French Roast Cafe Downtown has something for everyone on its menu and seems to be a favorite spot for locals and visitors alike. We have eaten there many times over the past several months.
Bearing a rustic look, complete with French signs and posters, French Roast has charm as well as a great menu, and also has a bar. From sandwiches and salads to cassoulets and other entrees, everything we have ordered has been delicious. For dessert, try the banana cream pie or the apple almond tart!
The coffee is delicious . During the week, French Roast has a breakfast, lunch, dinner, and after midnight menu. On weekends, there is a brunch menu during the day. You can view their menu online--it's accurate. With NYU and The New School right nearby, I would think students, faculty, and parents frequent French Roast. Prices are pretty good for a great NY eatery.
