I love this place. Not only do they have great coffee and fresh food, but the staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. I come here frequently and it's a great atmosphere.

When you get tired of sleuthing around the nearby antique stores, revitalize those bargaining skills at this quaint caf. Antique hounds love to pop in and gloat over their latest find, while enjoying the fresh sandwiches and beverages available here.

Their food was amazing specially the cheeseburgers. They have variety of food and were delicious. Their service was all great!

Simple review: just the BEST cheesburger you ever tried. Nothing to compare with, even the amazing shake shack burger, is just a bit lower on taste.

Definitely, i mean DEFINITELY, you should go have this taste experience.

There is no surprise that this is the number one restaurant in New York, better quality of service, delicious food, great variety on the menu and last, but not the prices that are very affordable. All these features make this restaurant first choice for me. I would definitely come here again and recommend it to my friends.

Owner Marcel is very pleasant and working hard to make every guest feel like a valued client. Very chatty. Service was good. This little place is magical! They have a very good simple menu which was wonderful. The food we ordered came out perfectly cooked and in just the right amount of wait-time.
We'll back

Best Cheeseburger ever! I ate here twice and wasn??t too impressed with my entrees, but the Cheeseburger are magnificent. My friend who eats here all the time also recommends the chef salad (antique cafe's chef salad). The interior is really nice, bathroom very clean! and music awesome. The waitstaff is extremely nice and accommodating.

Are you kidding me! Photos on the web might look quaint, but the music was blasting (at eight in the morning not preferred), the service was non-existent and the food tasted horrible! Not a pleasant experience!! Don't waste your time or money.

I have never gone wrong having lunch here. Never. Though it's a small place, it's big on variety. Don't like what you see one day, the next they have a different item of lunch options and it's great to check back. I'm especially happy with their pasta dishes. Always great combos!

I try to come here at least twice a week. Usually I get a Latte or just a Cafe Americana, but the coffee is always good, fresh and really full bodied and pretty strong. Definitely a treat on your way to work. The staff is friendly, they get to know you if you go in a lot, and are pretty good at anticipating your needs.

Antique cafe has atmosphere. You get a little European flavor when you set foot in here. Not a Vegas version of France, but a real slice of the old world. Then there's the food. Lunch menu that constantly changes and evolves, and a nice dinner and brunch menu too. There is no sense of stagnation about this restaurant. While it remains somewhere out of a specific time or place, in limbo, there's a sense of evolution. The choices are constantly being tweaked and/or improved upon, experimented with. Sometimes it works, sometimes you have to complain, but it's nice to know they're listening and considering new, different ideas.
The real treat is to come early for Saturday brunch with a good book. If you're a people watcher its interesting to see the fashionable Chelsea types strut through here. Play it cool, and you might even recognize a musician or actor. Hmmmm, or was that just my 3rd espresso clouding my judgment? Better order another chocolate croissant while I'm indulging.

The name says it all. Small, intimate dining, French and American style cuisine, old world charm. Not hyper trendy, not a flash in the pan destination, and not uber-pretentious (thank god). Coming here is like having the family and friends up to the house in the country, without leaving the island. Granted, there's a here and there element of the nuttiness that makes the NYC experience what it is. Still, this place will seduce you with unwavering charm and you won't mind ordering dessert. Really, why should you, when the selections are so consistently delicious? Finally, don't even think about skipping the coffee drinks. New York City still has pockets of charm, this cafe is one of them.

I'm an all American food lover, burger and fries guy. There are plenty of mediocre burgers and soggy fries at the endless dives in this town. Antique cafe isn't one of them. Now, granted, the menu could have more items, I wish they'd expand a little, but I always love their burgers. The fries are always great, and the better part of this restaurant is the fact it's not a slick, boring, generic, cold "futuristic" looking place. So many seem to be popping up in the town like a cancer, I love Antique cafe because it has charm, it's small, and not overpriced. Definitely a cut above a lot of other places in the neighborhood. At least this place has a little class, with it's jazz, always fresh flowers, and pretty friendly staff. Stay Antique Cafe, become the institution in this town you deserve to be.

My wife and I frequent New York and love the Antique Cafe. We were planning a trip down from Maine last month, and went online to see if it was still around. I have to admit I was a little worried by seeing some of the bad reviews that it had gone downhill, as so many good places do. Still, we decided to give it a chance.

We arrived Saturday morning for brunch, before noon, got seated promptly, and had a very polite waiter take our order. He was respectful of us both. We never felt as if they were rushing or ignoring us. Perhaps every place goes through difficult times, but we didn't see any evidence of it during our visit. We sat for an hour, had pancakes, she had eggs benedict with salmon (her's was better than my pancakes, I admit) , delicious coffee drinks, and pleasant jazz in the background.

Frankly I don't know who's complaining about service, because I paid attention to the staff to see if they were insufferable or rude, and it simply didn't happen. Perhaps they had a bad apple for while there? Anyway, believe me, it's a lovely place for brunch, my wife and I will continue to dine there during our New York visits.

I have been coming to Antique Cafe for years and I cannot for the life of me figure out why I, or anyone else for that matter, continues to frequent this place. Every single time, without fail, no matter who takes care of you, I get the sense that they just cannot be bothered. As another reviewer (one of the REAL reviewers) pointed out, it's as if they're doing me a favor by letting me overpay for food and/or coffee. I'll admit the food is "okay" but it's not great, and in fact after lunch there today, I got incredibly sick. I guess these guys still think that they're the only choice in the neighborhood and they can get away with treating everyone horribly, but that is no longer the case. There are lots of great places opening up in the area, and you can get way better cupcakes AND delightful service at Blue Dog around the corner, so please, avoid Antique Cafe at all costs. Maybe someone who understands what "service industry" means will come in and turn this prime location into something worth going to.

