for a great place to people watch, catch up on conversation or even just be engrossed in your laptop, the…

Delicious but pricey food by Sara G. via Judy's Book on 3/28/2006

The City Cafe's greatest draw is the very cool atmosphere that it has. It is a great place to grab a cup of coffee and sit down and write, study, socialize, or watch the world pass by. It also has great food if you want something more…

great food...great service by G W via Insider Pages on 9/22/2005

City Cafe offers great food and service. Everything fro soups to's all good and always fresh. The servers aren't breathing down your neck. Ambience is nice too.

City Cafe by Glenn W. via Judy's Book on 9/14/2005

The City Cafe offers good food if you are willing to pay for it. I guess the owners figure everyone in Mt Vernon makes lots of money so they charge too much. It's the place to be least for now. It is good for dropping by for a…

Pros and Cons by Charles A. via Judy's Book on 8/15/2005

Cafe Cafe used to be one of the best places in Mt. Vernon to enjoy a cup of coffee and/or have dinner. The food was of high quality and average price. However, the food quality seems to have diminished and the price has sky rocketed. A…

A Little Treasure in Mt. Vernon District by glowbug via Citysearch on 7/12/2005

After being a city resident for several years, I aim for a periodic change in interests of foods and atmosphere. City Cafe is well worth visiting especially during the summer days when they have tables set outside. Their pastry and sweet…

Decadent desserts point to the coffee-bar origins of this Mount Vernon restaurant. by Contributor via Citysearch on 1/16/2004

The Scene
Lofty, arched windows and a checkerboard marble floor are the primary clues that this place originally was built as an upscale car dealership in the Roaring '20s. Clean lines and uncluttered elegance stay true to its…

Spiced Out! by jszulewski via Citysearch on 12/15/2003

The restaurant was very comfortable and attractive, the food was another thing. The crock my onion soup was served in was covered with spice on the bottom, covered! While the stroganoff was a huge portion the chef must have mixed it up…

food and atmosphere! by wigget via Citysearch on 7/30/2002

Great tasting food and lots of it. It may take a while to get a seat though.

Great Breakfast! by DCB728 via Citysearch on 6/21/2002

I was in Baltimore for a couple of days and happened upon the City Cafe. What a great place-comfy but unassuming. And the food-ah the food-very very good-especially the breakfast. Prices are very reasonable and the service is pleasant. …
