Great New York Local Diner

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

This is a small diner tucked away between 9th and 10th Avenues on 42nd Street in NYC. It is right near a theater [Stage 42] The space is of a substantial size and the staff is very accommodating. They serve diner food-breakfast, lunch, brunch [weekends] and dinner and are most likely opened late. There is a full menu, a TV... More

I would recommend this to anyone. The food and service is excellent. Both my husband and I enjoyed the breakfast. I had pancakes with bacon and syrup. He had waffles with poached egg.

We had a brunch style meal at this restaurant. It was delicious. Service was very efficient and speedy, portion sizes were good. It was just what we needed during a busy day seeing the sights.

Stopped in for breakfast before exploring NYC. Food was good but the service was horribly slow. Had to ask three times for the check. All we wanted to do was get on to our day.

Since we were seeing a show on theater row we decided to eat at the diner which is right there. Food is good and reasonably priced. Staff is friendly and helpful. They let my friend wait for us at a table for over a half hour (with a cup of coffee) even though they were getting busy. They are good... More

I didn't want anything terribly fancy or pricey. This place was perfect. All 4 of us had good meals. Would come back.

This was right round the corner from our hotel, and on the way into town towards Times Square. We had breakfast here twice during our trip, the food was quick and tasty with generous portions. The waiting staff were friendly and helpful and they had a some great breakfast deals asking it very reasonably priced. My only criticism is the... More

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

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
