We got to City Café for Breakfast Saturday mornings and we love it. The kids like the pancakes and sausage and I like the eggs with all the fixings. The food is fast and hot, the staff is very friendly and attentive. Highly recommend.

City café has been in Decatur for may, many years. The food s consistently good. Their breakfast is cooked to order and they know how to make soft-scrambled eggs which I like. Banana pudding is also a favorite of many.
