The quality and portions of food here are rare from my New York experience and offer true value. It'd be a great spot to stop for lunch or a casual but tasty dinner. Definitely would recommend it. The floating candles and long community tables are...More

Excellent Asian fusion food near NYU at incredibly cheap prices--especially at lunch and early bird! WARNING--very noisy students and young people make this place a loud happening

This was most likely our worst dining experience during our recent 4-day visit to NYC. It's cheap. Food was average at best. Would not go back,

Wandering through Greenwich Village towards the East Village on a Saturday early afternoon, we were on the hunt for somewhere quick, cheap and cheerful for lunch. Cafetasia fit the bill. It is located in the heart of the NYU campus, and with communal bench-seat tables,...More

I had been here once before and returned when in New York again this year. It didn't disappoint - the service is speedy, the portions are generous, and the food is tasty. It's not really a place for taking hours over your meal and catching...More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
