Had dinner here again tonight. We go as a couple or with the kids. Both experiences excellent. The food is very good, service great, location convenient. Makes this a great NYC staple in my book. Would also recommend breakfast and lunch for business.

It is definitely a hot spot. The lines move quickly. We have eaten here before, but I did not remember pancakes being $14. They were very good, but $14??? I know it is NY.

My family and I have passed this place many times while traversing to and from grand central station on our trips to NY. We were there for Macys day parade on thanksgiving. After the parade we were starving and needed a place for breakfast. The place was packed. We thought it would be an hour wait. We're seated within 15... More

Opposite Grand Central Station this place boasts the best breakfast in the city. Don't know about that but it is very good. Long line but after a couple of minutes caught the eye of a waitress. Seated quickly and served hot strong coffee straight away, and refills whenever needed. Eggs sunny side up and corned beef hash with rye toast... More

Go with the corned beef hash!! Homemade and some of the best I have ever had. When visiting NYC last weekend with my girlfriend, we went to this place on Saturday morning. They do a brisk weekend business and there was a line out the door, which we waited in and which moved relatively fast. They are busy and service... More

We ate here for breakfast whilst visiting NY, we tried in on a couple of different days and whilst the food is good (the pancakes are apparently superb according to my wife) the service is very hit and miss, it can take quite a while to grab your waiters attention especially when they disappear into the kitchen constantly as they...

I am so glad I listened to all the recommendations on blogs and TripAdvisor to go here for breakfast. It started off our first full day in the city, and it couldn't have been better! When we went in the door, we were concerned about the queue, but then realised that this was for the restaurant area and we were... More

Great food & excellent service. Ask for a booth! Can get very busy during lunch, you may need to wait for a table.

We went here for breakfast on the morning of the parade whilst we waited for it to arrive at this area of town. I had visited once before but this was the first time for my Mam. We had a delicious breakfast which the parade was shown on the TV screens. Amazing food and the portions were a sensible size... More
