Food her is delicious. Have been several times and am never disappointed. The menu hasn't changed much in all the times I have been there but the food is consistently good. I can recommend the tuna and the beef stew. The butternut squash appetizer is amazing. The sundae was phenomenal with the speculous ice cream. Was too full to do anything else but go home afterwards!

Have ate here several times. Great food and service. Best mussels you can find and get Belgian beer selections. My place to go for mussels.

Very nice place with big portions
Very nice place with big portions of quite good food and attentive service. Unfortunately, we were seated next to a guy whose voice was not only loud, but so intrusive that I could hardly hear my dinner companion's speech. Once he left, things were much better.

Adorable and yummy!
Such a cute place! Excellent brunch, they don't rush you out which is noce. French fries are out of this world, can't wait to come back for dinner to try the mussels!

I go for the beef stew and the dessert waffle fully loaded. Brunch menu is also very solid and there is a nice selection of Belgian ales. This place is always on point and a good "go-to" spot in the neighborhood.

I had a lovely dinner of fresh steamed mussels and a glass of crisp white wine. Perfect! I will be back to sample the other items on the menu.

delightful...looking forward to returning. also great list of Belgian beer on tap.

First time here. It was great. The food is cooked to perfection.

I took my mother here for a special occasion, And she loves it! She is a picky Italian American, usually unwilling to try new foods. This food is excellent Belgian cooking, but nothing out of her comfort zone. They were really accommodating, and have a decent garden for outdoor dining.
The drinks are slightly overpriced -- most notably the 6 dollar instant hot chocolate!

Good, plump mussels served with salty fries. Bread is just ok. Service workers really tried to please. The salads are tasty but a bit high in price for this casual type of restaurant.

Dinner, Friday, May 24th, Golden
Everything was delicious. Reservation honored on time. The endive salad, while tasty and fresh, lacked the amount of Stilton cheese and walnuts that we have had at previous times.

Mussels and Waffles!
We visit NYC two to three times a year and make sure to visit B Cafe each time. I love getting a pot of mussels and the B Cafe waffles. Yum! Service is great, very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and beer selections. My only complaint would be that the tables are very close together, kind of crammed in there, but that's the case at many Manhattan restaurants.

Great food! Great ambiance! Only downside is parking...on a day that its hard to find, I had to bite the bullet and park in a garage.

Lovely garden in the rear offers a quiet charm. Food is well prepared and served with a smile.

Charming Belgian notable for
Charming Belgian notable for its outdoor patio and incredible selection of beers, with a four-glass "beer paddle" available for tasting. Lovely wines also available for the non-beer drinkers. The menu seemed more diverse and imaginative than I remembered from a previous visit, and even the most judgmental of our large and picky group were very happy with their choices. Praise for the seared scallops, beer-braised beef stew, the grilled salmon and tuna. A bit tight for a large group indoors, but overall a very successful evening.

Amazing selection of Belgian beers, very friendly staff, beautiful garden in back for dining, very tasty Belgian food. Loved the atmosphere and would definitely go back.

A new discovery for us. And, we'll definitely be back. A delightful place with really good Belgian food and many craft beers. The garden in the back is lovely.

Mussles and frites were excellent, but the best thing about this restaurant was their beautiful outdoor terrace in back. It was attractive and super quiet - quite unusual for NYC!!!

I enjoyed dinner amongst a welll heeled clientele of beautiful people! The service was seamless, quiet, and unaffected. We sat in the garden and ate traditional Carbonades and Moules Frites, as well as vol au vent and saumon. The food is not rock star knock out - which is just what I wanted for a family birthday party - Belgian cuisine feels like excellent be high end French bistro. The flavors are intense and dark with no lurking weird additions. My highpoint was an endive salad with a strong Dijonaise dressing and a wisp of watercress. Hidden among the salad were two glazed walnuts - it was a great story of contrats.

what a delight and right in
what a delight and right in my neighborhood. The food was excellent and there are over 100 Belgium bottles beers to choose from. Not to mention the beer on tap. Went for brunch but am returning soon for dinner. Also a great happy hour - a lobster roll and beer or glass of wine for 15.00.

Moules every which way
The mussels were excellent, as were the crisp french fries. Couldn't finish the delicious broth though I tried. BEcause I like amber beers I tried a Belgian amber --Palm--which was pleasant. My dining companion and I shared an amazing waffle for dessert. The room is a bit cramped but we were fine seated at a corner table..There is a heated garden in the back for those more adventurous than we were. The service was professional; as soon as a bowl was filled with used shells it was whisked away and replaced with an empty one. Water glasses were refilled promptly. A most satisfying evening; I will go back. There are other menu items but, as a major lover of moules I want to try another one of their variations.

Food was better that ever ... As Belgian as in Bussels .

I would definitely return to try other menu items. Brunch was very good.

Great food, nice ambiance
My husband and I were visiting NYC and I found this restaurant in the neighborhood we were staying. We went early (6pm) so we had our pick of tables on the back patio. I'm glad we did as the place began to fill up while we were there. The patio was very nice and the food was great. We had the red curry mussels, which were excellent. We were able to sit and enjoy a drink without feeling rushed. Overall a very nice experience.

B Cafe- Go!
This is our favorite place in our 'hood. Never had anything, from soup to apps to mains that wasn't really good. It is a Belgian cafe so mussels, fries, beef stew and beer are fabulous, but no matter where your appetite leads, you can't go wrong. Staff is attentive, atmosphere is warm and welcoming.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had been here before for dinner and was very pleased with their cheese plate and mussels. Then this past weekend I went for brunch and had to write a review because it was just that good! Every entree was delicious - between us we ordered all 3 of the eggs Benedict (classic, salmon, spinach), the Belgium waffle, and the egg sandwich. All were great, but I must say that the best was egg sandwich... It was different than any I've had before and SO delicious!! Also, their fries are out of this world... Perfect crunchiness and saltiness - we were talking about them all day. The place has a great back outdoor garden which unfortunately was full when we got there for our 1 pm reservation, so try to get there early. I'll definitely go back!

Relaxed atmosphere and good food
Waited at the bar--very nice decor and friendly bartender. We were seated when my friend arrived and the service was attentive without being intrusive. Great specials, fabulous beer list and very nice wines.
I'd go back for the pleasant and mellow atmosphere.

We walked by B. Cafe East
We walked by B. Cafe East over the summer on a weekend and made a note to return. So glad we did, because it did not disappoint! The staff, in particular our waitress, were wonderful, and helped make the evening very special for my boyfriend's birthday. The food was excellent and we're looking forward to many more meals there!

What a gem this little hideaway is! It is known for it's mussels and fries. The entire menu was
fantastic. In addition, they give very large portions so we all took home leftovers.
This is a perfect, intimate restaurant with a diverse menu! Be sure to make a reservation.

Always a pleasure returning
Always a pleasure returning to the B. Cafe. A wonderful neighborhood gem. Great food, delightful European ambience and friendly service!

Several styles of Moules Frite (try the red curry sauce for a delicious variation) and hundreds of beer choices make this fun and interesting dining with a difference. We go there when we want a quite neighborhood place for a good meal.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food is just wonderful. I have been there three times and had an overall great experience every time. The place is cozy and the ambiance quite nice.

Excellent food and atmosphere
Had a great experience at B Cafe for brunch. Food was amazing and I liked the space tucked away on 75th St. Covered patio in the back was charming.
