Udon is actually surprisingly good for around 7$
Try all the different chicken wraps. Each is a unique color.
What's NOT good? Chicken "breast" - jerky is more like it
Cafe Disappointment excels at nothing but has a wide variety of lunch options to choose from.
Get the kimchi fried rice.
The is THE best place to grab a mediocre lunch
The godfather sandwich may have taken a small piece of my soul...in a good way
Lots of options here, good for grabbing something quick to go
You can find literally everything in there. Nice cafe!
Really good udon station.
New quinoa bowls, hot prepared on spot with kale and vegetables
shortcut between mercer and broadway via back entrance
Salad bar is good but avoid the grilled chicken and go for the grilled vegetables and spicy shrimp dish.
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)..
Has a little of everything. Food is fast, affordable, and convenient.
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
Not the best place in the area but good for fast cheap lunches. The Ramen is slightly impressive. Ridiculous selection.
Buffet deli with tossed salad bar and hot food, better than the usual version of a deli in nyc
Get the udon. You won't be sorry you did. #nomnom
Quickest, cheap lunch in Soho with literally anything you want. Make your own salad = 5 toppings $8. Line always looks long but moves fast.
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!
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.
Say what you will about the quality, but it's easily the quickest lunch grab in SoHo.
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.
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!
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!
Worst cafe duke. Go to the one in midtown instead.
Don't get the smoothies.
Kind of a crowded mess at lunch, but the food is decent (though a tad on the expensive side).
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.
Please don't try the coffee !!!
$3 beers. Place is cheap with good food but they need to bump up the a/c
Turkey Burger with Avocado is the way to go.
Don't eat here! Dirty and very rude staff.
Do you like salad? Do you like salad that tastes like dirt? Eat here!
Great hotbar! We also really love the ramen!
These dudes use instant ramen and proceed to charge 9 bucks for it. Eff that noise.
Home away from home for Equinox trainers! Fresh food!
Count your change carefully here
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.
Get the udon
Have your cash ready in hand by the checkout! They are seriously fast in checking out lots of people at once.
Their sushis suck
Can't go wrong with the salad!
General order anything or make your own plate place in soho.
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.
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.
