Great menu, had superb service and good food! Loved sitting outside in Union Square! and after you eat your avocado egg, bacon wrap, you can wash it down with a cold one! How fun to have a bar inside a breakfast place! Only in NYC! I would definitely visit this establishment, when in the area. Reasonable prices for the NYC... More

Been coming here since I moved to NYC in 1990. And it looks like they haven't updated or renovated a thing ever since. Good for a bite. Good prices. Good food. Good drink & wine selection. BUT-The women's bathroom was so nasty, had I never been before and went to the bathroom before ordering, I would have WALKED OUT! FILTHY!!!!!!!!... More

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...

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
