Went to Cafe 59, on a cold evening, based on Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Lots of regulars eating and chatting at the bar. We chose the quieter dining room area and was seated immediately. We started with drinks from an extensive...More

Cafe 59 serves great vegetarian/vegan options, including salads, sandwiches and soups. All for a great price on or off the lunch menu. The Moroccan salad and tomato soup were simple and flavorful. The atmosphere was great too

Had dinner here last night. All three entrees: Chicken Parmesan, Shrimp Scampi and Salmon were delicious. Hard to choose from diverse, tempting menu . Full bar with many beer choices. Topped dinner off with memorable chocolate mousse dessert. Great location too.

The good: the polenta wings were incredible, and the service was excellent. The not-so-good: my "crispy" eggplant parmesan sandwich was soggy, which was really disappointing especially since the literal name of it was "crispy." Also the wine list was really not good, full of cheap,...More

Had lunch here during the Allentown Art Festival and we really enjoyed ourselves. Has an outdoor patio (where we sat) a bar area and dining area - all pretty comfortable, casual and well spaced out. The staff are very friendly and great at making suggestions...More
