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

My colleague and I decided that we were tired after a long and busy day, and thought we would not go too far from our hotel for dinner. We have several restaurants in the area that we like and have frequented before, but took a look at Café Con Leche’s menu and decided to try it. What a find! The... More

We came across the Cafe Con Leche on our first day in New York and had a great Sunday Brunch.The food set the benchmark for the rest of our trip and stayed as the front runner for flavor and character. We returned on our last day in New York and had another really tasty meal. They make an orange coloured... More

Dropped in to this little local place because of long lines at our original brunch destination. Upon being seated, we were asked if we wanted coffee. We did. Though it was good coffee, it arrived after too long a wait. Our meal, too, arrived after a long wait and my eggs were no longer hot. My companion's side dish arrived... More
