  • For brunch, the steak and eggs with hollandaise is really something special. Solid Bloody Mary too thx to huge Spanish olives.
  • The Croque Madame is one of the finest in the city. Healthy portions, highly addictive. Stumptown coffee too!
  • sit by the bar/window during the day. at night, walk through the kitchen, out the back door and hang in the patio
  • head through the kitchen into the back room for a cozy cocktail.
  • I swear to god this place is a lifestyle ad for a beer company. Too many models with slow motion laughs hang out here. All day.
  • The burger is pretty delicious. Get it medium rare w american cheese. And if they have the escargot special, get it! You can also order the fondue even if you're not on the back room.
  • Sit at the bar, order a cup of tea and or seltzer, stay for an hour or so and ring up a $5.00 tab. Oh, so French.
  • Get the Croque Madamme (Croque Monsier + egg, on their menu) - mind blown!
  • Rsti and Fondue!
  • Stumbled upon this cafe and was luckily seated in the back room past the kitchen. Such a cute spot and the food was amazing. Order the Zurich Veal! Definitely coming back to try the fondue and brunch!
  • This is what we like to call babe corner. Between Caf Select and La Esquina, gorgeous SoHo types all congregate here. Best people watching in Manhattan.
  • Our very own Lauren has held the mayoral title here from time to time. Try the Croque Madame!
  • Oysters are bland. Meh.
  • This place doesn't give out the password to their Internet. Liz-ame.
  • Drink at the front until the back room opens. Late night drinking in the back.
  • Order the World Cup cocktail if they have it! Fresh blackberry pure and rhubarb bitters = gooooal!
  • Secret duplex back room for parties through the kitchen. Great vibe.
