Came in here for breakfast. There's seating upstairs. Lots of choice from pastries and muffins to bagels and pancakes. The prices were very reasonable and the staff were really helpful and friendly. We couldn't see what we wanted on the menu so we asked and they couldn't do enough for us. We will be coming back before we leave!

We searched for a restaurant catering for food for our fussy young 5 year old. We found good wholesome food including fresh vegetables. I even had steak and salmon and chicken. The food was fresh and tasted good. A bit pricey but what did I expect in New York. My error. Suggest for budget people as all other restaurants were... More

Stumbled across speedy deli on our first morning in New York. Lots of sandwich choices, slightly more limiting of cooked breakfast unless you went for the buffet option. Service very quick, food pretty good. Paper plates and plastic cutlery if eating in! Tables could be cleaner, but generally not bad. Good value. No wheelchair access to upstairs eating area. Take...

This deli offers a pretty good buffet, sandwiches, pastries all designed in size and weight to make it easy for you to recharge before you go back to strolling the streets of New York or to take back to your...

Speedy's has a huge range of fresh food, all laid out and easy to place in your container. All one price for the container whatever you choose so it's incredible value for money. Super fresh all the time due to really quick turnover. This beats a hotel breakfast hands down, and it's a fraction of the price you would pay... More

This little corner deli has it all. Upstairs seating, hot food buffet, cold food/salad buffet, made to order sandwiches, all the beverages you could ask for, desserts & sweets. Great place to pick up a bite and take it home or to your hotel room, or eat upstairs. I've been many times while in town, and it never disappoints.

Ate here twice for breakfast: amazing selection of good quality at a great price. Everything fresh and supremely tasty. If you have the hot food it is charged by weight so don't load up on the potatoes:-)

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.
