Not really European!

Great make them while you watch salads with a lot of choices for add-ins. I've never stayed there to eat - seems a little crowded for that. But take out is fine.

The shop called wants a potential was good ingredients and a fresh menu. But the quality of the service is so poor and the method of preparing the food is so spotty but it's hard to guarantee that you'll get a good meal. My turkey and brie sandwich for instance had a frozen center. With just a little more Karen... More

I have to imagine since this place is located in the heart of Times Square the employees are endlessly dealing with people who don't speak English or well or don't know how to order. The staff here was exceptionally rude. They were fast and efficient but the salad guy was slamming bowls as hard as possible constantly. Be happy to... More

I didn't ordred some food there but my dad did and he'd said it was good. Only the washrooms were occupied the whole time and the wifi was bad.

We stayed in New York room only so needed somewhere for breakfast that didn't cost a fortune. This ticked all the boxes. I wanted a healthy option, the kids wanted pancakes and my husband wanted more of a traditional breakfast and we found it all under one roof. The food was good, it was counter service but we were served... More

The salad are good, the pasta are basic but alright. The desserts we had were not good (industrial taste, dry, apparently not fresh). The staff was not so nice the day we came. Still this is a fair and affordable option for a quick lunch on Time Square.

Horrid food, just terrible. Pasta is incredibly sad. I could've made a better dish blind folded and with only using a microwave. Great location though, I think this is the ONLY reason they're always busy.

Really loved this place. Food is fresh, salads are great, cakes very tasty, service is very efficient and best of all, no queues. Prices may be a little steep, but I don't mind paying that little bit extra for quality food.

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.
