Healthy wholesome breakfasts

We had a breakfast and a lunch here during our stay in NYC. Personally I like the idea of the communal table but can't say we made new friends here ! The service at breakfast was fine, at lunch they were struggling - people just kept coming but they kept going and tried to serve everyone as quick... read more

Went there with a family of 6 for breakfast twice. Staff is friendly, they offer a large choice, and the coffee is really good. Bread is fantastic. I might be a bit overpositive, so I add out of honesty that I am also a belgian.

We popped in here for a coffee and a hot chocolate, they were both served in bowls, the hot chocolate came as a bowl of hot milk into which you added a jug of melted chocolate...yummy!!

I don't write negative reviews except here I was disappointed. I came in to get a snack at 5 pm after walking through Bryant Park. After a 20 minute wait on line to get in when there were plenty of tables.. then waited another 20 to get a chocolate chip cookie and a mimosa. My son was waiting for soup... More

Tried two of the breakfast sandwiches. The salmon was great. The french toast was a little on the dry side, but other than that, quite good.

Popped in after we arrived in town for a quick bite. Has an awesome warm goat cheese salad and hot ginger/lemon beverage. The bread here is terrific. This location is a bit loud and the service was not great but I would go back the next time I'm near Bryant Park looking for a healthy quick lunch or dinner.

The atmosphere is trendy but comfortable. Service was average and frankly a little slow especially since there were very few other diners when we arrived. Despite the service issue, I would return primarily for the diverse ORGANIC food options (soups, salads, etc.) they offer. Also, the have some "gluten-free" choices as well. I ordered and totally enjoyed the open-faced turkey... More

All their food is organic..sandwiches served open-face.. I had the ham and guyere cheese on whole grain bread, served with pickles and olives..very good..cheese was very fresh! The coffee was served in a cute little pot and you drink it out of a cute little bowl instead of a cup..the coffee was excellent! The restaurant serves homemade bakery items..I passed... More

Staying in Midtown

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.
