The service, the food, the atmosphere and value is outstanding. Just a 10 min walk from our hotel where you paid twice as much for the same thing so glad we found this authentic Diner. We ate far too much but breakfast set us up...More

Restaurant was filled with locals, a good sign. Food was served piping hot and with great service. I had the sweet potato and corned beef hash... Amazing!! All the dishes that passed by our table looked mouth watering. Will most certainly return.

True, the decor is pleasantly retrò and the food is good (not cheap) but we were disappointed by the coldness of the waiters. Incredibly, the tip is mandatory and already charged on the bill.

We went to the comfort dinner for breakfast for the 4 days of our stay in New York. Every morning we had something different and excellent food every time. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend a visit.

The waitress was lovely and very helpful and we loved our food. We went early and it was still busy. A proper old school American diner where workers still go. Portions are huge and very well priced. Pancakes were great!

Great diner for breakfast. The staff is very friendly and go out of their way to be helpful. Pancakes are very good and they got the bacon crispy.

Dress code is as you are very informal it's a diner not a formal type restaurant . Think you can make reservation and it's open all day if I remember rightly
