“Ideal for quick bite”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

We had landed six hours earlier at JFK after 20 hours in the air and had tickets for a Broadway show so all we wanted was a decent quick bite when we chanced on this place. Apart from the fact that there were seats, the prices were good for Times Square. Service was a little indifferent but there was nothing wrong with the food. We had the daily soup, seafood chowder, and a sandwich (turkey on bread with poppy seeds and an tasty relish) to share. It was fine if a little salty for our taste. To be fair, we find most food served in the US to be salty. But that did not detract from the overall tastiness and excellent pricing. The coffee was pretty decent too.

“Couldn't get enough”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Because it was so convenient to our hotel and because the bagels were that good, we ate here every morning of our trip! Even ate dinner here once. Mostly just for dessert! Busy, crowded, hard to get a seat, but tasty!

We were in NYC this past weekend to see Cinderella on Broadway. Europa Cafe was right across the street from the theater. The cafe was very clean with pleasant employees. The food was fresh and fabulous! It was also so nice and cool inside considering it was 98 degrees outside! Definitely will be back!!

Ate at Cafe Europa on 7th Ave by central park. Kids asked if we could go back every night for dinner. Great Pasta specials. Made to order pasta, chicken and veggies for the kids. Grandma loved the salad. Great service, awesome food. Hit the spot. But a little pricey. Finally found a place the kids loved without chicken nuggets and french fries!

“Just okay for breakfast”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

The menu says "fluffy omelette" it is more like and overcooked omelette on a paper plate. The bagels were okay. I had a yogurt parfait and the granola was soggy because it was already sitting in on the yogurt. Prices look low, but they add up quickly.
