“Intimate atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2012 via mobile

Went there for lunch today. Had the sweet and sour pork loin, steamed veggies, and cup of tomato soup. Very tasty, would definitely go back. Quick service. Even bought a chocolate chip cookie on the way out the door. Nice to support a local restaurant!

“Underwhelmed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2012

We are new to Topeka and sampling the area "fine dining" restaurants (loosely termed for sure). New City Cafe caught our eye so we decided to give it a try on a Friday night. Decor is mismatched - a few good ideas to create a mood but it's too eclectic (not in a good way in my opinion). The large freezer case that spans nearly the whole width of the dining room is honestly an eye sore. Apparently it's used at lunch time but when not in use, it's just big and empty. Service was of medium quality - not bad, not outstanding. Food was also mediocre in flavor and presentation. Portion sizes were adequate but the food was still overpriced considering the atmosphere, presentation, and overall feel of the place. It's a strip mall restaurant that is really trying to be "fancy" but it misses the mark.

“New Saturday Breakfast Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2012

New City has opened for breakfast on Saturday from 8 AM to 11 AM. Quite an assortment of breakfast items prepared to order. Biscuits & Green Chile Sausage, Smoked Salmon eggs benedict, 2 types of pancakes, Croissant French Toast with rum caramelized bananas. and omelets all freshly prepared. Don't overlook the freshly cooked scones, muffins & danish.
Very relaxed atmosphere. Great place for Saturday morning breakfast.
