I really enjoyed the cozy home style atmosphere. Nice hostess, great server and attentive support staff. Brunch on a Saturday; the breakfast items I saw going by looked great but we chose lunch items of Avocado BLT sandwich and a Shrimp salad. Both excellent as were the potato salad and french fries. Excellent espresso and lattes with strawberry rhubarb crisp.

This quaint café has just the perfect "feel" for what you're probably looking for in this neighborhood of Manhattan. Great atmosphere, good food and service. My A-BLT sandwich was good; as was my wife's Tuna Burger.

Beautiful exterior and interior. Very cute and has the NYC village vibe down to a T! Very romantic. Large enough to mean you'll get a table (we went twice and were seated instantly both times), but small enough to feel cosy and like you've stumbled across a little gem... Which you have ;). The food was ohmygod-this-is-so-good. We both had... More

We visited here with a friend who lives in the area for brunch. The food was reasonably priced and tasted great. The staff were attentive and the ambiance pleasant. They were in no rush to move us along, so we were able to sit and talk after the meal which was nice.

I had brunch here with a friend and really enjoyed it. I do have to say the 9 dollar fresh squeezed juice of the day wasn't really worth 9 dollars, but it's Greenwich Village prices. I liked this place.

Loved the decor, and the waitstaff's St James shirts. Good food, nice glass of wine. Mostly liked that I felt comfortable dining alone, not rushed by waitstaff.

This is by far my favorite neighborhood spot - great food, cozy ambience, and delightful staff. They not only serve a delicious dinner, it's also a great spot for weekend brunch or a quiet weekday breakfast. In the evening, we will often go to grab a drink at the bar, but invariably end up staying for dinner. For dinner, I... More

Our son lives in the West Village and he chooses the restaurants when we visit. He and his wife had been here a few times before and he commented that they must have changed their strategy. We started with the charcuterie and the octopus for the table. There was very little octopus along with some lettuce. The charcuterie again was... More
