“Beseder”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2011

Nicely located, the menu is rather small and not exciting at all, the bakery is good.

“If this is number 1 in Tenafly.....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2011

We walked in and were greeted with stares and a lack of understanding the question....where is the hostess stand. A 4.50 beverage was served in a plastic cup vs the glass and we were indoors. We never saw the waitress but one time and no one seemed phased by the bird flying around either. No thank yous upon leaving.

“Amazing coffee, service, and atmosphere. Highly recommended.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2011

Cafe Angelique is so good. Not only does it have great food and service, it also provides live jazz music on weekends. The ambiance is very cool and the European style and paintings are a pleasure to look at. I am a big fan of their soups and salads. There is a wide variety of pastries to choose from, so you are guaranteed to find what you like!

“Very decent food, but always uneven. Horrible, slow, rude service.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2010

I have to chime in as I see the last review for this place just overreaching beyond belief ! This is a very very pretty, well-situated cafe with nice outdoor seating, a wide array of coffees and desserts and a well-written ladies-who-lunch-on-salads menu. I have been here at least 7 times, and every time the experience is the same; careless and unschooled food preparation ruins at least one thing you order, and the wait staff could not be slower, less customer- oriented or more poorly trained. For example, you will order a delicious cannoli, and the pastry shell is stale and wet. Your prosciutto pannini comes stuffed with the heel end of the meat tougher than a shoe. Or one major ingredient in your salad will be off-tasting and possibly rotten. The staff are all foreign, and very young. I hate ethnic generalizations, but every single person (12-15?) I have discussed this place with makes the same comment; the culture represented here is different from the USA's. They are brusque and loud and come off unfriendly and even rude!!!! The waiters here do not say hello, look you in the eye or smile. They take their damned time with your menu, your orders and your food, and your check and they make dumb mistakes. No one is telling them to shape up or improve. Think sullen teenagers with cool/bad attitudes as wait staff. Last but not least, it is pretty pricey. You will leave, time after time only 75% satisfied at best and wishing these people would get a real clue about what American diners expect at this price point. It's a pretty disappointment, and really very ordinary given local/ NYC standards.
