    French bistro fare for a fair price

    The dining room needs to be cleaned and renovated - especially the bird with the head missing outside. But, if you can order to go - get there Lafayette burger. What a treat! It's filled with caramelized onions and goat chesse and put on this tasty brioche bun -- oh the meat, the meat has parsley inside and is not too heavy for a burger. The salad is nicely dressed. Get the shrimp fritters, too! Specials for half off wine if you can sit in the the average dining room area. A keeper with some improvements/updates needed! It's been there a long time and needs a little facelift.

    Consistently Good

    There's never a wait and I love this little place. Have been there several times. It's especially nice during the summer to sit outside. When you dine in, it feels like you're not in brooklyn. Never had problems with the wait staff. The ravioli is a basic dish, but very good and satisfying. The desserts are great too. I always prefer this more low key place than Habanas.

    Solid local option

    Great coffee, although this is not your bottomless cup - I believe they make each cup individually. I also love the selection of fizzy French lemonades in different flavors - though I usually stick with lemon. The food is good. I stick with the burger most of the time. They spice their meat differently, but it makes for a nice change from burgers at other local spots. Ft Greene has some great burgers! Fries are also good as are the crepes. Sitting outside when its warm out makes for some good people watching and the inside dining room is tiny but cozy.

    rude servers

    we live nearby and have given this restaurant several tries. It is a very small restaurant, and yet the servers seem not to be able to handle it. we were chastised for seating ourselves after waiting several minutes by the door and being ignored. on another occasion the waitress ignored us while chatting on her cell phone a few feet away.

    comfortable, cheap, tastes good

    Panini was great came with above-average greens, not too bitter. Friend liked his veggie burger with goat cheese. Splitting a crepe made a good inexpensive dessert. The atmosphere is coollike a dressed up cave. Probably gets tight at times, but on a recent weeknight it was comfortable. It's BYO which saves you money, but looks like they're applying for a license.

    unexpected treat!

    my vegetarian boyfriend & i were looking for a lunch spot with outdoor seating in ft greene and decided to try cafe lafayette. we were a little hesitant at first because we were the only customers, but apparently it was their first day serving lunch (and by the end of it, three of the four outdoor tables were occupied) anyway, it was an instant hit because the iced coffee was DELICIOUS--roasty and pretty strong. i had an exqusitely seasoned, all-natural-tasting medium rare burger with goat cheese and carmelized onions on a fresh ciabatta roll with salad and crispy, practically still sizzling fries. heaven. he had a panini that was tiny & only okay--he said he'd totally order a veggie burger next time. overall, we can't wait to come back! (plus, there was some great people-watching from our seats outside)

    I'm going back as soon as I can

    I was a little concerned, since there were no reviews and no way to get a sense of what the place was actually like; however, given the menu, I thought I'd give it a try. (Any menu with three types of ravioli deserves a chance, in my book.) I had the goat cheese salad and the spinach and ricotta ravioli with vodka sauce. Both were excellent, and the prices were very good. It's a little cramped inside, which wasn't too bad as it wasn't terribly crowded when I was there. The service was okay; neither exceptionally good nor exceptionally bad. You have to bring your own wine, but they have a bottle opener (not all places do!). Overall, I was very pleased, and I'm already planning a return trip.
