Every time I'm in NYC I try to eat at the Mogador Café. It's is a great Moroccan cuisine restaurant, and it has been in business for quite sometime, now. If you are up to a different menu option, you should try it.

Decent French toast & eggs were nothing special. Would not split bill with 6 at table and no whole milk.

We were here tonight and there was a line outside. The waitress told us it would only take 10 mins. Several 2 person tables were able to enter but our group of 4 had to wait for over 30 mins. Than we were seated at a bench to have a drink and appetizer but we weren't served. The food was... More

We were out on a rainy Saturday night and ended up at Mogador on the recommendation of a friend. The restaurant was very busy but we got a table on the patio without waiting. Our orders were taken quickly and our wine and Roasted Eggplant & Tahini appetizer was delivered quickly and was delicious. For our main courses, we had... More

Mogador cafe does not pride in its looks, but unbeatable with the food they serve. If you love brunch, here is the place that serves great cuisine to satisfy your hunger. I however love the Moroccan dish - lamb with rice. Lamb is perfectly seasoned and slow cooked so that the herb flavors and juices blend nicely. Try mint tea... More

I much enjoy many kinds of food but not very familiar with Moroccan cuisine. A few previous experiences were positive but not memorable. But Mogador Cafe made a lasting impression. Everything we ordered tasted very good and had distinct authentic flavors, in my admittedly novice opinion. I was most impressed with Cucumber Yogurt among appetizers and Lamb Shank Tangine among...

We were recommended to come here by our tour guide. This place did not disappoint. Every dish was magnificent and jam-packed full of flavour. Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable and efficient - she recommended a fantastic Italian wine which was thoroughly enjoyed by our party of three. This was a great way to cap off our final night in New... More

Brilliant middle eastern restaurant. Just as good for breakfast as for dinner. Sit outside if the weather's nice. Always reliable and great food.

Sometimes service just falls to the waist side when it becomes just maintaining the turnover. It's too bad. Breakfast sandwich was fantastic as usual (only served between 11:30-4). My friend's dish lacked. Coffee is always good quality with steamed organic whole milk. Thank you! Hosts were too busy chatting about their boyfriends to say good bye and our server left... More

Favourite breakfast and coffee stop on the LES. Good enough coffee, great fresh breakfast options and mostly friendly staff. I can't seem to go wrong with this place.

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
