Just what was needed

After a long walk on our last day in NYC this was a lively place to stop. Feeling cold and a bit sniffly so I ordered the special - hot lemon honey and ginger - wow! We shared a lovely NY cheesecake as well With the walk from central midtown

Nice spot for coffee and croissant in the early morning. Just down the street from MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) on 53rd. Pleasant design and environment -- self service.

We visited this restaurant frequently for lunches and dinners. There were many delicious choices for both breakfasts and lunches that was easy on the wallet. The foods are known for being organic and fresh. The portion sizes were perfect and the service was great!

All around the world, this is my go to spot for organic, healthy and delicious breakfasts. I prefer to go to independently owned establishments but...sometimes you just need to start a travelling day off with something that you know...something that you can rely on. This location did not disappoint! On this occasion, I had the smoked salmon plate and boyfriend... More

We have choose not this place to have a different breakfast. Well, it's not such a big deal, and the price paid for 4 people, 1 coffee, 1 orange juice, 3 croissant and 1 waffle to me was far too much. 50 dollars incl the 18% additional for the service. If you stop to Sturbucks you get more or less... More

The very uncomfortable wooden seats or benches, the very slow service, and the constant noise (and long lines) make this chain a choice only when you have no other choice. But then you are rewarded with reasonably good food.

This was our first visit to this location. We have been to their other location twice. Good fresh healthy food and reasonably priced. WE enjoy the open seating. It is so energetic especially at lunch time.

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.
