Really enjoyed the food. Good service and the price was very reasonable. Great place to grab a bite and enjoy the food. Fully recommend the food. A must in NYC.

Europa Café has many options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I visited 2x on my trip to NYC in June, 2013. I visited the "Make your Own" salad buffet. Basically you pick out the lettuce type in a bowl from a refridgerator case, take it to the person behind the "fixings station" and tell them what to load up on... More

I work just down the block from this place. I eat here at least once a month, usually about 5 times a month, sometimes much more. There are many delis/cafes like this one in the area and much of their clientele are people like me who work in the local offices. They also have a high amount of tourists as... More

Since it's Restaurant Week in NYC, I had been hoping to try a taste of Gordon Ramsay's cafe in The London (54th Ave, NYC), but sadly, they were completely booked. With a change of plans to leave the area sooner, I grabbed a quick bite at Cafe Europa. I believe this is a chain, but it was speedy and quite... More

Nothing special about these places. They have average food for more than average prices. Sometimes I go in to just get a cookie when I need my cookie fix.

The great reviews for this cafe must have been made by people who didn't ask the price of an item before they bought it! I did, and met the only 2 rude people we met in NY in the week we were there--the cashier and manager. I can't comment on the food as I walked out before buying anything.

Great place for inexpensive but good food. We had two zesto sandwiches and a slice of pepperoni pizza and it all came up to $25 with drinks, especially the sandwiches tasted really fresh. Much enjoyed!

This place was recommended to us by a salesperson at the Orvis across the street. There were a lot of choices: salads, soup, pizza, etc. We had the thin crust cheese pizza which was quite good. The cookie cupcake, however, was a dry disappointment especially for $5. There was a hard-working busboy who impressed us very much by moving around... More

This a chain of excellent cafes - we tried a couple of them while in New York and they were both of the same great standard. The selection of breakfast and lunch food can't fail to please - there are plenty of healthy options as well or can you blow your pipe out if you feel like it with it... More
