YUM – Go here when you are hungover and want to pummle some great food. Pitchers of beer are cheap and so is the delicious food. Olive Tree is such a go-to spot for me!
Great Ambience, good for a casual first date – Big chalk board tables, chess sets provided when not full, great service, so-so food, beautiful lighting, cramped center tables but spacious booths worth waiting for. Charlie Chaplin movies have been playing on a Projector here for at least 11 years- I have been coming here for that long! Great place for a first date- especially with the comedy club right downstairs.
Best Cafe in New York!! – This Cozy place is the best place to go for delisious,cheap food and fast friendly service!!! the bathroom is downstairs in the comedy club and when I walked downstairs Colin Quinn was standing in the hallway and he showed me which way to go!!! It was great!!
The best fiesta salad in all the land... – I love this place, and am absolutely ADDICTED to their fiesta salad, which is not to be missed! The free pitas and chalkboard tables add to the friendly feel.
Great place – This place is wonderful. The food and drinks were great. Our waiter was super cool. The prices are good too. Don't miss this place!
Great Place! – This is defitnatly one of the city's coolest spots. Service is friendly, and the comics are great!
This is a great place to take your shorty, or just go with friends. You can eat, drink and laugh.. Really fun!
Tasty and inexpensive Middle Eastern eats at this crowd-pleasing Village cafe. – In Short
With its stained-glass lamps, dark brick details and an antique-looking bar in the back, this Village staple is a fun spot for inexpensive (and late-night) American and Middle Eastern fare. The sprawling menu features everything from burgers to falafel to chocolate egg cream. Diners can rent chess and backgammon boards for a buck an hour, or take in a Charlie Chaplin silent flick on the small projection screen.
Yummy! – Like everyone else has stated, the food is good and cheap. Menu is endless. The Falafel, humus, tehina, babaganoush combo was great and the nachoes come with an entire plate of sides, instead of a soggy pileup. Unlimited pitas! Margaritas are good and I got to see Dave Atell!
Cheap & Tasty – Great location and Middle Eastern fare with blackboard tables make for a fun dinner. Although the place is a bit small, we were seated less than 10 mins after we arrived at 7 PM on a Friday night. Food was typical but tasty nonetheless, and the sangria was very delicious and relatively cheap, although maybe not "authentic". Bathroom is a long trip downstairs through the comedy club, so plan accordingly!
falafel!!!! – olive tree is my all time favorite downtown spot.
the neighborhood is open very late lots of interesting stores surround this delicious place.
and downstairs you can catch the comedy show, i see at least one famous comic everytime i go there just chillin at the bar. the place is cozy and the food is awesome. go for the chicken kabobs or falafel and get some drinks too. the burgers are huge and well woth the cheap price. its just a really fun affordable place. have fun drawing on the chalk board tables too!!!
