Yaffa Cafe: "hip, cheap, healthy, and convenient" Yaffa Cafe - CLOSED Tip by rephluxx

Yaffa Cafe - CLOSED, New York City: 4 reviews and 2 photos

amazing for the money. this is what a diner would be if it was gourmet and served an ecletic mix of asian, italian, and middle eastern. most dishes have a delicious veggie slant to them. these dishes are available as long as the cafe is ... as they say "open always." forget that though ... THE AMBIENCE. i cannot even begin to describe how cool it is. basically take the hippest kitchiest place you've been and multiply it by ten, and then fill it up with new york's finest hippest and wackiest at four in the morning. beautiful. oh yes ... they give you free yaffa cafe condoms at the end of the night.

Favorite Dish: that would a many way tie between: the middle eastern platter, yaffa salad, avocado melt, and tofu veggie stir fry. not to mention all the pasta dishes i've tried. everything above is a solid good dish. the portions are filling and not priced like many other unaffordable nyc eateries.
