what do diners expect??????

This part of NYC has many fine restaurants but some are a complete rip off. This little place is fine for a snack and a sandwhich, The pasta is cooked in front of you and the portion decent for the average diner. give it a try,

Not very nice staff ... It seems like they are doing a favor if they look at you and care about you... I asked for soy milk and they told me that they don't have, but instead they do.. Expensive for what they offer :(

Enjoyed my breakfast here. Had a large cream cheese bagel & a cup of oatmeal with brown sugar. Fresh squeezed orange juice as a drink. Total was $9. Taste was very good. Would definitely recommend if you are wanting a quick breakfast option in the area.

Stopped into Cafe Europa to refuel while shopping on Fifth Avenue with my husband. We both ordered cafe au laits and a chocolate croissant to share. A great pick-me-up!

We went to Cafe Europa at about 4pm on a Sunday afternoon. We only had tea and cake, but oh, the cake was lovely. My husband had carrot cake and I had the apple cinnamon pie, Yum, yum. Our visit coincided with the end of a concert at Carnegie Hall, which is on the opposite corner, and we watched all... More

Cafe Europa is located on 5th ave in Midtown Manhattan. They have a wide variety of food choices. My favorite is the chopped salad. You pick your greens and then they add as many toppings as you would like on an assembly line type system. Then the salad is put through an industrial type food processor and it is chopped... More

We enjoyed our breakfast here - a wrap with sausage, egg, mushroom and tomato, and pancakes with sausages. Juice was nice, tea was passable.

Not fancy...choose your own food and pay at the counter, but that end of New York does not have a wealth of everyday type places to catch a bite if you are sightseeing. Recommend by the local police woman when we just wanted a bite. Lots of choices. The warm sandwiches were good. Others in our party had the salads,... More

I stopped in here with my family back in December, a few days before Christmas. We were in the mood for some dessert and we just happened upon here while walking around. It took us a long time to actually get our desserts since none of the workers spoke English and couldn't understand which desserts we wanted (despite us pointing... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
