“The lovely, The Cafe”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Lovely Victorian house provides different settings for diners vs. one main room. Upstairs has a couple rooms perfect for an intimate dinner party.
Good menu selection and the entrees are wonderfully prepared, presented and full of grand flavor.
Save room for the big selection of cakes for dessert to choose from.
We hope to return soon.

“Delicious, and save room for dessert!”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

We don't dine in Bethlehem often, but every time we go to The Cafe, we commit to going more frequently. The homey atmosphere of smaller rooms and soft surroundings makes for easy conversation, the food is always always a delight to the taste buds and other senses, and the service always accommodating, friendly, and effective.

My stir fry of shrimp, swordfish and salmon was just wonderful, and as our family enjoys sampling each other's selections, I can report that the salmon with crab/ginger sauce, and pasta with chicken and basil cream sauce were equally so. A couple phenomenal desserts to share, and a decaf espresso ended the day with a feeling of complete satisfaction.

“Thai Food yummmmm”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This place has both Thai and regular food on their menu and I have eaten there a bunch and I never got anything I did not like. Their food is really good. The restaurant is in a big Victorian house and I love it there. Check out their deserts when you walk in the door to your right. Very good wait staff too.

“We keep forgetting about this place”
Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

It's not in the heart of downtown but close enough. Good food and service. Cool old building and free parking in the back lot. Outside dining in the porch during the summer.

“Just okay”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

I had chicken salad as a sandwich. It was runny any not appetizing to eat or to handle. Soup was just okay. Crowded for lunch. Staff needs more help. But friends have had good things to say...so this is just my opinion.
