I really love this little cafe! The coffee is tasty and there are plenty of great pastries to choose from if your hungry. There is always a spot to sit and enjoy the atmosphere. Great service

Again, you've stumbled upon a bit of the Mediterranean in Downtown NY. Great breakfasts, including shakshuka, the cooked egg dish you'll find in Israel. Great scones and pastries, and very good service. Inside you can sit at a high top or a table or the...More

Just the small-scale charm you are looking for in Soho. Large coffee chains do not have a chance in their uniformity.Sympathetic service and a place to choose an extra block walk for.

If you're in SoHo and want a breakfast, do not hesitate go to Once upon a tart. Pies, cupcakes, cappuccino, everything was good. We had them on their chairs outside, perfect moment

Attentive kind service and mouth watering options. Our family ordered the fruit tart, pancakes, the English muffin sandwich, the croissant sandwich and the Broc cheddar quiche. Excellent. Everything delicious, fresh, and perfectly portion. What a find!

We were treated very badly by a male staff. He was so rude that we ordered only a round of drinks and left. I wonder why service in NY is bad in general. This is place in particular is the worst I've ever been.

Once the artistic hub of New York City, SoHo (South of
Houston) is now one of the premiere shopping
destinations in the world. Housing everything from the
most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you
won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated
shopper’s dream come true. Broadway teems with
big-name stores and people during the day, while
Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to

Beloved by the community since its inception, Once Upon a Tart is a bakery, coffee shop, cozy neighborhood restaurant, and caterer spread between two historic storefronts on Sullivan Street in New York City. One storefront holds all of our classic baked goods and a coffee shop. The other side is a full-service restaurant with home-style cooking in a casual setting.
