Breakfast was an omelette made to order, coffee and a cheese danish. The food was very good and there were a lot of choices. Prices were very reasonable for the city - about $7 for the omelette which was not small. Fast eating, counter service place. My cheese danish lacked cheese though as it MAY have had 1 teaspoon of...

Cafe Europa is the place we always go when we're ready for some good quality American food. The food is always good quality, fresh, and delicious. Crepes may be our favorite, but there are many good choices. We love the service and the food selection. It is certainly a nice break and has a calm atmosphere in the middle of... More

I loved this place. I used to drop by every other day to hog on the pastas they made. You can make the choice how pasta is made. From sauces to the toppings, they make it as you wish.

Pizza, deli sandwiches, made to order salads, soup, desserts as well as grab and go foods. There is seating on both the main floor and the 2nd floor. Great place to stop while shopping down the road for lunch or a snack.

The Cakes look great when you first walk in and the food looks good in the displays but it was very stodgy and my wrap was stone cold in the centre. Just watch out as some of the ingredients aren't listed on the display cards. Good friendly service though by all the staff!

We stopped in for a few slices of pizza while shopping on Fifth Avenue. The prices were very affordable. I'm a big eater and two slices of pepperoni pizza were more than enough to fill me up. The pizza was great but I have had better New York style pizza in Morristown New Jersey. They have an assortment of sandwich... More

Stopped here for lunch and a build your salad. Base small salad is $3.25. I didn't get too many add ins yet the cost was over $7.50. They charge for each item. Salad was ok. Nothing special. I may give them another shot or look for a better salad place.

Perfect for a quick breakfast/brunch/lunch. Located on Fifth Avenue, so when you want a break from all the shopping, stop here and have a snack.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
