The service was excellent and the food was prepared well, but be prepared for a restaurant that has awful acoustics. Consequently, it was extremely hard to hear my spouse, but the conversations around us were annoying.

Landed on this cafe through Yelp, great place. The service is a little slow and poor but the food was great. I had the Salmon with sauteed kale, it was delicious!

Yes, only three blocks from the Doubletree Hotel Times Square South is a cool neighborhood cafe with chic tables adorned with lime and lemon water vessels on the table to quench your thirst while you peruse the menu for a perfect breakfast. The alternative jazz and Caribbean sounds will keep you marching back to the Market Cafe!

We had a lovely gluten free meal here. They have a separate gf menu. The shrimp bruschetta was excellent as were the scallops, steak tacos and herb fries were also a hit. GF rice pudding and caramel sauce delicious - great service and nice atmosphere.

Market Cafe was a very pleasant find on our recent trip to New York. My wife wanted dinner, but I wasn't overly hungry - this was a great spot where she could get a full meal and I could snack on appetizers. Food was very good, drinks were good.
