City Cafe ranked BEST BRUNCH in Baltimore Magazine! 7/2012
"The very concept of brunch suggests urban idleness - a leisurely weekend morning punctuated by food and, possibly, a hair-of-the-dog cocktail - with the only remaining cares a perusal of the Sunday papers and an afternoon nap. City Cafe takes this kind of indulgence seriously, encouraging lassitude with large, artfully arranged plates of crab, or spinach-topped Benedicts, omelets packed with crisp fried oysters, and tangy-sweet lemon-ricotta pancakes. Ease into the day sipping a Sunrise, a martini with Stoli strawberry and basil, or snap to attention with a frothy cappuccino."
We LOVE large groups at City Cafe!
Our website now has a section devoted to Special Occasion Prix Fixe parties.
If you are planning an retirement party or celebrating a special birthday dinner, this is a good place for you to start.
Please pull down our MENU option and click on "Special Occasion Prix Fixe" to see photos of our semi-private loft and get all the information needed to price out and set a date for a larger-than-normal group of friends, co-workers or family.

Loaded Potato Chips
Baltimore Sun's 100 BEST RESTAURANTS
The symphony crowd comes here for dinner, and handsome men gather at the bar. But by day, the city's non-profit sector settles down to do its good works, both one-on-one and in large groups that City Cafe accommodates on its dining loft. Chad Gauss' smart menu makes ordering a breeze, leaving plenty of time to solve the world's problems.--Richard Gorelick
City Cafe Wins Best of Baltimore Top 10 Burgers!
Baltimore Magazine's August issue nominates City Cafe #2 for Top Ten Burgers. "Chef Chad Gauss works wonders with his blackened turkey burgers - two moist, four-ounce patties on cheddar-jalapeno rolls, each topped with a fried-green tomato and chipotle mayo."
