A brilliant breakfast! None of the pomp and ceremony of the main streets just good honest excellent food served in a very friendly and welcoming establishment. A little escapism from the madness of NYC

Delicious, fresh food. Coffee refill available. Pleasant staff. Great view to 'people watch' and within easy reach of The Hudson Hotel

good food and service overall. Nothing wow buts serves its purpose as a decent restaurant. Burger was good ( the burgers I got in new York tended to have a somewhat greasy sort of feel in my mouth, this one had that grilled feel. Anyway, an ok place as I already stated.

This was our first place to come after arriving in NYC. The service was incredibly sub par and fairly disappointing; no one came around to check on us and often had to be flagged down. The burgers weren't too bad, but my mom's pasta was under cooked. Several menu items were not available. Staff seemed unenthusiastic. We had our bill... More

We waited about 20 minutes to get a table and overall while waiting looked at the surroundings which appear to be pretty clean. The food was pretty good I had eggs and sausage with hashbrowns. There was a line outside some people must enjoy it go there early,ask for a window seat so you can people watch

This is a great little Diner. Generally very busy - but you will be seated very quickly by the super efficient staff. The food is great - just what you expect from a good Diner. We had breakfast here a number of times.

Always good to see a place as busy as found it. Compensative breakfast menu. Would be a repeat customer.

Me and my 3 adult children were staying nearby and decided to eat breakfast here. Yes, it is small. Yes, it can be crowded at breakfast time. But this is New York! And it is authentic and bustling and we loved it. We ate here for breakfast two days in a row and the food was excellent both days. Good,... More

While waiting for my food, I noticed the same rag was used to clean table after table...yuck. I ordered an omelette with no toast and potatoes crispy.. it arrived with potatoes soggy and barely warm, and white toast. Our waitress checked on us as our plates were beings cleared. Hubby thought his wrap was ok, but mostly filled with chopped... More

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.
