Clearly the other popular reviews in here are written by the owners- don't waste your time or money. Food is below average, mould on the so called fresh juice, dirty fridges and coffee that tastes like it came out of engine.

New York is a melting pot for people from the Americas, Asia and every race one can or cannot think of. It would be challenging to meet everyone's need in food and beverage. The Cafe Europa is a lovely cafe that caters for all taste. I enjoy the variety of cakes that I had at this cafe.

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!
