We went for Brunch. From the moment we got there the reception was very good. The wait wasn't crazy (20 minutes). They took your number and sent us a text when our table was ready, so we could go for a walk instead of waiting. The place is tight and bustling with food noises and with servers running around, but... More

It's such a pleasure to be in a wonderful cozy space and still have plenty of room to dine and have a great time. The service is outstanding and, of course, the food is really good. The wine list is well thought out with some very nice variety.

Had to wait 20 mins for a table as they were super busy but pretty efficient turn around of customers and very pleasant staff. The brunch menu was really good and the food was great. Service was relatively fast and a really nice buzz in the restaurant.Made a mistake in mixing our orders with our neighbours but all handled very... More

Last week when it was pouring rain around 11AM, I stopped in here alone to dry off and grab a little lunch. Right away the staff's kindness stood out, all of them seemed to be on par with each other and they were always smiling. The place is long and narrow (sort of broken up into two parts) but it's...

We live in the immediate neighborhood but had only been to Cafe Cluny for breakfast and lunch as their prices are somewhat steep. We recently learned that they have a pre fixe until 6:30 for a 3 course dinner for $35. Not exactly a bargain but this we thought was doable. So off we went. My appetizer of artichokes and... More

Great cozy and charming place. VERY spendy. Went two nights during our recent NYC vaca, and on the first night, were seated in the room farthest away from the door, which we found quite like being in a cozy french bistro. Ordered a cocktail called Spring Awakening with St. Germain, fresh grapefruit juice, and champagne, which was very nice. My... More

Went there for my 30th birthday brunch. Service was super friendly and the atmosphere is very nice. Very comfy and fits perfectly into west village. The food was excellent too, especially the deserts. If I were to give one suggestion, having some more/different brunch options would be nice.

Excellent neighbour café with great menu & ambiance. The food was superb (so much that we visited twice in five days) and the service really attentive. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend

What a better way to have lunch in New York is to head to Café Cluny on the corner W12th Street & 4th Street in the Village. It is great place to meet friends, have a drink or two and enjoy an enjoyable lunch. They have a range of salads and other lunchy dishes you will enjoy eating. You will... More

Very cute little place that does a great brunch. The eggs benedict are one of the best in NYC and they do a great mint leaf tea. We usually try their juice of the day which is always a well thought out and tasty treat. Well worth a visit.
