Great breakfast!

The omelets were so delicious, we ate there twice! The desserts looked amazing, though we didn't indulge in them.

Great place if you're looking for a little more from your dining experience! The staff are brilliant and the pink lemonade is really lovely. It may be because I'm British but I felt the mac and cheese was a little too stodgy.

While trying to satisfy my New York deli desires after discovering my favorite deli was closed, the Starlight Deli popped up as a place to go. With corned beef sandwich in neon on the window my interest was piqued. I found the menu went well beyond the deli world and more into the diner world, but my disappointment quickly turn... More

This is one of my favourite spots for breakfast in New York. Just around the corner from Time Square. Its an authentic American diner. Large portions, good quality food and low prices. French Toast is superb!

Desperately seeking a quick bite next to the St. James 20 minutes before a show and SO glad it was next door. Clearly everyone else had the same idea and it's no wonder. The veggie wrap with eggplant and mozzarella was unimaginably delicious. They had dinners and sandwiches quickly prepared. No long wait but no tables. There's a ledge by... More

We stay at the Marriott and come here everyday for lunch to bring back to our tradeshow. Fresh deli samdwiches are only $6.50 with lettuce and tomato and a pickle. They have hot food and soups as well. Service fast. Been here over 20 times and always satisfied with great prices.

The singing waiters are a wonderfu experience, and some of the Broadway wannabees are even talented. The food is less slo, not up to nyc standards

Were staying in Times Square. Kids wanted donuts, we wanted bagels. Delivered good quality on both. Service was friendly even though they were busy.

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.
