I had a steak, ham and egg sandwich that was terrific and a very good milkshake. The wait wasn't only 5 mins even though it was noon. The waitstaff was attentive but not hovering. Other food eaten by our party included a tuna steak sandwich and a grilled shrimp salad, and good reviews all around! The prices are what you... More

Met our daughter there for breakfast on a Saturday Morning. This restaurant is unpretentious, yet the food far exceeds what one might expect from a diner type venue. The food is very creative and varied, offering selections that are typically found in more upscale places. Excellent, friendly service. We sat in our booth and talked for a while after finishing...

The first time I came here about a year ago the food was decent. However, ever since, it has been a down hill experience since. Each time since (total of 3) my husband and I have both gotten sick immediately after eating food. If you are daring enough to eat here for over priced food, stick to breakfast. Their lunch... More

Right in Union Square, this is wonder spot for breakfast/brunch, especially on a Saturday morning, when you can watch the hustle and bustle of the farmer's market from the sidewalk tables. Hmmm, on second thought, Sunday may be better so you can use Saturday to sample all the fresh goodness of the Union Square Farmer's Market. Eat and people watch... More

We got to eat breakfast on a beautiful sunny morning in Union Square at The Coffee Shop. The coffee was hot and good. The service was great. We sat outside and had two wait staff just for the outside tables. They were friendly and good servers. The food was excellent. I had french toast and it was very good. My... More

This place was not what I was expecting. A friend took me here and said "you have to go to the coffee shop". I'm a coffee addict, so I agreed... This is not a coffee shop - its a killer restaurant with the most efficient bar design for serving customers I've ever seen. The staff was on top of everything.... More
