Tucked away in the far corner of a not-to-busy shopping area on Glen Cove Road, Carle Place, you will find West End Cafe. This venue proves that word-of-mouth is the best advertising. You would never notice if from the street. You need to know where you are going to find it. But once you have been there you will most likely remember the great experience you had and return. It is so popular that reservations are a good idea for both lunch and dinner.
Parking is quite easy with four accessible spaces very close to the street-level, single door entrance. You will find a small entryway and another door to get inside.
Although we used to frequent West End regularly, we had not been here since Covid. I am happy to say that our experience was just as pleasant as we remembered it. The decor is still lovely. The service is just as friendly and efficient as before, and food just as delicious as in the past.
The floors are smooth. A long, full-height bar is to the left. The majority of tables and banquettes require two steps up. There are some tables on the main level. If steps are a problem, ask for a table on the main level. Although not spacious, there is adequate room to navigate. If you need assistance, they will make every effort to accommodate you. Sitting on the main level makes getting the the multi-stall restrooms easier, as you do not have to navigate any steps. The restrooms have an accessible stall and accessible sink. There are no baby-changing facilities.
Now on to the main attraction, the food. We were here for a friend’s birthday luncheon. Since we did not all arrive at the same time, care was taken to offer us drinks as soon as each of us arrived. I did notice that, unfortunately, the delicious bread baskets that used to be on the table were no longer there. Our server could not have been any nicer. He made sure to check that everything was to our liking. The menu was as varied as we had remembered it. As it turned out, we each ordered a salad. Each was different, each was quite large, and each was delicious. The salmon that topped one of the salads was perfectly done. Since it was a birthday, of course we ordered dessert. Also delicious!
We can only say that our birthday luncheon was a big success thanks to West End Cafe.
