Best tasting breakfast during our stay, friendly staff, reasonably priced. That's all I have to say about that.

Good for breakfast; omelettes and benedicts were good, BLT was good, coffee was very good, french toast rather plain, pancakes fine. If we had only eaten breakfast here, it would have received a better rating. The breakfast service was excellent, too. But we made the mistake of returning for dinner when a subway delay left us looking for a quick... More

Formerly Kraft diner, it's moved a bit down the street. It's a bit outside the theatre area but well worth visiting. Great food at great prices. Lots to choose from on the menu but would recommend the Philly burger. No frills, no fuss, great place.

I've Been visiting this restaurant since 1989 (was called Kraft back then) and on a recent trip to NYC I went twice for dinner. Great food, service and the Philly cheeses steaks are excellent.

We stopped in here for breakfast as it was close to where we parked on the West Side. It's small and feels cramped. The staff took our order etc but you would never confuse their attitudes with friendly or courteous. The food was fine...typical diner food.

Very good food, choice of menu and service in this typical American diner in Manhattan. After a long day touring New York this diner, situated near to our hotel, did not disappoint. Burgers were extremely good. Part of our schedule included visiting this type of eatery and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We would recommend that you give it a... More

The prices were reasonable for New York City. The Chicken Tenders were good. I would say higher quality then McDonalds Burger King etc. The fries need salt some kind of sauce. Our waitress was fine. She originally was quick, but then my friend wanted hot tea, and she seemed to forget this. Perhaps I will go again and try something... 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.
