Cornelia Street Cafe

I went here for brunch. The cafe is very cute and the atmosphere is lively. However, the food was only a little above average and the service was extremely poor. I waited at least thirty minutes to receive the change to my bill ($15 for a $40 bill). It took me 45 minutes to catch the attention of a waiter (after very obvious eye contact and hand motioning).

This place has some of the best food in the city but is almost not worth bothering with for the poor service. It took us almost 2 hours from being seated to eat and get the check. Our waiter seemed to disappear after he took our order while we watched tables that had been seated after us receive and finish their food before ours came.

I've been here a number of times and have always found it excellent. The decor is very cozy, making it ideal for a date or intimate dinner with friends. The sandwiches and eggs are great, as are dinner items like their fish and steak,. Very reliable, you won't be dissapointed. The mussels I had there once were awesome.

The pre-fixed menu on V day fell so much below our expectations. Certain items on the menu were not even worth mentioning due to their taste and of course size. The appetizer I ordered was missing one of its main ingredients. The main dish wasn't any better. I had to send it back to be cooked more as the meat, though ordered medium done, felt like it was barely in the oven. The service was rushed. The only good thing was the wine, I guess because it was not included in the pre-fixed selection. When we left the restaurant, I felt like we were robbed. $145 (that includes a tip of $20, which my boyfriend left out of the goodness of his heart).

A lady on the street suggested we go to breakfast here--she said it is her favorite spot, so we decided to try it. The cafe has a very cozy atmosphere. We went this morning--right in the middle of the blizzard. As we sat in the dining room, we watched a man and his dog play catch out in the small street and other restaraunt owners shoveling the sidewalk! My husband and I both ordered Huveos Rancheros and thoroughly enjoyed them. The service was fine--nothing too special. The only thing that would deter me from going back were the prices. I didn't think they justified the food. We payed $4 each for a wine glass full of OJ. Our eggs were $8, which was ok, and the side of bacon was $4. Beside the main dish, I thought the rest of the sides were over priced.

I ordered the duck confit over the beet salad. It was a generous portion, delcious, and fairly inexpensive. My mother is a chef and used to cook duck confit all the time, so I've had my fair share of it, but never with beets! I highly recommend it. And has a cute, cozy atmosphere.

On my quest to find the PERFECT eggs benedict in NYC, I was so happy to find them here! The coffee is excellent too! :)
