The food is mostly redone comfort foods. Many are good, but they are not all "just like mama" made. The macaroni and cheese is highly recommended, as is the country fried steak with homemade gravy.

This is my new favorite restaurant in NY. Since my first visit a few weeks ago, I have been taking all of my worthy friends. Brunch is to die for. Order the silver dollar pancakes as an appetizer so that you can also order egg dishes (skip the omelettes and go for the crabcake benedict or veggie tower). And/or consider getting the mac 'n' cheese (best in town) to share with the whole table...everyone will want a bite and at these prices, why not? For those of you who like to dine with the stars...I had lunch last weekend at the table next to Hugh Jackman. He had to host the Tony Awards later that night so it's clear he wanted a fabulous meal to put him in a fabulous mood! Cafeteria is just the place (can you tell its my new favorite???)

The service can be frustrating as if the place is busy, you may wait longer than you'd like to. But they do have large, good salads, a nice selection of brunch, lunch and dinner dishes at affordable prices. You'll find things like salmon hash along with omelettes, sandwiches, etc. In a neighborhood short of decent places to eat, Cafeteria is a good stand-by, a place you'll find something you want even though the help is clearly not professional. But it's better than the fast food places and you can sit and talk, end up shmoozing over a latte and be fine.

Glorified diner goes Style Fab crazy in this all too fabulous neighborhood were the staff is so fabulous and wonderful they might forget about the other people in the world. The unprepared raw ingredients sitting in their warehouse all clamour to get a chance to be scene and served at this hot place. Even the food served begins to feel fabulous even though it's very ordinary. Who cares if the food is either too hot or too cold or too salty your simply fabulous for coming here in the first place - and that's the most important reason for eating at this place. Of course your politicaly correct and yes, fabulous! After all, who eats nowadays anyway...right? Get the idea?
