  • Come for brunch, lunch or dinner - the food in this chic caf is a consistently delicious mix of French and Moroccan cuisines. The sidewalk tables are perfect for a sunny day.
  • AVOCADO TOAST. The watermelon juice is pretty good too. Fresh!
  • Loved mozzarella, tapenade, tomato & basil on focaccia! But the service was not very welcoming or attentive. ;)
  • Love this cafe. We visit whenever we come to New York. The Moroccan Cous Cous with organic chicken is the best. Be prepared to queue.
  • Seriously. What app tells all these lovely women to dine here? Not complaining. #justsayen
  • great food at a reasonable price. cous cous is delicious. get it veg or add a meat.
  • A variety of great stuff to choose from but you won't go wrong with this roasted chicken sandwich. Service is pretty average but isn't that half the fun of eating at a French place anyway? Sacr bleu!
  • Have to try avocado toast!
  • Avocado toast will blow your mind.
  • their salads are all awesome, but get the tower of couscous and add the merguez if you're hungry. or get one for the table to share because its freaking delicious.
  • Cash only!!
  • The couscous with merguez sausage is a heavenly tower of deliciousness.
  • How to Make It in America happened here. Rachel and a friend trade life stories with each other at this caf.
  • Avacado toast!!!!!
  • The couscous is delicious, filling, and as an added bonus it is an architectural marvel. A photo is worth a thousand words but I was too in awe to take one.
  • Avocado toast!
  • Believe the hype, y'all - avocado toast is kind of mind-blowing.
  • While this place is perpetually packed it's definitely something you have to check out at least once in your life. Get the avocado toast, the couscous and get your people watching on!
  • very cool eurocentric mood, i love it
  • Good place for brunch. A cosy, small caf..
