My party of four, including a 3 year old, went to this little place next to Lombardis Pizza when we discovered a long, Friday night line for Lombardis. Hostess could not have been more accommodating, seating us immediately. Prices were very reasonable for New York, and while not Michelin star worthy, our veal parmesan and lasagna were quite satisfying. I... More

Super cosy and appealing Italian restaurant. Interior very rustic, pasta servings ample and delicate and the overall service super. Went there for dinner, but am sure that they do an equally excellent job both morning and midday. Nice place!

When you're in NY with the family, the exchange rate is terrible and you've been out all day and you're starving and cold ... This place is an oasis. Simple, perfect comfort food, beautifully simple, perfectly cooked pasta dishes, reasonable prices and such a cosy welcome. Breakfasts are beautiful too - stacks of pancakes with fruit (too much for one)... More

Very welcoming staff and nice menu for breakfast. We had the granola, pancakes, fruitsalad and scrabbled eggs. All were of great quality and with a quick, and super friendly, service. Love this place and would suggest it to anyone!

I ordered the (sourdough) french toast - only $7.50 - with delicious maple syrup and fresh fruit. My partner ordered the Gravlax eggs benedict. Hit the spot! Unfortunate that it's cash only, but great for beating the brunch lines elsewhere and getting a good value for breakfast!

We spent 4 days in New York and this was probably our best meal - fantastic variations on eggs benedict for brunch, including with gravlox, lovely fresh pancakes, good coffee. Recommended. In a nice quieter part of the city too.

My husband, brother and sister in law had breakfast nearly everyday at Cafe Fiat. We were staying right next store in an apartment. Amazing service, food and ambience. Always felt welcome and Annemarie was an exceptional waitress who is actually the owner. We loved Annemarie so much we wanted to take her home. Annemarie even remembered each of our coffee... More

this was one of the few places we saw yesterday morning that was very busy. We originally popped in just cause my husband needed the restroom but were glad we did. It's very small but cosy. Lots of cool Fiat pictures, memorabilia and models. Service was quick and friendly. Prices were reasonable.

I was in NYC for business and decided on breakfast at Cafe FIAT! Interior is inviting and playful. Food was delicious! Everyone was very nice. Highly recommend if you are looking for food or just a cappuccino.

I had the Gnocchi with bacon green peas and Parmesan cheese sauce. It was incredibly well made and perfectly portioned! The locations was great and the setting was quite which is a nice change from other NYC eateries. 11/10 would recommend!

Staying in Nolita

Neighbourhood Profile
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighbourhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighbourhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
