We ate here after a recommendation from the Affinia Dumont hotel. Breakfast was great for all 4 of us, including our youngest son who has numerous allergies. This was no problem, we provided our own milk for him and the waitress made sure there was no x-contamination. The rest of us had excellent food, fast and hot - our eldest... More

American diner, clean, friendly and good value for money. Boss seems a bit like Basil Fawlty prowling round ,moving menus and keeping staff on their toes. However must work because place functions either because of or in spite of. Good place to sit, eat and drink and enjoy New Yorkers in their natural habitat.

Went here a couple weeks ago on a Saturday morning, as we were staying at a Hilton Hotel around the corner. Typical diner breakfast food which was served fast, hot and well prepared. Prices not bad for NYC. Will come again if we are in the area.

We were staying just down the road and ended up having breakfast here a couple of times. It was the first time that our children had eaten in a NYC diner and they loved it. Pancakes are lovely and lots of coffee if you need it. Staff very attentive.

A classic, neighborhood diner with plenty of scrumptious selections, ample portions and very friendly service. My wife and I ate there twice during our Nov 2014 visit to New York. Good value and very popular.

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.
