“It surpasses excellence!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

I've been going to this restaurant since day one and all I can say it surpasses excellence in food, service, ambiance and more. The best Cubano y sopa de pollo on town. You will not be disappointed at 12:15 p.m. or at 4:20 a.m.

“Great food, great atmosphere and great people!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

From the minute you walk in to the minute you leave, you are glad you came. The menu had a lot of variety without being overwhelming. Everything we had was excellent, as crazy as this sounds the avocado ice cream is a must! The atmosphere was really fun and the icing on the cake is the staff, especially our server (Christopher I think). Don't miss it.

“24-Hour Delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Coppelia is a fantastic diner-style restaurant serving tasty Cuban food morning, noon, and night. The menu has a good selection to choose from whether you're craving a big meal or just a snack or sandwich. We have always had great service here, even when the place gets busy, and it's also fun to try the South American beers on the menu that aren't super common in NYC like Quilmes and Aguila.

We come here for breakfast often and always enjoy grabbing a quick, low-key bite and starting the day with a cafe con leche. Coppelia does get busy both on weeknights and weekends, but we've never had to wait more than ten minutes for a table and just passed the time at the bar. Besides, for the lively but not rowdy atmosphere, delicious food, and great value we'd happily wait much longer!

The only reason Coppelia gets a 4 out of 5 is that the main courses are tasty but a little pricey for what they are. If you stick to ordering a bunch of appetizers, sides, and splitting a sandwich or two, you can put together a great variety of plates to enjoy for not a lot of money.

“Good Diner.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

If possible, I would give 3½ stars. Nothing wrong with the place or food but since I've given 4 stars to better places it seems a little exaggerated to give 4. Had late breakfast / lunch with friends. The mac & cheese we tried was Yummy!
