Home style cooking at its best is our mantra. 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. Please note that we can only hold your table for ten minutes and incomplete tables will be sat until all party members have arrived.
We will unfortunately have to cancel your reservation if you do not notify us that are more than 10 minutes late.

Brunch was so delicious but it was impossible to get refills of water, coffees on time or extra napkins . The restaurant was tight too, would suggest to go on an off hour to get better service and more space

The service was prompt, courteous, and gracious. The food was delicious. I had the buttermilk fried chicken and it was delicious. The side of Mac and Cheese could have been hotter and less dried out. My starter if chicken matzoh ball soup was outstanding. My wife had the turkey burger and salad and was very positive. All in all, the meal definitely hit high grades. We will return with pleasure.

The food here is great, but the only reason it was quiet was that it was Sunday evening; for breakfast and lunch, and especially weekend brunch, it's often a madhouse. I do always find the staff's attitude a little offputting. This time, when I asked for a simple vegetable substitution -- red cabbage is not my favorite -- I was told no one has ever asked for a substitution before, and I could have only mashed potatoes or macaroni and cheese (on a plate that came with potato pancakes). Really, would it have broken the bank to give me squash instead?

A lovely, casual & quaint restaurant with a great vibe. We enjoyed Sunday breakfast and had the Lumber Jack breakfast and the cheesy grits which were both superb! The scones are amazing with marmalade butter, YUM! A great place to eat if you are a student or work near Columbia University or Manhattan School of Music. The staff were all so friendly and attentive. Highly recommend.

Food was fine; our server was very kind and attentive. The noise level was over-the-top though, but maybe this is typical for w/e brunch. Plus I think the layout and design make for *very* lively acoustics.

Kitchenette is super cute. I ordered the tofu scramble. The service was great but the tofu scramble seemed watery and the seasoning didn't help make it taste all that well.

Great food, nice ambience. Unfortunately we (party of 3) had to sit at a small table and an even smaller chair outside. Not very comfy but if you could get a real table it’s a nice place.

Frankly it baffles me that this sad-looking hole-in-the-wall gets good reviews. The service was courteous but slow and very amateur, the food was OK but nothing to write home about, and the room was ... from hunger.

The food and environment was ok; it was a little bit pricey, which is fine because they use their profit to pay their workers a living wage, but it wasn't anything special. The menu was extensive, which I liked. The tables were pretty close together and the noise level was loud when the restaurant was full. But the service was very quick and overall it was enjoyable.

Lovely, neighborhood, kitschy small restaurant...reservations definitely needed on holidays and perhaps weekends. Worth it for a fun lunch/dinner/brunch with wonderful ambiance and local cuisine that is home cooked. Interesting decor by young women which has lasted for decades on this block! And just learned that they give 10% discount IF you pay in CASH! Fabulous!

Since the first time I've been there, I've loved Kitchenette. It's become a favorite spot to take loved ones and friends from out of town for Sunday Brunches, for me. The food is fantastic and hearty, and the staff are always friendly and the right amount of attentive, making eating there a pleasure, even with the slightly tight space that the restaurant occupies.
