We had a very friendly waiter. Service was quick and the food and drinks were delicious. There's a happy hour for cocktails on weekdays until 8pm

We spent a few nights nere this place and ended up there for a dinner. They have a long - even too long - menu with schnitzels & pasta for example, we had burgers, which were actually really tasty. Maybe not worth a longer trip but if you are in the neigborhood it is a good choice.

Tried it for breakfast. Food was over-cooked and tasteless. doesn't seem like a very popular spot and not hard to see why.

This is in an ideal situation for the stadium and any hotels and apartments along Main Road in the Greenpoint area. It's nice in the summer when you can sit on the verandah. The breakfast is very good, but the rest of the food is rather average. They do a good latte though.

Thank you Dodynic for the review. You mention the food is rather average, we value your input - any suggestions on where we can improve, please feel free to tell us! In a nutshell we are trying to cater for a lot of different tastes without breaking the bank. This does not mean we cannot add a bit of "Oomph"... More

I recently got introduced to Cafe Extrablatt on a evening with friends. They provide a great selection of cocktails and pizzas and of course a shisha selection. The staff is most helpful and they provide great service to their guests. It comes highly recommended for a night out with friends.

I enjoy going there for a small lunch or for drinks after work. They have quite a food selection and they have happy hour but most importantly they are very well priced. Staff is friendly and they have their regulars. They screen football and rugby so during these times it is quite rowdy. I love their margaritas and strawberry daiquiris!
