This once 5 star restaurant has lost it's edge, I am not sure if they are resting on their once great reputation for high end menu creativity coupled with excellent service or they just do not care, either way, the past 2 visits were horribly disappointing.

Recently my Wife and I enjoyed our dinner at Krave Cafe. The Menu is simple, yet varied, with options ranging from a Root Vegetable Lasagna, to a Tandoori Lamb Meatball. I ordered the Skirt Steak with a Bacon-Leek Potato Salad and my Wife had the Local Beef Burger with a Bacon-Onion Jam and Brie. They were delicious!. On a Tuesday... More

We have been going to Krave Cafe for several years and agree with its TripAdvisor #1 rating in Newton. We like it better than any other restaurant we've tried in Sussex County. The salads are fresh with interesting ingredients. We usually avoid the appetizers in order to keep the price down, and because they are usually small. We usually avoid... More

If it wasn't for my friend's celebration, I would not have taken the long drive from my house to there. Well, I can happily state, that this truly was worth the drive. Went to Krave Cafe last week and had the most delicious dish. Black Bass. My friends had the Tuna, excellent, and the filet mignon, wonderful. Tasted all. Also... More

We decided to go out for dinner on a whim. We had ridden by Krave and it's always crowded but we decided to join the crowd. It was well worth the wait! Waitress was courteous, food was delicious, atmosphere was wonderful!

Location will never be the draw here. And now, on to the positives. Outdoor area that's made private by the handsome dividing wall and allows an awesome patio experience when the weather allows.
