Consistently Great Food & Service

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... read 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!

We ate here for berakfast all 5 days of our stay on recommendation of my cousin & she wasn't wrong about the place. Short walk away from our hotel & open 24hrs, so breakfast all day if you choose. 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.

Fast efficient but not true Italian food. Servers were helpful and friendly. Food was basic and OK. Just down from where we are staying.

Came here for breakfast. Restaurant is in a great location with a good breakfast menu variety. Food was very good and a good value. Not too expensive considering the area it was in.

I had a late dinner at the Galaxy with my husband and cousin when visiting NYC in September. Although there were other dining options on 9th Ave we choose the Galaxy because we all wanted to have different options which we knew a diner would offer. It's looking a little tired inside and the food is average but the service... More

Very reasonable place to visit for breakfast. We had just finished a boat trip and wanted to find a place that did all day breakfasts as we really fancied trying pancakes! We came across Galaxy diner and it did not disappoint!

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.
