Quaint neighborhood breakfast place

We decided to try a few local places around Times Square and decided to have breakfast at the Galaxy Diner after receiving a few recommendations. The food was good, but not exceptional. The service was slightly above average. All in all, it is a nice place to go in the area that is a little off... read more

We ate here on our first night in NYC. Everywhere we tried to get in to was full and we went in to this place and it as empty! At first we thought oh no this is a bad sign. The food was excellent, plenty of it, great beer and good service.Highly recommended.

A few blocks from the theatre district but still a wonderful place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Their brunch specials which includes a mimosa are unbeatable. Food is always good (delicious salads in particular) -- waitstaff is very attentive -- prices are extremely reasonable. Check it out! And don't let the "diner" title fool you, it's a cozy little restaurant... More

We went to Galaxy Diner, not knowing if it was any good. A friendly man came to help us and took our orders. We ate breakfast including pancakes, eggs, bacon,... Everthing was well cooked/baked and the flavours were excellent. Nothing to complain about!

Great choice on the menu, great coffee, great fresh orange juice, great value & service from great staff. Give it a... More

We loved this diner in Hells Kitchen - a fun atmosphere, great food and great service. Great spot if you're planning on walking down to the Highline or the flea market.

We have been in this diner for breakfast 3 times during our last visit of Manhattan. It offers good food at reasonable prices, friendly staff & good service. It is not something really special or spectacular but a good choice for basic food in a nice (though not fancy) environment.

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.
