Do you take reservations?
What about groups?
We are somewhat limited on the size of groups that we can accommodate. If you have more than eight in your party we suggest calling ahead and speaking to one of our managers. We will do our best to meet your needs but we do not have private rooms for large groups. Generally speaking 10-12 is the single table maximum.
Is the restaurant available for private events?
Totally private parties that require closing City Cafe for a night such as milestone birthdays, anniversaries, or corporate events are available. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Where can I park?
City Cafe offers complimentary valet parking on Friday and Saturday nights and free self parking, on a convenient nearby lot, on weeknights after 6PM and weekend afternoons. The lot is located on the South-West corner of Cathedral and Eager Streets. There is a three hour limit and all vehicles must be moved when you depart City Cafe. Posted restrictions apply.
In addition, there are plenty of metered spots on the left side of Cathedral Street and all along Eager Street. There are two paid surface lots both within a block of City Cafe. One to our east at the corner of Charles & Eager Streets and the other on Cathedral Street a block south of us.What is the difference between the "Cafe" and "Restaurant"?
The difference is the style of service you prefer? In the cafe you order and prepay at the counter and a runner brings your order to you. In the restaurant you are waited on at the table by a server. The cafe is intended for coffee, dessert, lingering, and light meals.
How's Brunch work?
It's a la carte and served on Saturday and Sunday from 10AM - 3PM. At it's busiest the wait for a table is generally about 25 minutes. Space for parties greater than six is extremely limited during brunch.
Do you offer Happy Hour?
Happy Hour happens everyday from 4PM to 6:30PM. We feature $4 mixed drinks with Stoli Vodka, Bacardi Rum, Jack Daniel's Whiskey & Tanqueray Gin, $5 featured wines and $4 draught beers. Served only at the bar and outdoor patio tables (weather permitting).

Are you hiring?
We are generally recruiting experienced, upbeat, and out going personalities to join our team. You may apply in person or email a resume to email@example.com
Will you support my favorite charity?
Yes. All requests for charitable donations to 501c3 non profits and educational organizations should be formally submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our preferred contribution is City Cafe gift cards for use in silent auction fundraisers. We do our best to grant as many requests as possible but we do tend to keep it local.
