If you want to kid yourself into thinking you are a hipster, by all means, this is the place for you. Average food served up by mediocre and haughty (why? I have no idea), and good looking staff. Most locals do not consider it a serious dining destination. Don't forget to wear either all black or all white.

Enjoy an expensive, below average meal at this uninspired and extremely tired joint. There are many good places in NY, but this is only good if you like to be seen by other people who are also looking to be seen.

Whenever I visit NYC II always try to go to Cafeteria because the food, the drinks and the atmosphere are all fantastic. I find it a very comfortable place to go and go out of my way to have a meal there.

I went for brunch, so that I could try the amazing French Toast (with fresh fruit, of course) AND the famous mac and cheese all in one sitting. Both were phenomanal. The restaurant was well lit and airy and our waitress was friendly and attentive. It was definitely one of the best meals/experiences I had during my trip to the Big Apple, and I would strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to sample some amazingly fresh, delicious comfort food in a fun and relaxed setting.

My cousin took me here for my first time. I had the grilled steak sandwich and a mojito. Both were fresh and delicious. The service was awesome, my glass of water was never empty. I would definitely take my friends and family to this place. One of the best restaurants I've been to in a long time!

I went to Cafeteria for the first time last week and it was nothing but an excellent experience. The waiters were friendly and abundant. The food was good, but the best part of the restaurant is the atmosphere. It is a young and "hip" place to be and is a cool restaurant. I would definately reccomend this to all young people. It definitely doesn't seem like a 24 hour diner, I would have never guessed it was 24 hours, but it is! So it is even more excellent. I will definitely go back several times!

Granted you might as well sit next to strangers because the tables are so close, but I love the drinks and the food. The mac and cheese is fab, and so are the martinis. At least here the waiters don't try to shove you out the door. I love cafeteria.
