I love coming to Antique Cafe on 26th and 6th. It's very friendly atmosphere and helpful staff never disappoint me. I'm not an easy customer, I can be difficult and demanding, and they are pretty unflappable. The best are the brunches on Saturday morning/early afternoon. Eggs Benedict with salmon are always good and filling. My only complaint would be using better bread and a better side salad. Coffees are always great, music is soothing and makes you forget for a while that you're in New York. The restaurant itself is a small space, but well lit, and elegant. A good enclave of artists, dancers, writers, musicians, and actors can be spotted here at any given time, if your eye is sharp. Not cheap, but not overpriced either. SO WORTH IT.

My boyfriend and I were in Chelsea and wanted a quick bite. We were considering Hill Country on 26 St, but it was crowded and it was getting late, so we decided on Antique Cafe across the street. Outdoor seating is charming, but the food was subpar. I ordered the crab cake appetizer, which was rubbery and had no visible crab. Mostly bread crumb based, and $12! Boyfriend had rhe steak frites, better than the crab cake but very salty. Fries msut have been reheated, greasy, rubbery and SALTY.

I ordered Pasta Shells with Tomato, Mozzarella, Basil from the menu pages online menu ($8.95) — I got a bucket of Penne with Pesto ($10.95). That's it. Just some flavored noodles that probably cost them $.75. SO not worth it.

The sweet and charming atmosphere of this cafe is deceiving for the actual experience of the food and service. As one of the few lunch spots in the area my work colleagues and I have given Antique more than enough chances. The least expensive choice is a cookie for $4.00 and a pre-wrapped turkey sandwich for $7.95 and from there the options are from 10.95 and up. The workers are slow and disgruntled and nobody ever smiles. If some fundamental changes were put in place, my colleagues and I may consider returning.

Too bad the food isn't just a little bit better. The egg sandwich came with cooled muffin, overcooked and tasteless omelet. The pastries, which are brought in, are much to be preferred over anything they cook. But it's quiet, sweet, and they're very nice. A very good place to meet a friend for a leisurely coffee and chat.

This cute spot features outside tables under umbrellas in a courtyard that is actually a really nice place to eat. This area of the city is so crowded and noisy that it was a surprise to find "off street" outside dining. Interesting drink selection beyond the ususal sodas and water offered. No table service - you go in first to order and bring your food out, but there was an interesting and varied selection of freshly made food that tasted great. .

Antique Cafe has its own signature making hambergers. I like the burgers here. Each is made specifically to order and the cooking process of the patties results in some pretty great tastin' burgers! and check the breakfast are wonderful and very tasty
