If you think “too much garlic” is a reasonable criticism, head elsewhere. And that’s fine with the rest of us, who’ll gladly take your table and unwind at this warmly lit, white-walled garden-level café, frequented by a chill international East Village crowd. Here, you’ll eat simple, filling Moroccan food with nice touches, like fresh shallots in the broth for mussels (a frequent special) and extremely tasty olive oil drizzled atop hummus and baba ghanoush; the mixed platter comes with both, as well as exceptional tabouli.

This place is a Mediterranean food staple for me. I love the decor as well as the price of the entrees, which never reach above $20.

Cafe Mogador is one of those places that just never fails - year after year, meal after meal, every time i come here it's an overall delightful experience: good service, good ambiance, delicious food, yummy wine and beer. What else can you hope for?


Every single thing in the menu is delicious, so you can feel confident experimenting. My favorites include:


Tabouleh

Chicken kebabs with arabic salad, yogurt sauce, and basmati rice

Salmon Nicouise Salad

Labne

Any of their Tagines


If you like middle eastern food, Cafe Mogador is where it's at!

I love this place. I've only been for dinner here and the steak is so yummy. Super juicy and flavorful. I pair it with a nice glass of wine and that to me is the perfect night. The service is very good and I would go there to eat every night if I could.

This is a neighborhood favorite. The Moroccan menu is popular both at brunch and for late-night dining. The full bar offers a large variety of fairly priced cocktails. But the main draw here are the various tagines and couscous dishes. The ambience is lively and warm, day and night. On a balmy night, sitting outside is an ideal choice. But beware the lines at brunch and dinner—you may be waiting a little bit. Luckily, the space is big enough that your patience will be rewarded in time. The halloumi eggs are a favorite, as well as the grilled salmon. But a tasty treat is the fried okra atop the veggie couscous. You will want to eat a whole bag.
