Archway Cafe opened its doors in 2010 serving espresso and fresh baked goods for breakfast and amazing salads and sandwiches for lunch. Our menu has evolved quite a bit since then and now serve BRUNCH and DINNER! We're located right next to the Manhattan Bridge, on the BROOKLYN side. Look for the Bridge's archway right on Pearl Street, between Front and Water Street. Come by for a visit!

Their website and google informed 8am opening time. I made an 8:30 reservation. When we arrived they had the doors open and cafe tables out. The janitor informed they were closed... their “open!” Sign was in the window. I turned their sign around properly for them... I politely asked the owner, who sat there like a lump on a log, if I could use the restroom. He was BEYOND RUDE. An utter jerk.

I was looking for a place to eat in Dumbo, and found Archway Cafe on Open Table. It turned out to be a really wonderful place. I had the watermelon salad to start, which was fresh and delicious. I then had the hummus plate with cauliflower and butternut squash, which was just sensational. I finished the nutella pizza, which was simply decadent. The service was great and the prices most reasonable.

The food was very good. Disappointed by the number of flies in the seating area and around our tables. That may give me pause before coming again.

Perfect place for lunch before a matinee at St. Ann's Warehouse in Dumbo. Excellent menu, healthy options, attentive service and a very relaxed, cool European vibe.

Have eaten here twice. I gravitate toward the smoked salmon breakfasts and salads which I have found fresh and amble. Others have enjoyed pulled pork sandwiches. Can have table conversations. Food is fresh and reasonably priced.

The manager was incredibly rude even if I made a reservation and the whole party was on time. Such a jerk.

My daughter and I went for brunch before a matinee. The service was poor (ordered a bloody mary, server came back 10 minutes later-out of bloody mary mix!); asked for hot sauce for our eggs (were given a bottle that was practically empty); waited quite a while for our check.
The food was OK, eggs were somewhat overcooked, bread was dry, Will not return.
