  • We were in town for my daughter’s 8th birthday and we booked a dinner at the American Girl Cafe. Huge mistake. When we arrived, most of the dolls, clothes and accessories had been moved to a new locat...  more »

  • This is a tremendous experience for a young girl. I brought my daughter here a few times and she loves to get immersed in this store. Yes, the items are expensive, but if you can afford it... I think when my daughter is older she will have warm memories of visiting this store and her American Girl Doll.
  • Very nice staff in the cafe. The food is pretty good for the price you pay! Appetizer, dessert and a complimentary drink included in the $20 brunch! Serveral savory and sweet options to choose from. They seat your dolls next to you in the table!
  • I had a great time there. The dolls are beautiful and the outfits were adorable too. Even though a little pricey it was great quality. I also loved the food. The employees were all so friendly and helpful. These dolls let you express your creativity and I do recommend!!!😄
  • Moe from the Salon made it 5 stars! Well this place is expensive for items of plastic, however, which toy of the 21st century is cheap! Anyway having taken out a small mortgage for my little princess we visited the Salon for a doll makeover....yer you heard it right, a makeover for a doll. We had the dolls hair done (after making an appointment!) and her nails coloured. Yes it was expensive but Moe behind the Salon counter was fantastic, really down to earth and a pleasure to talk with, her personality alone gave the experience 5 stars. Thanks Moe
  • Nothing is better than the smile on an eight year olds face. Spent the day (yes, open to 4pm on 5-3-17) and my niece loved every square inch. Fortunately we live close. (If you don't, come during the week and when the kids are in school. We had the store to ourselves.) The woman at the beauty counter was very sweet. Lunch was fabulous and the craft was fun. What a day!

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
