I asked the security guard at my hotel where I could find the best breakfast near Times Square. He recommended Galaxy. It's not in Time Square but a few blocks away. As a result, it wasn't that crowded. The restaurant looked like and tasted like a standard diner. The service was fine. But the food was neither good nor bad.... More

The Galaxy is a standard diner. The entire staff seems bored. No joy on any of the faces of the employees. The service is SLOW. The food is average. Sloppy omelettes. They make fast-food omelettes, as in, it's just scrambled eggs with ingredients without the scramble. All the ingredients are embedded into the egg. Recommendation: go somewhere else and pay...

Stopped in here for breakfast one morning while staying at a nearby hotel. No trouble getting a table and the waiter was fast in taking my order and serving the food. Nothing fancy, just your basic bacon and eggs, but everything was hot, well cooked, served fast and reasonably priced. The ambiance with the starry, starry night ceiling was funky... More

Reasonably priced breakfast. Good sized portions. Adequate service. If you can't find something on the vast menu that interests you,you should just stay home.

If you are staying near Times Square this diner is perfect for breakfast. Three pancakes with a side of bacon for me and poached eggs with potatoes for my wife with coffee that kept on coming all for 15 bucks is what I call great value in Manhattan. We got there before 9am each morning because it does tend to... More

We ate breakfast at the Galaxy and it was just okay. Prices were in line with other similar breakfast type restaurants in the city. Service was okay and we didn't have to wait too long for the food but one or two us got our food way before the rest of the table which was a little annoying. I would... More

The food was good but you need to make sure you get there early if your eating breakfast because it had a line out the door. They were quick to serve you and it was a fast paced meal so the slogan from Chicago's Ed Debevicks "eat it and beat it" came to mind.

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.
