Quick but delicious breakfast

This place was right next to our hotel, so it was very convenient. It was also very clean! The service is fast, but the food is delicious. My sister got the waffle with ice cream and whipped cream; very indulgent and very delicious. My mom and I both got eggs and sausage. We were very satisfied... read more

I have eaten here many times. I go back because it is convenient to many hotels where I stay while in NYC. the menu is typical for a diner. I have had breakfast and lunch here. the tuna salad sandwich I had yesterday was very generous and fresh made with all white tuna. Everything I have ever eaten is fresh... More

What a great, welcoming, friendly place. Just off Lexington, it was around the corner from out hotel. Murals on the walls, friendly staff, good food. Had a great time.

Just had breakfast at this midtown dinner, and it was exactly what is expected of a dinner--comfort food at a great price. Service was fast and friendly. We had an omelette and coffee.

We had a breakfast for three here during our stay in the city, and as we were expecting diner prices we immediately sat down and ordered tea and coffee so it was "too late" to leave after taking a look at the menu. Food was good but most of it seemed over-priced. I guess it depends what you order but... More

First family breakfast in New York. Excellent pancakes and Bacon for me, and mug of tea. Rest of family happy also, and all at a reasonable price

This is a good place for a 'real' American breakfast at an affordable price near the large and expensive midtown hotels. It's not a culinary experience but great service, good fun and okay food for both children and adults.

Went on the recommendation of my hotel. While edible it wasn't delicious or enjoyable. I have had a lot better omelettes elsewhere. With such great reviews not sure if it was purely my meal selection. Either way I wont be returning.

Had breakfast here one morning rather than at our hotel next door. Great range of options and filled us up for a day of sightseeing. Doorman at our hotel recommend - good call. Friendly staff and speedy service. Recommended.

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.
