We eat here on a regular basis with family including kids. Food is choose to see as many dishes (sandwiches, salads and hot drinks ) are prepared to order in front of you. Our favorites are all the salads, soups, grilled foods, french fries, cheese...fries, roasted chicken, french toast, eggs. Delivery is fast and yummy too. The owner and staff are attentive and happy to help. Supporting a small local business feeels as good as the food tastesMore

Happened to be in the neighborhood and stopped into Benvenuto Cafe on a whim and it turned out to be an excellent little spot to grab some lunch. Sort of a lunch counter concept but I had an excellent panini that was made to order...and delivered to where I was sitting when it was ready. It was extremely tasty and then I was on my way.More

We ate in the cafe several times, mostly for breakfast. The coffee was great and so was the food. We had bacon and eggs, pancakes, muffins at different times and they were all delicious. We also had a philly sandwich and another time we had...burgers 🍔 and 🍟. The cafe was open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The prices were very reasonable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I looked forward to going every day. I recommend it!More

We stopped here for a coffee and sat outside. We watched as people walked by, the weather was warm enough to sit outside. The coffee was good and the place is nice! Amazing how many New Yorkers have dogs!!More

Ate here a few times whilst staying in the area. Deli type place to eat in or take away. I sat in and the food was great. Loads of healthy choices. Good for veggie and vegan too. Nice area to sit eating watching world go...by. Lots of local peeps on way to work. Friendly service , i saw , what I think was the owner come from around the counter and greet two young kids who were with a parent. They must of all known each other , the genuine warmth towards the children was really nice to see. Prices were right to. TriBeCa ain’t cheap...Really nice place...More

Dropped in for breakfast to mix it with the locals. Italian owner who works along his Mexican employees. Bright friendly big personality. The cafe is on a corner with glass on two sides with stools to see the passing traffic. Long wooden tables, an extensive...menu. Eat in or takeaway. Absolutely fresh. The freshest bagels, toasted with lashings of creamiest cream cheese. Pancakes that are so fluffy with maple syrup and whipped butter. (We did the American breakfast thing). And excellent Italian coffee!! Affordable and fun. The sort of Italian cafe we Aussies know in Darlinghurst or Brunswick but American style.More

I was there several times, delicious salads and sandwiches. You can build your own salad and they have really tasty soups! You can enjoy your meal while you’re looking at the streets of New York. Good service and clean place.

Just happened across this place by chance after I'd dragged my wife around the Tribeca area trying to find the Ghostbusters HQ (yes, yes, I know) Anyway, in we went and were blown away by the choice available on the menu boards. After figuring out...where to order what (they have different ordering points for salads, sandwiches, Panini's) we went for a Rueben with sweet potato fires and a meatballs sandwich. They were both fantastic sandwiches! With two cans of coke on top of the sandwiches the prices was less than $20 and we could hardly move after eating the food.More
