Went here yesterday & had a great meal as always! I used to go here for lunch after class or brunch with friends.. I recommend the Steak sandwich, with garlic sauce & this spicy orange sauce they have there. Your breath won't make it easy to kiss afterwards but totally worth it! And the prices are very reasonable. I also... More

Too bad we did not find this restaurant until our last day in NYC. Son and Husband had the cuban sandwich. It has been my husband's quest to find the perfect cuban sandwich since we lived in Florida. This restaurant ranks #1 for him. I had the Mofongo or Machuquillo without the pork cracklings, to say it was fabulous would... More

I just loved this place. The food is really tasty and it has a good price. Lots of Latin flavors. The staff is really friendly and this is a great place to visit if you are Latin and is a bit home sick.

We were looking for coffee and tired of the same old outdoor cafes that now seem all the same and you don't always get great coffee. There it was... and in we went. Dos cafe con leche! Perfecto! It brought back memories of the 70's and 80's when we'd go to the corner store and grab a cafe con leche... More

Walked upon Cafe Con Leche while searching for a Lunch place. I ordered the rotisserie chicken. I asked for white meat. They only serve it as dark meat. Really? So in a haste, I ordered a Beef burrito. The $10 burrito was a bit above average. The beans and rice were above average. I would go back an just order... More

Went here for dinner and drink on a Friday. We were able to get a seat outside with Diego as our waiter. He was great, food was fabulous, and the cocktails were delicious. However, my only complaint is the wine I had was horrible. I had 3 different reds...and they were all bad. Just stick to the margaritas and you'll... More

Carlos the waiter so friendly and helpful. Makes great (complimentary) Mamajuana! We went for an evening drink on a hot day. Sat outside. But the food looked so fresh and delicious we stayed for dinner and weren't disappointed. I don't know anything about Dominican food but thus was terrific. Go. I don't think you'll be disappointed either.

First thing to know is that Happy Hour is noon to 7pm every night so that is a whopping 49 hours per week. Cocktails are $5, or as the sign helpfully explains, two for ten dollars. Not sure how much three would be. Anyway, we had two each. The coconut mojito made me wish we'd arrived before 6.30 as two... More

We were hungry after arriving late in NYC and so the hotel desk recommend "just walk over to Amsterdam and pick a restaurant". Resaurtants are side by each, we looked at 4 or 5 and then came back to Leche. mainly because although busy, there was no loud music and no line up. The Cafe is tiny, but intimate. It's... More

This used to be reliable spot to grab a meal. However, the last few times we visited, the quality has decreased along with portion sizes. It is a shame as they used to be a regular destination but now the spotty service and food makes this a pass for now. We would be willing to try again as the food... More
