Pleasantly surprised and great time

I met my friend for a quick bite before an event at the Players Club off of Gramercy Park and couldn't have been more pleased. The intimate and private bar was perfect for happy hour-where they have half- off beer and wine, and we had 1 large bottle of water, one diet coke, and two glasses of wine... read more

From a recent trip to NYC, after trying several highly-rated brunch spots, I can honestly say that this is one of my utmost-favorite brunch spots. For brunch, it's first come, first served, so show up early as the restaurant is relatively small and fills up quickly. Food is fresh, local, and cooked to order. Service is timely and attentive yet... More

On a sunny day in NYC this is a nice spot for brunch. This is a restaurant that proves that as long as you have a decent location people will queue to get in regardless of the quality of the experience. The waiters got every single element of our order wrong. Green tea instead of black, fries instead of salad.... More

Read about this place online and so glad we did. A tiny little place decked out like an old farmhouse complete with old wallpaper, farm tools & piles of fresh produce - but very subtle, not too 'themed'. The music was also fantastic, you can't beat Neil Young and it suited chilled out the atmosphere perfectly. Eggs Benedict was superb... More

Delicious food all around in a wonderfully looking place - warm and cosy. Food is outstanding and clearly best pancakes i ever had - soft and crispy - to die for. Juices are made to order and are fresh and deliciously too. Highly recommend the place for on eof the best breakfast in town

We really liked the location. It has a nice, cosy interior, which we really enjoyed. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had the burger and a salad with avocado. Both was nice, however, we expected the food to be a little bit more special for this price.

We ate here most days on our recent trip. There was a great choice of food, which was all fresh and tasty. The layout is cosy and refreshing from the rest of NY. The staff were great and extremely friendly.

I see, in a number of other reviews of this restaurant, repeated use of the words "cozy,"tight" and "homey." Like a crowded subway train is cozy. The walk upstairs to one of the dining rooms had me thinking "fire hazard," as my wife and I had to walk sideways through narrow hallways and prep areas, forcing us to sidle up... More

Our table for 8 was prebooked but when we arrived we were told our table was still in use but would not be long. I asked where we could go to get a drink whilst waiting and was told they didn't have anywhere. We were directed to a canopy on the front of the building which had an overhead heater... More
