Beautiful place, my daughter was super excited, everything was beautiful, the table, the food, the service. They gave her a cup for the doll, the napkin holders was hair bands you can take home too. Food was in good portion ad taste. 20 dls per person, well worth it

This was an adorable adventure. Environment, staff and food were excellent. We went for brunch and loved the cinnamon buns that they started us off with. We were able to keep the cute hair ties that they used for the napkins. My daughter chose an American Girl to sit with (you could bring your own). The waiter was super friendly.... More

Great experience for my 6 year old. We did brunch and then shopped the store. It's a magical place with play vignettes worthy of Broadway sets. Super fun must go for girls.

This place is magical. Once you have purchased your doll, you visit the restaurant where they provide a little highchair for your American Girl! The meal is a set menu but the quality is good and well thought out. All refreshments (apart from alcohol) are included in the fixed price too. My daughter LOVED the shop and the restaurant and...

This was an experience... the staff was excellent, the food was fair-to-good, price was reasonable (for the birthday special), and there were extra gifts for the birthday girl... and a high chair for her doll!

I took my daughter here as a treat while visiting Manhattan to get a new doll and have the cafe experience. It was very good and I found value for money! The food was good, my daughter is lactose intolerant and they went the extra mile to make sure she had good food and served up pretty, just like the... More

My daughter and I enjoyed the experience very much. If you don't bring your doll, they have dolls you can borrow. They serve multiple courses that is very child friendly. Although it is a little expensive, it is worth the experience. You must make reservations ahead of time (day before worked for us) because they have limited seating and very... More

I recently offered my six year old daughter brunch at the American Girl Place Cafe in NYC. The decor is all flowers and very geared to little girls and their dolls. We were seated immediately at our reserved time. They starts you off with an appetizer of mini cinnamon rolls. Warm and gooey deliciousness! My daughter selected the pancakes and... 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.
