Dine out like a deli. Had bowls of bean chilli soup with avocado, radish & scallions. So tasty & just right in a cold day. Staff friendly. Clean throughout. Will call again

This place is just what it looks like. Nothing fancy, but decent fast food that is not fast-food. We had an omelette, breakfast sandwich, potatoes, yogurt parfait, coffee and juice. The cost wasn't terrible, considering the location, and the food was made to order. The worst part really, were the pushy customers. Poor traffic flow to the registers and a... More

I was walking by the Cafe Europa on 5th Ave and stopped to try their pizza. I had a sausage and a plain slice. The sauce must have come from a can and the crust looked and tasted like a frozen pizza. Most NY pizzarias use fresh dough that is hand tossed and is uneven and crispy. I have had... More

Getting in and out with a delicious sandwich and coffee was very fast. If you prefer something healthier and tastier than a fast food chain sandwich, give this place a try and you won't be disappointed!

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
