Cafe Luka offers a broad menu of reasonable entrees - amazingly inexpensive for Manhattan. Every entree after 5 throws in a choice of Margarita or sangria free. For sure, much more food than I could eat. Best of all is the friendly and helpful staff....More

Lots of great breakfast, lunch and dinner options. It was a diner type menu. I had the corned beef rubin special. Delicious and very lean. Husband had a bagel that was so so and the soup was very salty. Prices were fair for NYC and...More

I ordered poached eggs with hollandaise sauce and lox. The eggs were overcooked, the hollandaise tasted awful (probably from a vending machine) and the lox was probably the cheapest quality salmon they could find. Honestly I'm surprised because breakfast food is usually difficult to mess...More

$8 for two eggs (just 2 eggs nothing else)...I get they need to make a proft but that is nearly a 4,000% markup. Also my pancakes looked and tasted like dessert yellow cake. Guess they ran out of pancake batter?

Had food delivered to our hotel. Food was good and portions were large but they omitted a part of the order. Check delivery order before signing. Ask about hospital patient discounts.
