Loved this place for breakfast. Calorie counts are listed on the menu. Fresh grapefruit juice, fresh berry bowl, a yummy rice pudding mix with pistachios and other nuts.....huge slices of walnut bread. 4 different types of spreads on the table....hazelnut, biscotti, triple berry jam, and white chocolate....all good! My friend got the hot chocolate...a steaming cup of milk...she added the... More

We went to have breakfast couple of days ago following a recommendation but it was not as good as we were told. The menu is not 'users friendly' and its not the place to go if you like to eat eggs unlessyou like soft boiled eggs or Quiche. Service was kind of slow and sloopy but not the price...65 usd...

This a a Belgian chain that knows how to keep its quality. I love their soup for lunch. At breakfast, the granola is superb. In fact I buy huge quantities to take home. It is the finest granola in the world.

We spent the weekend of the 24th in New York City, and we were looking for a nice place for a breakfast. My sister recommended this place, and said it was a chain. I was a little wary at first, because I was really looking forward to a nice restaurant. What a surprise I had! We got there and it... More

We met a new friend here for Sunday brunch. It readily satisfied the cravings of vegetarians and carnivores alike. I loved my quinoa salad, though I wouldn't mind the beets being in bigger chunks. The avocado slices were perfect. Eggs and quiche were well cooked and well received. Coffee was hot and strong. Service was unobtrusive, yet patient. One disappointment... More

This is a warm and welcoming venue off the cold wet streets of New York! Serves the best organic food and coffee :) I loved the communal table in the middle of the restaurant but did not get a chance to try it. Place was busy and since we were in no hurry, I thought the service was well timed.... More

I can recommend this place for a healthy breakfast if you've being overdoing it on the fried/greasy stuff at other times. We loved the breakfast basket with boiled eggs - my neice loved the orange juice and me the apple juice. Hot chocolate is a bit weird where you add the melted chocolate to the milk. Went back a second... More

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.
