We had specials which came with fresh juice, buttermilk pancakes were fluffy and large, bacon crispy and eggs were cooked to perfection wether poached, fried or scrambled.... More

We visited the diner which was across from our hotel on the last night of our trip. Only wish that we would have went there sooner! The food was great and the service even better. We had limited time before going to the theater and we had our food in less than 10 minutes. Can't beat the service! We didn't... More

Great corner location with friendly service and great food. We were walking down the street later in the day than you usual breakfast just hoping we'd run into a diner so we could still have breakfast. Looked up and there it was. Breakfast fast, huge and made to order. Reasonable prices. Very nice waiter.

We ended up having breakfast here three out of the four mornings we were in NYC. The female waitress was excellent and it even got to the point where our drinks... More

We heard about this restaurant from our local Hop On-Hop Off bus guide. Located on 8th street, open 24 hours/day, this restaurant proved to be one of our most enjoyed stops during our NYC stay. The hostess had a great smile and attitude. The wait staff was also very friendly, offering to refill coffee many times. The food was tasty... More
