Breakfast with 2 eggs and bacon on a kaiser/hamburger roll for $4.25 is such a great price. Condiments are available (or on request). Large coffee was $2.50. That beats our hotel that was charging almost $20/person. Breakfast roll was great, and considering hubby and I...are on a diet, as always trying to manage weight (sometimes successfully :) , we were able to share the breakfast roll and be satisfied. The deli has a good selection of breakfast options. There is an area to sit down and enjoy your food. This place also functions as a mini grocery. Would recommend this place.More

Amazing variety of sandwiches and hot food; serve yourself salad bar, including great fruit selections. Overheated, dingy eating area on an upper mezzanine level, but it’s no-nonsense good, just part of a big city that just gets on with it.

Great little deli-style cafe in the heart of NYC. Just down the road from the main attractions. Pick from the bar or cooked to order. I had a breakfast bagel with turkey bacon, egg whites and avacado. $7.45 - very tasty!

We came here several times for our breakfast. Staff makes requested meal while you wait but it takes very little time. We especially liked the bagels and egg wraps. There is surprisingly large areas for seating (upstairs). Prices are moderate.

We stopped for lunch here. The array of sandwiches was amazing. I had chicken noodle soup which was great and an Italian sandwich which was superb. My husband had the spaghetti and meatballs which was fine. The cheesecake was historic. Service was friendly and helpful....All in all a very nice dining experience and a place we would return to any time!More

The food selection was great and very fresh and laid out beautifully, we arrived before lunch crowd , they can get busy. The counter staff need to learn to be friendlier 😊

We had breakfast here. It was okay, although a little confusing about where/how to order. Not particularly comfortable to sit in for breakfast and not very friendly service. It was okay, but there are better places nearby.

This place has a great selection of home cooked, freshly prepared items. I visited for breakfast every day on my recent stay. I was served quickly each time and the food was delicious. Good value - a real find!! Breakfast buffet is $7.99 a pound...and they also do the full range of freshly prepared sandwiches. I didn’t visit for other meals as was travelling with a vegan but I would not hesitate to use as a casual dining optionMore

Fantastic place for food on the go and lots of seating. There is so many different things to chose from and great value for New York, the prices are steep in the area where this cafe is but don’t let value for money fool you...into thinking the quality isn’t good. Some of the staff can be a bit moody but some were also very friendly. They have chefs who make fresh sandwiches, pizza counter and they also make hot breakfast items to order. My husband had an omelette which was very filling but he enjoyed. I enjoyed the fresh fruit buffet selection and muffins. We went here for breakfast for most of our 8 night stay and loved it! I recommend this to all!More
