    Adult mac-n-cheese

    My first time @ Cafeteria was great. I didn't know what to expect @first glance so i kept it kind of simple. I ordered the mac and cheese w/ bacon and country fried steak. My entire meal from start to finish was amazing. But, let me tell you, the MAC-N-CHEESE was the greatest i have ever had in my 24 yrs. I really think I had my first food orgasm that night. Thanx Cafeteria for a wonderful night! xoxo

    Yeah, it's hip, but...

    ...Give their blueberry pancakes a try. I can't help but get 'em every time I go to Cafeteria. My other half gets the cheese grits, and they're good too. It really isn't the type of restaurant middle-American tourists with their two kids would be seen in. Wear your two-sizes-too-small t-shirt and your Gap jeans and you'll be guaranteed a decent table and decent service.

    My spot for good comfort food

    Whether it's a really late night out or an afternoon bite, I always come to here to satisfy my craving for something simple and good. I know there's so much to choose from, in New York particularly, but Cafeteria provides great simple home cooking. The pumpkin bisque is really good, a nutty aroma blended with the sweet spicy notes of pumpkin and their Mac and Cheese! It's sooo goood!

    Food is great, but...

    You know, I like Cafeteria. I've never had a meal there where the food wasn't good, even better than good. The service can be a little off, in that sort of "you're not trendy enough to be here" kind of way, but I can deal with that. What I can't deal with is the fact that the tables are too tight. Period. I say this as someone who designs restaurants as well as a totally ordinary sized human being. I'm not in any way a large person, but in trying to *squeeze* out from the banquette wall against the back, I dumped a drink into my lap. Forget this place if you're anything larger than supermodel thin unless it;s WELL after peak hours. I get that they're trying to get the most people they can into the space they have to maximize profits. But it's *just too tight*, particularly on the back wall (not to mention the tables are too small, but that's a problem at almost every restaurant in the city) I recommend this place HIGHLY at off hours. 3am? SURE! 8:30 in the morning? Great! But avoid the lunch and dinner hours at all costs. It gets noisy, and uncomfortable. The food is genuinely good though, and the lychee mojito is something completely worth your while. Hopefully you don't get a waitron who treats you like you're a bother to his/her day because you're not trendy/fashionable enough for them but the food is worth even that small hassle.

    Had a wonderful dining experience

    My sister and I took a trip to New York, were doing some shopping around 5th and 6th Avenues, became hungry and ran into the Cafeteria Restaurant. We wanted to satisfy our food craving the night before after clubbing but it was packed and the wait was too long (as we were told that it is a very popular restaurant, therefore always being crowded). So this particular day we read the menu and we were sold. There was a nice crowd, but we were seated (party of two) right away. Our waiter provided nothing but excellent service and he was very knowledgable concerning the restaurant. We are Miami natives and were totally oblivious to the fact that there is a Cafeteria right on South Beach. Thanks to our waiter we know now. The food was excellent (Maryland Crab cakes and Croissant French Toast) and the prices are reasonable too. The decor and ambiance is nice; so Miami-South Beach. The only thing missing is the water. Will definitely be trying the Cafeteria back home. Had a wonderful dining experience.

    Great Service Great Food

    Went for the Sunday brunch. Nice selection, big portions and extremely friendly service. This place is always packed but worth the wait.

    Try the food

    I always order take-out, so the only staff I deal with is the bartender who is always friendly. Try the BLT, the burger, the mac-and-cheese or the turkey and mashed potatoes. Decent prices - $9.50 for BLT and LOTS of steak fries.
