I had never been before, but saw a Great Lakes Brewing and pizza tasting event and couldn't pass it up. I was a little hesitant, because of the mix reviews on here. Oh and as someone else mentioned, parking is kind of a pain. It seems mostly 1-hour on its street. I parked maybe a little more than a block away on a 2-hour parking street. We felt bad because it was pretty dead, albeit it was about 3:45. The event started at 3. It started picking up when we were leaving around 5:30. It seemed like mostly families, which makes sense for its location and the small kids area to play in (which has a giant spaceship). For the pairing event, if you bought a pint of GLB beer, you'd get a free pizza sample. There were three pizza sample options, and my boyfriend and I tried two pieces - one was arugula something and the other the "Spicy Rita." We ended up ordering a Spicy Rita to split, as well as an order of macaroni and cheese. The prices are a little expensive, but the menu highlights all its locally sourced ingredients, which I really liked. It also has a lot of different options, including vegan pizza. The Spicy Rita, I loved. And their Firework sauce (a spicy marinara) will probably be my go-to for any future pizzas I order here. The macaroni and cheese was good, but felt it needed a little more. I added broccoli, but maybe a creamier sauce would be better, its mostly just melted cheese on top. It came with an herb breadstick - which you can order as an appetizer - and I will definitely get a full order next time, perfect crispy outside with soft inside. The only other thing was the crust - I enjoyed it, but needed a fork for most slices, as it tends to get too soft and everything slides off. I really didn't mind though, as I still loved the taste. Overall, I'm really glad that I came for the event. The GLB guy (who traveled from Cleveland) was friendly and informative. I liked being able to sample the pizza specials before choosing which to order, although that was only due to the event. I plan to come back again, and I hope they plan more events.
Super good pizza - took a little while to come out of the oven, but they were busy. My vegan slice also came out with cheese on it, but I was so hungry that I didn't send it back and just ate it. But truly, if a customer orders a vegan slice and then you realize it has cheese on it because you start with a cheese base - don't bring it out to them. Make it right.
Checked this place out because we had a $10 off coupon (City Tin). The interior reminded me of a slightly more upscale Noodles... fast casual plus, if you will (cringing that I just typed that). Service was adequate, house salad was good, pesto pizza was fine but not exceptional. It really does remind me of a sit-down Noodles, but swap the pasta for pizza. The menu is pretty diverse, with all your pizza staples (supreme, pepperoni) alongside the BBQ chicken, Greek, etc. If you're looking for ********AMAZING PIZZA*********** you need not visit The Roman Candle. If you're looking for an A-OK spot near the mall to grab dinner, and pizza strikes your fancy, this place is worth checking out.

My local hood joint. They aren't NY Bagels, but really good. I like the coffee, but Stone Creek is right next door so I go there most of the time. I think their Bagels could be a little bigger. I always get the egg, cheese, and turkey sausage, most of the time on the Jalapeno Cheese bagel really good!
Avoid this location. The guy actually making the food was new and in training. The manager couldn't be bothered to help. This location seems under staffed. It is very dirty here. The track lighting above where they make your salad and sandwiches is clumped with dust. Floors need to be swept. Also avoid the Broccoli and cheese soup. It is exactly the same as Panera Bread but seems to have pepper added. It's just a mess. There are better locations for this place. I suggest the one on 85th and bluemound.
Jeffrey: you need to try this location again. I typically come on Sunday morning. Today, the sesame and poppyseed are loaded with seeds. I ordered the Rosemary-OliveOil and it is deliciously fresh. Service is fast despite being quite busy. The coffee is hot, although uninspired. For good coffee, Stone Creek is next door. My 4 stars are because it is a chain after all. I have to reserve 5 stars for my favorite NYC bagel shops.

City market WFB is a great little spot for a light lunch. My husband and I like to dip off and have lunch here every once in a while. The quinoa salad is SOOOO good! The staff is also friendly.
This was worst breakfast I have ever had in a restaurant. I'm not a huge fan of the cafeteria style setup but I was willing to give this place a shot for breakfast despite that. My husband and I both ordered the classic breakfast, coffee, and a side of pancakes. My scrambled eggs were overcooked, and the sausage tasted like it was microwaved then thrown on the grill to put on grill lines - it was mushy and burnt along the grill marks. The fruit was not fresh it looked slimy and the strawberries were grey - I did not eat them. My husbands breakfast was equally as bad his bacon was super burnt along the grill marks and his fruits was nasty. The pancake we got as a side was mealy and not cooked it all the way through. Even the coffee here was gross. Never ever again.
City Market can boast of inept but earnest service by teens who are poorly trained and unsupervised. The food is unseasoned. The room is indeed sterile and poorly designed. I find the place empty at times and bustling at others, but neither the service, the food, nor the ambience explains the latter. Seriously, why does this place stay open when there are better, cheaper options -- even from national franchises.
