It's the Wandering Yank here. Mrs. Yank and I had not been to Cafe Bernardo in 5 or 10 years, but when we recently found ourselves hungry in Midtown, we thought we would give it a try. Good choice! It's a casual place - you...More

We had breakfast here on a weekday. Very few diners so we had the best service: friendly, helpful young woman who anticipated our every need. We had the breakfast burrito, bacon and avocado omelet, pancakes, and seasonal fruit: all were tasty.

Looking forward to an Asian salad with promised carrots, cucumbers etc with the noodles I was served a $7 heap of noodle and minuscule veggies, hardly visible without a magnifying glass. Cute little place with no apparent idea of what a salad contains!

Ate here several time while working at the hospital. Restaurant used fresh ingredients and made fresh. Handcrafted sodas are also a nice touch. Don't be fooled by the exterior of the building. Go in and check out the many items they have to offer.

Friendly service and good freshly prepared food. Soups and salads are great! Breakfast is a little pricy.

Salads with wilted lettuce are the norm here....wet pizzeta....whatever that is supposed to be isn't pizza by any means. This is a loser location.

In the spirit of the neighborhood European café, the Bernardo menu changes with the season. Salads, soups, daily breads, sandwiches, pizzettas, and burgers compliment entrees of fresh fish, steak and chicken, making Bernardo a healthy dinner house with café prices. Lunch and dinner dishes reflect the bounty of local ingredients and the certified green kitchen in which they are created.
