I found this place to get out of the cold snow.. But what a great experience! The staff were great and efficient, with a quick turn around. The meal I ordered didn't take long, and they were very busy at the time. I had a Cesar Salad which was delish! Highly recommend

Came here on my Birthday for breakfast. I loved the decor, and it had a lovely vibe to the whole place. Food was fantastic - I had eggs florentine which was delicious. Bottomless coffee too! Definitely a great place for a treat! I'd love to see what's on the lunch and dinner menus too!

Fresh orange juice, eggs with bacon, fried potatoes, toast and an endless supply of American coffee . . . and all for $20! The restaurant was bustling and busy, but the speed and responsiveness of service was commendable. The "New Yorker" breakfast . . . worth every cent!

This restaurant was recommended to us before we travelled to New York and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is much bigger than it looks from the outside so even if it looks busy it's worth trying to get in. Ate here for both dinner and one morning for breakfast (but had quite a wait to be seated for that... More

Classy diner, classic location. Food & service good. Pricing above average. That's all I've got to say about that.

Went here for pancakes after a recommendation from friends and really enjoyed our breakfast. Then went back a few days later for lunch as it was convenient before heading home without being too busy. It also helped that it is in an iconic location and handy to make a visit to central station while we were there. Atmosphere was good... More

Like most restaurants in the city, this one has their menu on display in the front window. I saw "organic whole wheat waffles" and that's all it took! We went there on a Monday morning around 9:30am and there was no wait. We were seated at a booth against the window, which was great for people watching as we drank... More

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.
