When I was there in July, 2014, it was closed. A sign said the certification was pending. When I was there in 2008, the food was ordinary, and the service was poor. If you read your sloppily written bill carefully, you noticed that they added in a huge tip. Don't add more.

People were friendly. Food was average. The pancakes was great In the morning. Didn't like that the cafe was a bit dark. But other than that it was fine.

Food was good but most servers are stone faced. The hostess is the scariest! There are a few spanish waiters that are awesome!

We had breakfast here while staying and Hotel Edison. The food was average and fairly quick. We were surprised when we went to the cashier to see a sign stating "Cash only". Luckily we had enough but I felt we should have been informed sooner in this electronic era.

Tried breakfast at the cafe. Convenient, diner-type vibe. Started out with getting the order incorrect and moved down from there. Eggs were rubbery, potatoes barely warm, bacon greasy and soggy. Coffee and toast the best parts. Prices OK....pancakes looked good. Too bad I never got mine!

Service was mediocre, given that a lot of restaurants in NYC hire latin/spanish immigrants. The food itself was very good, came in a timely manner and affordable.
