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.

Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "cakes are nice and massive, the quinoa burger has not consistency and is rather quinoa-lentil paste, egg plates are small. in general overpriced."

  • "Had been to the Kitchenette on the Upper West Side and this was the first time in Tribeca. Really good food as always. The fruit cobbler was not quite as good as Upper West side. Service was OK."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Busy decor and a polka-dotted menu that is hard to read. Very cramped dining space and even with a reservation, we waited about 25 minutes for a table. Food was tastey and service was efficient. Not recommended for those who do not like tight spaces, or a relaxing brunch experience. I would try the joint again perhaps earlier in the morning to beat the crowd."

  • "A friend asked to be taken here for lunch for his birthday; I had never heard of the place though I do remember The Kitchen on West Broadway. A 50s ambience; comfort food; and no alcohol. The staff looked like web designers from Williamsburgh - or whatever they do for a living in Williamsburgh. Pleasant, but not very attentive. Food was what one might expect: very rich, not very well presented. A very odd clientele; no one in a suit or tie, yet they appeared to have some kind of jobs. And of course the Tribeca mom with her attention grabbing baby. Not for me."

  • "Last Sunday, we went to brunch at Kitchenette (TriBeCa) and were very disappointed at first because we had to wait an hour (!!!) for our table (even though we had a reservation via Open Table at 12 PM)… The Service was VERY unorganized and the interior turned out not to be as cute and cozy as imagined…Nevertheless, the food was delicious and affordable ($ 15 cherry and blackberry pancake, $ 15 Omelette, $ 5 Hot Chocolate with homemade marshmallow, $ 5 fresh orange juice) but taking everything into account, it´s not worth the wait and we will not come back again."

  • "After the rave reviews online and in TimeOut NYC, I was excited to try Kitchenette. After ordering my excitement subsided significantly. First, it took ~30 minutest get our food. People who had sat down after us were eating before us-- there is something really wrong with that. Second, our waiter seemed to forget about our table. No refills, check-ins, etc. during our long wait for food. Finally when the food arrived, it was nothing more than more disappointment. My burger was over cooked and lacked flavor. The upgraded hand cut fries I got were even more pathetic-- soggy and luke warm. To the restaurant's credit they did get me a new, fresher, order of fries, after I had tried to eat the burger. All in all choose another place for brunch."

  • "I went in for brunch after a very late evening the night before. Let's just say, I was not feeling great when I arrived at the restaurant. Although the food was amazing and the staff perfect, the noise level was way above anything I could have handled and the tables and chairs were crammed in to fire-code capacity. I had a reservation, but waited for a table for a while. When I was finally seated, we had to get up and down every time the tables next to us had to be served, bused, or changed. This is not the type of environment I want when I go to brunch. Nevertheless, it is absolutely adorable and the food is amazing."

  • "A good little place just off Chambers Street Metro - great staff, great food, the drinks come in jars - not the cocktails though......a nice little place, just like grandmas house, polka dots, the tables are a little wobbly but just use a paper napkin to level it.....I'd say being from the UK that this place is like a quirky cafe with quirky staff....bravo"

  • "I absolutely loved Kitchenette in TriBeca! The food was delicious and the service was excellent and all the members of staff were extremely friendly and helpful. On my next trip to NY I definitely intend on going back and would certainly recommend to friends. The Lumberjack brunch option was fabulous and would recommend the Caramel Turtle milkshake!"

  • "Went there with out-of-town guests, having stopped in once before a few years ago, since it seemed to have a nice aesthetic and was in my neighborhood. I paid $4 for a single cookie that was not that good. The place was cute and somewhat eclectic, but a little like they were trying hard to look like they weren't trying hard. Ordered the Vanilla Creme Brulee French Toast on recommendation from the server. When it came it was cold at the bottom, indicating to me that they hadn't microwaved it long enough. Yuck. If I'm going to pay $14.95 for french toast and you're going to make me wait 25 minutes before it's served, please make it up fresh! Is this a restaurant or a deli? Food not good and overpriced. Not recommended."

  • "Sitting by the door in the winter was not a good idea but the service made up for it. Our waiter was outstanding!! Pleasant, charismatic, and energetic! Food was delicious with constant tea refills. I highly recommend the desserts... do not leave without cake!"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Unfortunately, our reservation on open table was not honored because they had overbooked. We ended up waiting 45 minutes (unacceptable). The reason I waited was because their staff was/is very friendly, providing frequent feedback as they weaved in and out of the waiting queue. The food is average, and not worth the wait. There are just too many places in NYC."

  • "We enjoyed our breakfast at the Kitchenette. The homemade English muffins were very good, as were the potato pancakes. The atmosphere is fun, with the decor made to look like you are in someone's kitchen. It is a rather small space and the tables are pretty close together, but once you are seated, it was comfortable. We would recommend going there if you are in TriBeCa."

  • "Conveniently located near the Tribeca Performing Arts Center, Kitchenette is an ideal place to meet friends for dinner before performances. Salmon over lentils dish was delicious! Cheerful service."

