Excellent food, quality service and reasonable prices!

Ate here every morning during our 4 day visit to New York. We were very impressed by the menu, the quality of the food and the reasonable prices. We had three breakfasts here, and one was actually brunch which started at 10am. We had ordered bagles the first day - I ordered lox and my husband... read more

After a bad experience at Tic Toc Diner the day before, this place was perfection. Excellent service. Excellent food. We had a window seat. It seemed to be filled with New Yorkers rather than tourists. I will definitely go back.

We had tried three diners in NY around Lexington and 39th, but by far the best was the Murray Hill Diner. It has a light, bight atmosphere. The food was excellent, the service excellent and above all it is so very reasonably priced. It was good to see nice crockery too!

great for families. My kids loved the jumbo bagels and croissants. I loved the full breakfast and my husband loved the pancakes with strawberries. Endless coffee which I loved. Don't leave it too late or it gets very busy and you may not get a table. We always got in but we saw some turned away. My husband would have... More

Family breakfast was excellent. Kids raved about it and want to come back for lunch and dinner too. Friendly, fast service at recent prices.

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.
