Extremely disappointed after being away for a couple of years. This was my first thought after landing in NYC. After taking a bus and walking several blocks I was there! Staff the same and good to see them. I ordered an egg and bacon sandwich, easy, right? Chewy roll, the bacon was so thin and small it would have disappeared... More

Had a great meal on Friday, went back Sunday but closed early. (could not see opening times in window) Did not bother again, went to Luckys on 1st Ave, open 24hrs and just as good.

Was convenient to our hotel and very reasonably priced. Basic diner fare. Did not have any gluten free options, made due with eggs over potatoes but would have liked gluten free toast. Kept the coffee coming and was a fun people watch place.

I had breakfast here one morning whilst staying nearby. It feels like a place for locals and the staff know the names of all the regulars. However, I was made very welcome. It serves all the usual diner breakfast items. Quality is excellent and the pancakes were some of the best I've eaten.

One lesson I have learned. When you want to eat a steak you do not go to a diner. You look for a steak house! Well while the service was good and they threw in a complimentary glass of wine which was also fine the entrée itself disappointed. It was tough and not very tasty. Even the mashed potatoes and...