  • "When you first walk in to this Tribeca location you can't help but to wonder "what this is it? Why do I need reservations to here?" But you do and you should!! Although the "hostess" that greeted us left much to be desired, the food was definitely worth the trip in the cold and rain. The menu is quite busy and also hard to read but once you get passed that you won't be disappointed. I had the turkey hash with eggs and it was AMAZING! So different, with big juicy chunks of turkey and sweet potato, the biscuit and home made apple butter was delicious! My date tried chicken and waffles for the first time and was so glad he did. Such a big portion and pure maple syrup. His bloody mary was also very good! Cramped but I would go again!"

  • "Kitchenette is great place for lunch and they have wonderful cakes, cookies and cupcakes to satisfy any sweet tooth. The space is small so sometimes seating is a little crammed. They have healthy option for vegans or vegetarians. The service can be a little slow, but always worth the wait :)"
    Dined on 1/27/2014
  • "The staff were outstanding. The food was surprisingly average. Having tasted the pancakes, french toast, chicken and waffles, I could not figure out why the restaurant was so crowded. It tasted like food you would make at home with no culinary training evident."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "My only issue with this place is that it small and poorly laid out. They refuse to sit tables until the whole party is there, lots of people without reservations are also waiting plus people at standing around their "to go" counter. The wait staff and other workers had to force and push through the crowd and I got bounced around quite a bit (even though 3 our of 4 of us were there!)"
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "- the food was good but nothing crazy (pancakes were dry, burger with pepper jack not spicy at all, etc.) - the place is so tiny that it is absolutely not fitted for kids! The stroller had to be folded and stored in a small corner behind the counter, nothing was available to change the diapers - despite the fact that we booked our table in advance, they got us waiting 35mn with a baby in the arms in the middle of a compacted small place (reason announced: they gave our table to another group because one of our friend arrived 5mn late!). It was obvious that they were not taking the bookings into account at all..."

  • "My friend and I met up for brunch this past Saturday. We were excited to try out Kitchenette since we had heard such great reviews of the place. I found a reservation on OpenTable the morning of and we were seated soon after we arrived. The food was delicious - I ordered the St. John's and my friend ordered the chipotle hash. The service left something to be desired. Our server came and checked on us over and over again to see whether we were finished. He could see my friend was still in the middle of eating but kept coming back. Worse, when he would check in, he never refilled my coffee and I had to ask. Having heard so much about Kitchenette, I'm still glad we went. However, next time I really hope the service improves!"

  • "The decor inside is adorable. The acoustics in there are terrible, however. It was so loud to the point where I felt so distracted and uncomfortable in my seat. The menu selection is extensive, which is great, and the biscuits are delicious! I wanted to try their sweets, as they looked amazing, but did not get the chance. This place is a cute neighborhood find."

  • "The food here is decent, it's your standard brunch fare (eggs, pancakes, biscuits, toast, etc.) but I think it's only slightly better than what you could get a diner for way less money. What makes Kitchenette stand out is their baked goods, which are pretty tasty. The baked goods are not, however, worth the poor ambiance. The place is LOUD and cramped. You'll need to yell to have anyone at your table hear you if you're there in prime times. They also pack WAY too many people in the place...expect to be bumped into more than once. They will also not mark your reservation as honored in the system, so you'll have to work with OpenTable to get your rewards points....a minor annoyance."

I've been to Kitchenette for brunch, lunch, and dinner - I'd recommend it to anyone for any meal! But if you're going to go, you have to go hungry; they give you A LOT of delicious comfort food!"

  • "the food is good but the restaurant doesn't seem to know how to manage reservations. we had a reservation for 12:30pm and didn't get seated until 1:15pm. this seemed like a common occurance as many other groups were waiting as well. the restaurant is tiny, it was freezing outside and we have a baby so the waiting time was really unpleasant."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Charming place but outrageously overpriced breakfasts. Too much cinnamon on French toast, very little maple syrup and they CHARGE for extra syrup. The turkey sausage is great but not worth the price tag. The pancakes are paper thin and the coffee nothing to brag about, very watery. The breakfast potatoes were nothing to brag about and lacked seasoning. You'd be better off going cross town to the village and pay a quarter of the price for a lot more and better tasting food."

  • "We were in NYC visiting our son and went to the Kitchenette for brunch. The staff were fantastic and the food was an A+. But the customers were right out of the movie The Wolf of Wall Street. All in their late twenties with such a sense of importance that they were extremely rude and had this sense of importance that was ridiculous. It was very entertaining for out of towners; I imagine the Kitchenette at 125th is more low keyed. The turkey hash was out of this world fantastic as were the potato pancakes. If in the area I say do not miss this little gem. The staff all deserve hazard pay for putting up with some of their Tribeca customers!"

  • "What a disaster. The place is not able to handle the demand for it's very limited seating. Made an 11:30 reservation, upon showing up at 11:29 were asked to stand outside in the freezing cold for 15 minutes. When we were finally seated, it was in the front window in front of the door. We had to eat with our coats on. When the food arrived it was 3 of our 5 meals. The fourth arrived 10 minutes later, but the 5th was completely forgotten. They did offer to discount our bill and send a free mimosa. Then they "forgot" to return our card from paying the bill. While our server was very pleasant and attempted to make up for the inconvenience, I'd rather it never occurred. As a Tribeca local, I simply cannot recommend this place. It's unfortunate."
