A taste of Eastern Europe, seasoned with a liberal dash of downtown Manhattan. – In Short
This East Village 24-hour eatery is equal parts diner dive, hipster hangout and old-style Russian staple. Not glitzy, but generous, it remains a warm, inexpensive oasis on the continuously gentrifying Avenue A. The menu reads like a diner in Odessa: kasha varnishkes, blintzes, borscht and more cabbage incarnations than you can count.
Bi-Mix Goth Cafe at night – It was a casual environment with a mixed crowd and an excellent place to go to meet your friends before bar hopping, but not to hook up with anyone.
Ahh, comfort – THIS is my idea of comfort food. Stuffed cabbage and piergoies when I want something rich/ the mediterranean salad when I need something light. They'll never win any awards for the food, but there's really nothing to complain about either.
Great diner with Eastern European flair – The standard diner fare is good, but the Eastern European dishes are the best. The pierogies, potato pancakes and stuffed cabbage are consistently fresh and delicious (and pretty cheap).
Delicious – Food is good anytime of the day: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Pretty cheap considering other places in the neighborhood. They also have a really good brunch menu on the weekends. I love the steak and eggs with a bloody mary that costs around $7 bucks.
Fastest Diner Ever – Odessa's is one of the best places for breakfast no matter what time of day you eat it. The homefries are delicious. Your food seems to be almost immediately brought to you. It is great.
