Recently I sat down for lunch at the Rock Center Cafe located in Rockefeller Center where everyone comes to Ice Skate or see the enormous Christmas Tree.

Sometimes I forget what I have in my wallet and came across a $50 gift card to Rock Center Cafe. I was in the area and it was a hot day out so I decided to give it a try. I knew by the looks of the restaurant I might have to add to my bill but was going to try and not go over. The see-through elevator takes you downstairs. You have the option of sitting outdoors under the umbrellas or indoors under the air conditioner. Well I already told you it was a hot day so you should know where I sat.

They served me water immediately but after that it took a little longer for a waiter. It wasn’t crowded, the menu wasn’t complicated so I don’t know why they were so slow. Finally a waiter came and took my order. I asked for an appetizer to start which was a wedge salad which was good. My lunch came a few minutes after. I ordered a well done cheese urged which came with frites. It had too many pickles which I immediately removed. The sauce was a thousand island type of dressing served in the side. The burger and fries were good. They cooked it just right but you have to chew slow because it is thick.

I also took a chance and ordered dessert. I had the key lime pie with blueberry compote and sweet whipped cream. All I have to say is when they sat that plate down my eyes bugged out. The menu said “desserts to share”, and now I see why. That was the biggest piece of pie even for me and I eat a lot, Lol. I tried my best to finish it all but it wasn’t happening. I did manage to eat all the whipped cream which is my favorite. I love making fresh whipped cream.

The restaurant itself is very beautiful inside and outside and is family friendly. I think if I had to spend my own money I would skip the restaurant and go straight to the ice skating rink. The prices aren’t that bad but I can make the same wedge salad at home much cheaper and feed my entire family. The bill wasn’t bad. I went over by $1 and some change plus had to add a tip.

I also had to mention to the hostess that the women’s restroom had to be stocked with toilet tissue. The bathroom attendant left rolls on the sink not in the stalls. I had to pass a few rolls to some of the women inside.

I took pictures of the food and the restaurant.
