Big variety of hot sandwiches and wraps, change with the seasons! Also fresh juices are really good. They have a wood stove that you can see your sandwich being cooked.Also large variety of hot meals. Plenty of seating available

We called here for for breakfast - cafe is about a block up from the Sheraton. Not really my type of place - the food and surrounds are all a bit basic.Had two fried eggs, potatoes with skins on and bacon with toast. We ate downstairs. In my opinion there are better places for breakfast in the immediate area. We... More

I was looking for a quick breakfast option while waiting to check into my hotel & noticed this spot. The food is really good (especially for the price point) and the service is fast. Would definitely go again.

Had lunch here with the family and they all opted for the "create your own pasta bowl". The food was fresh and the service was fast and friendly. I would highly recommend this place if you're looking for fast and good food at a reasonable price.

I've been to another location, so I figured I'd walk a block and half from my hoteCafe l. I ordered over the internet, although it has the worst designed website in history. Go ahead -- google Cafe Metro -- if you didn't know it was a restaurant, you couldn't tell from the home page. Only way to find the location... More

Went here for breakfast and they do the best coffee, especially the Lattes. Once you get your head around the way the system works in these American Deli's it's ok, but can be a little confusing if you're used to a sit down and order restaurant. Food was very good and the place was spotlessly clean. Good value but is... More

Our first visit in crowded NY, we've checked several Cafes, this is by far top on hygiene and decency. Vegetarian and organic options available, plus the many many other choices. Casadias, sandwiches, and soups were tasty and and "home like"food. When people love what they're doing they give you the best of the best. Visitors from Saudi Arabia.

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.
