“Average Mediterranean”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

Good food in an average NYC setting. Communal seating inside. Small tables outdoors are nice. Order at the counter inside, they will bring it to you.

“Thank you!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

"Thank you" is what the neighborhood has to say for Effy's Cafe. Without it, there would be no outdoor cafe to plant yourself with your laptop and munchies and beverages. The big coffee chain in our neighborhood is too small and totally indoors. Effy's offers more space, more to eat, more to drink, and personal friendly service from the owner himself. Effy's cares about its neighborhood because it is invested personally in its neighborhood. Great place for salads, sandwiches, etc. Great place to meet up with friends and make new ones. Great place to just decompress with a coffee or tea. Thank you.

“Pleasant and convenient if you live nearby.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2012

This is not a destination location kind of place. Good for sandwiches, wraps, salads, coffee and so forth. When the weather is nice you can sit outdoors and watch the world go by such as it is on 3rd ave.
