Don't bother with Market Cafe

This place is truly awful! It smells and is depressing and has poor service and is located in a terrible neighborhood.
A great soup on a VERY COLD DAY

Went on a very cold day and the server suggested a red pepper soup. It was a great choice as was the French Country salad. The lunch was ended with the warm apple spice cake which was just the right finish. Would definitely go back.
middle of the road, but that's not good for new york city

i went to market cafe last night in search of a good meal and a comfortable atmosphere for dinner with my mom. the place was cute but a little run-down. the food was not bad but not great - and with so many great options in the city, that's not good news. i find it hard to find an above average restaurant in this neighborhood but will keep looking!
A dining delight night or day

When I asked a longtime Brooklyn resident for dining recommendations near a loft I was renting in Midtown, "Market Cafe" was high on his list. Our Brooklynite connection had told us "The Market Cafe chocolate cake is the best chocolate cake I have EVER had." I'd like to say "ditto" to that review and add my own descriptor of "it is to die for". The quality and size is phenomenal and at a most reasonable price. Although the restaurant was extremely busy, the owner made a point of being welcoming and attentive. The experience was so pleasant that I made a point to return for lunch the next day. After an easy stroll from Times Square, I ordered a grilled steak, fries, and the house salad. Excellent! A slice of pumpkin cake to-go was saved for a post theater treat that night. Yummy!

The French Country Salad was huge, fresh and one of the tastiest salads I have ever been served. The crunch of the walnuts, the huge serving of cheese and smoked chicken, and the fresh greens and endive made for a filling and nutricious salad.
Nice and simple
