They have the best sandwiches and soups. Everything from coffee to great ice cream! It WAS my spot when I lived in NYC and when I go back everytime I visit!

I live on the block, been there a 1,000 times, food is great, sometimes the pace is off (i can understand some reviews), but its just like most humans that have not been converted to robots or chickens or robot chickens. They are mom & pop, and have some refreshing character. Swing by, say hello to Bill, he'll talk economics, flowers, or whatever...they know what regulars like to eat, the same dish is not always the "same dish", and they remember your name, have fast delivery, etc... Go to subway if you want to save a dollar at the expense of plain vanilla mediocrity or the ability to communicate.

I don't understand why people are so needy of "customer service". the place is great, the food is fantastic, it's cheap. what more do you want? it's a restaurant, not a politically correct convention of pleasantness. the sandwiches and soups are just perfect, so is the price. go in, eat well, spend less, enjoy.

I fell in love with this place. The food is fresh and good and really affordable. During my visit to NYC, I made this my place to get lunch every day while staying in the LES. The neighborhood feel of this place is awesome. It was ideal to hang out and enjoy a great meal and plan my day's adventure. They played 60's music in the background, which I really enjoyed. I enjoyed chatting with the locals and being treated like a regular instead of a tourist. Overall, this place was a score to find.

I have to agree with the reviews below. I live down the block and have been somewhat turned off by the customer service, but the food is worth going back for. It's not that they are consistently rude, and I know we live LES and it's a bit slower paced down here.... but I feel like I'm back in South Florida stuck behind an old man on the highway. They are truly at their own pace and I guess it's something to get used to, but the food is great.

The food is awesome. They need to work on their customer service. I think every customer needs to be greeted upon entering but thats just me. The sandwiches are delicious... especially the experience and the revolution. Great food all for under $10... cant beat it. They could try keeping the floor a little cleaner though. Definitely will be coming back on a regular basis.

can the staff at flowers cafe be more miserable? the lady in glasses (whom i think is the owner) is so unfriendly. she always looks pissed off or annoyed that you want to order something. such a strange vibe. food is just ok. no frills sandwiches and salads. i pretty sure they use canned soups and bottled dressings though. never understood why people open up restaurants and just do minimal to pay the rent.
