Really good food for a reasonable price, a small place but quick. Eggs, black beans, and the sound of Latin music fill the air. Very down to earth Make sure to have a cup of the Mexican chocolate or mocha that was really good and the perfect way to start your day in the city

Have had breakfast (eat-in chorizo scramble) and dinner (take-out churrasco). Let's face it - it's a small place; it has a spartan decor, but the food is excellent. The portions were more than adequate, the churrasco was perfectly done (I asked for it medium-rare). A nice little selection of baked goods. It's not fancy but it was excellent.

This small cafe was very near the Donatello Hotel. This is a very small cafe with limited downstairs seating and more seating up a stairway. The selections are listed behind the counter. You order and pay for your meal. We had two meals. We had a late lunch on a Wednesday where we ate upstairs in the cafe. The salads... More

This was a great alternative to a hotel breakfast. The Scramble Plates are good value and the service cheery. We're set up for a day of exploring now!

We tried several different items on the menu, along with coffee and hot chocolate. Everything was exceptional. Service was good and fast and they were busy, but everyone got taken care of quickly. Only wish I would have gotten a chance to try the chocolate chip cookies because they looked outstanding and the Russian Tea Cakes. Hopefully next time! So... More

We took a chance on this little place and were happy we did. My steak / tomato / arugula salad was really tasty. Coffee was good too. And you have to love it when you get handed a number to put on your table. At first glance it appears that there are only a few tables....but there is additional seating... More

Been here few time, great place for a quick lunch, located just few min walk from the Union Square. The cafe has free wifi & drinking water, up stairs seating. Food is great - I tried the Cuban Sandwich and Chicken Quesadilla, both were delicious, portions were big and at a good price. The breakfast however wasn't as nice.
