When we first were seated in the back we noticed a foul smell. During the drink order it got worse so we asked to be moved and we were. There was nothing special about the food and the prices were a little high. The waitress was a little snippy when we wanted to go to the bar for a special... More

Part of the Lessing group of restaurants, consistent service, great wings. Great selection of craft beers, and signature Martinis. Daily specials, and weekly live entertainment.

We always like to stop in for some drinks. The food is about average but the bar atmosphere is fun and worth stopping in. I do with they had more of a better beer selection but overall, always a good time.

Great place to meet for a drink and appetizers. Menu is basic and boring and food is average. We don't come here to eat but we do come here to meet up with friends. Big bar that can get a bit crowded for Happy Hour but it is a casual and light atmosphere. Better off getting a table for drinks... More

Very good bar, with nice selection of drinks and bar food. Nice crowd. Only average as a restaurant to take the family. Good if you are in the mood for chicken wings and other bar foods though

We have been going to the Post Office Cafe since the day they opened! The Lessing Family just gets it right. The food is always well prepared and delicious. The beers, wines, and specialty drinks will keep you satisfied. Restaurants in business as long as the PO Cafe are there because they keep folks happy. If you are in the... More

Great service excellent food super friendly atmosphere. We choose this restaurant because of the location in regards to the church the christening was at. They handled our party of 60 with ease. We chose the Skirt steak which was tender and cooked well and was presented looking like a volcano. It was on its side wrapped around the mashed potato's... More

Like the Roman god Jano, Post Office Cafe has two faces. If you go to the bar you find the former: a full bar, nice setting, friendly barman and great ambiance. You can even ask your food in the bar. It may not be the greatest food, but you can enjoy the bar atmosphere. But if you decide to dine,... More

For over 30 years the Post Office Cafe has been at the center of Babylon Village. Excellent service and outstanding food keep the doors open, as well as a few late night get-togethers among friends.
