Great coffee served cold

Been to others in NYC and had great service but this one was brutal. Watched guest after guest wait to be seated as we had wondering if it was "seat yourself". Those that did, including us, sat in an unmarked closed section and were told to move. Their coffee, which is excellent, was served cold in... read more

Well the title summarizes the experience. It was over $50 for two people to eat breakfast, and we don't eat much. We were both wearing our jackets the whole time and still freezing. We waited over 50 minutes for our food- a salad and a three minute egg. When the egg came, it wasn't even cooked. And the salad was... More

The food we had was good, expensive but good. Maybe it is me, but I don't care if the T-shirts worn by the staff are made from organic cotton. Service was slow and had to ask for things - repeatedly. Maybe I'm too old or not hip enough.

Love eating here! Had lunch and breakfast on our recent visit to NYC. Lunch - had to get the bread basket with spreads and then we had some delicious soup. For breakfast we shared a bread basket, smoked salmon, and fruit. Highly recommend!

Something a little different to the usual NYC eatery and I loved it. Table service was excellent with nothing being too much trouble. The menu offered a good selection but they were happy to accommodate my dietary requests. A very nice find in NYC and well worth a visit. Highly recommend. Serves good coffee too!

Much better than the NY deli scene for a change of pace. Lots of interesting healthy and vegetarian options too. Quiches, frittata, salads and soups all rated excellent by guests at my table. It is crowded and snug but aren't all great NYC restaurants during lunch rush? Fresh, organic, whole grain options abound. I would go back often if I... More

This is a chain, and I often go there for lunch. Wonderful healthy meals, all organic I thinks and very consistent. The best bread in town and great bakery.

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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 paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit 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.
