Great breakfast/lunch stop

Happened upon this place for breakfast. It was really reasonable and delicious. They had baked goods and various sandwiches as well - all looked fantastic and well priced. Will return.

Horrid food, just terrible. Pasta is incredibly sad. I could've made a better dish blind folded and with only using a microwave. Great location though, I think this is the ONLY reason they're always busy.

Really loved this place. Food is fresh, salads are great, cakes very tasty, service is very efficient and best of all, no queues. Prices may be a little steep, but I don't mind paying that little bit extra for quality food.

My daughters were craving pasta so we ordered their spaghetti bolognese. The portion sizes are a bit small but it does the trick. Despite so many pizza shops all over NYC we couldn't find any that also had pasta. The Italian restaurants that did have pasta were fine dining types so the Europa cafe is it for now (n.b. This...

We popped in here for a quick snack. The staff were not that helpful and the two ladies on the till were more interested in talking to each other than serving me. The wraps we had were quite good but the egg sandwich was poor. The drinks were good. This is a busy place which is fine if you want... More

Stopped in here right around the corner from my hotel for a cup of coffee one morning, great caffe latte, and good bakery. They serve breakfast and other food but this was a quick breakfast coffee stop

Just ok for a bite, I took the tofu bol and it was not that great, the sauce is not tasty, if you're really hungry, for a bite why not but not for a proper good meal...

We both wanted salads for lunch, wished to avoid long lines, and found this café fit our needs. You select the base greens (e.g., kale, romaine...) and specify the additions and dressing. We chose two different modes and had good results for less than $20 for two. The place is close enough to theaters, Times Square, and other happenings, so... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
