What a find this was in the East Village, queuing outside is always a good sign and a table for 6 appeared just as we arrived. An excellent selection of appetisers and main courses and all for sharing. With 4 teenage boys this was important as it was their first experience of Moroccan style food and brought comments like great... More

On the advice of a native New Yorker, we visited Cafe Mogador for Sunday brunch during our recent trip to NYC. I love mediterranean food, so Cafe Mogador was a real treat for me. They serve brunch/breakfast on Sundays until 4 p.m., which was great, because were moving slow that day. The Halumi Eggs were delicious, and their homemade sausage... More

it was busy and noisy when we were there, but the couscous was very good. For some reason the broth came later when we were half the way through but apart from that a good experience.

Went by for lunch with the family, and was really pleased with the welcoming feel from the staff. The sandwich i had was very tasty, and as usual I opted for the salad instead of fries which was a very good choice - the salad was very well put together and made the meal better. Our daughter, who's a picky... More

We visited Café Mogador at the end of June while dropping my son off for a summer program at NYU. It was lunch time on Sunday, but they were still service brunch so most in our party opted for that. I had an omelet with spinach and goat cheese which was absolutely delicious! The brunch was served with orange juice... More

I have been here for both dinner and breakfast and both meals were spot on. They have a little bit of outdoor seating which is nice but hard to get. Even though the get kind of busy even during the brunch rush, they are worth the wait and really seat everyone as fast as they can. They also close late,... More

This bistro serves Moroccan cuisine with a number of French dishes thrown in. We were there with a large party (about 10) on a Wednesday evening. The service was attentive, the prices very reasonable (typical for the area), the crowd happily noisy, but the noise not overwhelming. We sampled throughout the menu from a properly done hanger steak with excellent... More

During a 5 day stay in the East Village with our friends, we happened to walk by this café on several occasions and noticed it was so inviting and always had lots of people. We went two mornings in a row, one was on the weekend when they served brunch. We all liked our breakfasts, and my husband's eggs benedict... More

For over 30 years, Café Mogador in the East Village is serving Moroccan and Mediterranean food, morning til night. And it’s no surprise how this restaurant has stood the test of time. They’re serving tasty, authentic food at super affordable prices. The vibe is extremely relaxed and casual, but you still get friendly and attentive service. Sit where you’d like, whether it’s inside... More

Had the chicken tagin at lunch, with a bowl of lamb and chickpea soup, and labne with fresh bread. In the top 3 of the meals I ate in NYC, and will return. Space is also relaxed and represents the tagine culture.
