The portions are tiny and prices large, but there is a reason people wait over an hour for a table. It is delicious Jewish comfort food done right, which is increasingly rare.

Great brunch. Try Bobka French Toast, divine noodle kugel, eggs lox and onions great, wonderful coffee and fine service by Alon. Mark was there watching over his family's interests. Don't miss this.

This Cafe has little or no similarities to highest quality of appetizing and the warmth of the "hamish" ambience at the original store on Houston Street: food is just fair and the prices are ridiculously high for ridiculously small portions. Disappointing would be an understatement. Perhaps the only thing that was positive was the lack of lines at 3:00 on a Thursday afternoon. Servers were pleasant, but service was terribly slow. And to run out of borscht by mid-afternoon was unacceptable. Two tiny knishes for $8.00 border on the obscene. I had to plead to have the SUPER HEEBSTER on a bagel, instead of on the bagel toasts, and was ultimately charged $6.00 extra for a tiny bagel. To make it even more insulting, it didn't come close to the size of the bagel, the heaping portion of the whitefish and the fabulous taste of the wasabi when it's made at the store. I'll stick to the appetizing store, and let those who want to be ripped off to come to the Cafe.
