We were tourists with an elderly mom walking with us. It was freezing outside and we ducked into this place to warm up. The server helped us immediately and we ordered. The hot chocolate was perfect and the berry crepes fresh and light. Not a complaint- the crepes are LIGHT, not fattening or oily. I like a lot of fat,... More

Had breakfast here twice and both times really good. Tasty food, quick service and not too expensive. 2nd time was thanksgiving day, very busy but still just as good. Highly recommended.

Had breakfast in here and it was great. Stumbled across it whilst walking from our hotel in Times Square to Bryant Park. It was almost half the price of Evergreen and just as good.

Stopped for some respite from the rain for coffee and a pretty decadent chocolate brownie. There are a lot of offerings that look enticing.

It took me a little while to work out how the system worked to order/pay for what I wanted. Food was ok. There wasn't really anywhere else to eat nearby so it did the job.

Just a really nice place for breakfast or lunch etc, nothing flash, reasonable prices and good service. It where the workers get their lunches, the salads are something else, watching the four blokes knocking them out is worth the visit. We used this place as its just around the corner from the Omni Hotel where we were stayhing

Just popped in for lunch and we enjoyed our food. 3 slices, a coke, a water and a smoothie for $23. Seems about right for NYC.

Ok, it doesn't pretend to be much, but it ain't even that. This what replaced breakfast diners in New York City and now we mourn their loss. Counter staff were polite and efficient though.

Breakfast was an omelette made to order, coffee and a cheese danish. The food was very good and there were a lot of choices. Prices were very reasonable for the city - about $7 for the omelette which was not small. Fast eating, counter service place. My cheese danish lacked cheese though as it MAY have had 1 teaspoon of...

Cafe Europa is the place we always go when we're ready for some good quality American food. The food is always good quality, fresh, and delicious. Crepes may be our favorite, but there are many good choices. We love the service and the food selection. It is certainly a nice break and has a calm atmosphere in the middle of... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
