Cornelia Street Cafe
Posted by West Village is Hungry on 10/29/2005
I ate brunch here. It was mediocre, and the portions were small. I order the quiche, my friends ordered the 2-egg breakfasts. Everything was presented and tasted like the food I cook at home. Which is not something I want to pay for someone else to do. The service was okay, not noteworthy. The only part of the meal that is worth mentioning is the ham steak, delicious. other than that, I'll never go back. There are plenty of other restaurants that are far superior.

It was magical finding the charming Cornelia Street Cafe. The street is only one block long and has no less than 7 seven restaurants. There is a delightful red and white striped awning with outdoor table reminiscent of European cafes. The food was delicious. I had a vegetable and goat cheese omlette and my friend had granola with fresh fruit, . It was a lovely summer morning and the perfect spot.

My roommate and I live in the neighborhood, and this used to be one of our favorite brunch spots... until we went last week and had the most appalling service either of us have ever had. The food was fine, and even the fact that they messed up small details of two orders (one drink and one side) was okay. It was only when a waiter spilled hot water on us, our food, the table, the floor, etc., that things began to go awry. Mostly, it was the fact that he walked away without so much as apologizing, much less attempting to clean everything up. When we asked another waitress for napkins and explained the situation, she too seemed more annoyed with us than concerned with what happened and the lack of apology. Needless to say, the experience has dampened our enthusiasm for the food... we'll be brunching elsewhere from now on.

I've eaten here several times and was very pleased with each visit. The food has always been great, and there are always vegetarian options. Not the best deal around, but very consistant food in a very comfortable surrounding. The soups are always tasty and creative. Great for brunch, too -- try the chocolate bread! The atmosphere is very European-style cafe -- very bright and airy out front with a cozy homey, back room. The bar has a few nice beers, and the anti-Bush martini list cracked us up. Take a look at their live events as well. They have some type of performer every evening (I think) downstairs in their cozy loungy club/bar.

I have eaten at this restaurant several times, and it has always been a pleasure. The atmosphere is very calm and quiet, always very artistic, and the service is prompt, courteous, and considerate. It's especially nice in the summertime when one can dine alfresco out on the street. A definite place to try.

As four London girls visiting NY, we chanced upon this restaurant whilst searching for another. We waited about 10 mins for a table on a late Friday evening and had a lovely meal in a really relaxed atmosphere at a good price.
