A really great place to do everything from just buying a beer to getting dinner, lunch AND EVEN Breakfast the food was Good but the Massive variety makes up for the food being "good" and the fact that the cafe is open 24/7 makes it even better. So yes the food wasn't great but the fact that they had SUCH... More

Not sure exactly how to review because there is just so much.....you can get everything here. I had sushi (really yummy) and my husband had pizza (I stole as much as he would let me!). This was quick and good. Seemed to have a lot of business people eating lunch.

We stoped in here for lunch. Not bad place lots of options for the picky eaters. Different stations for the type of meals you would like. I found it $$$$ for what you get but not bad for the area!

Cafe Duke is my default lunch venue when I am in New York for business. You benefit from a lot of choice and the quality of the food is overall good. The set up privileges those looking to eat lunch back at their desks however a few tables next to the front window and in the back allow you to... More

They have a grill that runs 24/7. We usually get breakfast there. My husband an omelet, I usually get a bagel or croissant with... More

Not a bad place - but not a great place either - it does provide the service that you need for a quick bite - but not somewhere I would choose to go, more a place to go when there is nothing else.

The best and biggest breakfast wraps and sandwiches. Hot and prepared right in front of you. They are really good. The place has so many other kinds of food but this must be their specialty as local people line up in the AM to get their egg fix.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
