    Udon is actually surprisingly good for around 7$

    Try all the different chicken wraps. Each is a unique color.

    Max Sklar · September 2
  • Andy C.

    What's NOT good? Chicken "breast" - jerky is more like it

    Andy Chapman · June 15

    Cafe Disappointment excels at nothing but has a wide variety of lunch options to choose from.

    Kris Concepcion · June 13
  • Denis S.

    Get the kimchi fried rice.

    Denis Sosnovtsev · March 1

    The is THE best place to grab a mediocre lunch

    Keith Kerr · February 20

    The godfather sandwich may have taken a small piece of my a good way

    Justin Abuzid · February 4
  • Matthew M.

    Lots of options here, good for grabbing something quick to go

    Matthew Michihara · December 22, 2014

    You can find literally everything in there. Nice cafe!

    Enrico S · December 4, 2014
  • Clarissa B.

    Really good udon station.

    Clarissa Blanco · November 15, 2014

    New quinoa bowls, hot prepared on spot with kale and vegetables

    shortcut between mercer and broadway via back entrance

    Nate Folkert · September 11, 2014
  • Sam G.

    Salad bar is good but avoid the grilled chicken and go for the grilled vegetables and spicy shrimp dish.

    Sam Grossberg · September 8, 2014
  • Andrew C.

    For $8.95 (+tax), you can have a delicious lunch for champions: SPICY CHICKEN! Order across from the salad bar. (P.s. It's not that spicy. More like medium. Medium spicy chicken)..

    Andrew Cerda · August 15, 2014
  • Audrey O.

    Has a little of everything. Food is fast, affordable, and convenient.

    Audrey O · August 14, 2014
  • Patrick K.

    Their breakfast sandwiches really hit the spot! Particularly their egg sausage muffins. Their French Toast ain't shabby either.

    $4 omelette for dos hangover dayz

  • Scott S.

    Not the best place in the area but good for fast cheap lunches. The Ramen is slightly impressive. Ridiculous selection.

    Scott Sklar · July 21, 2014
  • Jeffrey G.

    Buffet deli with tossed salad bar and hot food, better than the usual version of a deli in nyc

    Jeffrey Glueck · June 27, 2014
  • Karl B.

    Get the udon. You won't be sorry you did. #nomnom

    Karl B · June 24, 2014

    Quickest, cheap lunch in Soho with literally anything you want. Make your own salad = 5 toppings $8. Line always looks long but moves fast.

    David Greenberger · April 18, 2014

    PRO TIP: There is a back entrance on Mercer that lets you avoid the Broadway pedestrian traffic and skip the slow folks getting into the depths of Cafe Duke!

    Eric Friedman · April 16, 2014
  • Andrew C.

    Nutella & go snacks are $3.49. Or, you can walk for 3 minutes and 49 seconds to Duane Reed and buy the same thing for $0.99.

    Andrew Cerda · April 9, 2014
  • Ray L.

    Say what you will about the quality, but it's easily the quickest lunch grab in SoHo.

    Ray Lin · April 3, 2014
  • Eric F.

    Did you know there is an entrance for this place on Mercer? Avoid the tourists on Broadway and head around the corner to the land of cobblestones, slower times, and an entrance off the beaten path.

    Eric Friedman · January 28, 2014
  • Eric F.

    If you made it here for a quick fast lunch you are in for lots of options; sushi, korean, pasta station, salad - this place has it all. Try the ramen if its cold!

    Eric Friedman · January 10, 2014

    Standing at the salad line reading this? Here's the Denny Special™: grilled chicken, avocado, mozzarella balls, diced tomatoes, peppers, egg white, oil & vinegar, salt & pepper. #YoureWelcome

    The bulgogi is great!

    Yan Liang Sim · December 20, 2013

    Worst cafe duke. Go to the one in midtown instead.

    Emily Passer · December 10, 2013
  • William R.

    Don't get the smoothies.

    William Rader · August 17, 2013
  • Lisa G.

    Kind of a crowded mess at lunch, but the food is decent (though a tad on the expensive side).

    Lisa Gansky · August 13, 2013
  • ZenFoodster Eats

    Not that the spicy tuna roll wasn't okay-fresh & average-grade (tuna) fish that you'd find in any typical deli or supermarket but the spicy mayo wasn't all that good. They used a cheaper, sweet mayo.

    ZenFoodster Eats · June 4, 2013
  • Rene K.

    Please don't try the coffee !!!

    Rene Klock · May 26, 2013
  • John G.

    Garlic melt.

    John Gallagher · May 24, 2013
  • Lisa L.

    $3 beers. Place is cheap with good food but they need to bump up the a/c

    Lisa L · May 23, 2013
  • Lisa D.

    Turkey Burger with Avocado is the way to go.

    Lisa DiCarlucci · April 26, 2013
  • Jenna B.

    Don't eat here! Dirty and very rude staff.

    Jenna Bickelmann · April 25, 2013
  • Anna F.

    Do you like salad? Do you like salad that tastes like dirt? Eat here!

    Anna Frenkel · April 17, 2013
  • Contently HQ

    Great hotbar! We also really love the ramen!

    Contently HQ · April 15, 2013
  • Nickolaus S.

    These dudes use instant ramen and proceed to charge 9 bucks for it. Eff that noise.

    Nickolaus Sugai · March 27, 2013
  • Lynn B.

    Home away from home for Equinox trainers! Fresh food!

    Lynn B · March 7, 2013
  • I B.

    Count your change carefully here

    I B · March 6, 2013
  • J C.

    Spinach salad with 6 ingredients is a steal at $7. I go breaded chicken, egg whites, red beans, avocado, olives, baby corn. Ignore those salad snobs who insist on paying north of $10 at Dean&Deluca.

    J Crowley · February 4, 2013
  • David H.

    Get the udon

    David Hu · January 24, 2013
  • Grace R.

    Have your cash ready in hand by the checkout! They are seriously fast in checking out lots of people at once.

    Grace Robertson · January 15, 2013
  • Laurent R.

    Their sushis suck

    Laurent Raufaste · December 12, 2012
  • Adam P.

    Can't go wrong with the salad!

    Adam Poswolsky · November 30, 2012
  • Max S.

    General order anything or make your own plate place in soho.

    Max Sklar · October 22, 2012
  • Michael T.

    Your basic hero is definitely a two person lunch. Four bucks a piece for some fresh and healthy eats. Can't go wrong. Also low traffic for SoHo.

    Michael Trainor · October 9, 2012
  • Willa K.

    The salad bar is a bit more expensive than some of the other places nearby if you opt for the large but it's MASSIVE. Go with the small: 6 toppings (dayum) for $7.95.

    Willa Kroll · September 21, 2012
