Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This café is right across from The Club Quarters Hotel and serves food all day until 9pm. There are cold counters with fruit, juices, yogurts etc., baked goods, a hot food bar for freshly cooked breakfast items including French toast, pancakes, hot sandwiches and a...buffet section with more salad than I have ever laid eyes on plus hot food such as noodles, rice, chicken wings, veggie food (even at 9am!) all together with freshly brewed coffee. Tables are typical café style and you order and pay at counters. Simple, good food in a simple setting for a good price with more seating upstairs. Highly recommend :)More

I ordered the Western Omelette with bacon vs ham and it was so good that I went back a few days later and got the same thing again. It is a meal in itself and taste wonderful. The omelette is on a mayonnaise roll which...is soft and very flavorful which helps make the sandwich delicious. After receiving your food there are a few tables inside to enjoy your meal which is convenient when the weather outside is challenging. I highly recommend this restaurant not only for the food but for the service in the grill area, the guys working there are very accommodating and friendly.More

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

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
