I don't mind the (relatively) high prices; the quality is good. Ordered from them about six times now - various items, from both bakery and kitchen - and happy with consistency. Always thoughtfully packaged, and arrives fresh, hot and well presented. It's not healthy - but quality ingredients, to indulge in. more

Editorial review from GrubHub 11/30/2012

Absurdly overpriced. I paid nearly 30 dollars for an overcooked, sloppy burger and (literally) 6 french fries. My condiment requests were not honored and it arrived OVER AN HOUR after the estimated delivery time. The food was cold and I felt ill for the rest of the day. I will not be ordering again. more

NEVER AGAIN! 9/26/2011

I used to go there for their amazing pastries, despite their horrible services by obnoxious or overly friendly employees. I see that their service is going down hill. Their cupcakes are stale, but they defend their stuff and they won't listen to their customers. After many very unpleasant incidents, I shared my concern with the owners. They feel the same way: if you don't like us, sorry! They won't miss you if you stop going there, so they say. It's not worth your money for overly priced coffee and other things, yes, they taste good (when they are not stale). That said, NEVER AGAIN! more

The best Cheesy Eggs 2/9/2010

I love breakfast at Kitchenette, and when I say love I mean LOOOOOVEE!! the scrambled eggs with cheese just melt in your mouth, and I love that I can have them for lunch if I'm in the mood. The only drawbacks: It gets crowded quickly, the tables are a little tight to get in and out of, and you might find yourself waiting a bit if it's packed. Pros: You can eat whatever you want, whenever you want Cons: It's a little tight and the service can be slow more

Kitchenette has great breakfast options! 11/6/2009

kitchenette is great for brunch. really cute place with lots of american breakfast food options. the service is okay, and the place is always packed. more

How DO they do it??? 6/20/2009

Everything I've ordered here, from the turkey meatloaf to the blueberry pancakes, not only tastes yummy but like it wasn't made in a restaurant - like it was made for you in someone's kitchen, so I guess Kitchenette is an appropriate name! Usually when the server says 'everything's good' you know they're full of it - not so here :) Prices are slightly higher then average but the portion sizes are MUCH higher than average and you often get a choice of a side or 2. Don't get me started on the bakery case - they make everything fresh on-site and really tests my willpower when I walk by it - probably not a good thing if like me you are trying to watch your waistline. A lot has been mentioned about the brunch wait times and cramped quarters but I've rarely had to wait more than 20 minutes and even at those busy times there's usually a few open seats at the counter for the truly ravenous. Uptown diners also tend to be more courteous about scooting about - if this place was in midtown I'm sure I would be getting bopped upside the head with the overflowing shopping bags of tourists but thankfully it hasn't happened yet! A great neighborhood find!!! Pros: Home Cookin' and Bakin' - mmmmmmm Cons: Occasionally cramped + forget the diet! more

Terrible Service 3/28/2009

Usually when I go for dessert, I love what I order, it's never crowded and service is fine. I went for dinner and it was packed. When they finally took our order, we waited forever to get our food and when everyone else in my party's food did arrive, I was told that what I ordered was unavailable and I had to choose another option, which was terrible. An awful experience which ruined what used to be a fun place to go late at night for cupcakes. Pros: Delicious Desserts Cons: Awful Service more

High Quality Food makes up for Zero room for movement 2/15/2009

Decided to have Sunday Brunch here with a girlfriend of mine. First thing we noticed was about six groups of people standing outside. I felt good because i knew that was a good sign about the place, the only problem was that there was no waiting area inside because it was cold outside. After about a twenty minute wait we were seated. If you love being closely seated next to people you don't know then this is exactly the place to go. I was so afraid of a little boy coughing on my plate I thought I was going to die. After a reasonable wait time out waitress came back with our order. I ordered the Gingerbread Pancakes with Pumpkin Butter along with turkey sausages and strawberry lemonade. The food tasted of fresh, quality ingredients and i truly enjoyed my entire meal. The prices are reasonable but don't waste your money on the $3 biscuit. It's good but I can buy better for less. Overall nice experience, plan to come again. Pros: High Quality Food, Great Service Cons: No Ambience, Noisy, Some items are overpriced more

Comfort Food and friendly service close to Columbia 1/13/2009

Was in the Columbia U area spending the holidays with my sister and went to this place a lot. They use homemade recipes (pancakes are great!) for almost everything, and it is really delicious (though probably not the healthiest!) I tagged along with my sister and her crew for brunch, then returned on my own during the week. Had the same waitress most of the time, megan i think, was really helpful when I was trying to figure out subway directions for my touristy wandering. Will definitely go back next time I'm in town Pros: in house bakery, creative recipes Cons: pricey, neighborhood is so-so more
