Got the chicken sandwich and that was good. I came with friends and wasn't expecting the food to be good and have a variety. I liked it!

It was pretty cold that day so when I sat down I asked for coffee. The pot behine the bar was almost empty so I ask for some fresh... More

I had a terrific omelet for lunch - hey it's a coffee shop and like a diner there's breakfast all day. The ingrediants were all fresh with real meat (no processed stuff). The service was excellent. No matter what you order, I'm sure it will be wonderful.

Bustling New York Diner – my Eggs Florentine with side of bacon were to die for (I’d had no dinner the night before). The Ice Tea was nice and not too sweet, which again made it perfect. It also came with a side of fried potato, which I tried not to eat just because I was so full. It was... More

Sunshine in October, perfect place to get a juice and hang out with good food facing the square. Largely student clientele, but friendly service, great salads. Inside there was a cool jazzy brazilian band. Good for Sunday brunch.

Below average service, average food and avoid any other beverages. A place to avoid. A great location that is spoilt and could be so much better. There are a lot better choices in the area

If you want to be served by a pretty girl who is rude and doesn't understand customer service, go here. Go here if you want to wait 45 minutes for the wrong food and wait longer for a simple milkshake. Staff are completely unable to provide basic customer service. I couldn't have the avocado on a separate plate (I'm allergic... More

A very slight attitude from the host when we approached them and asked for a table. They were busy but the wait was 10-15 minutes we were told. It was after the lunch crush, so our wait was short. The value, and food quality was good, but for some reason it took a very long time to come out with... More

This has been a Union Square staple for 20+'years. Excellent modern interpretations of Diner Food...but with a Twist and some Latin American flair as well. Seems like every waitress is a part-time model...no joke! In the fall, spring and summer, you can sit outside and look at the Park in Union Square. Great Date spot for breakfast or Lunch. Full...
