We had eggs, biscuits, gravy, bacon...the typical breakfast options, and they were stellar. They make everything from scratch... read more

Navigating restaurants with two strollers and 3 kids can be a little stressful in NYC where space is often limited. The staff at this restaurant was very helpful. We had eaten at the old location before and it was just as enjoyable this time around.

Really good food in a nice atmosphere. You can eat all the typical american breakfast food, but also some unusual and particular things. Definitely a place where to eat at brunch!

Had to wait 20 minutes for a table, but it was worth the wait. Try the bacon waffle or the pumkin french toast. Amazing!!

When we first arrived for Saturday brunch there was a wait outside. It was a little confusing because they do not take names, you stand in line and they just call next party. It was worth the wait and our food was very good. The waitress was attentive even though see was very busy.

I had a BLT omelette with mimosa at the bar. The food was very tasty and the barwoman was very attentive. Don't forget to make a reservation if you are in a party of 2+.

I've been a loyal customer for years and I don't even live in the city! A friend lived on the UWS for about 10 years and every time I would come to visit we would stand in line on Sunday morning, no matter what the weather, and wait for our seat. She moved downtown and on my latest visit I... More

We visited three times for breakfast during our week's stay in NYC - it was that good. Bacon was thick and tasty. Eggs cooked perfectly. Amazing home fries - best I've ever eaten. Servers friendly but not overbearing. Cute spot. Will return again on my next trip!

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
