    This is one of my favorite places in the city. I love the salmon pot pie, eggplant with goat cheese, avocado toast, and heart of palm salad. Good wine menu too.

    The aioli and Parmesan grilled bread salad is delicious. The herbed goat cheese balls are also great. However the banana dessert (forget what it's called) is not worth it (the pastry itself is so-so)

    Love couscous tower. Definitely try this menu. This venue is small and always crowded. Usually 20-30min wait after you leave your name down. Service is always good

    Cute place with great atmosphere. Sidewalk tables do the trick. Chicken satay and goat cheese salad were marvelous, truly well balanced in flavours. Our host, Lindsey, was a gem of a person!

    The avocado toast is always comforting and satisfying (fyi—Gitane had it on their menu before anyone). Cous cous is another staple and is delicious and filling. Otherwise, it's sadly gone downhill.

    The avocado toast, the waffles and the couscous are amazing. The place is also great. The big problem is: they accept only cash, I loved the food but I hate(and avoid) to use cash :(

    😍 baked eggs with smoked salmon, hearts of palm salad, fresh juices are da 💣. couscous is a lot of food and a tad on the sweet side.

    One of my favorite brunch places in NYC. MUST get the avocado toast. Love the salmon pot pie and moroccan couscous. Meatballs just so so. Sit outside if you can. I adore the waitress outfits :)

    Baked eggs with tomatoes & basil = the best. Loved the olives and oranges appetizer too-- really great depth of flavor! Cute place with good service. I'm still drooling about it.

    Definitely order one of their signature dishes, like the cous cous or the incredibly simple yet really delicious avocado on toast. Read more

    Even the bathroom door is french! Really cool place. Tried the baked egg, basil and tomato, not the best. My heart wanted to order the waffles, so its more my fault. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Avocado toast appetizers to start. Main Courses: Perfectly seasoned Moroccan couscous with merguez sausages & baked pasta (slightly on the heavy/cheesy side but still really good)

    The waiter are very attentive and the cafe itself very cozy and nice. The breakfast was delicious and so was the coffee and the juice pressé!The music was great too btw;)

    Come for brunch, lunch or dinner - the food in this chic café is a consistently delicious mix of French and Moroccan cuisines. The sidewalk tables are perfect for a sunny day.

    Our table had the smoked salmon baked eggs, smoked trout salad, and a stacked eggplant thing with tapenade. It was all absolutely gorgeous.

    Cute little Moroccan inspired cafe. Avocado toast makes the perfect snack while shopping in the area. Also love the arugula & beet salad for a bigger meal.

    The couscous is delicious, filling, and as an added bonus it is an architectural marvel. A photo is worth a thousand words but I was too in awe to take one.

    A cute little French style café in SoHo that's great for brunch. Avocado toast here seems to be a favorite, but I prefer the heartier baked eggs (think shakshuka) with lamb merguez.

    their salads are all awesome, but get the tower of couscous and add the merguez if you're hungry. or get one for the table to share because its freaking delicious.

    Everything in there is so pretty! I think I prefer the decor to the food, but the food is still pretty good. The chicken tower thing we had wasn't great but the avocado toast made up for it.

    Yep, the avocado toast here is great (had a bite of @ryenyc's). Great for breakfast meetings..apparently a lot of other tech people think so too. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Love this cafe. We visit whenever we come to New York. The Moroccan Cous Cous with organic chicken is the best. Be prepared to queue.

    Ask Francesca to get you a kir royal, great way to cool down on a hot night. Chicken sandwich is the way to go, but quite large so you can share it.

    the baked pasta with prosciutto, or as I like to think of it: Mac N Cheese for adults. do it.

    Stop by for a take-away hot chocolate to warm you up while shopping on a cold day in Nolita. In warm weather, have brunch outside. A fab people watching spot! *Cash only!

    Salmon pot pie was interesting - sauce was full of olive flavor. The quinoa salad is delicious. Also get fresh watermelon juice!

    Really cute spot with tasty avocado toast. Lots of dishes are served in "tower" form and looks really good! They are cash only.

    While this place is perpetually packed it's definitely something you have to check out at least once in your life. Get the avocado toast, the couscous and get your people watching on!

    It's worth the wait. Eat at the counter for a change. Consistent quality – the baked eggs are always hot. Add sausages. And have a café creme.

    Try the Avocado Toast - One of my favorite things in New York: avocado toast with pepper flakes at Cafe Gitane. With a strong Anericano on the side.

    The melt-in-your-mouth avocado toasts and the roasted organic chicken sandwich slathered in chipotle mayo sandwich are must-try items.
