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

We really enjoyed our visit to Café 59 for lunch. Perfect location in Allentown, where our son has an apartment. Reasonably priced, large portions, great value! They advertise that you can add a cup of soup for just $1.00 when ordering a hot lunch, but what came to our table looked more like a bowl than a cup. We had... More

I work in the Buffalo-Niagara Medical Camput, and on a sunny Friday afternoon, my boss took us (myself and my 3 colleagues) to Cafe 59. We walked there and back, the first plus about this restaurant - we didnt have to deal with Allen Street parking. This restaurant has a very laid back feel to it. When we walked in,... More

I come to Café 59 every opportunity I can and rarely stray from the "entrée salads" menu because they are GIANT and DELICIOUS. The staff are laid back and recognize the "regulars" which is always comforting. Love all the unique treats and beverages that they sell too! Seriously if you haven't been here yet you do not know what you're... More

We went to Cafe 59 for breakfast. They offered 2 options either of which satisfied us. One was your choice of bread - bagel, croissant, bread for toasting - and coffee. The other was a breakfast sandwich with choice of bread, meat, egg, cheese, and coffee, or $1 toward another drink. The atmosphere was fun! We enjoyed the unusual artwork... More

Went at lunchtime this week. After figuring out where to sit and whether or not there was table service my friend and I both ordered sandwiches off the specials. My friend got a turkey club which was huge and I got a delicious wrap with roasted eggplant, sweet potato & Gorgonzola. The woman next to us had the Mediterranean salad,... More
