Midtown Cafe & Dessertery: Your Neighborhood Restaurant and More

When it comes to local favorites, Midtown Cafe & Dessertery ranks high on this list. And for good reason. A locally owned restaurant, Midtown has been a staple in the community for over 30 years! Its endurance is credited to several factors, including – a great staff, a convenient location, a delicious menu, and it promises to offer something to everyone!

Location, location, location

Long-time residents may remember the days when Midtown was tucked away in Thruway. A charming dessertery boutique that was popular for coffee and delectable cakes. It was a favorite for many. And in 1995, the restaurant moved across the road and over the bridge to the current location it’s called home for over two decades. Because of its proximity to Business 40, downtown, and Thruway, Midtown is a perfectly positioned meeting spot for families and friends.

Friendly Hospitality

For those who have been long-time patrons of Midtown Cafe & Dessertery, walking through those doors is as familiar as coming home. With a low-turnover staff (many of whom have worked at Midtown for 20+ years), customers get to know the employees. With many employees on a first-name basis with customers, Midtown Cafe & Dessertery has not only perfected their signature Five-Flavor Pound Cake, but they’ve perfected the art of true Southern Hospitality, too.
