You've gotta know that if you have to make reservations for breakfast, it's going to be good…This is a great place to start your day, right across from Grand Central Terminal (read Linda Fairstein's new novel…Terminal City…for an inside look at GCT) The breakfast food and choices are all good and the ambience across from the Terminal under the viaduct...

Another place recommended to me by the travel agent, not disappointed with the food, atmosphere & staff. I had the New Yorker and my partner had the Eggs Benedict. Very attentive waiter who ensured the coffee was topped up frequently. Only down side was that we were sat by the front door which would be a little draughty in Winter!... More

Conveniently located opposite grand central station, this place is a great place for breakfast. It's deceptively spacious and so you can always get straight in. Thejr eggs Benedict are delicious and the service is good. Well worth a visit.

Across the road from Grand Central, this is a 'straight from central casting' NY diner. Quick, brusque service. Pancakes, waffles, oatmeal and of course eggs. Busy - with a mixture of locals on their way to work after travelling into the city (the majority on the days I went) and tourists. Great location to plan your day because it has... More

Great place to meet and greet. The service is good. The food is good. It just seemed right for being situated across from Grand Central Station.

This restaurant is right across the street from Grand Central Station. We had breakfast and it was great. The portions are generous and the food very tasty. The omelet was huge and came with potatoes or fruit, the eggs bendict looked delicious and my brioche French toast was great. The service was attentive and nice. We did have breakfast early... More

Went here for breakfast with friends whilst on holiday in NYC, first time we tried we couldn't get a table in time before breakfast was finished so we went back another morning. Lots of choice for breakfast on the menu - pancakes, eggs, waffles etc. We all had different things, all of which looked great and high quality! The service... More

I had a couple if very good breakfasts here. Great selection of typical American breakfast dishes and some more modern interpretations such as Eggs Benedict with quinoa. A big and busy place with efficient though not not the friendliest service - but I did return - so don't misunderstand this as people being rude. Well worth a visit.
