This is one of my favorite restaurants in NY. The couscous is unbelievable and the place is so cute!

Cafe Gitane is one of my local favorites, though I tend to go there for dinner on a weeknight as opposed to the brunch/weekend rush! Very quaint inside, totally affordable and DELICIOUS food...get the Moroccan couscous with chicken and you will be very pleased!

Cafe Gitane...I think that is the correct spelling....is a must see when visiting the soho area. They coffee is by far the best I have had in my travels (by espresso shot, made each cup to order by hot barista). If you go to eat you cannot go wrong with their coos-coos served by energetic foreign wait staff. -Lisa

I went with a friend on a Friday and we were charmed! The food was delicious (she had the meatballs, came in a tagine. i had the eggplant with i think 3 different tapenades). For dessert, bread pudding and tea. Prices were reasonable, service was attentive. It's small inside but i think that's part of the appeal. Lots of attention paid to the decor; even the restroom is lovely! I'll definitely be back.

My fooding partner Tiffany and I decided to give Cafe Gitane a try. While small and relatively crowded, we were seated almost immediately, and while it took some time to be asked what our orders were, once this was done the food came out quite quickly. We shared the goat cheese and pomegranate syrup appetizer, a dish which revived my recently destroyed love for pomegranates (I had overdosed on them at one point), and each had the chicken mango sandwich, which was served open-faced. Admittedly, as a college student, I believe $9.50 to be a bit much for a sandwich, but I was not disappointed in the least by its taste. I'd definitely return to try the couscous.
