eh... – I'm a big fan of Cuban food and drinks, so I was really looking forward to trying this place. I ordered one of the specials, even though they were priced slightly higher than the items on the regular menu. I thought it was rather bland, and even the accompanying rice and beans lacked flavor. The food was just "okay." Waitstaff was great though!
So Relaxed and Fun – Two words: Coconut Mojitos
I was turned on to this place by a friend while working as a waiter down the street at a big corner restaurant (Nice Matin) which is way overpriced and way overrated.
This place is so much more and such a find for the Upper West Side.
Incredible Atmosphere and Cheap. I love this place!
Great Place! Cute Atmosphere, Awesome Food – Went for dinner with my boyfriend. Very cute atmosphere, great food that is very cheap and they give you a ton, sangria was amazing! We loved it....we know our food being of puerto rican descent and this place definitely competes with our fav restaurants. Definitely check it out!
Amazing Food, Horrendous Service – My friend had talked up this restaurant to me so much that when she suggested it on Saturday night I jumped at the chance to go. The food and the ambiance did not disappoint - from the sandwiches the kids had, to the entrees we ordered, everything was great. Except for the service! We were served by two very rude waitresses who slammed every glass and dish they brought onto the table, and then got so caught up by hanging out at the bar that I eventually had to hunt them down to pay my bill. We came after peak time, so it's not like they were tied up with many tables. The owner wasn't there, as I am told he usually is, so maybe it was a "when the cat's away" type of situation.
Free Tequila! – We had dinner last Saturday night for a friend's birthday and the food was good for the price. The best part was the free tequila shot for the whole resturant. Not sure if they do this every Saturday night for they patrons, but it was definitely a plus.
Just adorable.. – This place is tiny i will have to say, but good things come in small sizes right?
My friend was raving about it and i said let me see whats so good about it. Well lets start with the place, very cozy, romantic, nicely decorated. I mean just adorable! The staff was very helpful and cordial. I was really enchanted.
I had i believe shrimp in mango sauce and it was just delicious.
This place is great for a date or have dinner with a few friends but not good for large groups. As a matter of fact, i am going again tomorrow to have good spanish food.
Good Food-Terrible Service – I love the food at Cafe Con Leche, but both waitresses last Saturday had the worst attitudes and were so rude I will think twice about going back again. They need to teach their staff how to treat customers and they'll get a lot more happy customers because the food is nice.
Good Brunch – Ok, so the service can be a little spotty, but despite this Cafe Con Leche has good food, and decent prices. We go for the brunch quite often and are never disappointed. If anything simply go for the actual Cafe Con Leche it's delicious!
Excellent!! – Excellent restaurant. Extraordinary food. Prices are really cheap for what you get. I definetely recommend this restaurant. It is a great place to meet with friends. I don´t understand the negative reviews.
Better than other's say! – Don't know how so many could have had bad experiences here. I go all the time. I order out for delivery a lot too. It doesn't have the best service but its pretty good. The food is great. Try the Pollo Enchiladas. It's delicious. Or the Shrimp/Avacado salad. Oh yeah, and the coffee ain't bad either!
