Very unpleasant hostess/manager. Magda refused to seat four of us because of a small service dog. She apparently had no clue what a service dog does, the ADA rules, etc. She refused to look at the dog's credentials when offered. She refused to listen or review a copy of the ADA regs when politely... read more

Had brunch here on a Saturday morning. Pancakes were great - huge portion, great taste. Coffee was good. Hot chocolate was excellent with frothy milk on top. Baked goods were just average. Croissants were like packaged supermarket baked goods. This place is very cute and staff was great. Just expected a little more from the baked goods. So many great... More

we stopped in for breakfast and ordered two ham, egg, and cheddar croissants with a tea and a hot chocolate. The total charge was about $35. The price seemed fair until I saw that the ham looked like Oscar Meyer versus deli. Service was great overall.

We stopped to get a drink in the afternoon. My wife ordered an orange juice, it was very bad and watery, despite costing $5. She also took a Cheese strudel, very cold and thick as a brick. My tea was ok. People were nice, too bad!

Went for a light dinner and was very impressed. I was looking to have the deep fried tilapia, but the waitress said all sold out. I did ask for if they could make something different. Olive oil with spaghetti some walnuts and garlic, Aglio Et Olio. My friend had Prosciutto di Parma, Mozzarella, Tomato and Basil. Both dishes came with... More

I had been to Borgia II before, therefore I came back to have lunch here while shopping in SoHo. I had the Penne Marinara and it was just what I expected. The penne came with two slices of garlic bread - everything was very nice. The atmosphere is very relaxed as well. There's only a few tables and it is... More

We have popped in to the cafe for a quick lunch in the past which was great. This time we wandered in for dessert and coffee and had a great time. I had the Pecan Pie (warmed) and hazelnut coffee and it could not have been better. This is one of those small neighborhood places that many will walk by,... More

A perfect place to stop for brunch post a hectic morning of shopping. The Eggs Benedict were divine, the service wonderful and it has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. I'd highly recommend you stop here.

This was a great little spot in Soho to go for brunch,lunch, or a casual dinner. There were a number of vegetarian options, which was great for me. My food was very tasty, and the lattes and tiramisu were outstanding.

Neighborhood Profile
SoHo
Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway is teeming with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district – the world’s largest collection of intricate and elegant cast-iron architecture. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city.
