    Hipster Scene with Great Brunch Food.

    So, my friend and I decided to do brunch at Cafeteria. We were definitely glad we did. The breakfast Croissant Sandwich was amazing and the Mac & Cheese Spring Rolls were even better. Definitely recommend this place for brunch. The waiter was pleasant and brought our food out rather quickly. I will definitely be back!

    Not the Greatest Service in the City

    We went to Cafeteria and waited at the bar area for our table (even though we were told we didn't need reservations when we called). The bar area smelled. The sloppy mess of some mystery sauce on the floor at our table was cleaned up only after we asked. Our waiter took our order and did not make another appearance until he rudely threw the check on our table (after we had to ask the busboy for it). We sat with empty drinks and dirty dishes in front of us. If there was a manager, he certainly wasn't supervising. Totally disappointing experience and we vow to never return to Cafeteria. Thumbs down!

    Only Order The Appetizers

    Went here on a Sat night and the ambience was great , however the food was less than average. I tried the spinach and artichoke dip and mac and cheese which were good appetizers but not the best I have eaten. The fish and chips were greasy and not fresh. My friend had the turkey burger and said it was not seasoned or cooked well. I would only recommend this place for a light bite and cocktails.

    I went here one Friday after work for a bit with an old friend. The waitress told me which beers they had, and when I ordered one they were out. This is not a big deal to me and didn't really affect my perception of the place. Anwyay, I ordered the gouda and bacon mac and cheese. This mac and cheese was awesome. It is very very filling, and I really didn't need anything else. However, I had already ordered a burger with goat cheese before I realized this. The burger was disappointing. I ordered it medium and it came out well done and extremely dry. It would have been good if it was cooked right, but it wasn't. All in all, it was expensive. Considering my main dish came out so badly, I was disappointed overall. The atmoshpere is cool, but nothing spectacular. The same goes for the service.

    way too noisy

    I came here for brunch and felt like I walked into a party. Maybe this is great for evening, but when I'm not even awake yet, it's just too much to handle. The food was pretty good, except the eggs benedict (flavorless), but it was a bit ruined by the scene.

    We visited Cafeteria last week. Our food was delish...try the smoked Gouda and bacon macaroni and cheese. Talk about comfort food! My companion had the turkey burger which she loved. The nightly special was meatloaf which a lot of people ordered and looked and smelled wonderful. Portions are huge so think about sharing. Save room for the fried Oreos. The carafe of Cosmos are yummy as well. Ask for Sara as your waitress. She is delightful and could not have provided better or more attentive service.

    Great Spot, Bad Value

    I do not recommend Cafeteria to anyone that likes good food. If it's a nice day outside, and you like to eat decent food, have a glass of good wine, and sit outside Cafeteria is the place for you. Otherwise, avoid at all costs. I have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions, two times for lunch (used to be by the office) and once for dinner with my boyfriend. The lunch menu is decent - simple food, good flavors. The dinner menu is bad. Traditionally simple food that someone has attempted to add an extra 'kick' to - and it fails. The flavors were all spot on, but the preparation fell short. My food was overcooked, his food was soggy. And $13 for a plate of biscuits and gravy is absurd - unless there are truffles in that gravy, a plate of b&g should never go for more than $4. I don't mind spending money on good food, but it's simply obnoxious to spend a decent amount of money on not-so-decent food - especially in New York where there are amazing restaurants everywhere.
