We had breakfast one morning as it was across the street from our hotel. Very good service, food, and prices. Nice retro environment and it was obvious that regulars frequent the restaurant.

This american diner really is typical american and great. Service, Food, Atmosphere, Prices are all 100% great. The menu choice is outstanding and this will always be on our list of going back to in NYC. If you want a typical first class american style diner, THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO.

Got here about 8 am on a Friday morning and it wasn't very crowded at all. Seems like a total locals place, as they seemed to know a good number of people coming in and ordering.

My extended family group of 5, including 2 teenage granddaughters thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast here. It was a recommendation from the Bell Staff at the Marriott East property - we were looking for a place to walk to and this was his first reference - great choice - very busy and popular - GO!

Try the lemon ricotta pancakes with blueberry, or the smoked salmon scrambled eggs with cream cheese... Or lots other great choices. Excellent food, efficient and warm service. Highly recommended - We will surely come back!
