It's a good diner, open 24/7 and it delivers so it's very convenient. Not too pricy, good service and the food is great.

I had just arrived in NY after midnight and for main meals had only had breakfast in the early morning, as my flights gave me no time to eat ... so was famished! I looked at their menu and most of it was really rich tasty fare which would have been way too intense for me at that hour... so... More

I was staying at the Local NYC hostel and this place was just a few blocks away. We would all meet here to eat great diner food and complain about our hangovers!

This was my first visit to this restaurant. It is a member of a disappearing breed in NYC, the American diner. The place is done up in classic vaguely Art Deco diner style. Some of the floor tiles and wooden bench ends are starting to show wear. The portions were large and the service attentive. I had the Fisherman's Platter... More

We both tried the pancakes, one with just bacon and the other with bacon, ham, sausage and egg. The portions were very generous but we were not blown away by the... More

Convenient, just under the Court Square 7 station. Appears to be well liked by locals. Food is reasonably priced and the service was very personal.

One of the best diners I have been too. Huge portions, great value and friendly staff. Great selection of cakes too. They will also make something special for you if they have the ingredients. Only downside is you are so full after your main meal you can not fit in the cake.
