We were staying across the road at the Hilton and we loved going to Lou's Cafe. After the third day in a row the staff recognised us and gave us our "regular" booth. I was so happy that I not only gave them a tip...More

This is a really cute place... They always have the most creative daily offers! I tried the pumkin soup once and it was divine! You could not go wrong if you visit this place!

Another gem, Lou's serves a great lunch with very friendly staff and generous portion sizes. Being licensed, it's also great to grab a cold beer before heading back to the park or Times Sq.

Efficient and friendly service! One of the best place to have breakfast near the Moma! We are regular customers since 1995!

Very reasonably priced and very good food. A nice option if you are staying at the Hilton or Sheraton Hotel and Towers nearby. Ate there twice over the snowy weekend. Don't miss the scones and fresh fruit!

Terrific atmosphere and wonderful food at a reasonable price for NYC. If you like pate (and they serve a fine one), check out the farmer's plate. You won't be sorry.

Breakfast at Lou's was nice. Great food - we had waffles with granola, honey and strawberries - which was lovely - as well as croissants and coffee. The service was disappointing, it was slow, and the waiting staff couldn't tell the difference between a Latte...More
