Great place to meet for a drink and appetizers. Menu is basic and boring and food is average. We don't come here to eat but we do come here to meet up with friends. Big bar that can get a bit crowded for Happy Hour but it is a casual and light atmosphere. Better off getting a table for drinks... More

Very good bar, with nice selection of drinks and bar food. Nice crowd. Only average as a restaurant to take the family. Good if you are in the mood for chicken wings and other bar foods though

We have been going to the Post Office Cafe since the day they opened! The Lessing Family just gets it right. The food is always well prepared and delicious. The beers, wines, and specialty drinks will keep you satisfied. Restaurants in business as long as the PO Cafe are there because they keep folks happy. If you are in the... More

Great service excellent food super friendly atmosphere. We choose this restaurant because of the location in regards to the church the christening was at. They handled our party of 60 with ease. We chose the Skirt steak which was tender and cooked well and was presented looking like a volcano. It was on its side wrapped around the mashed potato's... More

Like the Roman god Jano, Post Office Cafe has two faces. If you go to the bar you find the former: a full bar, nice setting, friendly barman and great ambiance. You can even ask your food in the bar. It may not be the greatest food, but you can enjoy the bar atmosphere. But if you decide to dine,... More

Been to a lot of places in NY since moving, and most do not have the neighborhood bar and grill feel except the Post Office Cafe. Been here on Trivia Night a few times and food is better than well-known wing restaurants, burgers are big with waffle fries, and food is cooked well. My only compliant is that the waitresses...

We always try to eat at a local eatery once a week and the Post Office Cafe is a favorite. Local beers are a favorite. The Killer Mac and Cheese is to die for. The chopped salad is super yummy. The decor and ambiance is very Babylon.

I NEVER eat a hamburger outside of my own kitchen, and rarely even then. But a cousin told me I would not be disappointed because - here's a surprise - the hamburgers are cooked over charcoal. I ate the whole thing ! (It was large and I'm not....) Other entrees looked fabulous but no one wanted to share, although I... More
