Personal "we WANT you here" service from Nikki and her team. When you walk in here for lunch, Nikki, wants to make you not only a very satisfied customer, but a good friend. Cafe West 46 is fabulous for tasty sandwiches, salads, with daily specials. The upstairs room allows for us to have personalized attention when we have birthday parties... More

First time visiting Cafe West 46. I was very impressed by the food quality and selection. It is worth a visit if you are looking for a slightly upscale lunch menu at a great price in a friendly atmosphere.

I had a delicious Banh Mi sandwich and mango iced tea for lunch at Cafe 46. It was delicious! It was my first experience at cafe 46 and I will make it a point to return. The cafe was clean and the staff was friendly.

I had lunch with a group of friends today at the Café West 46. It was our first visit and we all enjoyed our lunches from the delicious soup to the great sandwiches and the huge spinach salad. I recommend making reservations and sitting upstairs. As you enter the café there is a counter which you place and pay for... More

I went here for lunch with my mother and needless to say I would have rather ate a greasy burger at McDonald's and listened to the fryers buzz. The food was decent but too pricey for the portion size. Should I mention the management? I literally watched the manager/owner of the restaurant stand and eat food where the cooks were... More

This is a little residential neighborhood bistro, with innovative, fresh, delicious sandwiches and salads, and a real surprise. Binghamton is becoming a magnet for foodies, and the foodies seem to have discovered this place, and with justification. A few outdoor tables give you the option on these balmy summer days, of a quiet outdoor lunch……enjoy it now, 'cause Binghamton doesn't... More

Nice little cafe'. Definitely healthy addition to the neighborhood, giving the community and HS students a place to get a good quality meal (vs fast food). Our meals have always been tasty. Only problem on our last visit was the air quality. The ventilation may have been the problem making it smoky and strong smell of burning oil. Our clothes,... More

The little cafe on a residential street has ok food but is overpriced for the area. Parking is difficult, in part because the owner parks his Porsche or Mercedes in one of the only two 15- minute spaces in front of the door. Don't mention that, however, or the owner is liable to throw you out as he did me.... More

Food here never disappoints. Love the fruited iced tea, and the bahn mi is wonderful! I could eat loads of their chips. Super friendly staff. And they have outdoor seating on a quiet, pleasant neighborhood street.

We have what's called Restaurant Week here where businesses open their doors to new clients with specials on food, events, etc. The problem is certain management, such as you'll find here, forgets that those people are here today and gone tomorrow. I'm in this place every week. I like to support local business, even if this place costs twice as... More
