Very nice cafe on the corner. Perfectly attainable with the 7 train. The subway station is directly in front of the cafe. The tables are small for 4 persons. We had breakfast for 5 days. Everyday we could discover something new. The servings were large when we chose omelette. My favorite was the Belgian Tropical waffle. Mhm... Absolutely recommended with... More

This is the second time we have travelled as a family to New York and both times we have eaten at the Dorian cafe. Just by the Jackson/ Vernon Boulevard 7 line subway station it is a one stop from the 'big city' but there is nothing touristy about this place. Whether you are going for breakfast, lunch or dinner,... More

Went to the cafe for a break before heading to Manhattan during New Years Eve. Great place to eat and the old waitress treated us like guests at home. Felt quintessentially American where coffee and tea are refilled and orange juice came together with our order. The brunch is all day and offered a variety of choices

We've been here a few times for a late night meal and it is always reliable with a good choice of meals. Easy to get to location on the 7 line one stop from Grand Central Station. We are visiting from Australia and this has a real good local feel to it. Prices are good. We haven't had breakfast there... More

Went in there famished after walking up to LIC from south Williamsburg. The Gyro was very good, so was the Caesars salad. My wife gad the quesedilla. I'm a sucker for diner-style interiors. Great lunch break

Visited the Dorian Cafe twice on our trip. Great food and service - and reasonably priced. We had smoked salmon on Eggs Benedict, omelettes, Reuben sandwich, and a Belgian waffle. All were excellent.

Looks nice from the outside, but the service was really terrible, the waitress was rude and got very angry when I was still making a decision on what to order, and when I did order she brought the wrong items on the plate, when I told her about it she became agitated. She seemed confused most of the time. When... More

A proper American diner breakfast for the kids. NYPD in the booth having coffee, French toast, pancakes, bacon and syrup... Perfect! Friendly and quick service, good busy atmosphere made for a great start to the holiday. Price was fine too.

This was a really nice diner and we had breakfast here 3 times during our 6 days holiday in New York. The pancakes is amazing and the only decent coffee I had during our trip (swedish coffee addicted). The staff was relaxed and nice, came with refills to your coffee and was really polite. I would recommend people to come... More
