It's hard to describe this restaurant. It's a little like an old-school diner, but the menu is pretty small and focused more on soups and sandwiches. The prices are a little high for sandwiches, but the food is pretty good. I'd recommend the white bean soup.

This Cafe has nice choices to choose from. On our visit passing through the area our thoughts were something light to eat. Boy were we surprised by our choices for a cup or bowl of soup and a piece of home made cornbread this was the best. Along with a warm and cozy atmosphere from the owners and service. This... More

While antique shopping in Old Central City we worked up an appetite so thought we'd try the cafe. We were so pleasantly surprised! We go back whenever we're in the neighborhood. Everything we've ever had was delicious home cooking with little extras that make it more special such as a little slice of watermelon on the plate. The homemade soups... More

Stopped by on a lark. Ended up bringing parents back the next day it was so good. Simple food with great taste. Recommend meatloaf, cheeseburger, and hot ham and cheese sandwiches. And the pie is to die for!!! Cherry and apple was what we had. Slices are huge and served with 2 scoops of ice cream.

I am in town this week on business and saw that the Central City Cafe had been on DD&Ds a few years ago and figured I'd give it a try. I was not disappointed! I got the soup and sandwich combo and it was great. I am hoping that I get to go back one more time this week and... More

We stopped in after visiting some of the antique shops, this is a great place for a "home cooked" meal! It is family owned and operated, they are great! Friendly and welcoming. Big portions too. I highly recommend.

We had lunch today. My husband got the meatloaf and I got a Rueben. He said meatloaf maybe not his favorite but my Rueben was terrific. They serve the thousand island on the side ...glad they did cause I like mustard. Lots of meat and most delicious sauerkraut. A little expensive lunch...but dinner sized😋

This place was featured on Diners, drive-ins and dives and had great reviews. We found this place because of the show and it met the hype, great food and service. I will go back!
