My wife and I went here twice during our 3 night stay in Manhattan. Read about it on Yelp and decided to give it a shot. Very small diner style place that is very busy. Pancakes were very good, light and fluffy instead of thick and doughy. Turkey bacon was another standout menu item, easily the best I have ever... More

Were it not for TripAdvisor, we would not have visited Johny's, and we would have missed out. It's a tiny place, with perhaps seven seats and, frankly, had it been somewhere at home, we would have walked passed and not given it a second thought. However, the reviews on here were so good that we had to give it a... More

From the outside, Johny's may not seem tempting... a really small place, looking rather old, but when you see so many people queuing to eat there, you may want to change your mind, which is the wise decision to take. It's worth it! My friend and I wanted to have a real American breakfast, that is to say, PANCAKES (okay,... More

Loved this place! If you want reasonably priced diner type breakfast then look no further! Johnny's is a stall at the counter type establishment that does out of this world pancakes etc. It does healthy options too but... let's face it... don't bother on your holidays!! Great service, authentic, happy days.

Visited in July, after looking for a typical diner. This place hit the spot, small restaurant, but excellent and cheap. Friendly staff. Had the Curious George, eggs, ham, bacon, cheese and fries on a roll. It was excellent, cheap and filling. Definitely recommend if you are in this part of Manhattan.

I got there about 8:00 on a Tuesday , and half the seats were available. Had a great bacon and eggs with potatoes, toast and coffee for $7.50 with tax and tip. Prepared right in front of me and served up hot - no heat lamp here! An extensive menu, unbelievable food and prices. I loved it!

We were keen to experience a real,NYC breakfast and surprise , we found it 150 meters from our hotel on W25th street in Chelsea . Thus is real mom and pop operation with some of the slickest yet meticulous food prep happening right before your eyes whilst you sit up in this small twelve seater traditional bar diner. The staff... More

The menu here is big, but the food is conventional and vey good. Quarters are TIGHT! We probably sat 10 feet from the grille, but the AC unit is also closest to those seats. The two guys in there worked their butts off in that place! Kudos to them for their hard work. We enjoyed our visit. We'd probably order... More

As a couple from London, we simply Googled 'breakfast' and went to the nearest place. It was great! Small cafe, does take away. The guy cooking could only have been described as superman as he cooked faster than the speed of sound to keep up with the orders. Was full the whole time we were there, with a take away... More