I chose Antique Cafe based on reviews and ratings I had seen right here on City Search (and a couple of confirmations by New Yorkers who had dined there themselves.) My colleagues and I were extremely impressed, even beyond what I had expected;Not only was the food fantastic, the entrees were huge! None of us was able to finish ours. One colleauge and I had the fried calamari platter; the other chose the broiled platter. I don't think I have ever seen such big scallops in my life! Everything was prime. The sides were delicious as well - some of the best rice I have ever had. None of us had room for dessert, but they looked delicious. We would all definitely visit again. It was everything we hoped for, and then some.

The food is delightful and will leave room for dessert (check the coconut frosting cake), which is equally delicious. Service can be a tad on the slow side if the place is busy but it's generally worth the wait.
good wine and music; make a perfect dinner for a special date.

This lovely spot is open for lunch and dinner. The owner a great guy from Peru and he certainly know simple, delicious bistro style cooking! I'm lucky enough to live nearby, so I've enjoyed their quiches, pastas, and salads on numerous occasions. They also have heavier entrees including veal, filet of sole,scallops, beef etc. Everything I've ever tried has been first rate. They have a reasonably priced selection of beers and wine.

What irks me the most is dishonesty... and this establishment is so awfully brazen with it. I have to admit the number of reviews caught my eye, but once i actually reviewed what was being said... it was clear that these reviews were fake. quickly looking at the last 25 reviewers... all 25 were one time reviewers and they closely timed the reviews to be almost daily. They must think the public is idiotic to believe that these comments are true. It is quite evident how fake and pathetic these reviews are. Shame on you Antique Cafe.

The setting was very nice not too dark, and the service was excellent, the food was good and the variety was plentiful. Everything was presented elegantly, one set back is to not go on a major event day, when it get's quite busy, noise does get a bit loud i mean it is just that popular, and i am sure everyone will enjoy.

I took a friend here after she arrived in NYC via Amtrack from DC. We sat outside, and enjoyed the setting. Our server was informative and attentive, yet the food was pretty bland. I had the shallot and mozarella salad with beefsteak tomatoes- it was ok- at least the tomatoes hadn't been refrigerated, but the mozarella was exceptionally bland. My friend had the sole I think and while our hunger was satiated- it wasn't an awesome meal.

My ex-girlfriend just raves about this place and I finally decided to find out why. So I stopped in. Now I know why she loves it. I thought I was a great cook and could mix and match flavors and textures, and I thought some of my favorite restaurant choices had good food, but my stuff and the food in other places I frequent is lousy compared to Antique Cafe! I was shocked at how tender and tasty it was. Totally unexpected and wonderful. Also tried the Salmon steak with house salad with parmesan and loved it although it could do with a bit more cheese. The chocolate dessert thing was so good I had two. I don't know much about wine, I recognize the good labels from the wines my ex drank and see some of them at Antique Cafe's. I want to go back to try some other menu items (the meat and cheese platters someone on the next table had looked really good) but I'm afraid I'll run into my ex...and I'll feel stupid since I would never go with her to Antique Cafe's and now I'm sorry I didn't. The music is really great, too. The place has a nice vibe to it and I will be back.

Absolutely wonderful place in my hometown!!! One of my favorite places to go. Nice ambiance and the Roasted chicken is to die for. The appetizers were delicious - I let the server select. She also selected the wine. The entrees were original and the portions were more than enough. The overall price of the dinner and drinks were appropriate. My only disappointment was sitting at a table under the "Specials" Board so diners kept coming over, standing right up to the table and reading the selections.

Always have a romantic diner at the Antique Cafe, great ambiance (flowers), wine and service are all perfect.
I go to Manhattan several times a month from (princeton) and would make the drive just to dine here.

I've been here several times for lunch. They have huge portions for the price. The waitstaff is very friendly and accomodating. Nice atmosphere and very clean. The Chicken and Corn Chowder soup is to die for! I wouldn't go to Chelsea without dining here. Not to be missed

After our weekly dance class every wednesday we went to get something to eat to located near by west 26th street and we found ANTIQUE CAFE. As i am no fan of fast food I have had a N.Y. Strip Steak - superior quality beef, and my friend have had AC Angus Burger - both juicy and delicious. The portions are huge but still I could not deny myself a dessert - so again I have been served enormous portion of chocolate cake with ice cream.
Everything was really tasty and nicely presented. The prices are reasonable, especially if one consider how big the portions are and the fact that one is eating in a restaurant on Chelsea. The staff is polite and efficient. Overall very nice experience.

My friends suggested that I have lunch at Antique Cafe instead of dinner, since they have a wonderful buffet; it's quite a good deal.
The restaurant is beautifully decorated (with amazing flowers). The 3-course meal is excellent, and the service slightly pretentious but you'd expect that from Antique Cafe and many 3-star restaurants.
I would definitely go back again.

The food was excellent. The service was so nice! They even gave us an extra dessert! The little pricy for the budget travel but well worth it! New York City rocks and so does the Antique Cafe's

This tiny charmer derives its name from a 1890s bronze cash register with a Gallic-inspired elegance that sets the tone for the cafe's offerings. Dinner selections change daily but can include variations on the theme of panini as well as…
