THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Yaffa Cafe Restaurant Review

: This café with a colorful garden is home to East Village locals and features an array of decent dishes. Starters include the Middle Eastern platter with hummus, tahini and baba ghanouj; Cajun shrimp with mesclun salad; and tender chicken fingers. The salads are massive enough to be a main course, and actual entrées include vegetable curry; a spinach crêpe with lemon basil sauce and a house salad; and chicken Dijon with mushrooms and artichoke hearts in a mustard cream sauce.
