Diner setting with fantastic food. Presentation of food is amazing. The portions are large so bring a good appetite. The cakes and pies are like no other.

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!
