My family and I visited Cafe Europa last evening. We dined in the main area near the fireplace - the venue was beautiful and the temperature was perfect on the cold night. We had a mixed time table of the guests at the dinner and...More

I usually stop here in the morning to get a breakfast sandwich ("Bodega breakfast") and some pastries like croissants or their mini pies. Everything's always delicious though it is a little on the expensive side. I'll definitely be back!

First time here. Lovely atmosphere. Candlelit tables. Chicken walnut salad with goat cheese, cranberries, walnuts, spinach and vinaigrette. The best chicken salad I've ever had. I am the only on at the table that ate my plate clean! Then, they bring the dessert menu. Omg....More

The service was excellent and the atmosphere ok. It was noisy inside and out. The fresh fish had a thick coating on it and when peeled away not much fish. Wine was expensive and the amount served was VERY small.

Table for 6 and all but one had the fish special of the day -- a hunk of sea bass with a couple scallops in a tomato-stew-type concoction. It was good but not "to die for." Beet salad was excellent. Lemon cake popular -- again,...More

I believe they stop serving at 2 PM but you probably could linger over coffee. It is a great go to cafe and try the one in Union Hill as well.
