This is in the main building on Ellis Island. It is self service but it was prompt. We had a burger and it was very good. The prices was reasonable considering it was at a tourist location. There was a nice area to sit and eat inside in the A/C.

Its costs around $13-15.00 per person to eat. Cafe is inside on the right hand side of main building. The lines are ambiguous and the seating is limited. The cafe is loud and bustling during the day. The food was good though (a little above average) .

Was awful. Asked for a coffee and they passed me my food. Had to wait at the counter for my coffee which took ages the time by that time had food was cold. I ordered a panini. They reheated it in a microwave, it was soggy and the worse meal i had in new york.

We were hungry and what a treat to eat in the same room the immigrants ate in, at tables designed after the tables actually used. Even having Salad for Breakfast was fun!
