Located across from Tompkins Square Park, we have been a neighborhood institution since 1984, bringing its residents quality American food and a home away from home. Our menu is a wide range of Americana, from breakfast, burgers and salads, to delicate entrees, delicious desserts and late night cocktails. Join us for happy hour Monday-Friday, 2p.m.-7p.m when draft beer, house wine and well liquor are all buy one, get one! Chef inspired daily dinner specials are also available 7 days a week. Dine with us indoors, or on our sidewalk cafe, and become a part of an East Village tradition! Open 24 hours!
If I were to marry a french fry, it would be from this place! Come for brunch, drinks or dinner and you will not be disappointed.
I could live of the Carrot-Ginger Dressing – I've been enjoying 7A for years, the biggest draw being the carrot ginger dressing on their great salads! Bartenders are great, as are the giant martinis, sometimes servers can be a little aloof. Great for brunch, drinks, dinner, really anytime. theirs often a wait, but never too long.
:) – I've been here a few times after work for a few drinks and some food. They have a good happy hour that starts at like 2pm and goes until 7pm, if i remember correctly. This is perfect for us who get out of work earlier than most others... There isnt a lot of space around the bar especially if you come with more than a few people but i guess it could be worse huh?... Good drinks, Good Happy Hour, Good food, Reason price, Layed back ambiance, Nice staff.
great everyday dinning place – its a very friendly neighborhood restaurant. I just moved there weeks ago, been goin there for a while. great price, average above food
Editorial Review – 24-hour cafe and bar attracts locals on the weekdays, and hungry post-bar revelers on weekends and late nights.
BEST VALUE ANYWHERE!!! – This place is such a great value! The only bad things about is that if you get the wrong table you have a lot of people sort of standing around you while eating but just request a table in the back to diminish that. I had the grilled chicken with salad and it was really good as was the "Decent" red wine. Very trendy, lively atmosphere and can't beat the price.
Where's the rest of it? – While the staff was attentive the food was disappointing. I ordered a special of goat cheese filled ravioli. They presented on a huge plate with a sprig of parsley and 10 pieces of ravioli. The ravioli was hard on the edges and the sauce was not that great. If it weren't for the bread they gave me I might have had to go elsewhere to eat. The portion was very limited. I am a big girl that enjoys eating. This left me thinking...."Where's the Beef". I am not compelled to go back anytime soon. At a dollar ten for each of the 10 little morsels it was not worth 2.00.
Best Brunch - Food, Value & Service – I absolutely love brunches at 7A! Even though it is a popular brunch place, the wait is never more than 20 minutes long (in my experience) and the host/hostess and servers are very efficient and super friendly. The best part of it all is the food--where else in New York City can you get all of the following for a mere $11.95? Coffee or tea & orange juice & choice of an alcoholic beverage (i.e., mimosas, bloody mary, screw driver), plus a hearty portion of delicious entree complete with awesome sides? My personal favorite is french toast with bananas and strawberry butter, and a sausages on the side. The seating outside is wonderful during the warmer days. And they never rush you and keep your coffee cup filled all the time. Just thinking about it is making me hungry...do I really have to wait until the weekend?
Best downtown brunch – Best brunch place yet
I'm a huge brunch person, and this is certainly the best brunch place I've been to. I go every Sunday. Everything on the brunch menu is amazing. i love it.
You've fallen out of favor 7a – I've been enamored with 7A for four years. The food is usually great and I love the fact that it's 24 hours. Last night, however, they broke my heart. After spending the evening the in emergency room, all I wanted to do was sit on my couch and have some dinner. I called at 10 and placed an order for delivery (an hour before they stop). When i called back to inquire about my food at 10:55, I was told that they were sorry, but that it was being packed up at that very moment and would be on its way shortly. At 11:30, I called back and was told my order was lost and that the delivery guy had already gone home for the night. I guess whoever took the order realized the mistake but didn't want to deal with at problem at the end of a shift. It's sad that this is how this restaurant feels it is appropriate to treat a regular customer.
7 years at 7A – I've been going to 7A since 2000, and the food is always excellent.
I was sad when they took my favorite meal off the menu - it was a steamed veggie platter. For the girl who doesn't like vegetables...this was my favorite!
Great atmosphere, even better food.
