The place is busy, and there is a line outside waiting to go in! The wait was worth it though. The lunchtime menu was varied, but we did think it consisted of a lot of egg based meals. The pancakes are probably some of the best that I have ever tasted. We would highly recommend this little neighbourhood restaurant. The service was also very good.

St. Mark's Street is one of my favourite places in NY and we happened upon Cafe Orlin one evening and made the lucky choice of choosing the Baba Ganoush as an appetizer. What a treat! We nearly cancelled our mains so that we could have more. We went back during the late afternoon another day and I had the blueberry sorbet, delish! I will definitely be going back.

I hesitate to again recommend Cafe Orlin - it's already so very popular, particularly on weekends.
This is a great place to start your day - catch a subway to Union Square and walk, or if you're on the 1,2 or 3 get out at 14th and take the bus across town to 2nd and walk south 6 blocks. The cuisine is middle eastern. delicious options including some weekend only specials, the coffee is really good too.

This is a great little neighborhood restaurant. The food is very tasty, the prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is pleasant. The night we were there we waited awhile for our main courses, but it was worth our time.

We were a group of 8 wandering the East Village for a place to have breakfast on an early Saturday morning, and we headed to Cafe Orlin after a local stopped and recommended this place to us. When we arrived around 9:30 AM, the place was virtually empty, so we were seated right away and our food arrived promptly. I have to say, I was very impressed by both the service and the quality and value of our meal. There was a set brunch menu available which allowed us to have a drink of our choice in addition to our meal for $15.00, per person. We sampled each other's meals, and the Eggs Benedict and Challah French Toast were absolutely delicious! When we left around 10:45 AM, the place was packed and there was already a line out of the door. Come early and you won't regret it!
