“Pretty good deli, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

This place has just about everything - from Sushi to Burgers to Soups...Efficient service, food is fresh and perfectly fine. Not the cheapest deli, but hey, you're on 51st between 6 & 7....

“My comfort zone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

I just wanted a few items, quickly and reasonably priced. Cafe Duke was perfect for that; easy to get to because it's adjacent to a marked crosswalk; and the staff makes sure the cashier lines move rapidly.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

This "deli" has wonderful, fresh food, but I found it very expensive. After visiting other place close by, I felt that Cafe Duke takes advantage of unsuspecting tourists, and charges double what other places charge.

“Awful!”

The worst coffee ever tasted in my life and I have drunk a lot of coffee. Surly unfriendly staff! Avoid it!

“Good place to have a breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Good breakfast or light lunch? The sandwiches are very good and, in addition to menu, may be costumized.
There are a great variety of food to carry away
