I alwasy eat at the Bar if by myself, lots of local singles, chatty bartender, real Bistro food . With a friend, I like to sit side by side on the banquettes, as they do in Paris, I feel as though I'm in Paris here

French Roast has been my regular neighbourhood cafe for over 5 years. It has been losing quality and increasing prices, making the menu less appealing. The service has also suffered, with little attention paid to the customer. While its location is still unbeatable, it is no longer worth the visit and no longer matches the competition from other cafes in... More

My wife and I have been going to French Roast for years. Well, this past Friday was the last. There is no baguette, there is no real French food, Dean Martin was singing " That's Amore" and "Volare" in the background. Don't get me wrong; I love Italy. But we didn't go to Eatily, we went to French Roast! We... More

Place had a dinner price fixe menu which we tried. Food was superb but desserts were a bit too sweet for me. Wine choice of was vast. A great place for a date.

We were quite excited to try this French themed cafe for breakfast. Server error soured the meal. The menu listed oatmeal with berries and bananas and I expected the 3 things listed: a bowl of oatmeal with berries and bananas. What I received was a bowl of oatmeal with a mixed fruit bowl poured on top. Cantaloupe (ew), honeydew, pineapple... More

Always busy when I've been on a weekend, and that is probably because they cook their food just right! I generally go for a variation on poached eggs and hollandaise (Paris jambon; smoked salmon), but I have tried other items that were also good. I also really like their cappuccinos too.

I have passed French Roast for years and never stopped in until the other night. It is a busy place, tightly packed tables with a high noise level, The food was great,. I had the salmon - superbly done, probably the best grilled salmon I've ever had. They have a Happy Hour special. When I inquired I was told it... More

The good: the food tastes good The bad: the menu is not always a good indicator of what you get. Example: Tomato and Goat Cheese Croquette gets you a salad of pretty-good-for-winter tomatos and 3 marble-sized goat cheese 'croquettes'. We were so surprised that something with top billing was such a small part of the plate that we asked the... More

I been coming here for years. I worked around the corner in the 90s so I am happy to this place still serving great food, great coffee and good cocktails. I almost don't want rave too much because part of its charm is that is not a heavily visited place I always find good seating. Awesome views for people watching... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
