A word from Kitchenette - Tribeca
Home style cooking at its best is our mantra. Our restaurant is located in the busy streets of Tribecca but one step inside instantly transports you to a quaint country diner in the heart of the New England country side. The pink polka dot wainscoting and tin ceilings along with our funky homemade tables made from salvaged doors adds to the cottage feel.



You are met at the door with our abundantly filled pastry cases. The shelves are filled with our homemade layer cakes, flaky pies, iced cupcakes, fruit crisps, and so much more to tempt you on your way to a table. Kitchenette can satisfy all your cravings whether it be an oasis from the cold with our own hot chocolate topped with a homemade marshmallow, or a steamy bowl of chicken soup or a hearty meal of turkey meatloaf and mashed potatoes. We are a home away from home. Come visit us for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Brunch or an afternoon slice of cake and coffee.

Hope to see soon.

    Food is excellent, as is the uptown one. Downtown was smaller, dirtier and dingier than the cute, kitchy uptown one. We were served by a newbie that didn't know anything that also looked as though he was high and hungover and didn't want to be there. I wouldn't go back to this location.

    This place is absolutely adorable. They have a large selection of food to chose from and everything I've had at both locations has been great. The service is a little slow so maybe not the best choice if you're in a hurry, but the waitstaff is perfectly friendly. I would definitely recommend either location if you're looking for a tasty meal in a cozy place.

    Charming shabby chic venue. Wonderful service and tasty food. Coffee was dodgy-which was disappointing given we had some great coffee on our trip. Our waiter was just lovely and really wanted to help. But our table was virtually in the hall way opposite entrance to toilet and kitchen. Very loud and busy but added to fun atmosphere. I think the whole place could do with a good clean though. Toilet very average!!!

    Three of us went to the Kitchenette for lunch. We had reservations for 12:45 and were seated promptly when we got there. The service was excellent - after taking our order the waiter came back several times to see if we needed anything. The food was a bit slow in coming but was well worth the wait - outstanding burgers, salads and garlic fries. The homemade pink lemonade was great. Would definitely recommend this place for lunch/brunch.

    The food was the worst I've ever had in my life. My fish from the Fish and Chips had no seasoning whatsoever. My friend ordered the chicken with some pasta (Forgot the name of the dish). The sauce was just tomato sauce and the chicken was no where close to being cooked. Very unprofessional staff... If you want to hear a lot of profanity, come here. No wonder the place was so empty.

    This is a darling dinette. I was completely taken back to another place and time. Hard to believe it is tucked in Tribeca, with its polka-dot decor and farmhouse charm. They have a bakery counter and a beautiful selection of mini pies and such, and the menu is full of reasonably priced comfort food choices. I was hoping they had more choices for me, as I must eat gluten-free. Alas, they managed a salmon & salad that was just ok. Even with that, I would recommend it for the Motown music and the atmosphere so unique in NYC.

    great brunch spot. very busy, but they were good with not keeping us waiting more than a few minutes after our reservation. I've been here a couple of times and, unfortunately, I had the same waiter each time. He slams my coffee down on the table each time (always spilling it) forgetting to bring milk, sugar or even a spoon. Always seems "short" when answering questions about the menu. He's not the best or really a good waiter, but the place makes up for it. The runners were always more than helpful, so it helped balance out. the place is cute and the food is pretty good with a great menu. Just steer clear of this one waiter!

    I liked the food and the casual atmosphere but it seems that they just packed too many people. A table for four was turned into two and the waiter had to reach over our table to give the other part their food. Also the table next to is complained very politely about getting the wrong dish and both the waiter and manager said it was his fault for not telling them earlier. Ridiculous. There are many other restaurants around here in TriBeCa so I probably won't come back

    Nice, casual place. The baked goods on display made me feel like I was back in my Grandmother's kitchen. I was looking forward to getting my food because the plates going by looked so good. However, after waiting 45 minutes for it to arrive, I began losing interest and just wanted to eat and get out of the restaurant. I would return one more time to see if I just caught the restaurant on a bad day since my food was really tasty once it arrived.

    This place is all you ever want in a great brunch spot. From the second you walk in the door feel you walked into a home kitchen. The staff and food were amazing. I have never had a better Sangria in my life and the turkey sausage was WONDERFUL!!! I wanted to try so many of the menu items, so can't wait to go back. Even lunch menu looked like it had many things I would want to try. Super excited we found this place.

    Friends were visiting from Seattle, staying at the Soho hotel w/ the great David Burke restaurant. I told them Kitchenette had the best brunch and insisted we go there. But it wasn't. For 3 of us, we spent $60-- and that's with the discount if you pay cash (seems a little shady!)--no coffee--no drinks. Wanted something healthy--should have cooked at home. I had their version of eggs Benedict--it came with a grilled tomato that was not a good tomato--+ it made the English muffin soggy. I am trying to save money (to cover rising rents) by not eating out so much. The bright side of this experience is that A. saved calories by not eating the English muffin + B. will not be tempted to go there again.

    Kitchenette was recommended by a friend and while it was a nice brunch, the cramped seating inside this small restaurant made it slightly uncomfortable. Honestly, if they took out just a few tables, it would make a world of difference--especially with the number of unsupervised small children who were dining with their parents. Service also left something to be desired. Food was pretty good, I got an omelet that was nice and fluffy, but I was disappointed in the biscuit--it was rock hard and on the very dry side. Best part of the meal were the desserts, friend got a milkshake that was fabulous and I got a fruit crumble a la mode. If I ever went back here, it would just be for dessert.

    The Kitchenette is this adorable little place in Tribeca. The decor is really fun and quaint and the atmosphere is very homey. You feel like everyone at the counter is a regular. The food has always been delicious and fresh and I would die for their biscuits. I have never gotten any of the desserts, but I plan to one day, because they all look amazing. The menu is affordable, but plan on spending at least 15 on a full meal. The wait, especially on the weekends, can be kind of long, so I recommend putting in a reservation. The website makes it really easy.

    I'm starting off this review by saying that any breakfast restaurant that I've ever visited, I'm being offered a cup of coffee within 5 minutes of sitting down. Well, at Kitchenette it was a good 10 minutes. We didn't even know if we had a server. The place is chaotic with employees not really interested in serving their tables. The food is okay. I mean, you can't really mess up breakfast. I was excited about the biscuits but they were a little dry. Oh, and the coffee we waited over 10 minutes for...it was full of grounds. Gross!
