I had some breakfast here.

I stumbled upon this place looking for breakfast. Good selection of basic breakfast that you can compose yourself. Left happy.

If you are looking for diner food at OK prices, this place is one of the better locations in Midtown West. Service is so-so. Food is so-so. Price is so-so. Location is just one or two blocks off the busy 8th Avenue. The location is a bit more relaxed than other diners in this area.

Wow, you definitely won't leave hungry at this diner. Generous portion sizes and tasty food is served at this diner on 42nd street just 5mins from Times Square. It may not look like an authentic American diner but don't let that put you off, the waiting staff are very attentive and I felt comfortable to order the food how I... More

Just the type of diner that I expect to be the typical NY diner. Simple concept, clear menu and good value for the money with a smile.

Eat here a few mornings with my wife when we were staying in New York last December. at the Yotel which is under 10mins away. The place is nothing fancy but the food is good and gave us that New York experience

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.
