Maybe it was because we were tourists but my california omelet was just average, not very flavorful and overcooked. Potatoes that came with it were greasy and not cooked well.

This is our go to diner when we come to NYC, and are never disappointed by the food. We never leave hungry! I always have the pancakes, and it makes such a difference to have actual maple syrup in a jug rather then the awful, tasteless pancake syrups in little plastic tubs! The service has always been excellent, however there... More

We went here for breakfast twice in 6 days. Loved it. Friendly, good food and good service. Also value for money. Really, what more could you want?

Had breakfast here with the family....food was delivered so quick I felt like we had our own personal chef. All 4 of us thought it was delicious. Coffee was never refilled so service could've been a bit better but overall no complaints for a diner.

Don't bother going anywhere else in the neighborhood for breakfast. Great food. Great service. They even gave us a complimentary 2015 calendar, which hangs proudly on our wall at home.

Went for breakfast. Place was very full, which tells you it's good, because it is not located in a touristy area. Received a friendly and warm greeting at the door, like we were family, though this was our first time there. French toast (challah bread) was fantastic. So was the Murray Hill omelet. Service was decent, but not great. Food... More

Great breakfast spot, and kid friendly. Speedy service, and extremely friendly staff. Only ate breakfast each time, so not so sure about the lunch or dinner items.

We had the privilege of staying around the corner from this diner. The waiter can remember your preference of beverage so upon walking in each morning my tea and my husband's coffee would be on our table within seconds. My husband become known as the "egg on a plate man" after being asked on Day 1 how he would like... More
