so many cafe nuevas...
« on: June 04, 2010, 08:50:53 PM »
we live on 85th st and 37th ave, why are there so many cafe  nuevas in our area? are they owned by different people? or are they just that popular?

there are 3 i believe. all within 2 blocks. not that their bad, but i just never see that much foot traffic in the largest one, it makes me wonder why they need them all?

id enjoy them a lot more if they served breakfast :p

I think they're very successful and this allowed them to expand. Sometimes the largest one gets packed.  Maybe it depends on time of day. 

I also only know of 2 La Nuevas, but I believe the same family also owns Uruguaya Bakery, which is on the same block as the restaurant La Nueva.

I believe the one on the corner of 85/37 serves breakfast.  I've been going there regularly since they opened and have never been disppointed.

i live on the same block as the one on 85th so im a bit dissapointed that i dont have much use for it. the only thing there i can really eat is the ceaser salad since we dont eat beef or pork. pretty much everything on the menu is pork or beef based.

and they do serve spanish breakfast, but im a boring old american from the midwest so i like things like waffles omelletes grits etc. they only have one american breakfast and its also heavy on the meat :p

sucks too because we love eating outdoors but theres just nothing on the menu for us. and we rarely see more than the rare straggler sitting outside in the outdoor area.
