I had dinner at B. Cafe East last February, and enjoyed the meal very much. Service was fast and friendly, cleanliness was good, and the noise level was manageable.

The corn soup was filled with whole kernel corn, absolutely delicious.

Mussels were plump and delicious, served in their Malay Laksa style, a riff on coconut and curry soup that went very well with two different Belgian beers.

A bit pricey, but the quality of the food was very high.

B Cafe is one of those places we constantly go back to when we visit NYC. It is small, dark, with a nice bar in front. The service is pleasant and the Belgian Steak with fries is wonderful. They also have other excellent dishes on the menu, but the "Steak Frites" is our favorite.

Cozy restaurant, unpretentious with friendly staff really good food. B. Cafe will be a go-to neighborhood spot. The beer selections are impressive with several on tap. Desserts are delicious. Try the Belgian waffles of course! We were there for dinner and plan to return for brunch.

So, we've been going to the B since our friends moved to the UES a year and a half ago. Have taken many couple there and they all love it. Good mussels and frites, good beer selection and good apps (sign says $28 for all on the menu and you get all on the menu for $28)

If Remy is working, ask him anything about Belgium and he turns and rolls down a map of Belgium from the ceiling and proceeds to grab a pointer, the old fashioned wood kind with the rubber tip like your 1st grade teacher had, and gives you a one hour tour of the regions and history of the country.

When our attempt to get into our previously chosen breakfast spot failed, a quick internet search took us to B. Cafe. My understanding from our server is that this location is closing and re-opening elsewhere in the city. You should find it and go. The food was good and the service was excellent. We had our 13 and 16 year-olds with us and they thoroughly enjoyed breakfast.
