My daughter and I recently dined for breakfast at Cafe 72. Cute little cafe, tastefully decorated, pleasant efficient staff and good food. Menu always has unique daily specials. We arrive near opening as seating fills up fast. But if you do have to wait for table, there is coffee/tea and hot water set up outside for patrons. Great little cafe.

Met a friend for breakfast and I was pleasantly surprised. My breakfast wrap was delicious. This restaurant is clean and the wait staff was great. Hidden gem.

Delicious breakfasts, not the usual specials, very different, waiters, waitresses and staff very friendly and accommodating. More inviting now that it has been remodeled.

Café 72 Café 72 is a “top tier” restaurant serving a breakfast and lunch menu in the Newtown/Yardley, PA and Ewing, NJ area. The diversity of the menu listing coupled with outstanding table service and quality of food sets this restaurant above literally all others. My favorite breakfast servings are: eggs Benedict topped with Cajun shrimp (Yum!) and a bowl... More

The restaurant has the best value in breakfast in the area. The staff are super friendly and very attentive without going overboard. The inside of the restaurant has been completely redone over the past few months. The "trees" that have been used in the decor is very original and gives it a unique flair. My wife and I have this...

Had breakfast there.Animal head hanging over our table. Very uncomfortable. Decour has changed and so has the food. Neither was very good. Sorry to see this happen.

Last Sunday the Family drove to Cafe 72 for a meal out of our general comfort zone. The place was packed but the wait was less than 20 minutes. Our server, Kathy, was attentive, professional and made us feel welcomed. From salads to corned beef hash with Hollandaise sauce and seafood offerings, it was a memorable Sunday afternoon in Ewing...

The owner has done an amazing job with his wife revamping the place. It has the best ambience and the entire menu is amazing! Best traditional eggs Benedict in the whole state, chicken and waffels are to die for, and you have to try the churro French toast. 5 stars everyday!

The expanded menu at cafe 72 is innovative and mouth watering. I'm not big on eating sweets- but my girlfriends devoured the funnel cake fries with cannoli dip, salted caramel and nutella sauces. My spinach and tomato eggs Benedict cooked perfectly. The iced tea is fresh brewed and served in adorable glasses. My whole table devoured breakfast. Servers are very... More

This is a really cute place with an amazing selection of traditional, as well as unique foods for breakfast and lunch (tiramisu pancakes were sensational!) The food was high quality and there was a friendly, busy atmosphere, with welcoming and attentive wait staff. The restaurant was decorated appropriately for the season--it was just fun to be there. We'll have to... More
