We say:

Although the decor is a bit rough around the edges, Willburg Cafe is one of our favorite local spots. The breakfast is inexpensive and tasty, our favorite is the egg white platter. Willburg Cafe makes their bread from scratch which is a plus considering the most expensive item on the breakfast menu is $9. The pancakes (buttermilk or whole wheat) are tasty and come with tons of fresh fruit. The lunch and dinner items include many different types of soups, sandwiches, and salads. The coffee is decent, and the waitstaff are extremely nice. The only complaint we have is the fact that they charge for jam which we find unnecessary.

The name bugs me for some reason, but the Willburg Cafe is a clean and friendly sandwich shop that’s big on comfort food and convenience. Have yourself an old-fashioned … tuna melt, or get jiggy with the chicken parmesan. And you can bring your own booze if you like.


  1. i found what looked like white rodent hair in my omelet here, so gross, when i showed the waitress she shrugged and still brought my my bill.

  2. The food is nothing special, and for what it is, over priced.

  3. Well it’s official. I’ve just had the worst food in my 16 years in NY. The hamburger was a frozen patty that you would buy in bulk and it had little bits of hard grizzle and tasted like freezer. The cheese on the grilled cheese wasn’t melted and the tomato on the sandwich was rotten. The french fries were cold, soggy and burned. The salad was wilted and foul smelling. I called to let them know -explaining that I was doing so for them so they would stay in business. The man on the other end grunted something inaudible. Welp, live and learn. DO NOT EAT HERE!
