Great brunch

We were looking for somewhere to eat and found this place where we were found a table quickly and efficiently. The food was very tasty and whilst not the cheapest it was real quality and worth the money. Very central location.

I saw this place and wanted to go in. We went in for breakfast and had pancakes. It is a bit pricey but for a one off treat it is well worth it to soak up the atmosphere and taste the delicious pancakes...the restaurant is very clean and tidy, the waiting staff are very attentive and the food is excellent....

A convenient restaurant near Grand Central station. After a day of sightseeing we just wanted a quick meal. It was reasonably quick and the food was enjoyable. Excellent service.

I like their business model. Old style diner where they have a well oiled conveyor belt designed to get you in, served and out for the next customer. Service was very fast but if you arrive after 8am expect a long line. I walked in at 0730 and had my choice of tables. The food was reasonably good and the... More

We enjoyed a very nice breakfast here. The quality of the food was very good and the portions were just right. Best cup of tea I had in NYC too! Quite pricey though.

I and my two kids ate here for breakfast. It's a lot bigger than you understand from the outside so don't worry about getting in. We had a great breakfast from the fresh squeezed orange juice to omelettes, eggs benedict, and french toast. All were really tasty and fairly filling. We didn't feel underserved. Staff was fast in getting us... 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.
