5 Star Rating Incredible vegan food! Open early to get hot savory food by the pound or a salad bar or order off the menu. Amazing taste, texture, and spice and a wide assortment of items and flavors available from the hot bar. Mushroom and soy based protein options. Bread pudding was also delicious and super moist. Would definitely recommend and hope to go back on a future trip.

5 Star Rating I was very skeptical meeting here for lunch, because of the vegetarian menu. But I was happy to discover every dish I sampled to be delicious, even the faux jerked chicken I ordered, with mashed potatoes and plantain. I will definitely be coming back to eat at this place. Oh yeah, the pinapple-banana smoothie was fantastic.

5 Star Rating I visited this lovely cafe all the way from California. I've been following the cafe on IG. This Is some of the best Vegan Food I've ever had. I shared it with my father, he didn't believe it was vegan. I said Yes this is Vegan! He was amazed. The food was fresh, delicious and flavorful.

5 Star Rating Omg just decided to give this place a try after doubting it would be good. This food is delicious. They mastered the vegan chicken wing. The texture is off the hook. I'm coming back!

4 Star Rating Your cashier that is currently there now 10/18/23 is very bad for your business. I have noticed on several occasions I asked very politely about the food menu and she responded with an attitude and try to dismiss me....I really think you need to hire a more mature and responsible employee...She looks very young and had a lot of attitude....she is light skin and works in the evening...Please retrain her and teach her how to communicate with her customers....Regards, a regular customer and with this attitude you will loose a great customer who also tips very well....

2 Star Rating I first came across this restaurant’s food at an event I attended. A few of their dishes was a part of the catering. Their food was absolutely delicious I had the yams, fried whitening fish, and collard greens. Let me warn you if their collard greens were SPICY. I don’t do spices. Even many of the people who love spices also stated it was to spicy. I was in the area and decided to order for lunch. I visited the restaurant in October 2023. I placed my order online so it could be ready for pick up when I arrived. I was disappointed to learn the fried whiting fish is only available through their catering menu. I decided to order the stewed chicken, coconut peas and rice, steamed cabbage, yams, macaroni & cheese, cornbread, and lemonade. When I arrived to the restaurant, I noticed it’s not a sit-down restaurant. Seems like you pick up and go. I was greeted by staff told them I was picking up and they let me know my order was ready. I was so eager to dig into my food. I was expecting the Caribbean flavors and was let down and disappointed in my meal. I even shared with my coworker for her opinion. The best thing out of everything I ordered was the yams and lemonade. The chicken was bland and had no flavor. The peas and rice was okay. The cabbage wasn’t cooked and still too crunchy again no seasoning/flavor. The macaroni and cheese wasn’t good. The cornbread was okay, it has pineapple in it. I don’t think I’ll return and if I do it’ll only be for the yams and lemonade. This didn’t taste anything like Caribbean cuisine. The portion of the food was also really small. My total was about $36.00. This location is accessible via public transportation.

2 Star Rating Horrible experience. Don't even write Instructions if your getting it delivered because they don't listen. I ordered oxtails with white rice and collard greens with a side of sweet potatoes and mac and cheese. I asked them to separate the Mac and yams because I didn't want them touching the meat. They ignored that and smashed everything together in one small container. More than half the container was soggy rice and collard greens. The collard greens were WAY too spicy to eat! Who makes spicy collard greens?? They gave me less then a full table spoon of yams for 5$ smh same with the Mac. At least the Mac and oxtail and sweet potatoes were good but the collard greens ruined the taste of everything because everything was smashed together. I had to scrap it out of my yams.. I'm just so disappointed to have spent over 30$ smh.

5 Star Rating I don’t know if I’m more in love with the Lo-Mein or the prices, but they always sneak in a free cold soda in, which is always nice. Don’t let the lack of reviews fool you, whenever I walk by there’s always a couple people getting their order in. It’s a well kept secret. MaPo bean curd was a-okay. Lo-mein is straight goodness.

5 Star Rating Seafood at here is so incredible fresh. You order then the chef cooked in front of you. Mussel, crab legs, sea bass, scallops, jumbo shrimp, salmon… they have everything. And option to choose your favorite vegetables. Their grilled seafood is so delicious. Healthy option for steaming as well. Their homemade olive is a must try!! The chef is so nice and attentive. I recommend everyone!!

5 Star Rating I recently visited City Fresh Market and had the pleasure of trying their steamed salmon and shrimp with vegetables, and I have to say it was absolutely delicious! The salmon was cooked perfectly and the shrimp were juicy and flavorful. The vegetables were also fresh and cooked to perfection. I appreciated how healthy and satisfying the meal was, and the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend trying the seafood dishes at City Fresh Market, it exceeded my expectations and I will definitely be coming back for more.!!!

5 Star Rating I came in after a dinner rush. The staff was still on point and working hard, when normally workers would be slow. I had just placed my order at a kiosk and the cashier handed me my cup as I walked by. I did not expect that, and it was great as I was dehydrated from my job. Told the manager that the staff was great, as I also saw them work. They worked well compared to other fast food restaurants I observed after a dinner rush.

4 Star Rating This pizza by the slice restaurant really hits the spot when you’re looking for affordable pizza that is solid. For $4.75, you can get 2 large slides of cheese pizza and a fountain drink. This is the perfect amount of food to keep you satisfied. The restaurant didn’t have much variety available when we went, at 9pm on a Friday night, but what they did have available was still fresh.

2 Star Rating Walked in to get an egg and cheese sandwich and waited for five literal minutes while the two guys behind the counter did whatever they were doing, but couldn't be bothered to take the order of the person in front of me in line. So I lost all hope and left. Hello? How about turning around and/or looking up from what you're doing? Because, you know... CUSTOMERS. Maybe these guys were the d-string crew, but that's my experience with this place, and I'm sticking to it.

Never ordered hot food from here until today. Store has a good appearance , very clean, good selection - but the bacon egg and cheese is mid. And that is disappointing. I can’t find a good bacon egg and cheese in Harlem for nothing! Take me back to Brooklyn. 🙄
