Perhaps it is difficult to find the right ingredients for an authentic Hungarian dish in America, which may explain my disappointment on a recent lunch with the side dish called lecso. In an authentic lecso, the main and dominant ingredient is Hungarian yellow pepper complemented with real pieces of tomato. The dish I had tasted like it was prepared from canned tomato with a couple of slices of green bell peppers added; a far cry from the real thing. However, I also had gulyas soup and palacsinta after, which sort of compensated for my disillusionment. I will have to try something else next time :-)

I had a Hungarian gourmet chef grandmother and their food might actually be better than hers (sorry grandma). I go there as often as I can for all of their entrees and I can't get enough of their apple strudel, cherry squares and Rugelach. Even their plain salad and BLT's are amazing. I can't say enough great things about this restaurant. Please don't forget to try their coffee, the best!!! The staff is also amazingly sweet.

1st time found soup and bread terrible, entrees okay, atmosphere great, and desserts terrific. 2nd time (returned for desserts) soup and entrees were okay; but desserts were terrible (maybe because I had just returned from Paris). They were out of prune danishes, the cherry strudel was dry with unappealing taste and texture, and the napoleons (which I hadn't tried the 1st time) were filled with custard instead of the nice pastry cream.

I love Andre's Cafe! They have delicious authentic Hungarian pastries and food. The prices are reasonable for the great quality. I have been to Hungary many times and I live in the UES. Therefore, I am very happy that whenever I crave delicious pastries, I have a place to go near home. Also, their cakes are really sublime. I really like their apricot and mocca cake and their cherry cheese danish.

it's like @ home again (I am here >10 years). I love there "palacsinta" , all kinds, but their cakes are FANTASTIC.

We go there regularly. After Mocca closed there was a need for such a place. The food is great, the pastries are first class. The staff is more than pleasant, they really make you feel welcome. It is always a joy eating there. The layered potato, the cholent (sholet) or the wiener shnitzel are not to be missed.The only one needs improvement is the stuffed cabbage. It is too tough. The owner, Andre is a charming young man who takes great pride in this establishment.
