We ate here on our first day in town, looking for a good example of a NYC basic eatery. Found it! I had a bagel with lox- absolutely perfect for a quick well rounded meal. Ample portion size too for walking around and burning off the calories! The salmon was perfectly portioned with the bagel and cream cheese, and the... More

We had breakfast here each morning. We usually had fresh fruit salad each and shared 'silver pancakes' - a dozen light pancakes with syrup. All for the total price on $17.20 inc tip. Our last day we had french toast and bacon which was very tasty. One particular waiter was very friendly and welcoming - an 'older' guy with grey... More

We stayed at The W a few doors down and went to Café Edison for breakfast on numerous mornings. Fast and accurate service, good food prepared the way you asked for it. The price was very reasonable. Our servers were very efficient and friendly. Great food at a great price.

Breakfast was served within a few minutes of ordering. The service was speedy and the eggs were delicious and reasonably priced. Someone in our party ordered the chocolate waffle. It was huge - a little pricier than the eggs, but huge. Two quick things to remember: they don't take credit cards so bring cash, and they charge a dollar extra... More

Food was okay, nothing special. The service wasn't that great. It felt like they were understaffed. Staff was nice but seemed to be in a huge hurry to get our order and get us out of there.
