Came for brunch with family. Friendly service allowed plenty of time to read menu, answered our questions regarding the interesting dishes. Food served within a reasonable time, hot and delicious. Refilled our coffee cups without having to ask.
What a cool little place. What a great meal and they made us feel healthy in the process. Staff was VERY friendly and helpful. Vegan and Vegetarian dishes were delicious with unique combinations that matched perfectly. The chocolate mouse for dessert was excellent. Meat eaters...never fear. Lots to eat there as well.More
My niece and her husband brought us here recently for a midweek dinner, and we were happily surprised. You never know what to expect the first time at any restaurant, but they had already mentioned how good Le Salbuen was, and they were right! It's...a small space by most standards, but that didn't stop the kitchen from turning out some very tasty dishes. We also like the fact that it's a BYOB, and our server made sure everything went well. All in all, a good experience.More
My friend and I found this lovely ‘boite’ on Walnut Street and are so glad we did! The coffee was bold and aromatic. The Walnut Street Salad was fresh and tasty. The empanada du jour was as good as any I’ve ever had in South...America or anywhere else, for that matter. My friend thoroughly enjoyed her poached salmon salad. The portions were generous and the wait staff were professional and very courteous. We plan on going back with our husbands for the Sunday Brunch.More
My wife and I love coming here for brunch on a Sunday. It is also a go-to spot for when we have some out of town visitors. The food is always good and fresh, and the atmosphere is very quaint. Definitely recommend getting there early...as the location is not that large.More
This is one of our favorite spots to stop for vegan breakfast options! The scrambles are amazing, all are full of flavor! The side salad it comes with is the perfect combination, it’s light. We always get the coconut milk French toast, it’s indescribable! I...highly recommend this place, we will stop here every time we visit New Jersey!More
This is not about a review of the food. We have eaten here before and although the service is slow and erratic, the food was good.
This review is about one of the owners. Christina Salierno.
I called April 10th and made 1:00pm reservations for...Brunch for yesterday, 4/21, Easter Sunday. My son and his girlfriend came in from NYC to have Sunday brunch for her birthday and the holiday.
We got to the restaurant at 1:00pm, and it was closed. Obviously, I was very upset. We then had to drive to a diner for breakfast. The alternative was driving around aimlessly, and we were all very hungry. Needless to say, we were disappointed.
Called Le Salbuen this morning. Got one of the owners on the phone. I told her my story, and instead of apologizing right away, she decided to berate me, and yell that all reservations were called to say they were closed Easter Sunday, since they had some kind of family issue.
I told her I wasn't called and was very upset.
Salierno still doesn't apologize, but decides to tell me that I am rude. Then she proceeds to call me an A**hole (that's a quote), and hangs up.
We will never go back to Le Salbuem, obviously, but everyone should know what an unprofessional, RUDE JERK the owner is.
She doesn't deserve any patronage.
I give One Star to the owner, since zero is not an option.More
We had dinner there this weekend with friends. It was excellent. It’s not always easy to find a place with vegan/vegetarian options and gluten free choices as well as dishes for fish & meat eaters. It’s a tiny cafe, but the atmosphere is lovely and...the food is very good. Great loose leaf teas & gourmet coffee selection to complement their delectable dessert offerings. We will definitely be dining there again. Among the four of us, we had tomato soup, 2 different salads, tofu curry, portobello mushroom dish, seafood paella, desserts and tea. We were all very pleased.More
Joined a friend for lunch/brunch. The menu is limited but has plenty of options for the vegan/vegetarian crowd (which we are not). We shared two of the snacks, which yielded a couple bites a piece. For my main, I had the brioche french toast, which...was a single piece, but very good. Overall, this is a quaint place with tiny portions. The seating is very cramped and service could definitely improve, but the menu is fresh and dishes are well done.More
