I really like this place. It's near the promenade for a walk after dinner. You can choose to sit outside on a nice evening. There is beer on tap and a reasonable choice. Food is value for money. Not a huge choice but a really good choice of different foods. Usually a couple of main courses on the specials menu... More

Never too crowded and reliable, standard menu. A great place to meet friends for a leisurely lunch or midday meal. I've only gone on a weekday in late afternoon. Service is great, kind and laid back.

Nice spot. The food was excellent. Sitting is a bit close. If you don't mind rubbing legs we it other male guests it is ok.

This is a friendly and welcoming laid-back cafe where the food is excellent and the staff attentive . Service is prompt without being over-bearing as you may find in Manhattan and it has a nice terrace onto Montague Street which allows you to watch the world go by at a more relaxed Brooklyn pace.

I've eaten there often, nice staff, usually good food, sometimes not so exciting. If you can, order the chicken sandwich to take away. Very, very good always.

This is one of my colleague's and my go to places for lunch. I had salad nicoise which is my all time favorite salad. It was a great salad and I'll definitely order it again. Previously I had omelets and turkey burgers. The first time I had the turkey burger it was fantastic; however, the second time it missed the... More

Sat outside on a beautiful NY afternoon for lunch. Service was quick, food delicious. Gotta have a lobster roll when you're visiting the East coast. Its NY so you sit close to the table next to you, and amongst your tablemates on patio tables.The neighborhood is beautiful to enjoy. Would definitely go back.

This was our 3rd evening of eating in restaurants in Montague St and after the previous two wonderful evenings we had high hopes but sadly this experience was really pretty poor! Our server was polite but brittle, however, there was no gluten free bread and nothing so simple as a bowl of olives to nibble on whilst we waited for... More

In the Fourth of July busyness and hoopla, The Heights Café kept its cool. Wandered in late afternoon for a drink and was promptly seated at a table with no rush to order dinner. The very friendly staff checked on me occasionally. Eventually I ordered mussels in a Thai sauce. Unlike many restaurant mussels meals, the serving was plentiful. And... More

Maybe it's because I'm not from the city, but the food was good, the view was great, but the service was quite lacking at this cafe. Stopped by for a break from the heat, we sat ourselves. A gentleman came over with water and bread, and dropped the menus off. Our server made it over four times, once for a... More
