Description: Ignore all the photos on their website. The place was updated to a wonderful diner motif about a year ago. It didn't change the food, however, which has always been "very good restaurant" quality.

Been here for lunch twice now. They were friendly, and got us in and out in under an hour, so they are used to the average lunch break timing. I've had a burger, and taco salad, and a blueberry muffin (for breakfast once) and all were really good. Service was nice enough, it's often crowded, but that's good, I think.... More

We were here for lunch November 1. Place was dirty, understaffed, water was leaking from ceiling. Food was pretty good, and that's why I'm giving it two stars.

We discovered this busy but well organised 24 hour neighbourhood diner in the middle of a sleepless night in a nearby AirB&B after a flight from the UK. After that, we breakfasted there daily. From the outside, it gleams with shiny metal and glass reminiscent of 1950s movies. Inside it is bright, clean and comfortable, and the service is friendly,... More

It's a good place to have a breakfast, lunch or dinner. The staffs are really nice, and the food is really good. Your glass never stay empty, they're always filling your glass. Maybe the price isn't so cheap, when I went there I spent 20 bucks for a dish and a beverage.

Its my home kitchen, except that i dont cook, clean, or shop...i just pay. The service is great, especially when its Bianca's shift. Specials of the day are often fresh and good, prices are reasonable, portions are big, and place is clean.

Although recently renovated it has been done so in the proper 50's style. We got a really warm welcome from the waiting staff and were not disappointed with the food - LARGE portion alert! We had breakfast here twice and both times it was great. They are open 24/7 - so if you wake up in the middle of the... More

Me and my husband went here a lot when we were on holiday in New York. It feels very authentic, the staff is friendly and the food is plenty. Great for hangovers!

Travelled to NYC with my daughter. We tried the diner on our first morning and ate their every evening. All the food we chose was the best especially the burgers and chocolate fudge cake. Staff were really nice and one of the guys even lent me his mobile phone to ring the hotel. Excellent place...can't wait to return.
