Friendly Staff good diner food

This was a random stop because we were tired of walking. Glad we stopped food was surprisingly good. Price was a little high for diner food but not too bad considering we are talking New York

This place is conveniently located on Broadway halfway between Times Square and Central Park. It is a glorified Denny's with substandard service. We had dinner here simply because it was there and we were hungry, and we were too tired/lazy to find some place else. Learn from our mistake and eat elsewhere! On the next block (8 Ave) there are...

Possibly the best waitress of any places we stopped at in NYC. Burgers great. Sweet potato fries were great. Quaint but clean old fashioned restrooms. We can highly recommend the Milkshakes and thick shakes.

Another great NYC diner. Open 24 hours. Had breakfast there. Really enjoyed the yogurt. Many of the NYC diners seem to have added Greek Yogurt Menus. Yummy!

One thing I learnt in the US is that they can't cook eggs, unless they cook them to death. This establishment was no better, tasteless cold rubbery eggs, with sausages that had been cut into pieces (like feeding a child) and it wasn't cheap either.

I had drinks and a plate of fried meals, which was recommended by server, after the dinner with my friend. We had some cocktails like Martini and Mojito and they were tasty, although the fried meals were heavy for us, who had finished dinner in other restaurant 30 minutes ago. Here is good for having some drinks.

Wife and I ate here this morning. Basic omelettes. Waiter brought pineapple juice instead of apple, came by once and still added a $6 tip for service. I've never had a tip added unless we had a group of at least 6! Not eating here again!

Good breakfast sandwiches, packed with sausage and eggs. Good staff. Good prices too, considering the location. Will return for Mexican coffee and maybe a dinner before going back to London

BEST. YOGURT. PARFAIT. EVER. Large menu, many choices - indistinguishable from 1000 others. But: if you are in between meals and in the area - do try the parfait. Sweetest strawberries!

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.
