I think this place is overrated, you'll have to wait in a big line to have some breakfast. The breakfast itself is okay, but not amazing. Ambiance is okay.

We got there on the early side on a beautiful Sunday morning, so we got a table outside. Decent service, good food, nice way to start our NYC vacation! By the time we left, there was a long line, so it is clearly a popular place.

Small little place with a rustic country look. Nothing fancy, simply,but good. We sat outside. Started with a good house martini cocktail,$9,yum.. Had the beer batter chicken fingers with home made french fries, $14. Dessert tasted homemade, coconut cake, also good. All was good. We have had take out here before,but never physically went there to eat. I would return.

The food is delicious. But it's pricey. 11$ for a waffle! Taste like heaven though and it had bacon in it (nuff said). Expect to wait to be seated on weekends. It can be a bit noisy in this small space but it's easy to forget that once you start eating. And if you ask Marcus the bartender to make... More

Looked for an outdoor cafe to have a light lunch in, to take in one of the last of the beautiful Fall days where one can sit outside and enjoy the sun. Usually, Good Enough to Eat is impossible to get into ... in the weekend ... but this being a weekday, it was a breeze. Ordered the banana pancakes,... More

We paid a visit to good enough to eat a few times during our stay. The breakfasts were lovely and good value for the price. We decided to try it for an evening meal and I would say it was pretty basic- which was a huge disappointment. Apart from that, the staff are very friendly, the decor is nice and... More

I visited this place this past Sunday. The food was decent, far from the best that I have ever had. The wait for brunch was not very long which was a positive however once we were seated, it took about 20 minutes for someone to take our order. We didn't get our food for almost 45 minutes after that. A... More

Went for breakfast alone on a Sunday, recommended by the hotel staff. Line out the door, but I got a seat at the bar. Omelet was excellent, iced tea really good, service friendly and efficient. Took my husband on another day for a late lunch - place was not busy at all, but service was inattentive and even hostile. Food... More

I was wandering around the city on Saturday morning and saw a line outside this place. I thought they must know something I don't, so I got in line. There were several open tables (inside and out,) but they were sitting parties in 5 minute intervals. This confused me, but I continued to wait. After 20 minutes, I was next... More

Loved sitting outside and having a great breakfast...the menu has a good variety, and the location perfect. Our server was very sweet and attentive.
