Back to the classics. While Cafeteria has been around since the 90's, it is far from a has-been. It maintains a popularity and with good reason. American comfort with value. Yes, there may be some attitude, but that is what you are paying for. I was there twice in the last two weeks and satisfied with both meals and ambience. The first time, we were seated by a big, beautiful drag queen and I loved it. The tomato soup with crème fraiche is delish. The biscuits that come with were a great surprise. Big bold flavor. You could go with a soup and half-sammie for $11 and be full. The mac and cheese for $9- cheddar and fontina was quite good. Especially loved the meatloaf with garlic mashed, green beans and tomato relish for $18. The entrees top out at $25 which is reasonable for prime Chelsea/Flatiron. The best part is the seating for four-tops on the corner and by the windowed front. Iconic! GO!
