I've lived in my neighborhood for a decade, but just found out about Buster's Cafe, a local fave for the last nine years. The food is beautifully prepared and simply presented in a space you could easily overlook...but shouldn't. You can taste the care and quality in every bite.

I adore this cozy beautiful spot. The lighting, decor food and service has been unmatched by any other place I have been to. I have taken the pickiest of eaters here and they have walked out BUSTERIANS! I write this review a tad unwilling for fear they will leave or I will not be able to get a seat next time. They use local fresh ingredients and you can taste it. I went with a party of 7 including myself and we were boisterous when our food came we were all silent savoring every bite! My friend next to me asked to try my mash and I unwilling let her. I wanted it all. What a magical little spot. Try everything on their menu and there daily specials you will never want to leave!

Ever since I discovered this place, I've been coming here, mainly for lunch. I always thought of it as my neighborhood secret. But it's been discovered! Recently I've had dinner there and found it superb. Fidel and Glenn have created a lovely environment (flowers on the table, muted lighting, artwork on the walls) and reservations are now required. Last night with friends visiting from Switzerland had a memorable dinner: lentil soup, dry dock scallops and shrimp in a coconut curry sauce with fereekeh and vegetables, and out-of-this world chocolate mousse with whipped cream and French press coffee.

I was in town from Ohio and my aunt from San Diego when we found the reviews for Buster's online. We were thrilled with the wonderfully flavorful food, cheap prices and exceptionally friendly service. The place is tiny but the food was out of this world! Will definitely be back whenever I am in NYC next.

This is one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. The food is fresh, and healthy but tastes absolutely divine. It is a very small room but has a lovely warm feeling so don't forget to make reservations. Go! You will find your new favorite restaurant.

This is a marvelous place, a little gem tucked away on a down-and-out street, worth seeking out. The food is fresh and healthy and absolutely delicious. It was modestly priced and perfect. The service is warm and friendly. And they slip you a great homemade cookie at the end of your meal. Highly recommend.
