“Local Family-Friendly Restaurant in Inwood”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

A great place for families in the area. I have only had breakfast, lunch and coffee here, but it was the best place in Inwood. Very pleasant staff and the food was good - pastries are home made and delicious.

“Consistently family unfriendly and mediocre food”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

You can go for a meal, You can go for coffee and a snack, you will not be treated well. Indifferent, uniformed waitstafft, rude rude baristas who do you a favor by serving Luke warm beverages, stale over priced pastries and mediocre food. If you are single, "hip" and are conned that a coffee bar is "cool" and unique in Inwood, this is your place. if you are a family, have kids, want a consistent place to bring guests for a meal, look elsewhere. Unfriendly and hostile to me and my grandchild for the last time. They were the only game in town for years, but Inwood has a new cafe, Darlings, that welcomes kids and grandparents. Go anywhere but here, support local business, but don't tolerate their attitude, it is completely unjustified.

“Excellent informal brunch”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Located in a art deco building near the CU stadium, this is a great place for food before a game.
Fun decor and very kid friendly.

“Where it all started ...”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

The Indian Road marks the location where where Pieter Minuit 'bought' the island of Manhattan from the Lenape tribe, reputedly for 60 Dutch Guilders for the New Netherlands Company back in 1625.
The Indian Road Cafe is a laid-back local bar/dinner that serves good, rather than fancy food. It's also a good place for those who prefer vegetarian dishes. They have quite a range of both light and dark ales as well as lagers, mainly from small American breweries, with the odd European alternative thrown in - try the 'Skull Splitter' form the Scottish Orkney Islands or the 'Dead Guy Ale' from Oregon- they do exactly what it says on the tin.
Some evenings they have live music - if it's a full band it can get a little noisy (the place isn't huge) but still better than the muzak many restaurants pipe through their speakers.
It's a bit of the beaten track, but if you visit northern Manhattan (Washington Heights/Fort Washington, Fort Tryon Park, The Cloisters etc) it's worth the short trip further up on the A Train to 207th Street or the 1Train to 215th Street.
