My husband and I were hotel guest at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in July, and we decided to have all our meals at the Cosmo Cafe. What a great team Craig has, not just at the cafe, but the ice creamery as well. Meals were delicious, well presented, and very filling. The decor was interesting, especially the antique items from yesteryear. As to the owner, well... he is a person who went out of his way to make our Manhattan visit very enjoyable. Craig would sit and chat with us ... he found out we were visiting from Australia. Craig sent us on a tour of Manhattan and New York, even going so far as to draw us mud maps of the area's we were interested in; like the Empire State Building, Ground Zero, Statue of Liberty, and Central Park. He had us visiting seafood eateries in NY, visiting St Patricks Church. On our last night there, he personally took us down to the subway, brought our tickets, and with another mud map, had us visit Brooklyn, .. just so we could see the beauitful night lights of Manhattan. Craig, thank you for a very memorable time in Manhattan, ... we let everyone know what a great host you are, ... the maps are a great talking point. Hope to catch up with you in the not too distance furture.

I can not rave about Cosmopolitan Cafe enough... The food is top-notch (had desserts, pastries, cofee), and the service is a throwback to a grand era where people really cared about hospitality. I live on the UES, but wish this was my neighborhood cafe -- I would be there everyday! I am so happy that I stumbled upon CC whilst strolling through Tribeca. It's worth the commute, and I look forward to my next visit... soon.

Cosmopolitan Cafe is one of the most charming drop-ins in lower Manhattan. It is small and tables are close, making privacy limited. But the environment is exquisitely decorated, full of authenticity and Euro flavor, even though the decor comes from rural America. I've eaten in many European cafes and Cosmo is a precious joy for New Yorkers. The food is very fresh, uncomplicated and nicely served. I've been known to stop for coffee, walking to Soho, just to soak up the ambience. Whatever your mood upon arrival, you will be smiling when you leave. There's almost always a large, seasonal, welcoming display of flowers and veggies, beautifully arranged, to greet you. I'm a sensualist, and Cosmo gets 5-stars for being simply captivating.

Cosmo, as my wife and I call it, is a quintessential neighborhood cafe. It's very comfortable, informal, convenient, and delicious. The owners are extremely accommodating and the patrons are a mix of Cosmopolitan Hotel guests and neighborhood residents. The food, especially the fresh pastries, is outstanding. The service can be European, but in a place this nice, what's the rush?

The Cosmopolitan Cafe is by far one of my favorite places to be in the city. It's charming, romantic, seductive and delicious. The owners go out of their way to provide stellar service. Though it's far away, it's definitely a destination for my friends and me. And it's easy to get to, just take the 1 train to Chambers and you're right there.
