Good food to eat!

Cafe con Leche is a clean restaurant and the service very attentive. I used to eat in this place in the past. I am glad They kept the good flavor and Also They added new dishes to the menu. Come and try Cuban, Colombian, Venezuelan and Mexican food. The coffee is superb !!!

I had an opportunity to have breakfast at the new location. I never visited the previous location on the west side but have been told it was very good. The new place lives up to its reputation. It is a small dining room beautifully decorated in bright colors. With the music and the décor they seek to transport you back... More

This is a decent place to grab a breakfast, though it's not a place warranting a four-star average in my opinion. Everything was good, but nothing stood out from other places I've visited. If you are visiting from out of town, I'd select a better place to eat breakfast.

I was visiting NY last weekend and a friend invited to Cafe con Leche Restaurant. I must say I LOVED the place, starting with the cleanliness and the colorful location, the courtesies rendered by the owner Maria Ines and her lovely daughter Sheila were amazing! The food was great, you can taste the freshness in the ingredients used, we loved... More

I visited this restaurant with my daughter and boyfriend. The place was empty. The waitress took our drink order but my drink didn't come until 10 or more minutes after my daughters and boyfriends drink came. I ordered the churrasco (medium well) with white rice and black beans and a side of avocado. My boyfriend ordered the salmon with lime... More

Months ago I was with a friend from California and I took her to one of my standbys: Cafe Con Leche on Manhattan's Upper West Side. While it's not in my neighborhood I'll subway up to this cheerful spot. I usually go for brunch but today I had a full-on lunch--the "sizzling chicken fajita". It came right off the fire... More

Popped into this little bar after an unsatisfactory experience over the road at Hi-Life. Sat up at the bar and had the best mojito I've ever had. It was so good I had another one! Hubby had a beer which I can't remember the name of now, but he said it was good. Would definitely return and perhaps try the... More

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.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
