About
In 1987, on its tenth anniversary, New York City proclaimed Cornelia Street Cafe "A CULINARY AS WELL AS A CULTURAL LANDMARK." Founded by three artists, it provides food for the soul as well as the body. Upstairs there are three dining rooms, a beautiful hundred-year-old oak bar, a sidewalk cafe on one of New York's most picturesque streets, and a wood-burning fireplace for the winter. The cafe has received numerous awards for its food: Time Out's TOP 100 RESTAURANTS; the Village Voice's BEST OF NEW YORK FOOD; and a special award from the Village Arts Society for INSPIRED CUISINE. Most recently it received the Waterford Crystal Award of Distinction for BEST BY-THE-GLASS WINE PROGRAM--there are

A friend recommended this spot and we had brunch here. It was a very cute place with good food. The service gave our food to the wrong table which was a bit inconvenient, and the service was slow overall, but the food itself was good.

They squeeze tables close together to fit the maximum number of people, but you end up hearing everyone else's conversations and not much of your own. But the food is good, so it is worth it.
