We liked this place for being just what we envisioned an American cafe to be. Vibrant, busy, huge selection of well cooked tasty food, and good value for money. Offering breakfasts, lunches and dinners, including sandwiches,panini's,pizza,salads plus lots of homemade specials,Mexican plus lots of tasty looking deserts. Well worth a visit for a great value meal.

Our school group had lunch at W Cafe after visiting the Empire State Building. The students and teachers were highly impressed by the variety of offerings from full entrees, sandwiches, salads, Mexican, Asian, pizzas, and even a sushi bar. The service was quick and friendly for such a busy place. The prices were extremely reasonable. The quality of the food was above expectations. I highly recommend W Cafe for a quality lunch at reasonable prices in Midtown Manhattan.

My husband and I ate here for a very late lunch one day as we had such a busy day and realised that we hadn't eaten all day. There is almost too much choice when it comes to places to eat in New York. Saving funds for better things, we had 2 cheese and steak baguettes with fries. It may have been because we were starving but it hit the spot, plus it was very close to our hotel. We returned the next morning we breakfast and had an omelette and a bagel. They literally do everything there and it can be a little confusing how to order and pay for the food. I wouldn't someone all the way to NYC to try this place but I would definitely recommend it for a stop gap breakfast or a "if you cant find anything else".

Amazed that this restaurant is rated so highly.

Went for breakfast and it was just terrible. It wasn't the paper party plates or plastic cutlery or even the abysmal customer service. It was the food. I had a set breakfast of the usual eggs, bacon, potatoes etc and it was shocking. The potatoes were cold, the bacon incinerated and the eggs totally raw. The staff simply didn't want to know or were even bothered. The breakfast came with a coffee and a juice but I had to argue with staff to get them as part of the deal.

Do yourself a favour a go somewhere else for breakfast. Cheap does not mean better.

Since the breakfast at our hotel was very limited and way overpriced, we were looking for a good alternative. Well, this cafe might look a bit off, but don't be fooled by its appearance! The are so many different sandwiches, wraps and paninis to choose from! They also serve eggs, omelets, bacon, pancakes and many more. They also have fresh juices, salads etc. The price is right. You wont be disappointed! My favorite is the chicken club panini, just try it!
