Right by Union Square this was the perfect place when I couldn't sleep. Apple pie, ice cream and a mocha at 4am. Staff were friendly, nice atmosphere for being in the middle of the night. Apple pie was beautiful.

The diner was close to chancellor hotel. They serve big portions and the prices was reasonable. We enjoyed the 50's diner with an old car and a statue of Elvis. Excellant service.
