    Just don't make them like they used to!

    Certainly a legend of the theater world. This has been my consistent "go-to" spot for the better part of 2 decades! The matzo ball is always a hit. No one else comes close to the blintzes. Of course, it has its blemishes, but there just isnt any place left like this place!

    Classic New York

    Great place with good, no frills food. Used to be the main dining room for the hotel back in the day--now a strange mix of architectural grandeur and coffee shop chic. Check it out.

    Good diner good, great value!

    The Edison is my favorite place in all of NYC, and I feel the same way about Cafe Edison. It's nothing fancy or frilly but it is great diner food that fast and well priced.

    Real Food not a Tourist Trap

    Love the place. Been coming since I was a little boy, now bringing my son and wife. Great food, Great staff, Great prices. Just be careful they like to incorporate the tip into the check. Other than that get a bowl of matzo ball soup and take a trip back to a more simple NYC.

    Pretty bad

    We walked in and instantly saw plants in empty Paint buckets, employees speaking in Spanish (which made me feel very unwelcome and we weren't even greeted.), paint peeling of the walls, and a 6.00 minimum fee per person. Trust me, that's the ONLY way this place must still be around suring this economy. (the 6.00 min. fee) Okay, atmophere can be a turnoff but the food might be good. No. Then we ordered. The food was anything but good. I do not reccommend this place. We had to pay a minimum of 18 dollars (there were three of us) and it was not worth it. (In fact we ended up paying more than that) which orginally would not be bad for Manhattan but still, I felt pressured like I could pick what I wanted to eat. Don't waste your time or money.

    Great Unknown Place to Eat

    We loved this place it had a great atmosphere and best of all was fast efficent and just what we were looking for. I heard about it and I was not sure it would be as good as it sounds but it exceeded my expectations. We had 4 people and 3 of us had the roast beef sandwich and we all thought it was the best one we had ever had. The fourth person was also very pleased with her meal. If you are here i reccomend that you check it out it is also in a very convinent location.

    This is real NYC

    I recently took my mother to NYC for her birthday. (We're from Queens originally). Since we stayed at the Edison Hotel (and a choice we were VERY happy with but that's another review...), we ate breakfast, lunch and one dinner at the Cafe. It was like coming home. The food brought back memories of what we were used to, the atmosphere was true NY and I don't know about the negative comments about the staff as we found them professional and polite. But the food is the real story. Let's put it this way, we also had dinner at a "Celebrity chef's" restaurant and we wished we had just stuck to the Cafe instead. My mother was in heaven with the soups, mushroom barley and matzo ball both scored BIG with Mom and I'm craving their potato salad and reuben. If you want excellent, real food at a great price, then run don't walk to the Cafe Edison.
