B Cafe is one of those places we constantly go back to when we visit NYC. It is small, dark, with a nice bar in front. The service is pleasant and the Belgian Steak with fries is wonderful. They also have other excellent dishes on the menu, but the "Steak Frites" is our favorite.

Cozy restaurant, unpretentious with friendly staff really good food. B. Cafe will be a go-to neighborhood spot. The beer selections are impressive with several on tap. Desserts are delicious. Try the Belgian waffles of course! We were there for dinner and plan to return for brunch.

When our attempt to get into our previously chosen breakfast spot failed, a quick internet search took us to B. Cafe. My understanding from our server is that this location is closing and re-opening elsewhere in the city. You should find it and go. The food was good and the service was excellent. We had our 13 and 16 year-olds... More

Let's see, good food, unique menu selections, good service in a pleasant setting. The cafe B has it all. We ate here with a large group, which is the true test of any Restaraunts abulity. They passed. Food was great, waiter was a pleasant guy named Marcus, from Minnesota, who actually brought me butter for my bread, instead of the... More

This place is silly. The food is OK but the bartender told us we were too loud. We were just having some fun just like in any other restaurant or bar in the area. But in this place the professor after the tap told us we were too loud and had to shut up. Very strange, as this place is... More

Great place for brunch with groups of 4 - 8. The classic eggs B was good. My daughter ordered a Belgium waffle. She received only one waffle - pretty pricy for $20. No drinks were inciuded. The restaurant is located in a brownstone where you walk downstairs with outdoor dining. Very charming although at times a little noisy. I would... More

A charming Upper Eastside spot with a lovely backyard garden. The food was delicious with loads of beers to choose from. The staff are very friendly and knowlegable and the hamburger may have been the best I have ever had!

Wonderful Belgian cuisine specializing in 5 different preparations of mussels and 3 types of steak (hanger, skirt and sirloin) each with a special sauce, accompanied with wonderful pomme frites. They also offer wonderful fish selections. Many repeat customers come here for the tremendous beer selection, but they also have nice wines by the glass and bottle. Service is casual and... More
