My favorite secret getaway, Cafe Orlin is an international hot spot. I found myself dining with germans swiss italians etc. The most popular and very best dishes are the sunday brunch hollandaise poached eggs! You walk in and Everybody's eatin them!!, served with hearty slices of toast bacon and sparklin rasberry lemonaide with mint oh yum! Its so good there is usually along line of people waiting and it takes a while to be served but because its so packed sunday's. The walnut crusted or asian salmon is good but hit and miss during the week. i miss the smoking section. I love this place!!! great for groups!

I'm a huge brunch person, and this is certainly the best brunch place I've been to. I go every Sunday. Everything on the brunch menu is amazing. i love it.

Great place, Great food equals Great Time. A friend of mine took me there for a steak dinner and I was in love, from then on I have brought countless numbers of people there and everyone has gone back on their own and with me. Plus its in a great area, so there is much to do after you eat.

Cafe Olin is a great find. It's real East Village with good food. The Breakfast Special (M-F) has to be the best deal in town--$4.95 for two eggs (that actually taste like eggs), fresh OJ and a cappuccino--and it's absolutely great cappiccino--puts Starbucks to shame. It's always open and the service is fast and relaxed. This is the type of restaurant that you can only find downtown NYC--interesting crowd, quirky atmosphere and above average food.

I love this place. It's great for brunch, lunch and their breakfast special is a daily ritual for me. If you want a trendy, hip and a place where the occasional entertainers hide out to be a regular person, this is the place. It's in the heart of St Marks and it's definitely a place you will want to meet friends before venturing into the city. Great wine selection and wonderful and cozy atmosphere.

Well actually it's quite big. I've been here a thousand times and everybody I've ever brought has loved it too, which has been a thousand first dates. The atmosphere is very relaxed and just loud enough so you can be a little loud too. Sangria rocks, my favorite are the mushroom ravioli. It's also opened 24 hours on the weekend and has a quaint outdoor area- if you're lucky enough to get a seat there. I love it!

The food is decent, the restaurant is kind of unclean, and the atmosphere is typical of East Village hole-in-the wall cafe. I don't see anything exceptional about the place, I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here again.
