For over 30 years, Café Mogador in the East Village is serving Moroccan and Mediterranean food, morning til night. And it’s no surprise how this restaurant has stood the test of time. They’re serving tasty, authentic food at super affordable prices. The vibe is extremely relaxed and casual, but you still get friendly and attentive service. Sit where you’d like, whether it’s inside their cozy, yet simple, dining room, or at their outdoor patio. 

Breakfast is known as the most important meal of the day, and they’re serving it until 4pm. I love breakfast food, so I had to take advantage. I ordered the Middle Eastern Eggs (two eggs any style with hummus, tabouli, salad and zahatar pita). I love this type of meal, it’s fresh, healthy, and substantial. Each component was delicious, the salad is chopped, with a really nice zesty citrus and oil dressing. You can really taste the fresh parsley flavor in the tabouli, and their hummus is creamy and flavorful. The zahatar pita is also amazing, served warm and pillowy with the amazing Moroccan spices.

Had the chicken tagin at lunch, with a bowl of lamb and chickpea soup, and labne with fresh bread. In the top 3 of the meals I ate in NYC, and will return. Space is also relaxed and represents the tagine culture.

while visiting with family, they suggested we go to Mogador for brunch as they love it there.
they have a $15 special brunch on the weekend that includes a wonderful coffee, fresh squeezed juice and several breakfast entrees. I tried the salmon eggs benedict one day and the next (yes we went back the next day too) time I ordered the goat cheese spinach roasted tomato omelet. They serve nicely cooked home fries and a salad with greens and a bit of carrot. They must spray the greens with a dressing as it is just the right amount...no puddles. They have a few tables outside which is always a plus...they fill up fast which is ok since the inside is a casual space and nice as well.

Heard about it from a friend. Took a guided tour, the guide was bright and full of knowledge about this era. I'll definitely go back for their other tours.

We encountered the restaurant while walking by and were pleasantly surprised. The food was absolutely delicious!

We had the the Goat Cheese & Cherry Tomato Tart served with a small salad followed by the Whole Grilled Dorade Royale. The fish was crispy on the outside, yet delicate and flaky on the inside ~ a Mediterranean dish taken to a whole new level of delectability.

Highly recommended, plus the Mogador offers a tasty breakfast at very reasonable prices.
