we placed a take out order. A salad, polenta wings and a chicken finger sub. When we got home the chicken finger sub had lettuce and tomato on it. There was no blue cheese, onions or hot sauce like explained on the menu. The chicken was dry. I phoned Cafe 59 to let them know some condiments were missing. The... More

Been to this location a couple times for lunch and each time, the food and service was spot on. Their daily soup choices are excellent (and only $1 add-on to a meal). I tried the chicken barley and curry cauliflower - both yummy!! The salmon was great for $12, just a bit disappointed with the minute rice side. The cafe... More

Great lunch spot. Awesome food and great prices. Not only is the food delicious, the portion size is more than fair. Variety of different items from hot lunches to sandwiches. Everything is 10 dollars and under pretty much too.

This cafe served us well as a place to get a coffee, a little breakfast, and catch up with some conversation. It was early in the morning and not very crowded, but neither was it empty and everyone around seemed to be feeling fine (not always the case at that hour). Breakfast stays simple, with an offering of a few... More

Café 59, located at 62 Allen Street in (Allentown) Buffalo, offers up some great food prepared fresh. Very casual with a touch of eclectic! Lunch specials will amaze and never disappoint. We visited this past Thursday October 16th, 2014 and ordered the Falafel and Hummus in a whole wheat wrap with lettuce, tomato, red onion, roasted red pepper and feta... More

Cafe 59 at 62 Allen Street offers a wide array of well prepared food for very reasonable prices. If their tomato-basil soup is available-grab it! While all their soup is delicious, this soup is sublime. Like no other. And if you have a salad, see if the fabulous lemon-dill dressing is available. It is perfect. Now on to the food.... More

We had been on the road a lot and needed veggies. This place is healthy, has a lot of options and has a creative menu. The portions are large and for an organic healthy restaurant the prices were reasonable. They also have outdoor seating Great place if you're a vegan/ vegetarian, gluten free or dairy free

I have driven and walked by Cafe 59 many times but never got around to stopping in. After having an awful time trying to find parking on the Elmwood Strip we decided to try Allentown for lunch. Lo, and behold! There was a parking space (metered). The restaurant is not fancy but is is comfortable with artwork on the walls... More

Discovered this Allentown restaurant about a month ago and have been there three times. Each visit yielded unusual and reasonably priced dishes, and really reasonable and tasty cocktails. Service is friendly and competent. Fellow diners run the gamut of the bohemian lifestyle.

We have eaten here several times when we visit Buffalo on the weekends. The food is always been consistently good. What surprises me is the preparation and quality is extremely good whereas the pricing is modest. We typically order the mussels and white wine sauce. They're fresh. I ordered shrimp and artichoke entrée over rice which was extraordinarily good. Andrew... More
