This was our second trip to the establishment. First time was OK which made us want to try it again. We made reservations at 5:30 thru open table. We were the first and only people in the restaurant. My wife and I with a sleeping baby in a stroller. The host set us right away since the place was completely... More

We had breakfast here whilst on holiday in New York on recommendation from our guide book for the cinnamon french toast. Although the service was slow, (which was frustrating as we had our day planned and wanted to get started!) when the food arrived it was worth waiting for! I had the cinnamon french toast (delicious!) and my husband had... More

My family and I stopped here for brunch to start out our vacation get a way in NYC. We ordered pancakes, waffles, omelettes, home fries, and bacon. It was all seriously delicious. Not sure where they get that bacon but it was the best bacon I ever had in my life! Service was great. We will be back.

Always outstanding - love their food!!! Weekends are a bit frantic so try week day mornings. Order anything on the menu - you won't be disappointed.

After we were seated in a side table, it took the team 20 min to address us. The food took 45 minutes to arrive with multiple reminders from 'hungry us'. The food finally arrived with no apologies or addressing the ridiculous delay. I used to be a regular with the restaurant for several years. The portion was much smaller than... More

I live right around the corner from this place, and have been for both brunch and dinner a number of times. The place is very consistent: 1) The food is very good, especially the brunch (go for the bacon waffles... do it). 2) The service is below average. I've actually noticed that the wait staff turns over quite a bit,... More

My son and I ate breakfast on a weekday at 10 am. No line and seated immediately. The Apple Pancake was delicious as was the cinnamon french toast. Portions very generous. The coffee wasn't very good but tasted like typical diner coffee. I should've bought a cup at Joe's (couple doors down) to drink with the meal. Will go here... More

Great breakfast place! The menu looked great. My husband ordered the French toast and I ordered the apple pancake. Both were tasty. Service was friendly. Cute neighborhood.
