Established in 2008 this small east village pied-a-terre has strived to boldly usher café culture back into to our local community. Open from morning to night Café Mocha takes great pride in offering breakfast, lunch and dinner menus providing an extensive selection of options. Our eclectic multifaceted establishment offers the perfect ambiance to indulge in our selection of pastries over a glass of Riesling or a beautifully selection of charcuterie or cheese platters accompanied by a beautiful Bordeaux or Chianti. With a dinner menu that changes seasonally and a breakfast and lunch menu that always features a host of daily specials, the gourmet will never be left unfulfilled. Of course a café would never be complete without an outstanding espresso bar serving a complete array of coffee based beverages and a grand selection of teas.

I went to Cafe Mocha for my birthday Lunch on 2/19. The food was amazing I highly recommend the steak it was flavorful and tender. You also can't go wrong with 10 dollar unlimited mimosas!

Food was decent, it is much to noisy to try to have a conversation. Would not recommend for catching up with old friends but probably great for happy hour or for two people alone. I was hoarse from having to shout to be heard.

Eiren my server was welcoming from the moment I walked in the place. He had a pleasant smile and said that I could sit any where I liked since the restaurant wasn't that busy. I had a living social voucher to help cut the cost of my expense. I started out with the Paradise salad which was mixed greens, beets, apples, goat cheese and walnuts. They didn't have wings so I order this fried potato balls filled with pork. Last but not least I ordered a turkey burger with sweet potato fries. Everything was delicious. The portion size just enough. I got to bring home a doggy bag and have a nice lunch for tomorrow. Dining points, discount and doggy bag. Who could ask for anything more?

My granddaughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our pre show dinner. It was pretty empty at the time we were there (6:00) so we were able to quietly talk and relax before seeing Slomp. Waiter was perfect.

Wonderful find in the East Village. Our server was friendly and added to our enjoyment of the evening. Great prices and won't break your budget. Free cheese plate comes with your first order of a bottle of wine. Nice! Outdoor seating available. Lots of small plate options. Will definitely be back.

It was good but the only veggi burger wasn't available, so i had a salad with too much salad.

Nice very casual place. They have tapas but the menu is lame. The rest of the menu are simple things like Mac and cheese, burgers, pasta etx. 5 of us - variety of things. While food was ordinary it was made very well. Not sloppy or cheap - nicely done and very good value.

Wine list was great and excellent deal to get a free cheese plate with a bottle of wine. Food was just okay, service was sub-par - our waiter couldn't tell us anything about the cheeses, brought us the wrong order of food and we had to keep asking for water refills.

Would only come back to enjoy a bottle of wine with a small group of friends, but there are better places to do that in the East Vill.

The cooks were horrible we waited an hour for our food and they messed up our order.

Close to the broadway plays and simple walk to enjoy some good foods. Whether you order a salad or burgers you'll enjoy the food and the atmosphere. People are very friendly and do an excellent job taking care of you.

This place was really nice. There was a large group of us and they seated us all- even when the whole group wasn't there. They were very attentive- maybe asked us what drinks we wanted a few too many times. The food was nice, there was a large variety so everyone was catered for. Generally nice, a bit loud and dark and hard to have a really good conversation, especially in a large group.

Great bar specials (though wine selection is small), nice outdoor space, food was good. I've been there twice and would go again! Fun, young, vibrant.
